The Rosewood Country Inn Bed and Breakfast is nestled on
12 hilltop acres in the charming town of Bradford in the Mt. Sunapee Lake

inn for hot mulled cider and to warm by the fire. Snuggle up in an
overstuffed chair with a good book in front of a crackling fireplace.
The Tavern Room windows glow with candlelight and the
air is pungent with wood smoke. It is the kind of place that beckons you
to hurry inside on a snowy night. The fireplaces blaze brightly and the
candles cast flickering shadows.
Mt. Sunapee and Pat’s Peak are all within minutes of
the inn, snow shoe or cross country from the front door on our woodland
trails. For the not-so-adventurous there’s ice skating or a romantic
sleigh ride nearby.
"Mr. & Mrs. Edward Messer opened their home in
1896 with 6 guests. Rates were $5.00-7.00 a week and references were
required. As business increased buildings were enlarged and cottages were
added. At one time as many as eighty-five guests could be accommodated.
Entertainment was provided by a bowling alley, a dance hall, golf course,
and a casino. In addition to the house, tents were provided on raised
floorings set among shade trees."
The Messer Family continued to operate the inn, then known
as Pleasant View Farm, until 1956. In the early 1900’s, Jack London,
Gloria Swanson, Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks, Mr. & Mrs. Charlie
Chaplan and the Gish Sisters (Lillian & Dorothy) are among the famous
signatures that appeared in the guest registers.
