The town of Marshall boasts over 850 historic buildings from the 19th century and is the largest National Historic Landmark District of its category in the nation. Fine restaurants, antique and gift shops, museums and recreation areas are all conveniently in town, while golf courses, an amusement park, and a zoo are minutes away.
The Rose Hill Inn's twelve-foot ceilings, tall windows with lovely views, fireplaces, and fine antique furnishings combine to create a mood of tranquility and escape from the modern world.
Once the home of William Boyce, founder of the Boy Scouts of America, this spacious villa is the perfect place to celebrate an anniversary or birthday, host an elegant wedding, hold a business meeting, or simply escape for a getaway weekend.
Situated on over three acres of landscaped grounds once owned by author James Fenimore Cooper, Rose Hill offers guests the opportunity to enjoy the private tennis court or swimming pool (open from May - October), stroll in the gardens, or find their own place to relax, whether pool side, on a shaded patio at an umbrella table, on the open porch bordered with roses, or on the screened porch with a wicker swing (where the resident cat can usually be found napping).
Breakfast at Rose Hill is an elegant affair. It is usually served between 9:00 and 10:00, and guests come when they wish. It always includes juice, yogurt, home-made muffins or breads, cereal, fresh seasonal fruit, hard-boiled eggs, and a hot entree. This may be our special Carmel-Apple French Toast with sausages, South Carolina Sweet Potato Pancakes, omelets made to order, or other wonderful dishes which have become favorites of our guests. Special diets may be accommodated with advance notice.
Six guest rooms are decorated in Victorian style with vintage prints, lace curtains, and antique lighting, but with modern luxuries: private baths, central air, and in-room cable TV and phones. Ample choices for inside relaxation include two formal parlors and a cozy upstairs den. A small antique shop may lure you downstairs, where you will also find a card room and a billiard room.
Marshall is located in Southern Michigan at the intersection of Interstates 94 and 69, just east of Battle Creek.
