Hello- thank you for your interest in knowing about us!
We are the Washer family- Mike (dad), Melissa (mom), Regan (son) and Leah (Regan's wife). In August of 2022 we decided to take on a new business venture and purchased The Rosemary- formerly known as "8393 West Main". From our initial preview of the property, we all fell in love with this beautiful, historic building (circa 1805) and agreed that we were willing to take on this new adventure of running the wedding and event venue and boutique lodging suites (named "The Rooms Up There") as a family-team. The name, "The Rosemary", comes from our desire to honor Mike's paternal grandmother- Rosemary Ennis Washer, who was the matriarch of the Washer family. She was proudly from Louisville, Kentucky and a woman fiercely proud of, and loyal to her family, as well as her Irish heritage. That heritage is reflected throughout The Rosemary with our Irish-green signature color and 3-leaf clovers, that are part of our logo and don the doors in the building. Each of the suites that make up "The Rooms Up There" are named for Rosemary's beloved Louisville: "The Clover", "The Derby" and "The Julep". The Washer family are also owners of ICS Financial, a wealth management practice, in business for over 25 years, located in The Plains, Virginia. ICS Financial is also a family run practice. Keeping with the desire to honor "Grandma Washer", the family named their family farm for her as well- "Rosemary Farm", which is located on Rosemary Lane- and established in 2016.
Our greatest desire as a family is that all our guests experience a warm welcome and enjoy their stay at The Rosemary!
