We had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful home on October 27-28, 2014. Couldn't be happier with our stay and hosts, a wonderful place, highly recommended! Very close to all of the Shawnee Forest attractions and Cave In Rock.

My husband and I returned to River Rose Inn Bed & Breakfast for the second time, visiting from October 10 - October 13, 2014. We stayed in the Eagle Room on the second floor. The beds are comfortable and the Inn is very clean overall. The Inn has five rooms, each with its own theme. There is a library, two... More

We spent four relaxing days with hosts Sue and Bruce at the River Rose Inn. The breakfasts were delicious and original and the hospitality could not have been more satisfying. The Inn overlooks the scenic Ohio River and is near a restaurant that serves the best catfish dinners to be had. We have spent time at the Inn in years... More

This was a beautiful place to stay. We were immediately welcomed by a darling lady, Sue- the owner- as she was enjoying the afternoon on the beautiful, inviting front porch. She made us feel right at home. We felt like we took a step back in time- the inn is fully stocked with hand crafted antique furniture and Victorian- esque... More

Owners Bruce and Sue were most accommodating and helpful. Even after we told them we were a same-sex couple who came to Elizabethtown to be married the next day, we were warmly welcomed. All the rooms had period furniture of the 1920s which lent to the authenticity of the inn. There are five rooms, one downstairs and four upstairs. Each... More

Firstly this was a real poor place to stay. We certainly would not recommend it. The room was dirty, the hosts were not the most hospitable. Our bathroom flooded twice in two days, the second time we had to clean it ourselves!! We were disgusted at the standard of this establishment. We booked due to excellent reviewson tripadvisor. Are these... More

Spent the last day part our 18th wedding Anniversary trip here. Lovely view of the Ohio River from our room & the yard. Didn't get a chance to use the hot tub or pool, but is very well kept. Sue made a great breakfast. Very friendly & accommodating. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

We had the Rose Room at this lovely B & B. This room has a door into the garden where you can sit in the shade or in the sun and watch ships passing slowly on the mighty Ohio River. Great! There is also a swimming pool and a hot tub in the large garden. The room was very nice,... More

We usually don't stay in B&B's, lodging is very limited in the Cave-in-Rock, IL area so chose the River Rose because of the location on the Ohio River and stayed 7-16-2012. Sue and Rosie (cute little dog) greeted us, made us feel like we were family and even let us put our Harley in the garage overnight. It's a wonderful... More
