Our group of 19 golfers stayed at the Riverside Inn for our 24th annual golf trip. Everyone loved the quiet location and the very historic, beautiful Inn. It is very user friendly. The rooms were all well appointed with lots of antiques. Rooms were very comfortable. We were on a meal package which included breakfast and dinner each day. The... More

I spent several weekends at the Riverside as a child, so returning as a 60 year old was like riding in a time machine. Although the golf course is gone as well as the boardwalk to the spring, the hotel is exactly as I remembered it. The show, Peeved was hilarious and we had the best time ever! The meal... More

My sister and I stayed at Riverside for a few days, for a family reunion. She made these reservations, because she knows how I love old historic hotels. Upon arrival, we walked through the front door and looked around the lobby area, which was done up very nice and welcoming. We were given our room keys and we went and... More

I live in Baltimore. Cambridge Springs Pa was a 7 hour trip up. A trip I almost didn't take when I learned of the distance. But I was convinced to go by a very effective member of their staff. And I do not regret one minute of it. The original building went up in 1885 in this small town. Today... More

I highly recommend a visit to this place, either for lunch or dinner or as a place to stay overnight. We went there for lunch. The quality and quantity of food were very good. The waitress was friendly, professional and efficient. The hotel has a very interesting history. The eating area is spacious. You should check it out on the... More

This beautiful mid-19th century former spa resort is perfect for an unusual, relaxing, pleasant get-away. The Inn is packed with antiques in every room and hallway, all of the rooms are Victorian, and all are different. The room amenities are minimal, but that is part of the charm! You feel a little like you are living in the past, but... More

This is always a highlight of any trip to the Cambridge Springs area for me. It's a gracious old hotel that's been in continuous operation since the 1880s. For awhile it had slipped somewhat with new owners but with the old owners taking over again, it's once more a jewel of a place. You step back in time to the... More

...back in the day, the little village of Cambridge Pa. was the meca for visitors seeking the special cure for what ailed you from their underground springs!
