Six sinks for six rooms! We’re chipping away at the restoration of our guest rooms. This week marks the completion of hand-restoring vintage sinks dating back to 1923. Our favorites are stamped 1938, the year The Red Rose opened its doors. What projects are you tackling this weekend? See us in the tavern Friday-Sunday 3-10pm.

today, we still recognize and honor our heritage with the annual jubilee carnival, the dragon on the lake races, and even our tagline "where living is a vacation".⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
