Inn Description: Located on the National Historic Register, the house was built in 1855. The original style was Greek Revival with four two story square columns and arched windows and doors. Through the years, Rosewood Inn has retained the charm of the Victorian Era.
The proximity of the house to Corning Hospital led to its ownership by doctors. From 1907 through 1979 it was owned by physicians who lived, raised their families and practiced medicine here.
About 1917 both the interior and the exterior were renovated into what was the then popular English Tudor style, remaining so today.
"An Outstanding Reputation For Pampering People Since 1980."
In 1980 the professional rooms on the ground floor became bedroom suites. The entire house was restored to its Victorian splendor as a bed & breakfast inn.
In the autumn of 1991, Stewart and Suzanne Sanders came from New Jersey to Corning, New York. After falling in love with the area, they purchased the inn in April of 1992. They invite you to come and enjoy the Finger Lakes Region and look forward to helping you make your visit to Corning a most enjoyable experience.
