Step Inside Rose Hill Inn’s History and Architectural Splendor

Nestled in downtown Versailles and originally known as the Terrell House or the Rose Hill Estate, this distinguished landmark was built in 1823, making it the first structure on Rose Hill Avenue and a namesake for the charming thoroughfare. Initially constructed in the Federal Style, it underwent a transformation in 1877, embracing Victorian influences. The fanned entrance and Palladian windows gave way to cornice heads and round-arched hood molds, while the roofline was raised to accommodate strikingly pitched bracketed gables.

Throughout the changes, our Kentucky B&B has maintained its authentic character, boasting exquisite Flemish-bond brickwork and preserving much of the interior’s original charm. Today, it offers Versailles, KY lodging that embodies its rich history.
