The River Rose Inn B&B in Elizabethtown is definitely off the beaten track but worth finding. Bruce and Sue are great innkeepers and have a wealth of knowledge about the area. They were able to provide us with places to eat and local areas to explore. You can literally sit on the porch swing and watch the barges go down... More

My husband and I chose to spend our anniversary at the River Rose Inn for the view of the water and because of the nearby exploring opportunities in the Illinois Ozarks. It was our first bed and breakfast experience, and Sue and Bruce exceeded our expectations. They are gracious hosts of a beautiful historic home. Even though we went exploring... More

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.
