My wife and I attended a wedding here so stayed for two nights since the lodging options in the area are limited and everything wedding was right here. As other reviewers have said the hotel makes no attempt to be modern, rather trying to recreate an early 1900's experience. In that they succeed nicely. Consider that the building is over... More

Relaxing, elegance from days gone by. Comfy beds and a delicious complimentary breakfast buffet. This 131 year old gem is full of neat antiques, and the grounds are lovely. Does it have all the bells and whistles of a modern chain hotel--no--it has something better--charm and character! Rooms are a bit small, and bathroom is clean, with good water pressure,... More

Interesting varied menu. I had beer cheese soup and Cuban sandwich. Soup was excellent sandwich soso. They used ciabatta roll for sandwich and it would have been much better on a more traditional bread. Friend had shrimp mac and cheese and said shrimp was good but pasta wasn't cooked enough. Nice historic location

We visited the Riverside Inn for the Father's Day buffet. I have been here before, and this inn always has such a peaceful atmosphere. Every time you visit this place, you see something unique you have not noticed before. The building is filled with antiques and artwork. The grounds were lush and beautiful this time of year. The meal had... More

The hotel staff went above and beyond my expectations! The food was excellent. The staff was friendly, the hotel was amazing, it was like stepping back in time! What a hidden treasure this hotel is! I highly recommend staying here.

The hotel is totally beautiful with many antiques. The diningroom was decorated for Spring with flowers, straw hats and tiny lights. It was picture perfect. Everyone is friendly and helpful. When we were there it was raining but the grounds are manicured and weddings are held in the garden. The hotel is very large with a ballroom and meeting rooms.... More

A friend of mine had been wanting to stay in this historic hotel for several years now, so for a birthday surprise, I reserved a room for us to experience it. The hotel was built back in the 1880's, and much of the decor reflects that. The rooms are very nice. They still have that "old" feeling to them despite... More

I was at the Riverside for a testimonial banquet, in the town where i went to college. The Riverside Inn is now 130 years old, and the place is fantastic. The rooms are quaint, and the antique furniture is amazing. The restaurant is really good. They have a free breakfast buffet for all guests who stay there, and the lunches... More
