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

Elaine and Leo obviously enjoy welcoming and hosting their guests and even their guest's aquantances. This B&B captures their labor-of-love with well-appointed comfortable but uncluttered New England ambience throughout their quiet B&B and its grounds. Their local knowledge and information about nearby attractions and restaurants adds to the quality of stay by all who seek advice. Access to early morning... More

Innkeepers Elaine and Leo Klevens welcomed us with open arms and were fabulous hosts. The inn offers incredible comfort and the colonial style and history that truly made our stay unique. We stayed in the Hearts and Flowers room and could not have been happier. The guest lounge downstairs boasts a huge wood fireplace that lit up the room making... More

On the main road, this inn is very convenient for the main town street and easy to find although we did not notice any traffic noise or inconvenience. Elaine and Leo are lovely hosts and their Inn is very welcoming and comfortable. There are a couple of guest lounges with tea and coffee making facilities available. Breakfast was all freshly...

We stayed at the Riverwind Inn a few weekends ago. We had a wonderful stay. The house is beautifully decorated and the room was perfect. Leo and Elaine were very friendly and even changed the breakfast for me due to some dietary restrictions that I have. Would definitely return if in the area again!

B&B's can seem the same, especially upon arrival. But our welcome by Leo and Elaine was so warm and friendly that we knew this was a great place to stay. We had just come a previous B&B experience with poor service and Leo and Elaine showed how B&B's should be managed. They welcomed us and got us settled in. They... More

Selected this Inn based on the majority of Trip Advisor reviews and they were right on....great setting, nice accomodations and the owners could not have been more hospitable; the breakfast was nicely prepared and presented.......worth a visit if exploring this part of Connecticut....

With my son in school nearby, we've been checking out various B&B's when we travel to this area. Riverwind is in a great location for us--near the ferry, not too far from the restaurants of Old Saybrook, and close--but not too close--to town. Elaine & Leo were as nice as could be, and I would describe Riverwind as cozy, quiet,... More

The Riverwind Inn and its innkeepers, Leo and Elaine Klevens, have become our oasis from the frenzy of demanding professions and commitments to a large and geographically scattered family. I knew we had something special when Leo and Elaine arranged, while THEY were on vacation, to accommodate our request for a one night stay on a holiday weekend! The Riverwind's... More
