Spent the night at Richwood on the River for a getaway visit to Madison, Indiana. Richwood is extremely well maintained, comfortably relaxing, clean and a joy to visit. We stayed in the McKinley room, which is large with wonderful views of the grounds, Ohio River and sunsets. For being a historic older plantation home the interior was bright with many...

We spent a single night at Richwood when we attended the Chautauqua. We were impressed by the facility as soon as we drove past the front entrance. The plantation and its location on the banks of the Ohio River are extremely picturesque. We loved our comfortable suite on the second floor, especially the king poster bed and the expansive views....

We gathered here for a girls weekend and the property is stunning! Each room was different and charming, a pool outback, surrounded by gorgeous fields along with a hot tub and fire pit. Everything was very well kept and clean, I plan of returning soon!

Richwood is a hidden treasure on the Ohio River. An easy drive from Cincinnati, as well as Louisville and Lexington, transports you to a luxurious plantation house of days gone by. With proximity to Madison, Indiana for shopping, antiquing and dining, you have a bit of everything. Belterra Resort and Casino is a short distance. The proprietor, Colleen, is superb....

I've lived forty miles from The Richwood for over 25 years and go to Madison several times a year but I never had any idea it existed let alone what a hidden gem it truly is. I just happened to google search wedding venues for Louisville KY and it came up third or fourth tier and I hit on it...

Everything about it was top notch. We loved the Summer Cottage, the pool, the grounds and the breakfast. The common areas in the main house were beautiful. The staff was extremely helpful with restaurant recommendations and anything else we needed without being intrusive. Our cottage was really nice with a hot tub and a fireplace. It's very convenient, about two...

Richwood on the River is an incredibly peaceful, enjoyable, and relaxing experience. Colleen and her staff are accommodating, welcoming, and do a remarkable job helping you feel at home - away from home. Breakfast was exceptional, and the views are breathtaking from any angle. We were married here and celebrated our 5 year anniversary during this stay.

It's actually a little hard to describe perfection, but Richwood on the River is it. First, the manor hour is spacious, well-constructed and nicely renovated. It's large and substantial enough that there is lots of quiet and privacy for every guest. All mechanicals are top-notch. The decorating, linens and finishes are superior. The people are service-oriented and delightful. The food...
