Historic Rosemont Manor
Historic Rosemont Manor, built in 1811, was once the home of former Virginia Governor and US Senator, Harry F. Byrd, Sr. During the Byrd Family’s tenure at Rosemont, the manor became a place of respite for many dignitaries and celebrities, as well as five US Presidents. After thirteen years of painstaking restoration, Historic Rosemont Manor opened its doors September 2010 to the general public for the first time in over 200 years. Now beautifully restored, Rosemont is now Northern Virginia’s premier Bed & Breakfast and Wedding/Special Events venue. Rosemont, winner of WeddingWire’s 2012 Bride’s Choice Award, offers multiple indoor and outdoor ceremony sites for every type of event from grand wedding galas to simple, intimate elopements. The main manor and the other impeccably maintained buildings on the property are also perfectly suited for all types of corporate meetings and retreats. Our elegant guestrooms, suites, and cottages also allow you to stay at Rosemont overnight for the perfect “getaway”. Come make Rosemont a part of your history today.
Names of the US presidents and other historical figures who visited the Byrd’s during their dominance in US politics — Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Churchill, Lindbergh, Einstein — adorn the various guestrooms and suites. All twelve rooms are individually decorated using luxurious fabrics, rich colors and period furnishings and have private bathrooms (with either original claw foot bathtubs, soaking tubs, or showers), queen beds, in-room telephone systems, ihome ipod stations and wireless internet access. The cottages on the property are also impeccably decorated with both modern conveniences and historic charm.
Overnight guests start the morning with a lovely Virginia-style breakfast. Corporate and family group functions can range from large receptions with passed hors d’oeuvres and open bar to intimate wine dinners. From wedding rehearsal dinners on the grand portico to bridal luncheons in the carriage house–the options and themes are virtually limitless. The stellar reputation of Rosemont’s cuisine and professional staff will provide you with a quality event in an elegant setting. Please contact us to plan your culinary event.
