— A LUXURY BED AND BREAKFAST —
The Amber House offers ideal accommodations for your next visit to Rocheport. While relaxing at the bed and breakfast is a wonderful way to enjoy your stay, there are lots of things to see if you choose to venture out. Our historic village offers excellent restaurants, fine shops, and art galleries all within walking distance from our front door. There are also many restored historic homes and buildings dating from the 1840’s that can be visited on a walking tour and the Rocheport Museum is open on the weekends. Our town hosts a variety of events throughout the year including bicycle races, music festivals, a wine stroll, a wassail walk, a chocolate affair, and a caroling contest.
