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

Though only half of the house built in 1854, the newer part blends perfectly because of the charming colonial decor throughout. We were amazed by the number of common rooms: a living room with huge stone fireplace downstairs plus 3 upstairs: a sunny reading room with comfy couches, a TV room and a guest kitchen area with mini-refrigerator, microwave, 24...

Authentic bit of colonial charm in Deep River, CT. Huge brick fireplace, comfy guest lounge with sherry in the evening, help-yourself coffee and tea service in the TV lounge, books, puzzles, lots of amenities. Comfy, big beds with beautiful linens. Clean and bright restroom with the most heavenly scented soaps. Fluffy towels, gracious hostess, delicious breakfast. It was everything we... More

We have stayed at Riverwind many times and wouldn't even consider any place else in the area. The rooms in this historic house are beautifully decorated, comfortable and immaculate. Elaine and Leo are wonderful hosts and do everything possible to make your stay pleasant. They are knowledgable of the area and always have good tips on local attractions, dining and... More

Deep River is a welcome relief from the somewhat hectic Connecticut shore and Riverwinds Inn is the perfect base to explore the area. The house is attractive and comfortable and the innkeepers are most hospitable. You arrive as customers and leave as friends. There is a definite separation between guest and host areas so you don't ever feel that you... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Riverwind Inn. Elaine and Leo were so attentive, wonderful conversationalists, and have created a picture perfect haven away from the realities of hectic city life. Breakfast was delicious, and the room immaculate, and the bed was comfy! We had a wonderful weekend wedding we were attending at nearby Old Lyme, and loved "coming... More

We loved our stay at the Riverwind Inn. Everything was perfectly clean, beautifully decorated. The innkeepers attention to detail is so sweet - the whole place even smells lovely. Breakfast was delicious, the bed was comfortable. We truly enjoyed staying here.
