“Comfortable & Convenient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

What a comfortable and enjoyable stay we had for three nights at this B&B. Monnie & Owen, Innkeepers/owners are the consummate hostess and host and the breakfasts were delicious. This B&B is located close to our family and provided a "homey" environment and the beds were extremely comfortable. The entire house is in period design from the late 1800's, a true Victorian with the exception of a TV in every room. The weather had become quite warm and the fan and road noise when the window was open was somewhat distracting. There was no AC. However, we had wonderful conversations over breakfasts with the owners and would return again when in the area.

Room Tip: A front facing room would probably be best to decrease road noise if the windows were open.

Owen and I are so happy that you were pleased with your stay. We enjoyed our conversations over breakfast each day, and look forward, as you suggested, to getting together with you and Cam when I visit my friend in Naples next spring! As you may not know, this has been an unusually cool spring in this area with temperatures in the low 50's most nights. The sudden surge in temperature those couple of days that you stayed with us took everyone around here by surprise. We always install window air conditioning units in each room every spring, which, due to the unusually cool temperatures this spring, we put off a week or so. Mother Nature played a trick, but the lesson we learned was to install those air conditioning units earlier in the spring, regardless of the temperatures. We look forward to your return when you visit family again! Monnie

Great location steps from shops and resturants in Clinton. Monnie and Owen, the owners were warm and friendly. Breakfasts were HUGE, masterfully cooked and customized to each guests liking... Chocolates and wine greeted us upon each nights return. The rooms were cozy and maybe a bit more "Victorian" than our tastes would call for but, it is, a Victorian inn after all. A bit short on counter space to stash your stuff, but was a very homey environment. Most should feel very content staying at this spot. The front bedroom (w/king bed), from the several that we saw and where we stayed was, I think, the best room in the house....

Room Tip: Front room (king) was great - no noise, quiet, as the highway is nearby. Don't know if the other...

I am soooo overdue to write this. I stayed here several months ago and have been meaning to log on and write a review ever since. The owners were so personable, making it feel like a home to me as I was out there traveling on my own to visit family. What a wonderful alternative to a corporate motel, and for less than the two biggest area hotels. I expect to stay here on my next visits as well, if they're available.
Having stayed at around 200 B&B's I do know that Victorians show their age a bit--floors a bit creaky, layers of paint that have built up over the years. But that is part of the history of the place. I much prefer that to a place that is pristine yet soul-less. I just felt well-taken care of the whole time. Not fussy, just caring.

We had such a romantic get-away to Riverside Victorian while in town for my friend's wedding! The place was charming and comfortable, and the owners made us feel very welcome even though we were coming in late at night. It was in a nice quiet location, but main street was just a few minutes stroll away. The rooms have a fridge & A/C and a very comfortable bed. What a fabulous experience!

When my fiancé (now husband) and I decided to have our wedding at Valley Crest Farm and Preserve in Lebanon, I knew I wanted to try and find a B&B in the area. I love the personal homey atmosphere of a bed and breakfast vs a conventional hotel. Riverside Victorian was literally a 5 minute straight-shot from the wedding venue so I booked 5 of the 6 rooms for us and our bridal party for that weekend.

Monnie and Owen are so nice and accommodating. Felt like we were spending the weekend with family members - we even returned after the wedding to find congratulatory balloons in the dining room. The breakfasts were tasty, the rooms cozy and clean, and they really opened the place to us to relax and unwind. Always a bottle of wine open in the dining room too. ;)

The location was obviously ideal for our wedding this weekend but also within walking distance to a variety of shops and restaurants in Clinton. Looking forward to returning next year for our anniversary.

My wonderful boyfriend surprised me for our anniversary and we stayed at the Riverside Victorian. When you walk in you immediately feel welcomed and cozy. Our room was clean and perfect for what we wanted. The owners were wonderful and cooked us an amazing breakfast. It's a must stay if you're in the Clinton area!

We stayed two nights at the Riverside B&B. It was very enjoyable and it felt like home. You won't be disappointed on any front. The rooms were clean, the bed was comfy and the breakfast was great. It was just a quick walk to restaurants and gift shops.
