The Dining Room

Wake up to the aroma of fresh-brewed coffee and homemade muffins or biscuits. The first course begins with a fresh fruit cup, followed by one of Rosehill Inn's signature entrees such as baked apple-peach French toast, Governor's egg casserole, pecan-banana pancakes, country sausages, and a colorful fresh fruit plate. All of this is served in a warm and friendly atmosphere.
The Wilmington Area
The Wilmington area features much more than pristine beaches, gourmet restaurants, and a vibrant, friendly shopping district. Once North Carolina's largest city, Wilmington combines balanced economic growth and resort living with historic preservation efforts to save and renovate dozens of residential and commercial structures.

Visitors in the historic district enjoy morning walks and evening carriage rides in tree-shaded neighborhoods just blocks from downtown and a sparkling riverfront. Wilmington is one of the Southeast's most exciting port cities with a rapidly expanding state university, thriving arts community, and growing film production center.

And don't be surprised if you spot some of Hollywood's biggest stars on the street or at the next table in a restaurant. With proximity to scenic vistas, crystal blue waters and artistic talent, Wilmington trails only Los Angeles and New York in the amount of revenue generated by feature film production.
