Built in 1915, after being a private home for many years, the piece of history that was built as a duplex has become The Rose Petal Inn. It is located in historic, Geneva, New York, by the shores of Seneca Lake, in the heart of the beautiful Finger Lakes Region.
The Rose Petal Inn rests in a quiet, residential neighborhood, steps from downtown Geneva and the gateway to the Seneca Lake Wine Trail, with over 100 wineries, the Finger Lakes Cheese Trails, and some of the most beautiful scenic drives in the country. It is just a few minutes from Hobart and William Smith Colleges, New York State's Cornell Agricultural Experiment Station (NYSAES), the Waterloo Shopping Outlets, and some of the best lake trout fishing in the country.
As a tribute to Rossana's Grandmother, The Rose Petal Inn was named as such because of the so many wonderful moments Rossana spent helping her in the rose gardens she had in London, England.
