Travelers' Choice
The Archer House River Inn occupies more than a central location in Northfield. For generations of guests and locals, it IS Northfield - a geographical and architectural landmark, a host to history for nearly 140 years, and an exemplar of the town's spirit of hospitality. Built in the French Second Empire style, the four-story red brick building is grand in design, rich in character, and impressive in its amenities - which include two full-service restaurants, a coffee shop, riverside lounge, conference space and more. Yet with just 36 rooms, no two of which are identical, the inn is intimate in scale and unique in feel. The Archer House also boasts the city's best location, straddling the town's main thoroughfare and the Cannon River. Beyond its prominent setting and venerable history, something else makes the Archer House special: a spirit reflected by the staff's pride in upholding a 140-year legacy of caring for guests, and the ownership's loving stewardship of a property that embodies the heart and soul of Northfield.

I had accidently reserved the wrong date. Ashley, the manager, checked me in and actually upgraded our room. Friendly and appreciated the business. The place is old and not in great condition. Rooms are spacious but Spartan. Bathroom remodel was nicely done. Elevator floor was quite dirty and was not vacuumed in a 20 hour period.

Northfield is a quaint town with nice shops and restaurants. We enjoyed a meal and drinks on the patio of the Contented Cow pub next door with great Bluegrass music. Temperature was lovely in the 70s.

We picked the place because we like the name but we had a wonderful stay, fun things to do. I's a shame the farmer's market wasn't held due to Covid concerns but we had great fun. My wife and I plan to return in the future. Dave Archer

Only complaint was the pillows were a little flat but they had plenty. Great view of the river and could walk right out of the building to go shopping, to dinner, etc. Was in a large room with whirlpool...was very nice! Especially for the rate that I paid. Daytime Staff were excellent!!!
