We had a nice meal at the restaurant, but didn't stay at the hotel. The dining room is charming, as is the lobby and library. Our server, Donna, added to our enjoyment of the evening. She was friendly and efficient and made us feel very welcome. I had a fillet, which was slightly over cooked. Donna was quick to offer... More

I want to complement the Staff at the Riverside Inn, (Jeremy Ball, Mike Petrillo & Donna & staff) for their amazing help and execution of a beautiful Garden Wedding & Reception July 20, 2014. As the wedding planner for a family friends wedding, I couldn't have asked for a more pleasant experience. The day started with some anxiousness due to... More

We stayed at the historic Victorian Inn for a relaxing overnight following their Dinner Theatre package.The inn has tastefully decorated rooms, all different, on three floors (no elevator). There are no phones or TVs in the rooms to create a step back in time.. The living room, dining rooms, grand veranda with lots of chairs, garden areas, and outdoor pool... More

This was our second visit to this Historic Hotel. The first time we visited was by pure accident. We enjoyed our stay so much, that we returned this year. Although they lost the liquor license, and the lounge was closed, the stay was still wonderful. We even got to look in all of the rooms in the morning as they... More

We stayed here for the weekend when my cousin got married on the property. We have never stayed in a place quite like this. The setting and decor take you back and make you wonder what it was like to live in the 1800's and the early 1900's. Our room was one of the smaller rooms on the first floor... More

Wonderful hotel. Ambiance is great. Rooms were spacious. On the plus side, there are "NO " TV's or telephones in the rooms. There is a TV in the lobby, and a phone at the desk. The lobby has board games for all. The breakfast buffet was a plus. A very nice porch on 2 sides on the hotel. The gardens... More

My husband and I had our wedding here in May 2014. The Riverside Inn is a much different atmosphere than anywhere you may have stayed in the past as they don't have TV's or phones in the guest rooms. The old style Inn is so charming and we loved the atmosphere. The rooms are all old fashion which is so... More

I absolutely love this place! Every room is decorated differently. The Grand Hotel on Macinac Island has nothing over this charming inn in rural northwest PA. The price is reasonable and the staff pleasant and helpful. In keeping with the theme of the simplicity of earlier times there is no tv or phone in the rooms. If you are in... More

The Riverside Inn has so much character. You can unplug and enjoy your stay. There are no phones or TVs in the room. There are board games to share in the lobby, as well as, a TV. The theater productions are wonderful and the grounds are quite beautiful. We have enjoyed many family gatherings.
