Rose Hill Inn
Terry Sullivan

Rose Hill Inn bed and BreakfastLocated on three acres near horse farms, Rose Hill Inn is a perfect location for the wine and bourbon traveler. The mansion was built in 1823 and offers a parlor, library, front porch and ample room to roam the grounds.


Built in 1823, the house was first a residence of Dr. William Terrell. It was originally called “Rose Hill.” During the Civil War, both the North and the South occupied the house. It was used as a hospital and it is believed that stains on the floor were from the blood of wounded soldiers. After the Civil War, the house was rented to the principal of a girls school. In 1877 the house was purchased as a wedding gift for Lucie Graddy who married Edmund. M. Wallace. During this time there were several renovations of the house. Lucie and Edmund dressed the house up and made it into an elegant Victorian House. Several other owners have cared for the house through the years. It became a bed and breakfast in 1992.

We spent the evening in the Miss Lucie’s room. The spacious room had a comfortable bed and seating area. Both the television and wireless Internet worked well. The bathroom was also very spacious with a wonderful Jacuzzi.

An upstairs sitting room is a cozy place to read. You can make tea, coffee and hot chocolate at a side bar. The outdoor area has a large veranda and beautiful landscaped grounds.

Breakfast is served in the dining room. We had tea and juice for beverages. Our breakfast began with a fruit cup. The main course was an egg soufflé topped with sour cream and mango salsa on the side. A fresh roll and slices of cantaloupe completed the breakfast.
