Built in 1914 in a picturesque rivertown, the River Rose Inn Bed & Breakfast is unique and
gracious with spectacular views of the dazzling Ohio River. This
was the lovely historic home of Ed Wall, a direct descendant of James McFarlan, who founded
and named the town after his wife, Elizabeth in 1812.
At the River Rose Inn Bed & Breakfast, we offer luxurious accommodations and our
gourmet breakfasts are served in the formal dining room.
Inside the inn you may relax in the formal living room or the
cozy parlor on the second floor. Our wraparound mosaic
tile porch provides the perfect excuse to watch the paddle wheelers and barges meander
by or simply delight in the morning and evening breezes under the Magnolia
Treat yourself to an invigorating swim in our large inground swimming
pool or pamper yourself with hydrotherapy in our outdoor private Jacuzzi
Spa overlooking the river. (Seasonal)
