Welcome to Rose Hill Inn, one of Kentucky's finest bed and breakfasts, only 15 minutes west of Lexington, Kentucky, in Versailles. Built in 1823, this historic home has been wonderfully renovated, but features of the original mansion are preserved and enhanced. The parlor, library, front porch, and 3 acres of grounds are all for your enjoyment. Rose Hill was built about 1823 and is the oldest home in the Historical District. The original structure was a federal style home, but many changes occurred in the 1880's to make it as it appears today. It is reported that both North and South occupied the grounds during the Civil War. Blood stains, which were discovered when the floors were refinished, testify to the use of the home as a hospital for the wounded. It first became a bed and breakfast in 1992 after much refurbishing. The current innkeepers, Alder and Gill Blackburn, became owners in 2007. Has Launched! is a human-curated, invitation only

presentation of select historic lodging accommodations,

including bed & breakfasts, inns, hotels and lodges worldwide.


Historic lodging facilities (Stays) are demonstrably

significant to world history with respect to their architecture,

engineering, archeology or culture, as well as their location,

design, materials, workmanship, feeling or association.

Historic bed & breakfasts, inns, hotels and lodges offer

travelers a truly unique and memorable lodging experience.


They provide visitors a genuine opportunity to

connect with the past, while enjoying restful lodging,

excellent cuisine, gracious hospitality and more.


Sadly, countless historically significant structures

have been (and continue to be) lost forever.


Many of those that endure, do so largely because of the

vision, passion and dedication of devoted and enterprising

proprietors, companies and others, who (usually after great effort

and expense) offer them as living, interactive lodging facilities

reflecting the rich historical fabric within which they are woven.
