Everything was perfect.. From the greeting to the leaving.. We were met at the door and was given a tour and explanation of everything.. The view was great. The room was emaculant with a scent of relaxation.. We didn't want to leave our room once we unpacked.. We even canceled our dinner reservations because we didn't want to leave.. This... More

My wife and I were hoping for a rejuvenating long-weekend away from the responsibilities of work, house and kids and we weren't disappointed. We used to live in Machesney Park, so we are pretty familiar with the Rockford area. However, we never even knew that the River House Bed and Breakfast Getaway even existed until we came across it online... More

We stayed in the Timber Suite and enjoyed a snowy two day romantic getaway. The hot tub and the fireplace was a great place to relax. The décor was Native American/Southwestern and everything was pristine and spotless with a wall of windows to enjoy nature. The main room was spacious and overlooked the river and hills of Rockford.

This was our first time staying in a bed-and-breakfast, so we went in clueless as to what to expect. We stayed in the Timber Suite at the Riverhouse, and it was just my husband and me. Having never stayed outside of a private cabin or hotel, the personal nature of a bed and breakfast was unfamiliar to us. When we... More

I stayed in their corporate temporary living apartment. I had been staying at an extended stay hotel while waiting to move to the Rockford area. The apartment was a welcome improvement, very clean, spacious and most of all, quiet. During the warm months, I was able to enjoy the deck overlooking the river. Would definately recommend this as a less-expensive,... More

We had a wonderful stay in The Timber Room at the River House B & B. The decor brought me back to a dude ranch in Estes Park, CO a favorite family vacation spot. Their collection of native American/Western furnishings and artifacts were very welcoming. The views of the Rock River were lovely. Patty served a fabulous breakfast and recommended... More
