Built-in the heart of the beautiful Alexandria lakes area, the Cedar Rose Inn is a beautiful historically registered home that offers the perfect romantic hideaway, weekend escape, or business trip getaway. The inn was built in 1903 by Noah P. Ward, one of Alexandria’s most successful businessmen in an exclusive residential area of Alexandria named the “Silk Stocking District.” Today, the home still retains its original exterior structure with oversized gables and diamond-paned windows. The interior design includes a collection of antiques, original maple wood floors, oak woodwork and numerous stained glass windows. You will be greeted by an arched oak doorway, a vast open staircase and a Tiffany chandelier, which are all reminiscent of the early part of the century. The walls in the living room and dining room have sculpted plaster in the acorn and leaf motif and trailing vines and leaves… a traditional symbol of hospitality. You are invited to curl up in the parlor with a classical book or relax in a window seat nook by a warm crackling fire. You may decide to enjoy an evening on the veranda swing or sit out by the pond and watch the goldfish and ducks.
In the morning, you’ll savor a delicious breakfast in the Dining room. Breakfasts include such treats as fresh fruit, pancakes, egg dishes and many more.
