This Rivertown Inn was a lovely home and we Sheila provided a warm welcome. Our room was beautiful and very comfortable. One thing I was looking forward to was a good night's sleep and unfortunately we had the opposite---not much sleep at all. All night long, the old pipes were banging and clanging like someone was hitting it with a...

I have stayed here for years and love every moment. We are about to move from Minnesota to Texas and staying here one more time was one of the items we want to do before we move. The food is outstanding, the rooms are amazing, and the service is the best in the business. While it might be more expensive...

We stayed for two nights in the suite named for Alfred, Lord Tennyson. Despite being a third floor dormer, this two-room suite was spacious and comfortable. The bed was firm but not hard and the linens soft and warm, though the pillows were unremarkable. We'd recommend that guests bring their own pillows, if possible. The jetted hot tub was huge,...

This is a unique place to stay! We had the Agatha Christie Suite, and it really transports you back in time. It felt like we were main characters on "The Orient Express"! The suite is luxurious, with attention paid to so many lovely details. A steam bath, a spacious bathroom from the 30's with beautiful decor and a large whirlpool...

My NEW fiancé and I stayed here the night of our engagement and couldn't have had a better experience. The staff was super helpful and anticipated all our needs. They offered up a champagne chiller, flutes, wine glasses and a flower vase. We stayed in the Lord Byron suite and it was perfect. Had a great whirlpool tub, warm fire,...

This was the third time we stayed at the Rivertown Inn and they continued to impress. We love the social hour and the three course breakfast has never failed to disappoint.

We just spent two nights and had a wonderfully relaxing time. We took a "Cocktail Party" cooking class that was very good--can't wait to use what we learned for holiday entertaining. The breakfasts were delicious and the chefs did an amazing job of catering to all of our dietary needs. Definitely a two thumbs up!

I surprised my husband for his 40th Birthday with a romantic getaway. Rivertown Inn was the perfect place to escape to. We stayed in the carriage house in the Oscar Wilde room. They really thought of everything. The room has two fireplaces, a huge jet tub, and a sauna to name a few amenities. We were unable to get the...

Great attention to every detail making the experience wonderful. The breakfast was a wonderful experience with the chef which sets this B & B apart from the rest. Having a fireplace in the room was a special treat too.

The greeting appetizers and wine were wonderful. The room was very beautiful. We were disappointed that the "private" bath meant there was a curtain segregating the toilet, not a room with a door. The hot water was plentiful and filled the large tub in the room with ease. We slept long and hard forgetting about stress and everyday chores. We...
