“Pure Excellence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012 via mobile

Had the pleasure of attending a wedding here just yesterday. Innkeepers Wim and Mieke could not have made us feel more welcome. Attention to every detail went without saying. Pleasantries abound. The inn is decorated with exquisite details showing the passion this couple has for their business. Would highly recommend a stay.

Palmetto Riverside Bed and Breakfast was the most amazing venue and atmosphere a couple could ever dream of to share their Big Day! The Bed and Breakfast is a very romantic luxurious mansion with charming historic aspects and is absolutely stunning. This is truly a gem.

The owners Wim and Mieke are absolutely fantastic. They are very professional, informative, easy to communicate with and clearly they have poured their hearts and souls into the flawless Bed & Breakfast. They went out of their way to help make everything perfect and truly made us feel that we were part of the Palmetto Riverside Bed & Breakfast family from the first time we met.

We did the Golden Package as well and Highly suggest it. We stayed Friday and Saturday. Everyone felt as though they had entered paradise as soon as they entered the immaculate house. The rooms were all grand and had amazing views. Each room was perfectly clean had charming aspects and such attention to detail that made it feel special and luxurious.

We had 100 people attend our wedding and this venue was perfectly accommodating. The ceremony was held in the front of the house under a beautiful tree with romantic Spanish moss over-looking the Manatee River waterfront during sunset. The reception was held in the back of the house which was the perfect elegant setting. The gorgeous gardens surrounded the remodeled patio large enough to accommodate all our guests with twinkle lights strung above reception setting the perfect mood and ambiance. There is also a large hard wood covered porch with beautiful lantern lights leading into a indoor area that was absolutely top notch.

Word to the wise: BOOK EARLY because the Palmetto Riverside Bed & Breakfast is spectacular and dates do fill up rather quickly.

Wim and Mieke - Thank You for making our Wedding Day so amazing!

Sincerely,

The Newlyweds - Mr. & Mrs. Michaud

I cannot recommend the Palmetto Riverside Bed and Breakfast enough!!! We also stayed as regular guests twice before the wedding just to enjoy to bed and breakfast. The rooms are beautiful, and the breakfast is AMAZING... WAY too much to actually eat everything.

For the wedding, we reserved the venue under their "Golden Package" which gave us the entire property for the weekend, which I would highly recommend because it allowed us to do some set-up and organization before hand. It was also great to have the night after to relax with family and friends. The house itself is gorgeous, and it showed in our photos and the day itself. We had app 85 guests, and it was the perfect size for us with more than enough room to have space to share.

Mieke and Wim, the owners, were probably the BEST part of the experience. They were so helpful in helping us plan the day based on their experiences. They were ALWAYS there with helpful suggestions, and were extremely responsive to emails and communications and we took their suggestions on other vendors on numerous occasions, including our caterer and were SOOOOO happy with all of their recommendations. We could not have been happier with our entire experience!

Our stay at Palmetto Riverside Bed and Breakfast was so wonderful.
Mieke and Wm are excellent hosts and their 2 daughters a delight.
Our room was beauitfully furnished as well as all the other rooms.
Breakfast was outstanding and so many healthy choices.
We also went to the public library and the museum in town another plus to our stay.
We sure do want a return stay in this wonderful Bed and Breakfast.
Thanks for all your extra treatment to welcome us.

We are just back from a trip to the USA visiting from Europe. We found Palmettoriverside Bed and Breakfast through Tripadvisor; The excellent rating this BnB gets, is very well deserved.
This is the best BnB experience we have ever had visiting BnB's all over the world. If we visit Florida again, we will certainly be a return guests!

I am dismayed to see the one-star review below since this person never even stayed at the Palmetto Riverside nor used their services. Tripadvisor should remove this. We weren't involved with any wedding, but we did stay there last spring. It was, perhaps, the nicest bed and breakfast we ever stayed at and we've stayed at probably a hundred. Besides the beautiful and immaculate home and room, and the quiet location, there were two things that made it amazingly special. The first was the stellar food! Breakfast consisted of numerous items brought on a serving cart and left by our little table for us to help ourselves. It's been a while and we've stayed at several other places throughout the Eastern U.S. since, but we do remember delicious homemade yogurt with berries, cold meats, cheeses, walnuts, different breads, amazing fruit smoothies, fresh fruits, orange juice, and much more we've forgotten, served with a copy of the local paper. Then there was a delicious hot entree. We opted for the French Toast, but they were other options, too. OK, now let's talk about the afternoon hors d'oeurves. My goodness, yummy hot stuffed mushrooms and a warm brie appetizer as we recall, served (as was breakfast) at a private table on the beautiful, enclosed, air-conditioned porch. Most surprising, while my husband chose red wine, they actually had my preferred sparkling white. We've never found any B & B to offer sparkling white before. Upon returning from dinner, we were offered an after dinner drink but declined as we were over-the-limit stuffed by this time. But let me tell you what made the Palmetto Riverside extra, extra special. It was the owners. This couple is from Belgium and I must say, I think the Europeans do it better. Never have we found more attentive, gracious service anywhere. Stay here and I'm positive you will be amazed, too.

Room Tip: This street is so quiet, any room would be a good choice. And they're all beautiful and immacula...
