Laboratory Mill Weddings

We had such a great time in Lincolnton! We loved exploring the area and learning the history of this little town. We had a blast celebrating the marriage of two of our favorite people at the Laboratory Mill. And we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the White Rose Manor.

Thank you for everything!

Friendship & Heartfelt Memories

Though not often, we do have returning guests.

It is our hope that when new visitors arrive at the White Rose Manor as guests, they leave as friends. When we have returning guests, it often blossoms into long-term friendships. This is just one of the many friends we have because they happened upon us on a visit to Lincolnton. We are so grateful for all of our guests.

Our heartfelt thanks once again, dearest Allison and John,

Your wonderful Manor– so much to say . . . a place that provides such a welcoming, comfortable, eye-pleasing, palate-pleasing– place of respite, a place of joy.

With every stay there are new discoveries, new stories, new memories to keep.

Our love and appreciation,

K & R

English-style: ‘Just Like This!’

My English mum would be proud to know it is so.

We tried to bring a bit of ‘home’ to Lincolnton. According to this guest, we nailed it!

Thank you Allison and John for the enjoyable time in your lovely English-style Manor. My husband did not accompany me to England so did not know how it was there . . . just like this! Am so glad we could experience this together and we will be back and he will want to keep in touch. We’ll spread the word that Lincolnton has a lot to offer.

Waking Up with “Miss Peggy”

When you have beautiful roses like “Miss Peggy” (named for Peg Mauney who lived here), it is wonderful to find someone else who was in just the right place at just the right time for the show.

Waking up in my majestic bed in the Grandstaff Room, the daylight seeping through the blindings, beautiful roses catching my eye and the smell of good coffee seeping through from the kitchen below– I’m gonna miss all this so very much!

Thank you for making our stay so wonderful, Allison. I hope to come back again someday.

Home Away from Home

There are many times that our guests have the chance to stay for more than a day or two. We cherish these times as we see them begin to unwind and find some true relaxation. We had the privilege of having a group of three siblings stay for a week while visiting family in Lincolnton. They were delightful guests, and we were delighted they found time to unwind and spend some brother/sister time in the house and gardens. Here are some sentiments they shared in our guestroom memory books about their stay:

Dear John and Allison ~

Thank you so much for your hospitality. You have treated us like family since Day One and we loved every minute of it and our stay.


You are the sweetest and most helpful hosts one can ever imagine.

You made us a beautiful bouquet of flowers for our cousin’s burial site, you had our entire family over for dinner one night, and you treated us like kings and queens.


We consider this our home away from home. The rooms are gorgeous and the beds are so comfortable. We had our first evening next to the fireplace, drinking Allison’s delicious homemade tea, and every morning we enjoyed her lovely homecooked breakfast.

We are over the moon and under the sun about this place.

Berry Peachy Morning Shadows

The morning is warm. Even as early at 6 a.m., it is warm. We welcome the soothing morning shadows. Fresh peaches and blackberries are bathed in the shadow of a Queen Anne chair. Life is good.

Breakfast awaits our Bed & Breakfast guests with the promise of Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict to follow. Life is good. Come . . . let us show you how good it can be.
