At Home B&B - Rose Manor

The Rose Manor: combining vintage beauty with moderm design. Photo: Tanya Woodhead and Nathan Yee, 2013.



   Originally owned by the man that contributed to the nickname, the “Rose City”, At Home Bed and Breakfast aims to provide a sense of history, and comfort of having a home away from home. Ellie and Gary Hodder focus on reviving the vintage aesthetic of the house through comfortable furnishing, artefacts dating back to the original owner, and maintaining the functionality of the original layout; all while complementing the house with their kind-hearted, serving hearts.

Historical information

   Originally owned and maintained by Colonel Hugh Alexander Rose had this house built for him in 1906. Col. Rose was heavily involved in the Canadian Forces during the first World War and left to serve in England and France serving  in a few different battalions and labour groups. On November 28th, 1918 in London, he suffered a fractured ulna (forearm) and was discharged from archive service. Upon arriving back home, he spent much of his time involved with gardening and was a generous donor of his roses to the City of Welland; which contributed to the nickname, “Rose City”. Col. Hugh Alexander’s roses were even welcomed by President Hoover, the 31st President of the United States. In the photo gallery, you will find a picture of the two together after a large donation to the White House.


Ecological information

   The owners nurture a rose garden that remains close to the roots that Col. Rose planted when he owned the house. The simple rose garden brings timeless beauty and reminders to to pride of the Rose City.
