Montrose, Pennsylvania, located in the Endless Mountains, is the county seat of Susquehanna County. My husband and I have visited Montrose for more than twenty years as we attend the writers conference at Montrose Bible Conference.


I love the persona of Montrose: a small town atmosphere where the residents will greet you as you pass by their homes.

There are so many charming and beautiful houses in Montrose, in different states of repair. Some of them were built as summer ”cottages” for wealthy families from Philadelphia in the nineteenth century. Real estate is expensive, and large houses difficult to maintain. I like to imagine how these houses looked years ago. Some of them have been renovated

  I think I’d enjoy a stay at the Rosemont Inn, a B&B.

We were pleased to see the progress made on this lovely mansion. I imagined it as a B&B. It might be fun to live there, but not to clean it regularly. It’s for sale, in case you’re interested.

This yellow house won a national award for it’s renovations. Isn’t is beautiful? Believe me, it didn’t look like this in 1997.

If you take a walk in Montrose, be sure to wear walking shoes and take a walking stick. You will be walking up hill and down.
