It was a busy wedding weekend and each night as family/friends headed to hotels, I was so grateful to head to Kathy's. It was like heading for home. The BB is as advertised. It was clean, comfortable beds, easy to get interstates and larger towns, yet, secluded. Breakfasts were plentiful. It was a treat to sit on the patio for breakfast. There was even little touches ... plenty of towels, bottled water, etc. Yet, what makes a BB in my opinion, is the host. Kathy was so gracious and sincere. I had a rough drive over the mountains and she was very patient as my arrival time was pushed back. When I needed assistance with locating an automotive person to locate a shop open on weekends (construction pothole on my way). It put me at ease. She was also helpful with suggestions on places to see. I would highly suggest this BB. I will be returning when I visit friends.

The Rose Suite is a very charming place, beautifully decorated, gorgeous views and with all the amenities you could ever desire. The breakfast was super delicious served on a wonderful deck overlooking the countryside. And Kathy, the hostess, is not a bit intrusive, but is always behind the scenes making sure the guests are well taken care of. She is a delight to talk to as well. I would definitely send my friends and go again myself. It is close to Shepherdstown and Sharpsburg and Antietam Battlefield and close to DC.

Our stay at Rose Cottage was just what we had hoped for. We were attending an event at Saint James School and touring Antietam Battlefield so this was super convenient: just a few minutes away from both. The room was big and clean, perfect for us to set up a pack'n'play for our toddler. It was also nice to have access to a common room for a little extra space. Kathy was such a gracious host! She had cookies waiting for our arrival, and the mini fridge stocked with water was so clutch on a hot day! She even brought out a stroller for the baby to ride around in. The breakfast was fantastic and was served on the deck with a beautiful view. It was a great way to start the day. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in the Hagerstown area and hope to have an opportunity to return ourselves. Thanks, Kathy!

Lovely lovely stay! Spacious, quiet, clean and easy check in and check out. The breakfast on the patio was exceptional. If you need to stay in the Hagerstown area, skip the chain hotels and stay just a few miles out in the country. We will definitely stay again if we are back in the area!

Kathy was wonderful and we felt welcome as soon as we arrived. The accommodations were very nice and comfortable. Kathy made us delicious food for breakfast. We enjoyed our time at the B&B.

It was such a pleasure staying at the Rose Cottage. My boyfriend and I had the escape we needed beyond what we could have ever expected. From the fresh cut roses, delicious home made cookies, to the amazing breakfast spread Kathy made us feel right at home. The room itself and the shared living room had a wonderfully set up with anything and everything we could want. We hope to escape to this oasis again :)

My wife and I stayed at Kathy’s B&B over Memorial Day weekend, when I wanted to work on section hiking the Appalachian Trail and she wanted a comfortable place nearby to work on her dissertation. Rose Hill Cottage demanded a bigger financial commitment than we initially had in mind, but we had limited options and decided to splurge.

Kathy User Profile

Our cottage has been a dream come true over the past 12 years. My husband of 30 years and I have designed and finished every detail ourselves and we continue to develop the gardens to reflect a whimsical and romantic style. After raising a family, we're eager for the next leg of the journey, sharing our home and region with others who want to travel in authentic ways. We are passionate about gourmet cooking, organic gardening, and conservation. You'll notice we care about details - rain barrels, our geothermal heating/cooling system, and energy-friendly appliances. We look forward to making new friends, learning about new cultures, and enjoying this renaissance time in our lives.
