  • Restrooms in the East Tenant Cottage are fully wheelchair accessible.
  • The parking lots and paths are mostly gravel and the landscape is somewhat uneven, so we recommend wearing comfortable, non-slip shoes.
  • Limited seating is available at points during the tour.
  • Accessing the second floor requires climbing stairs. There are photos and information about the upstairs rooms available for anyone who cannot manage the stairs.
  • Please contact us with any questions or concerns about accessibility before the day of your tour. We want to do all we can to accommodate your group’s needs.

Bus Entrance and Parking

  • Rose Hill can only be accessed from the south.
  • If coming from the north, follow Route 96A South for about 1.5 miles.  Since Rose Hill on can only be accessed from the south you will drive past it.  At the turnaround at East Lake Road (near Ventosa Vineyards), turn left and left again onto Route 96A North. Rose Hill is a quarter mile down on the right.
  • Enter at the second driveway by the Entrance sign.  Follow the semi-circular drive around to the right and park in front of the Visitor Center.
