The Blushing Rose Bed and Breakfast was previously the Keeler Homestead, built in 1843, an Italianate structure mingled with Greek revival. The main house has a simple hipped roof with a cupola.

Grape Grower J. W. Keeler purchased the house that is now the Blushing Rose Inn from its original owner, J.M. Kellog in 1918. The home remained in the Keeler family for 3 generations. The house underwent many changes through the years.  The original property was purchased with a barn, which was replaced with a garage between 1946 and 1952. An outhouse was also removed during that time and indoor plumbing installed.
The Keeler home was purchased as a residence for the Flavey family in 1977, then bought by Bucky and Ellen Laufersweiler in 1989 with the intention of transforming it to an inn.

Soon after the purchase, Bucky, a master carpenter, added to both the lower and upper living space creating a four-bedroom structure which included the innkeepers suite. He also transformed the floors with beautiful hardwood designs and updated the kitchen.

The bed and breakfast originally opened as the "Laufersweiler Inn'" which was later changed to "Blushing Rose" as many found it difficult to pronounce Laufersweiler.
In 2001 the inn was purchased by Patty and Dick Leonberger, who continued the Blushing Rose tradition as an excellent bed and breakfast. On March 3, 2013, Marianne and Sam Chalk took over and continued to grow the inn. 

In March of 2016, Tami and Scott Reinhart fulfilled a lifelong dream of owning a bed and breakfast. They continue many of the same traditions as their predecessors. Tami and Scott welcome guests from around the world to enjoy the comfort and charm of the Blushing Rose Inn Bed & Breakfast.
