“A special B&B with a very special breakfast”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

We selected the River House Inn from excellent reviews on several web sites. Our two-night visit exceeded our high expectations. The breakfast was plentiful - the waffles are world famous so do not miss them. The inn keepers heated the pool on our late Sept. visit so I could swim. The innkeepers instantly made us feel at home and the fire in the outdoor fireplace was a nice fitting end to the day. We selected the location as we wanted to go to Smith Island and Chincoteague. We live on the Eastern Shore but we will be coming back as there is so much more to explore on the lower Eastern Shore.

Room Tip: The East Room is the only one with a King bed, but the comments about it facing the street and havin...

I don't think there is much I can add that isn't said below 70 or 80 times. A nice place to say. Excellent hosts. Great breakfasts. Nice pool (which we didn't use because we forgot bathing suits.) Just a peaceful, relaxing place to kick back. If we are ever back in the area I would welcome an oportunity to stop by again. Everything a nice B&B should be.

That's what it feels like for me at the River House Inn. The breakfast will keep you going for the whole day while you explore the area. Snow Hill is a center for the arts... we enjoyed a performance of "A Midsummer's Night's Dream" in the nearby park (walking distance) and a wonderful singing waiter and piano while dining at The Blue Dog (also walking distance). At historical Furnacetown (very close by) we enjoyed a very interesting presentation by a blacksmith while he made an iron hook from start to finish. We took a short ride to Assateague National Seashore and photographed a group of wild ponies grazing by the roadside until the park ranger came by with a bullhorn said we were in a no parking zone and would we please finish taking our pictures and move our cars. I even found a WalMart on the way back. The town of Berlin (where "The Runaway Bride" was filmed) is a 15 min drive away and has enough shops for an entire day of shopping. I highly recommend one called Bruder Hill which is conveniently next to a free and shaded parking lot. The town of Snow Hill itself is full of historic homes, and I plan to do a walking tour to see them all when I return at Christmastime. As for the River House Inn itself, it's in the best location in town. There is a small general market within walking distance that also sells delicious hand scooped ice cream. The house has screened back porches on the 1st and 2nd stories...a great place for an early morning cup of coffee and laptop before breakfast. Coffee is available 24 hrs in the upstairs hallway. The pool is a great way to relax...pool towels and floats are provided. The huge back yard slopes down to the river where there are chairs and a double tree swing along the way. The owners, Dwayne and Rick, are wonderful people who really enjoy having you as a guest in their home. And Dwayne makes a streiselkucken coffee cake that puts Entenmann's to shame.

We needed a weekend retreat to get away and relax from the stress of daily life. This place certainly filled the bill! The owners were wonderfully friendly and we enjoyed every minute in their company; the room was clean, beautiful, and included everything we needed; the pool was inviting;, and the view from our room and porch was the best! Not to mention the amazing breakfasts - the waffles are to die for. We could not image a better experience on Delmarva.

Room Tip: We were in the "Lighthouse Room" which is on the second floor, closes to the Pocomoke Rive...

I guess Catwomyn has said it all! Spent 3 nights there to celebrate the same friends' wedding anniversary party. Had a wonderful time. The River house Inn is a great place to stay. Rick and Dwayne, the owners, are super friendly and very helpful. The food is excellent. Even the Belgian waffles are as good as at home :o)
I would highly recommend this place and would go back again if I have the opportunity.

We spent several days at the River House Inn as part of a large group (approx. 20 people) celebrating friends' wedding anniversary. We had such a great time -- Rick and Dwayne were such wonderful hosts and I have never had such amazing breakfasts as these guys put together each morning. Pastries, waffles, almond French toast, bacon, sausage, hash browns, quiches -- it was fantastic! The property itself is great -- we stayed in the main house, in the Thebaud room, which was spacious with a large bathroom; it was very nicely decorated and immaculately clean. There are also several separate, large cottages available, and if you stay in a cottage, you can bring your dogs with you, which some of our friends did. We spent a lot of time in the pool, which was kept very clean. There is lots of room to lounge around the pool, including a covered gazebo with ceiling fan when you want some shade. You can also walk down to the river and swing in one of the swings there -- very relaxing, and pretty. We will definitely be returning here. It was certainly ideal for our large group and RIck and Dwayne really did go out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable.

Room Tip: As noted above, if you stay in a cottage, you can bring your dog.

The Inn was lovely and clean and had a great yard down to the river and a warm pool! Rick made us a delicious breakfast and also fixed one of our bikes and even made us hard boiled eggs for a picnic. A thoughtful nice guy and a clean and friendly place.
