This charming mansion has been an inn for over 200 years, so it is full of antiquities, stories of the Underground Railway, and a resident ghost, Miss Suzanne in Room 11. The owner, Elaine, is a delightful host who will regale you with local lore and love your dog. The rooms are small and of course old, furnished with antiques... More

We gambled on this B&B early in our bike ride cross country and were pleasantly surprised. Nice old inn, decent size rooms, great service (allowed us to use a separate room for our bikes), and had great food. The Potato leek soup was fantastic.

Clearly the July 2nd post was written by the Inn keeper herself. If your going to write one yourself, try not to be so fake and make it sound like an advertisement. The beds were old and uncomfortable, and the entire upstairs smells like a sewer. The food is less than par so after our 1st meal we ate out... More

The historical significance of the property, the personal attention of the Innkeeper and her excellent staff, the serene atmosphere, and the outstanding food resulted in a rehearsal dinner our families had in a private setting that was perfect in every way. Located on historic US Route 20, the Oregon Trail, the former last-stop-before-freedom on the Underground Railway property is a... More

Rider's Inn has become my home away from home while I am in Cleveland. I love the historic laid back setting, the friendly staff, and accommodations. During our most recent stay, the power went out in the city, and the staff at Rider's Inn made the best of it. People coming here expecting a 5 star Hilton resort should consider... More

My stay at Riders was extremely nice. The attmosphere was very very nice. The room, although a little warm, was very home like I absolutely loved the old trunk at the end of the bed. The greeter Sukki was extremely friendly. My food was absolutely great along with the band that played. They were very entertaining. The decorations through out... More

Extremely over priced plain salad. Mediocre desserts. Poor service. That was the best part. They dragged in 30 plus people during the dinner hour and did a wedding rehearsal while we ate. The bride and groom stood right next to our table. Then all kinds of wedding planning took place, aloud, standing in the dinning room while we ate. The... More

Went to Riders expecting a very nice Thanksgiving dinner with a family of 12, including 4 children. I'm not sure where to begin. When we went to the hostess desk, our reservation couldn't be found ; it took several minutes. The lady at the desk just kept saying the owner could find it easier and she finally found the owner...

This review is strictly regarding their annual Thanksgiving Lunch/Dinner we recently experienced in 2013. We had a party of seven with reservations that were made several weeks in advance, however on the day of our arrival we were pushed into a very small area with a wobbly table that shook every time some one would move. We reported this to... More

A couple of friends and I were in town to attend a fundraiser for the Lake County Historical Society. What better place to stay than in a historic inn? The atmosphere is wonderful. They did a great job of keeping the place well maintained but still very historic feeling. I loved the claw foot bath tubs and the beautiful tiles... More
