After a successful career in Dallas advertising, I returned home to Little Rock to enjoy the charm of this exciting city with its vast historic district. I opened Rosement Bed & Breakfast and once it was established, I followed my heart's desire which is guest cottages. I love the lifestyle of the neighborhood, the slower pace of inn keeping, and the joy of staying home and having a wonderful world of guests come to me.
Susan Maddox purchased this cottage in 2008
Urban life has a special energy and enjoyment that isn't often offered in Bed & Breakfast and Vacation Rentals. I wanted to live this life and I thought there would be a lot of other travelers who would love it as much as I do. Well preserved and restored historic property is very special and it is a joy that I wanted many to share with me.
A calm, peaceful setting in the middle of a bustling city. We are minutes away from UAMS, two other area hospitals, the business district, the River Market, Clinton Library, plus the Hillcrest and Heights areas ... restaurants, clubs, museums, shopping ... the world within ten minutes!
We always stay at Rosemont B&B when we are in Little Rock. Our first choice is the Barkley cottage, where we have created many family memories over the past 14 years. The minute you enter the cottage, you feel as if you have lived there all your life. The decor is soothing and homey, the layout is convenient and spacious, it is always clean and cozy. I could say the same thing for all the rooms at the Inn, but we love the Barkley best because it can accomodate all our family members.
There is a formal living and dining room, a family sized kitchen, two large bedrooms and baths. The sheets are silky soft, the beds are comfy and the neighborhood is filled with beautiful old homes, so a walk is always pleasurable and safe. We also enjoy sitting in the fenced back yard, where we have shared many take-out dinners in the summer moonlight. Rosemont has all the modern conveniences, while still allowing the guests to step back in time to a slower, more genteel pace. A feeling of serenity envelopes the enitre property, as if you are visiting a beloved family member. There are times when we'd rather stay at the cottage than roam around Little Rock, curled up with a book or just talking with loved ones.
Susan, the gracious Innkeeper, is always fun to visit with and she goes out of her way to accomodate any special needs we may have with international flights, our pets or grandchildren. Her Southern breakfasts are fantastic---generous, delicious and everything is home made.
My husband says "The only thing wrong with the Barkley is when we have to leave."
Last week, Little Rock was hit by a storm that closed the airport. All hotels were booked; the roads virtually impassable. We found this place, and are very glad we did. Although we did not see the cottages, the main house is gorgeous, the rooms artfully furnished, and the beds comfortable. The owner offers a wealth of humor, wit, and graciousness. A great stay in a very stressful time.
My lover and I stayed in the Garden Cottage at the Rosemont the night before he left for a two month exploration of the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica! Neither of us would feel comfortable in a hotel room, so I was thrilled to find an affordable alternative. We felt at home upon arrival. It was so clean! It was just minutes from the Taj Mahal Indian restaurant, and the kitchenette had everything we needed to enjoy takeout. Next time we will take the time to enjoy some tea out on the balcony the next morning. I will definitely check the Rosemont first when needing a place to stay in Little Rock. Just 12 minutes from the airport!
Susan was absolutely wonderful!! The cottage was adorable. Susan was always available to answer any question I had. My husband was in the hospital and I needed the cottage for an additional night. Susan came to my rescue and I was able to stay the additional night without moving my things from one place to another. I look forward to staying and exploring other cottages Susan owns!
We've stayed in the cottages before, many times, while visiting Little Rock but this time my call for shelter was last minute. Susan booked me into a 2 bedroom/2 bath cottage. It was fantastically large with a fenced back yard, full kitchen, formal dining and living room -- and don't forget -- a nice front porch. It was truly a home away from home. My husband and I visit Little Rock every few months or so for medical reasons. We are always given a special rate. Only once did we try a downtown hotel and after a few days I gave Susan a call and moved back to the Cottages. History: on our first visit to Little Rock, we found ourselves looking at houses for sale in the neighborhood -- this decision owed much to our hostesses location and hospitality. Skip 2 years later, we found a house that we both love and are now members of the community. I don't believe we would have made this decision if we hadn't chosen to stay at the Inn and Cottages instead of a hotel. From the start, we felt like we lived in Little Rock (it felt good) and we loved the neighborhood location and the town itself. I highly recommend this property for its location which is central to everything Little Rock has to offer. And for the ease of booking, ambiance and cost. Not to forget, our Innkeeper knows how to welcome her guests. Pet friendly too.
We stayed in one of the Rosemont Cottages, with our pet, on our move from Ohio to California. We had chatted with Susan prior to booking to let her know we would have a U-Haul and she made a cottage suggestion from there. Unfortunately, a big ice storm hit during our stay which meant we either needed to tough it out with the U-Haul on the ice the next day or to stay another night. Susan was very kind and understanding of our hesitation to leave and was just fine with us staying longer. We wanted to stay another night but already pushed back our VRBO in Albuquerque so decided not to (bad idea- we got into an accident on our way to NM. U-Haul trailer brakes lock up on ice!) and Susan was more than willing to work with us. She was just a phone call or email away! Since we stayed in the B&B portion, but in a private portion, we were eligible for breakfast and it was well worth it. When we got hungry the next day, we put on our boots and made our way through the snow and ice to a local restaurant. The cottage was cozy, the bed was so warm and comfortable that we did not want to leave, and the bathroom was clean. The cottage is in the middle of an adorable historic neighborhood. The only downside to our stay was leaving! We will definitely stay here again if we are ever back in Little Rock.
