We had such a great stay! Loved our room and everything about our stay. The employees and the judge make you feel like you are part of their family. We have traveled all over and have stayed in many establishments. But the inns and bed and breakfasts are our favorites. We are also huge history buffs, especially the love of... More

This past weekend, I stayed here for the 5th time. Every visit has been great, and this visit was no different. My husband and I love the laid back environment and feeling of this historic tavern and Inn. It was the perfect low stress retreat for us while in Cleveland. We will be back in the future, and as long... More

We saw the Rider's Inn online and weren't to sure so we stopped in to look at rooms before we booked it. Stayed in the Bridal Suite and were very happy with it being comfortable and clean. We chose to pay the additional amount and enjoy the sunday brunch instead of just breakfast which is included. The brunch was amazing... More

Rider's Inn was the best experience ever! Felt just like home! Food was awesome, but better yet, the owner Elaine was the best, as well as the rest of the staff. All the "little" things that amounted to so much, from the quaint rooms, pub, and restaurant that we will definitely be back!!!!! BEST PLACE EVER! The Chestnuts

Sunday brunch was maybe the best buffet style food that I've ever had. Historical charm is a nice bonus. Leave the kids at home as it would be overpriced for them. Younger staff was very attentive. Will be going again.

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
