Rose Mansion Bed and Breakfast Inn

Rose Mansion

Welcome to Salado and the
Rose Mansion

Just quiet class.....
Nestled among towering oaks, elms and persimmon trees, this traditional Greek Revival style mansion, complimentary cottages and log cabins are located on two acres of landscaped grounds surrounded by a picturesque picket fence.

The setting is perfect for croquet, watching the world drift by or discovering the grandeur of Mother Nature from a hammock or swing.....it's a place that is both charming and inviting.

Rose Mansion Garden

One of the shaded seating areas

The grounds offer a mini tour of early Texas dwellings. Texas markers and one National Register marker attest to the authenticity of the Rose Mansion, two beautifully restored log cabins, a summer kitchen cottage and a larger Greek Revival cottage.

The main home, built in 1870 by Major A.J. Rose, has four bedrooms (three have fireplaces), a grand parlour, an elegant dining room and a cozy country kitchen. The mansion is complimented with Rose family memorabilia and authentic antiques.

A windmill with a cypress storage tank, a rock smoke house and an old wagon are nostalgic reminders of the past. Shaded seating areas, swings and hammocks located across the grounds compliment these accommodations.

No wonder the Mansion was featured in the June 1996, February and November 1999 issues of Southern Living Magazine!

Rose Mansion Sun Room

The Sun Room

The Sun Room, a popular addition to the Rose Mansion, has been added for your enjoyment. A great place to visit, make friends, play cards, relax with a cup of coffee, etc.
