The Rosemont Inn is a beautifully restored 1881 brick mansion constructed with the finest examples of Indiana native hardwood craftsmanship.

The Inn is a repository of antique Eastlake period furniture. The wooden swing on the front porch is a great place to spend an afternoon watching the Ohio river flow by the beautifully sloping front lawn. If you enjoy history you will find Rosemont fascinating.

You can spend hours looking through our scrapbooks filled with the history of the home and the Hay Kings who developed Southern Indiana's riverboat trade. The Inn houses a collection of 18th and 19th century museum quality artwork consisting of landscapes and early American portraits. We are located 7 miles from the Belterra Riverboat Casino, and are within 23 miles of four major wineries.

Rosemont is located on 2 1/2 acres on the banks of the Ohio River in Southern Indiana’s historic Switzerland County. Vevay Indiana is a sleepy little river village of about 1800 souls. The town the river and the rolling hills and farms around it are much as they where in the 1800's when the “Hay Trade” built Rosemont. The area has an abundance of county and State parks nearby, only 6 miles upriver is the Markland Dam and river lock. Maybe you’ll be lucky and see the famous Mississippi or Delta Queens locking through.

If fast gambling action is your game: Belterra Casino provides riverboat gambling, 5 gourmet restaurants, day spa, and a championship 18 hole golf course.

If you’re a racing fan, Kentucky Speedway is an 80,000 seat NASCAR and CART racetrack just up the hill in Sparta KY. Maybe you’ve seen one of their races on ESPN, or FOX TV.

All these attractions are within a 5 to 15 minute drive of Rosemont. So come relax and restore balance to your life by spending a couple of days in Vevay. Or go for the excitement. The choice is yours.


Your Stay at Rosemont

From the moment you arrive at Rosemont Inn you will realize you have been transported back to a gentler and grander era. The entry hallway and etched glass front doors will greet and introduce you to the ornately carved hardwoods that abound in this stately 1881 mansion. The Persian carpets, luxurious leather library sofas, working fireplaces, and period American portraiture and landscape oils awake the senses dulled by the world of cell phones, ipods and Blackberrys. The luxuriously appointed guest rooms emphasize the Inn’s goal which is to provide a level of ambiance and comfort not commonly found. One of the most often heard comments made by our guests is how "beautiful and cozy" Rosemont is.
