ith its spacious front porch, three story turret and eye-browed gables, the Rose
Heart Inn is a prime example of late 19th century Queen Anne Victorian architecture.
Every room is lovingly decorated with period Victorian antiques. Original double
art glass panels and parquet floors still grace the two story foyer. The house features
all of its original leaded glass windows and doors. The large front porch, with
its swing and lots of cushioned chairs, is the perfect place to unwind with a good
book or your sweetheart.
At the Rose Heart Inn we strive to provide our guests with a comfortable and accommodating
atmosphere. In 2004 the Inn was extensively remodeled to add private owner’s quarters,
a state-of-the-art kitchen, and five guest rooms each with a private bath. Every
measure was taken to keep the architectural, period features of the home while adding
modern luxuries for the discerning traveler. “The Inn is a mix of romantic charm
and high tech wizardry…” as quoted in the Marion Star on March 14, 2005. The TV/Game
Room on the third floor offers a casual atmosphere to watch TV. Or if you want to get back to
days gone by, you can play one of the many board games.
Take a leisurely stroll downtown to Main Street and visit the local coffee shop,
bakery, restaurants, ice cream parlor, gift shops and antique stores. You can catch
a first run movie at the vintage movie theater at half the cost of going to the
city. The public library, genealogy annex and courthouse are all within a block
of the Inn. If you feel really adventurous, take an afternoon trip to some of the
area’s shopping, dining, parks and historic sites. We are convenient to Mid-Ohio
Racetrack, Mt. Gilead State Park, Pine Lakes Golf course, and the Fair Grounds.
Marion, Mansfield, and Columbus are all within a 30-40 minute drive.
Embrace history...come and experience the ambiance.
