Dining & Special Recipes

The Rosewood's dining room has spectacular views of the gardens, pond and waterfall. What a wonderful way to start off the morning! Not only does Chef Lesley use vegetables and herbs grown on-site, there is also a strong focus on local ingredients. The Rosewood uses local cheeses and fresh-from-the-farm eggs, and maple syrup made right from the Inn's sugar bush. Be sure to check out their on-line recipes and Chef Lesley's two cookbooks when visiting the Inn.

Brunch at the Rosewood Country Inn

The enduring appeal of owning a country inn or B&B draws more and more people every year. Some manage to fulfill their dream, while many more just visit for weekends and vacations to relax and breathe in the fresh New Hampshire air before returning, restored, to town or city. While it may not be possible to come up every season, you can still enjoy the memorable breakfasts served each morning at the Rosewood Country Inn from 8-9:30 am on weekends, and 8-9 am weekdays.
