We look forward to enhancing your next experience in historic Bardstown, KY!
We encourage you to stay with us during your visit to historic Bardstown, Nelson County, Kentucky. Rosemark Haven (Bruntwood) was designed and built in the early nineteenth century, and now offers a unique lodging experience in an old plantation home that has been thoughtfully re-stored over the decades to reflect living in the mid-1800s. This makes staying or having a tea in Kentucky extra special. The interior of Rosemark Haven is appointed with period antiques, and is decorated similarly. Rosemark sits on the edge of what was colonial Bardstown - but is still within easy walking distance to the town's main street shopping district
