Life At The Rosary Grafton Bed And Breakfast Accommodation
Life At The Rosary PET FRIENDLY Grafton Bed And Breakfast!
Accommodation with en-suite and kitchenette in each room.
From the moment you make contact with “Grafton Bed and Breakfast” you will realize that this place has something special to offer. Just a phone call will reveal the charming, helpful nature of John Melenhorst who has been in Grafton for 55 years, and has owned the Rosary for 35 of those years.
The Rosary had been a much loved family home and on the death of John’s wife he decided to give up building and turn his big friendly home into a guest house.
Not only did it allow this charming home to be shared and enjoyed by guest from all corners of the world, but it also gave John a purpose in life and an outlet for his gregarious nature!
If you are interested in the history of Grafton you have come to the right place.
The Rosary “Grafton Bed and Breakfast” is a charming Federation home built in 1905 and maintained in original style.
As you pull up at the horseshoe drive, you can take in the fabulous Rose Garden, which fills the air with the wonderful aroma that only fresh flowers can bring.
Nearly a hundred standard roses are maintained at the Rosary though there were 1000 back in the hey day of the Hockey family, who built and owned this lovely old home when life was elegant and slower. John opened his home as a guest house and B & B 10 years ago, with the express purpose of providing “good old fashioned hospitality.” So if you are looking for that touch of home and a feeling for the past, there it is, in a secret hideaway right in the middle of Grafton!
The original building has been lovingly restored by John, doors, windows, mouldings and ceilings are in their original state, the colours are Heritage Specification and as some of the building material was imported from Italy back at the turn of the century and cannot be replaced, the home has been designated a Building of Significance and is on the National Heritage Register.
