Riverbend is the best Lodge in town. The area is beautiful and immensely scenic. Go view the damn. Its spectacular in Nature and in History. Its views are like no other. Looking down into the damn is a man made beach which will take your breath away. Take a trip to the Winchester Therapeutic Stables and see what true caring... More

Neil and Melissa are great! Whatever we needed they were only to happy to help out. Rooms are clean and large and the breakfast was fantastic. Conveniently located only a half an hour from Stratton Mountain. Not the Hilton but for the price can't be beat.

The new owners did a great job renovating. 10 of us spent two nights here at this perfect motel.(4 rooms) The rooms are very clean and spacious. Neal was such a doll making sure everyone was happy with breakfast, directions, and recommendations. The hotel is a hop skip and a ski jump from Stratton mountain, Grafton cheese, Saxton distillery and... More

The rooms were clean and comfortable. They created an awesome homemade breakfast that had a good variety. We had several family members staying at the hotel and when other family members came by for a visit, the managers were extremely hospitable to all. The management went out of there way to make us feel welcomed and would highly recommend this... More

I have been staying at RBL every summer since 1992 and over the years I have noticed a great improvement in appearance since the new owner acquired it. The rooms have always been clean, but since Mr & Mrs Allen took over as the new managers, they have improved the rooms even more. For the location, cleanliness and the rates... More

We came to Vermont to visit family and camp in Newfane. However, after two weeks of camping, when the weather threatened to dump about 2" of rain on us, we opted to move to the River Bend Lodge for the last few nights of our stay. A very wise decision! And a very pleasant experience. Neal and Melissa made our... More

We landed at the River Bend Lodge under unfortunate circumstances--a car wreck on icy roads in nearby Townshend, VT--but the great accommodations and unbelievable kindness of Neil and Melissa made a bad situation much better. The room was reasonably priced, clean, and very spacious, with a really comfortable bed and a flat screen TV. But the real bonus of staying... More

My first stay with River Bend Lodge was a couple of years ago. At that time the place was serviceable, but nothing to "write home about." The new management is a breath of fresh air. They are warm and welcoming. The rooms are clean and warm and the new beds are very comfortable. The bathrooms are clean with great water... More

The River Bend Lodge is a warm, welcoming place for family and friends to gather. The accommodations are spacious and the bathrooms are immaculate. I especially like that the grounds are large enough to be able to take long walks. Neil and Melissa go above and beyond their "job" of being hosts, making you feel like family.
