My wife and I went on 5 day vacation for our 14th anniversary. This was our last place to stay. We were blown away by the beauty. We stayed in the Jane Austin Sweet. This particular room was gorgeous. The staff, at our request, had a bottle of champagne on ice waiting in our room. It was the most perfect... More

We stayed in the Agatha Christie suite on a Friday night to celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary. The main house is absolutely beautiful! We were greeted by a friendly young woman who toured us around, pointing out the 2 dining rooms where breakfast would be served in the morning, various places to lounge and relax, the "honor system" wine/champagne bar...

My husband and I received a gift card to the Rivertown Inn, so we went leaving our 2 year old and 4 month child with the grandparents. This was our first time away (without BOTH kids) and it was just what we needed. Incredibly romantic, fabulous service, and impeccable food. It is a bit pricy, but well worth it. We... More

Impeccable service and bountiful breakfast. We were treated like king and queen! Come early, stay late, and explore the property. Walk down to Stillwater for shops and dinner; the... More

I hosted my friend's Bridal Shower at Rivertown Inn this past weekend. It was fabulous! All of the girls had summer dresses and facinators. Rivertown Inn was the perfect setting for this event.
