Experience the Beauty and Grandeur of the Old South
Bask in the Elegance
Rosemary's impressive exteriors with its twelve stately Corinthian columns, plantation windows, and sweeping veranda, echo the classic southern style of the antebellum era. The interiors, however, reflect the fashionable Gilded Age in which the home was completed. With high paneled ceilings, elaborate wood moldings, and the commanding English staircase, it romances guests back to the sophisticated age in which the home first thrived.
Experience the History
This majestic estate sits on the hills of North Augusta, South Carolina, overlooking the town center, the Savannah River, and downtown Augusta, Georgia. A stunning Southern mansion built in 1902, Rosemary Hall became the residence of North Augusta’s founding father and developer, James U. Jackson and his family.
Multi-Award-Winning Historic Accommodation
A commanding English staircase complete with large lighted Newell posts anchors the foyer, beckoning visitors upstairs to the six spacious boutique suites, dressed in beautiful antiques, private baths, lavish decor, and luxurious amenities. Southern hospitality flourishes as the Inn pampers guests with all the charm and serenity one expects in such a great and historic home.

2012 Top Ten Best ROMANTIC INN
My husband and I stayed two wonderful nights at the Rosemary Inn! The owners Kelly and Diana were so gracious and welcoming. We were made to feel like family that came into town for a visit. Each room has a warm and inviting feel with every attention to detail you can imagine. We stayed in the Alexander Suite which features a spacious bathroom with claw foot tub. Our bed was cozy and comfortable and when we awoke the next morning our breakfast was beyond delicious! If you need a relaxing weekend in a beautiful setting filled with warm Southern Charm this is the place for you. Thank you again Kelly and Diana that was just what we needed!
Felt Like Home

My wife and I wanted a great getaway for the weekend. We read the reviews for the Rosemary Inn Bed & Breakfast and decided to give it a try. It was one amazing weekend. Kelly and Diana met us as we arrived and gave us the great history of the building. The entire facility was immaculate. The guest rooms each have their own character...simply beautiful. The grounds are amazing and so many places where you will want to take photos. Lots of great parking. The B&B is located so close to everything but really, you could spend all of your time just exploring the building and surrounding grounds. Kelly and Diana were always available if we needed. The breakfast they prepared in the morning was superb. This place could be the best kept amazing secret in the South. So glad we discovered it and we will definitely be back. If you are looking for an awesome getaway, something truly unique and special...this is the place. Thanks Diana and Kelly for helping us to have...One Amazing Weekend.
One Amazing Weekend

One of the most beautiful and welcoming B&Bs we have had the pleasure of being guests in. The house is beautifully restored, meticulously maintained and dressed with an interior design that is both classic and functional. Kelly and Diana are gracious hosts whose personal touches throughout the house truly make you feel at home. The proximity to recreation, dining and shopping is convenient and accessible. This would be a perfect stop on your way or a beautiful weekend getaway. Rosemary Inn encompasses a wealth of history and a glimpse of its glorious past.

The Rosemary Inn is beautiful on the inside and out. We rented the "Jackson" suite which is large enough for a family of 4 for one night to attend a concert in Augusta. Kelly & Diana were fabulous hosts who told us all about the history of the Inn. If we hadn't had to rush off to the concert, I would have liked to enjoy a glass of wine on the porch before dinner. There are many places to just sit and "be" and take in the view on the porch. Diana cooked a wonderful breakfast the next morning which was quite fancy. My kids (age 12 & 9) even thought it was really neat to stay here and wanted to stay to "play" the next morning. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Rosemary to friends and I certainly hope we get the chance to stay here again. Thanks Kelly & Diana!
Wish we'd had more time to spend here!

Southern hospitality doesn’t get any better than this. Not only did we enjoy the comforts of a beautifully kept inn but also a step back in time while listening to the innkeepers share the history of the inn and town. We began each morning with a delicious breakfast and fun company and enjoyed some great meals at a few of the top-rated restaurants in the area. Rosemary is in walking distance to town, and we took advantage of a beautiful morning to bike on the Greeneway along the Savannah River. Diana and Kelly’s love of the inn and its rich history is evident. Thank you for a wonderful weekend.
Long getaway weekend

Fabulous historic building, fabulously restored and furnished, fabulously helpful couple that lovingly own and operate the inn, fabulous attention to all details, fabulous gourmet breakfast. Simply the best.

A "4-diamond", best kept secret getaway in the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA). My wife and I were looking to get away for the weekend without driving too far from home (Evans, GA ). The Rosemary Inn was a 20 minute drive from home but once we arrived, it felt like we were on a historic, distant vacation. The curb appeal immediately caught our attention! The facility was beautifully decorated. A classical and instrumental music worship mix played softly in the background to create a peaceful environment for all guests to enjoy! The delicious, gourmet breakfast was prepared by the owners each morning and served in the formal dining room area. We also had an opportunity to have breakfast served to us in a smaller, private room. Owners were very attentive and polite! We will be back again! Hats off to Kelly and Diana! HC from Evans, GA.

This home stands out as a place so special and grand along our southern journey. It's positioned in North Augusta which is a good stepping stone to wherever else you're headed in the area, and it's certainly worth getting off the beaten path to experience such ease and hospitality. Immediately upon arrival, Kelly & Diana couldn't have been more welcoming. They love their home, and it shows. The care and attention to detail is absolutely exceptional. You will be in awe of the entrance. Both of them have thought through the simple amenities one would need or crave on a journey, and they make it all available to you. Your comfort and peaceful rest is what is of utmost importance to them and they appreciate guests who understand and adore the antiquity and preservation of such a southern gem. Hands down, you will never see another porch like this, which you can experience and lounge upon yourself. During the rain, my husband and I sat lazily upon their comfortable seating and were able to experience all the sounds of a gentle south whilst protected from the rain. Be sure to spend time out there. I adored the many decorated rooms done so tastefully in honoring the prior owners of the home. And the hosts are so generous as to let guests view the unoccupied rooms. It's impossible not to fall in love with each and every one of them. Diana's knowledge on the history of this home is superior and she will tell you all you wish to know about the inn. There are eating establishments near the home which you can walk to and Augusta itself is a short drive. Breakfast in the main dining area is exquisite and done with full consideration of any food intolerances one may have. I was grateful for their attention to detail, the creativity and presentation. You will feel like a princess. We stayed within the Gentleman's Quarters room and it was absolutely the most supportive and comforting of beds I had along our stay. The room is spacious, as are most all the rooms. You simply cannot go wrong here with your choice. Kelly & Diana have a lot to offer about their town and surrounding areas, so be sure grasp their knowledge when you can. We do wish them the absolute best from Chicago, and can't thank them enough for their hospitality. We hope to visit again in the future!
