About Susan Maddox

After a successful career in Dallas advertising, I returned home to Little Rock to enjoy the charm of this exciting city with its vast historic district. I opened Rosement Bed & Breakfast and once it was established, I followed my heart's desire which is guest cottages. I love the lifestyle of the neighborhood, the slower pace of inn keeping, and the joy of staying home and having a wonderful world of guests come to me.

Susan Maddox purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Susan Maddox chose Downtown

Urban life has a special energy and enjoyment that isn't often offered in Bed & Breakfast and Vacation Rentals. I wanted to live this life and I thought there would be a lot of other travelers who would love it as much as I do. Well preserved and restored historic property is very special and it is a joy that I wanted many to share with me.

What makes this cottage unique

A calm, peaceful setting in the middle of a bustling city. We are minutes away from UAMS, two other area hospitals, the business district, the River Market, Clinton Library, plus the Hillcrest and Heights areas ... restaurants, clubs, museums, shopping ... the world within ten minutes!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a treat! Staying in the Barkley Cottage was an unexpected dream come true. It took me awhile to notice the open door off the dining room, but lo and behold a second bathroom! We thoroughly loved every moment of our stay. Thank you for all the shucking and jiving you did to make it all possible.

We stayed at both the Winslow and the Barkley. The host made sure we had what we needed daily. I loved the tub in the Winslow, took a bath every night! If u want to read, tons of books, if u want tv or if u just want quiet. I definitely look forward to my next visit.

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place in a great location. Just down from The Root Cafe, which is worth the stroll down the street. We came in for Little Rock Marathon and we just walked down to the start line and didn’t have to worry about parking. The place was very clean and the street was quite. Seems to be an up and coming area of town. Very cool.

We love staying at the Rosemont Cottages. So cozy and well kept--and the backyard has such beautiful bushes in bloom.

Susan, the innkeeper, has done it again! My first time to stay in one of the beautiful cottages in the heart of downtown Little Rock. We planned a little group of friends get together, it was warm, welcoming, comfortable. We cooked, we visited, we laughed together. A great getaway place for couples or friends. Highly recommended! Five stars for sure!

Excellent place to stay, and a terrific value!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I needed to be in Little Rock for a week on a business trip, and we wanted to bring our two Basenjis who don't board very well for that length of time. We had never been to Little Rock before, and found this the IDEAL place to stay for charm, convenience to everything, and a great taste of the Quapaw historic district - very close to the governor's mansion - whether you bring your pet(s) or not. I initially booked the Winslow cottage thinking it had a small kitchen, but then called the owner, Susan, to verify that, and upon learning that I wanted to cook some while there, she offered to move us up to the Hayward cottage, which does have a full kitchenette with a range, at no extra charge! I took her up on the offer, and I’m thrilled that I did. We LOVED our apartment, which is really what it is - a one bedroom pied-à-terre with a lovely private fenced-in garden in back that was perfect for the dogs, and a cozy but very generous amount of living space for 2 adults. It would be great for even a small family of 3 or 4. So much better than a hotel!!! If we need to stay in Little Rock again, I will be booking the Hayward cottage at the Rosemont. And it’s an unbelievable value for all that you get!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Andrew ... as perfect as Hayward Cottage was for the two of you, you were equally perfect guests. You are the kind who keep me happy being an innkeeper and guest cottage owner. Continue having a wonderful life!
