About Us

Leigh Leppan

Our founder

I started Rose and Ale in 2003 with just one unit, Cider Place. I subsequently added Rose Cottage and Blue Room over the years. The Rose and Ale name originated from my love for roses and my husband’s love for brewing beer.

Cindy Mauer joined me in October 2013. We extended the business to where we are now, with 9 uniquely decorated units.

I enjoy meeting different people from all over the world. I love to travel and travel as often as I can. Hence, everything I find I need when I travel, I put in my units, to make them as comfortable as possible for every guest. All my rooms are individually decorated using items from my travels and local art to make them all a part of me and to make my guests feel welcome.
