We just wrapped up a two-day stay at the Riverwind Inn. It was perfect. The Inn is welcoming and the inn keepers Leo & Elaine are like long time friends. Elaine greeted us warmly when we arrived, and showed us right to our room. The inn is in a great location, so close to many quintessential Connecticut towns, like Essex,... More

This quaint little Inn in a town called Deep River, CT is full of surprises. From the delicious breakfast and great conversation from the proprietor Leo and Elaine. This place is a great place for R & R. The area offers great access to near by towns like Essex, Chester, and Old Saybrook. There is kayaking nearby to taking the... More

We stayed at the River Wind Inn for only one night as we had a wedding in deep river and had to be on our way the next morning. The Inn and Inn keepers were warm and welcoming. Our room, Champagne and Roses, was as lovely as the online picture. It is hard to describe how hospitable and inviting the... More

We had an absolutely lovely weekend at the Riverwind Inn. My 13 year old son and I were here to attend a weekend event in nearby Chester. Along with us were another mom and her 13 year old daughter. The Riverwind was a quick 5 minute drive, so was perfectly located. The rooms were charming, clean, and delightful. The kids... More

We were in CT to visit my husband's daughter and I found Riverwind Inn on TA. What a charming place with owners who could not have been nicer. Leo and Elaine went out of their way to be accommodating. Elaine even made me a gluten free breakfast for the three days were were there--and it was delicious! Can't wait to... More

First time at this B&B. Found it to be very charming and convenient to the town and area attractions. The innkeepers were very friendly and helpful with everything. Breakfast was great. Great value. My wife and I enjoyed our recent stay and would return.

I stayed at the Riverwind during a bike trip. The hosts were very bike friendly and stored our bikes. I sent my luggage with Fedex and they kept it for me. The room had a beautiful quilt. The breakfast room was lovely and I was greeted with lovely smells as I walked in.

We stayed here for my sister's wedding at The Lace Factory, which is about a mile away in Deep River. The inn was clean, quiet, and comfortable. It's also within walking distance of the shops downtown. The breakfast was just ok, but that was my only complaint.

I had to make a quick business trip to Southern CT and needed a place to stay. After searching the net I found the River Wind Inn in Deep River. Elaine & Leo have owned this B & B for 10 years and do a marvelous job of welcoming guests to their beautiful home and the quaint town of Deep... More

We stayed here for one night on our way to Amherst College to drop the DD at camp. The inn is charming; it is not luxury but it is homey, clean, and quiet. We stayed in the Zelda as we were three. The innkeepers were gracious and very forthcoming with wonderful recommendations for restaurants. We had a great meal at... More
