This review is long overdue. My husband and I stayed at the River's Inn B&B as one of our two-night stops on our honeymoon. The house is beautiful and wonderfully kept. As a house with a long and intriguing history, the innkeepers, April and Tim, have done a wonderful job honoring its past using period-looking furniture and accents to keep... More

We stayed at Rivers Inn because we were going to ride on the Cumbres and Toltec scenic railway. As we made our plans, this inn seemed to us to be the nicest in town, and I believe it was. April and Tim, the innkeepers, are friendly and will do whatever it takes to make your stay pleasant. We stayed for... More

We had a last minute change of plan, and April and Tim were very understanding and helpful. In conversation with Greg, he asked about the possibility of local Native American activities. April pulled together the most astonishing day for us. The people and the experience was beyond amazing. April and Tim topped the day that evening by sharing their musical... More

Interesting historic house with comfortable rooms, great food and friendly helpful hosts - what more could you ask for ? We were greeted by April with an upgrade to a larger room than the one we'd booked, + smilingly shown free tea and biscuits which were very welcome after our drive over to Antonito from Durango. We very much enjoyed... More

The River's Inn Bed and Breakfast was the perfect place for our one night stay. My husband and I rode on the Cumbres Toltec Scenic Railroad from Chama, NM, to Antonito; the River's Inn was a short walk from the train station. River's Inn was a great place to stay, very comfortable, well appointed rooms, excellent service, and a wonderful... More

This was actually my second time recently visiting the River's Inn B&B. The first time (October 2013), I stayed in the Sargent’s bedroom, and more recently I stayed in the Roosevelt Suite (April 2014). Both were wonderfully comfortable with period style furniture, decorations, etc. The house, built in the early 1900s, created as a model of a house in upstate... More

My wife and I spent one Saturday night in the Jordan Suite last week. The mansion has been beautifully refurbished and restored from what I remember growing up. We had company in the form of paranormal investigators from Westcliffe, Colorado. The four of them including the hosts were very delightful people and we enjoyed our time conversing with them. The...

Very downhome feel to the stay here. Lovely night's rest and great down home country breakfast! Very nice hosts! Antonito is in close enough proximity to beautiful and scenic Colorado as well as New Mexico locations! Definitely recommend this charming B&B.

A group of friends and myself recently visited the River's Inn cottage and were in awe of the place from the moment we entered to the moment we drove away. This is a location that dates back to the early 1900s, created as a replica of a house in upstate New York...believe me when I say there is nothing like... More
