Built at the turn of the century by Joseph H. DeHart, the house faced the site of the famed Mountain Rose Distillery Number 250. One of the few legal distilleries in the state of Virginia, the Mountain Rose, known for "honest goods" and "full measure," produced such delicacies as "Old Ike" rye whiskey, "Mountain Dew" corn whiskey, and "Pride of Virginia" corn whiskey. The quality of goods produced by the Mountain Rose was so good, it is said to have supplied the White House with spirits during Prohibition!
The house itself is another example of Old Joe's attention to detail. Designed in the shape of a "T" with porches on every exterior wall, the house is built entirely of wood cut and dried on the property and bricks made from clay and placed in a kiln which had been specially built to fire them. It features a metal roof, Victorian embellishments and tongue and groove woodwork.

In 1992, the Mountain Rose Bed and Breakfast Inn, in the "honest goods: tradition of Number 250", opened in full bloom and hosted its first overnight guests!

Each morning, by the glow of the oil lamp, breakfast is elegantly served on antique silver and china. This four course meal includes our own blend of fresh ground coffee, low fat granola, seasonal fruits and/or homemade breads, and seasonal house favorites such as blueberry stuffed French toast, mushroom omelets, buttermilk pancakes with brown sugar pecan sauce, and bacon or sausage.
In the afternoon, depending upon the season, minted ice tea, lemonade, cocoa, hot cider, a variety of coffees and teas, and sherry along with an assortment of snacks and homemade goodies are available for enjoying on the porch, by the pool, or by the warmth of the fire in our cozy parlor, complete with satellite TV and plenty of videos and board games.
For those of you traveling on business, the Inn offers special corporate rates, faxing and copying services, wireless internet access and a private phone. Small meetings, luncheons and soirees may be planned with advanced notice. The inn is also available for small weddings.
