We did a Girl's Weekend for 6 moms. We found the Inn to be a beautiful place with outdoor sitting areas and open grounds down by the river. The girl's weekend package included a Margarita night in the little building by the river. We hung on the porch, drank Margaritas and enjoyed fruit and crackers and enjoyed our beautiful views...

We enjoyed our stay and would recommended the inn to friends. Clean and comfortable room, great breakfast, and excellent location for walking to the river, restaurants and to the town square. The group meeting building has the best deck and river view, so recommend visiting when there is no group there.

My 4 sisters and I celebrated a birthday at the Inn. The entire experience was awesome. The setting by the Paluxy River is serene. The rooms & public areas are beautiful. The staff is gracious and helpful. I look forward to returning to the Inn, and I've already recommended it to many friends.

Stayed in Room 1 with a wonderful sitting room and private entry to the backyard garden. Joy, the Inn Keeper was so nice and accommodating. We had the 4-course dinner, that was superb. And breakfast both days was great. What a relaxing atmosphere, with lovely grounds. We will definitely return!

We have stayed at the In on the River three times and have always found the inn to be spotless. The rooms are spotless though some of them are quite small. The breakfasts are marvelous and the optional three course dinner on the weekends is as good as it gets. Not a place for children though. More the anniversary or... More

The Inn has several beautifully decorated rooms with comfortable furnishings. The entire staff was very friendly and helpful. The garden and grounds offer several places to relax outside and enjoy quiet surroundings. The dinner and service were excellent. We will be returning!

Six of us just returned from an overnight stay at Inn on the River to celebrate a milestone birthday of one of our group. We had a wonderful stay!

Working with Amy on planning our department retreat was a delight. She was very helpful and answered any and all questions that I had and her response was always fast! When we arrived one member of our group was on a special diet and when I informed them they were willingly to make it happen. They went to the store... More

We stayed one night and found the Inn on the River staff to be very friendly. The room was very quiet and the bed was confortable. We really enjoyed how peaceful everything was and the grounds are all well kept. A beautiful place to get away and rest.
