This is such a special place, a trip back to another era. The dining room is the same as it has been for over a century...gorgeous! Food is fantastic. If you desire something more casual, the lounge is fun and bar appetizers are very good (try the homemade provolone encrusted wheel). The staff here are top notch....service is excellent. The...

Check in was easy. This is an old Inn, 131 years in business. The rooms are like walking back in time...everything is antique. The place is neat..but no TV..no phones...no fridge or microwave...it was clean, quite and peaceful. They have dinner theatre on the weekends. They have a fantastic breakfast. Check out was easy as they gave you your receipt... More

I've been eating in the Concord Room of the Riverside Inn ever since moving to this general area seven years ago, as it's a pleasant destination for a day trip. I had lunch there today with out-of-town visitors, thinking to show them some local color. (And they loved the authentic Victorian aura of the hotel) But I have been disappointed... More

My daughter and I were treated wonderful from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. Turn of the Century Hotel with the most delightful Pub. We even played gin rummy at a pub table! Extremely reasonable prices and wonderful staff. Will definitely return... Hopefully to see a "sprit" or two!

The gardens and grounds are beautiful. The wide, expansive porch is to die for. Antiques abound throughout. The lounge is very attractive with a well stocked bar and our bar tendress was very pleasant and helpful. In fact all of the staff was pleasant, friendly and courteous. Rooms are vintage but functional. Bathroom was clean. Bed was comfortable but a... More

We ate there last Sat. for the prime rib buffet. The food was excellent, but did not include any beverages or desserts. I think it should have for the price of it. The hotel is an excellent historic place and the landscaping is excellent and well taken care of. They have many weddings here and dinner theaters available. Well known... More

Clean rooms and great staff. Maybe have a few rooms with tv as an option as well as a information guide in the rooms. Room service would be a plus also. Will stay there again when I am in the area....

Did not stay here...went w friends for dinner. Dining room elegant, server was pleasant and efficient. Dinner was wonderful...I had a sea food platter with shrimp, clams and scallops.. Scallops are difficult to prepare properly and these were done to perfection...perhaps the best I have ever had dessert tray had a piece of lemon mango cheesecake (that hubby and I... More
