With structures dating back as far as 1883, the Fairmount Southside Historic District comprises one of the richest collections of turn-of-the-century houses in the state. Nestled in the heart of this one-mile stretch is The Rosen House Inn, a 1910 Victorian home with a wraparound porch that spans the entire abode, overlooking both the manicured shrubs of the front gardens and the glittering water of the pool in the back. As they tend to the historic house, hostess Kelly Bowden and her helpful canine companion, Chloe, ensure that guests' stays are fully savored by providing luxurious amenities including handmade soaps by Anne's Naturally, breakfast with coffee from Forth Worth's Locally Roasted, and complimentary belly scratches.
Downstairs, rooms are trimmed with dark mahogany, colored with opulent gold tones, and punctuated by rich period furnishings. Upstairs, airy guest rooms brim with vibrant colors and crisp white linens amuse themselves with games of cat's cradle beneath ample streams of sunlight. The Inn's verdant grounds lie within walking distance of restaurants on West Magnolia Avenue and a short jaunt to the coliseum, TCU, and the Fort Worth Zoo.
