I do not usually write a second review of a bed and breakfast, but I feel that it is warranted in this case. I visit family in Kankakee periodically and stay at Nita's very special B&B. This last visit was wonderful. Nita makes you feel as if you are part of her family. Her home is always very clean and... More

The Riverview Guest House is in a great location, just around the corner from the Bradley House, built by Frank Lloyd Wright (open for visitors and worth seeing). The house is beautifully furnished. Our room was very nice and clean. Breakfast was exceptionally good! I'd definitely recommend staying there!

We arrived the night before the Strawberry Festival to find our hostess, Nita, and her friends busily dipping strawberries into chocolate sauce for the festivities. Upon her recommendation we did stop by the festival, looked at the crafts and enjoyed the music. The other activity Nita suggested was looking at barn quilts. If you don't know what a barn quilt...

Nita really has a very lovely guest house. We stayed in the same room as last year on the first floor. Bed too soft but a beautiful room; the place is very, very clean. Nice washroom right outside the room door. Good amount of privacy too. TV room right next door. The breakfast was perfect. Nice selection of items. The... More

I just spent a week at the Riverview Bed and breakfast. It truly was one of the best b&b experiences that I have had. It was as if I was in my own home. Nita opened up the entiire house to include the use of her washer and dryer. There was a small room upstairs that contained a small refrigerator... More

We spent the night here while in business in the area. The B&B itself is very pretty with absolutely beautiful gardens. The inside of the house is gorgeous with lots of antiques. Our room was very comfortable with a great bed, private bath and access to both a sleep porch and deck area. The hostess is a very nice and... More

The house itself is beautiful and very clean. Breakfast without fruit was a surprise because I have never been to a B & B without some kind of fruit. There was not enough selection. The bed on the 1st floor was way too soft but the room was very nice. The heated bed was great for a cool evening. Nice... More

We stayed at this B&B for two nights and occupied 3 of the 5 rooms with our group and really loved the experience. The owners were very friendly with recommendations for what to do around the area and also provided us with food for snacks and drinks in the afternoons/evenings as well as a very filling breakfast each morning! There... More

This is a nice little B&B. I hadn't stayed at one before, so I didn't know what to expect. The house was very nice and clean and the breakfast was yummy! A good place to stay and it is easy to find.
