Good News! The Roof is done and we just restored and refinished the hardwood floors on the main floor of Cedar Rose Inn. They are both beautiful! And to celebrate, we are offering a FREE bottle of Wine during the months of February and March to any guests coming to our inn! Besides, it is a very special because, the wine is made exclusively from our 2011 Vintage grapes at Cedar Rose Wild Vineyards. Carlos Creek Winery made a special exclusive White Marquette from our grapes this year and have just bottled and released it for enjoyment. Our white wines from our own cellar are also ready and we think they are very special also. Come and celebrate!

Momma Roberta left so you could get a peak of our naked bodies. Our mouths are big for a reason….so we can eat some of those delicious morsels that mom brings us from the Cedar Rose Inn compound. We plan to leave as soon as we get our wings or the innkeeper kicks us out. Before that happens, come and enjoy a little close-up birdwatching before breakfast or an evening of relaxation on the porch swing.
