Having seen the good reviews we were looking forward to staying here but the experience turned out to be disappointing. We arrived on a hot day and had to pay the minute we walked in the door and were not offered even a glass of water. Our room was beautifully decorated but very small and even smaller with our suitcases... More

We are very concerned that we got our first disappointing review from our guest from Australia. In our defense, all our rooms have full descriptions and prices on our website. This particular guest picked this room himself, I think because it was one of our lower priced rooms. The room he chose was in the 1854 section of the house... More

This part of the Connecticut River Valley is gorgeous and hotels/inns price up accordingly. We chose the Riverwind because it offers rooms in the $125-$150 range; a good price for the area. While not smack dab in the middle of historic Essex or next to a landmark, the Riverwind is within 5-6 miles of such destinations and its laid-back atmosphere... More

We stayed overnight at this delightful Inn during a motoring holiday of Connecticut and surrounding states in June this year. Our room was furnished in a most charming and tasteful way and the beds were very comfortable. The guest lounge room was suitably furnished with relaxing lounges, most welcome after a day's driving. The innkeepers, Elaine and Leo, were most... More

This is an absolutely charming, spotlessly clean "home". There are 8 unique rooms with their own themes. We stayed in "Hearts & Flowers". Elaine and Leo make you feel like you are guests in their home (which in a sense you are) and you are welcome to wander around, and make yourself at home in the many common areas and... More

We stayed at The Riverwind Inn earlier this month. Elaine and Leo greeted us at the door with a smile. They were quick to commence with the practical minutia, which was somewhat stilted and awkward. They showed us to our room and gave us space, which we appreciated. Leo was helpful in recommending directions and local restaurants. We were confused... More

The Riverwind Inn is magic! What a lovely place! My daughter and I were only able spend one night there but will definitely return. .Due to this winters weather concerns, our stay had to be re-arranged many times but Elaine and Leo couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. We highly recommend The Riverwind! If it is amazing now, in... More

I came to the area for the weekend with a dear friend to spend a the weekend relaxing for a fall getaway. I never have stayed at the Riverwind before and wasn't sure because I hadn't heard much about it. What a remarkable weekend.

The Riverwind Inn is superb. From the moment we arrived we were made very welcome by Elaine and Leo who as Innkeepers go well beyond the call to make your stay as comfortable and memorable as possible. The breakfast was delicious! We will definitely recommend to friends visiting New England.

We fell in love the moment we arrived at this gorgeous B + B! As we pulled in, Elaine was picking flowers and waving hello. The grounds are impeccable and the rooms were sparkling.
