Great historic restoration that's a gem example of period architecture. The grounds are well-cared for by a local collective of volunteers, and the Bowen family history gives a glimpse into early days of industrial grandeur.
My husband and I grew up in northeast Connecticut and saw Roseland Cottage (the Pink House, as we locals say) progress through years of rehabilitation and numerous shades of pink exterior paint.

Roseland Cottage (similar to Newport "cottages") is a historic home built in 1846 for Henry Chandler Bowen and his family. The house is filled with original furnishings and pictures and the tour was led by a very knowledgeable guide. Sorry to say, it will not be open until June of 2017 until next October.

Great artists! Good food! The prices were expensive though. I know it's a lot of work, but too pricey. The food booths were awesome! Homemade foods were great and the prices were reasonable.

One would expect opulence but instead you will find rather down to earth living in the rural area............although the personal bowling alley is definitely a perk. The grounds are well cared for and wonderful for strolling into the past.
This lovely summer cottage for newspaper man Henry Bowen is virtually unchanged. He hosted many important people of the times. Civil war era, President Grant enjoyed visiting there..the house is to remain forever rose hued.
My husband and I had a wonderful time at the Roseland Cottage Victorian Fair. There were lots of interesting booths to see outside and the house tour was delightful. Looking forward to seeing the Lipizzans!
