Visit Rose Hill to experience the charm of Aiken’s most originally preserved “Winter Colony” estate. The property encompasses a city block, yet the ambience is intimate and the elegance is restrained. Rose Hill is a regional treasure located on the highest elevation of the original Aiken plateau and just two blocks from the bustling commercial district. It is the first property in Aiken listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and is where the Garden Club of South Carolina began 75 years ago. During Aiken’s early resort era America’s two largest wooden structures were located just to the north and south of Rose Hill. The two hotels (Park In The Pines and Highland Park) no longer exist; yet Rose Hill continues beyond its 100th year as a quintessential expression of Old Aiken Gardens and Gilded Age Architecture. The enchanting old world chapel seats 60 and is adorned with a mural sized German-Romantic painting, wood beamed rafters and medieval-styled leaded windows. The Main House has available seven bedrooms and two suites for overnight accommodations. The furnished Guest House has 3 bathrooms, 2 kings, 1 queen, 3 sleeper sofas, 2 courtyards and a large kitchen. Rose Hill is an ideal retreat for individuals and groups, providing the perfect place to start an exploration of the charming downtown and surrounding areas. Nature and history have long conspired at Rose Hill to create abounding beauty, both sublime and astonishing. Together the historical feel, positive energy, impressive gardens and numerous indoor and outdoor locations make Rose Hill a fabulous destination and the ideal location for Accommodations, Meetings, Reunions, Fundraisers, Weddings, and Receptions. For many years the 10,000 sq.ft. Shingle-Style Dutch Colonial was the restful retreat for diplomats, scholars, financiers and captains of industry. Now you can relax overnight, walk the gardens at leisure, unwind in the Sheffield bar, sit on the garden terrace and be spoiled with a lavish breakfast with the same graciousness of a bygone era.
