Rose Cottage Bed and Breakfast

The cottage now has a wireless high speed internet connection for your laptop computer. We are also offering special packages to the business traveler.

Rose Cottage Bed and Breakfast is a wonderful romantic hideaway for couples.  The cottage is situated in the gently rolling hills of Southeastern Indiana in the quaint little village of Canaan.  Imagine the serenity of sitting on the porch holding hands or going for a short walk through the calm, picturesque village.

If you crave a faster paced atmosphere, Madison is just a short 15 minute drive along scenic route 62.  Madison is known nationally for it unique architecture and commitment to preserving and restoring its beautiful downtown area.  In July, the river comes to life with the annual hydroplane boat races, followed by the beautiful colors of autumn and the annual Canaan festival attracting over 10,000 people during the 3 day event.

Your hosts at the Rose Cottage Bed and Breakfast are Norma and Fred Tuttle.  Mrs. Tuttle is a retired school teacher from Canaan Elementary and provides a full breakfast or some of her famous “made from scratch” muffins and sweet breads.

Mr. Tuttle is an accomplished woodworker and cabinetmaker.  He not only built the cottage, but he carefully crafted all of the furniture, woodwork and doors in the cottage.

The cottage has a large bedroom with a queen-sized bed, dish television, and a small sofa. There is a small table with two chairs for guests to sit and have coffee or snacks. The bedroom also has a corner Jacuzzi tub in a beautifully appointed alcove. There is a full separate bath with a shower. The garden room has a smaller television, a microwave, a small refrigerator and a coffee maker.

Rose Cottage and my home are for sale. We will remain open until we sell, and we look forward to providing our guests with a wonderful stay. We will be booking up to 60, days in advance, since that is how long we plan to remain open after the sale. This is a great opportunity for someone to continue to build a business, or use the large cottage as a rental to pay your mortgage payment. The cottage can be purchased with or without the custom made furnishings. You can call Century 21 Realty (812.273.1234) and ask for Janice Lyon for more details.
