“Top Notch”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

We stayed in the motel. The room was everything we hoped and more. The river is seen from the deck and very close to walk to. The woman who owns this place was very friendly upon our arrival including giving me 8 extra packets of coffee when I explained to her that I loved coffee :) We enjoyed the stay and the property is very well maintained. It is nice to have private beach access. We used Windy's Rental for our canoe and were able to just "park" the canoe on Rivers Edge property when we were done for the day. The bed was comfortable, the room was very clean. We saw the other options for lodging around town and were VERY glad we chose to stay at Rivers Edge.

I know some people wrote comments about them being too harsh, I think it's just that they want the atmosphere to be quiet and friendly for families and other guests. If you are in to partying, this will not be the place for you. But if you want a nice, quiet retreat, it's worth every dime.

Room Tip: Room 8 if you are wanting a King size bed was very beautiful and had a great view.

Room was very, very clean. It is a "camping" type of experience in Eminence so keep that in mind. Room was minimal and rustic, but had mini fridge, microwave and air. Great location! Several restaurants within blocks. Rubys is great for breakfast and Orchard Restaurant is awesome for dinner! Family owned resort.

For the past four years a group of friends have stayed here for a few day around the 4th of July holiday. The facility is located adjacent to the Jacks' Fork River and has a variety of rooms/cabins available. We have always stayed in room located in the main lodge. The rooms are simple, clean and well-maintained. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. There are several dining places that are within an easy walk or drive. Just don't expect anything fancy.

Eminence is a small town and it's primary tourism appears to be float trips on the river. Choosing accommodation in a rural area can be a challenge but we were so happy we chose River's Edge. The Resort (Inn, Cabins and River Houses) is situated right on the banks of the Jacks Fork River. The water was high during our weekend visit (it was raining and had been for days) so it was neat to experience the true edge of the river. By morning the river had receded to it's normal course a couple hundred feet from the inn.

The room was very clean, it smelled like suntan lotion and fresh laundry. The bathroom was small and adequate and looked as if it had been updated. I liked the barn wood that ran around the bottom half of the walls in the bathroom and room, it gave the space a cozy down-home feel. The hotel is wooden, and has beautiful wooden decks that overlook the river. Sliding glass doors open out on to the common deck.

It's obvious the owners care a great deal about the property. Everything seemed well maintained and the flowers were beautiful. They had even planted flowers along the edge of the parking lot and inn.

The person at the check in desk was very helpful and gave us wonderful maps and directions to the springs in the area. They also suggested somewhere to eat (which had a great cheeseburger but was very smoky).

There are limited options in the area, but I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

This was our second stay in the Captain's Cabin. The female owner is a very nice woman-not sure about the other comments. We were there to explore the areas around Emminence (Blue Springs, Alley Spring, Rocky Creek etc..so didn't spend much time at the resort. Our last night there was raining so we lit a fire and enjoyed it. This is a very nice place to stay in town and I feel the owners really take pride in keeping it nice. I would recommend to anyone staying in town. We also had a very good pizza from the convenience store at the top of River's Edge entrance.

We had no reservation when we arrived in Eminence on one of the busiest weekends of the year. There was a cancellation so we stayed in a king bed room on the end. The owner wasn't rude, like other's have said. She was fine, and gave us a map that we used a lot. The room was expensive, but we weren't in any place to haggle since it was probably the last room in town. We enjoyed our stay and would go back. The place isn't on the river though, so that was a bit disappointing.

i have been staying at River's Edge Resort for over 30 years. The Jacks Fork River used to pass by the edge of the property, but then the Great Flood of '93 changed the course of the river to the opposite bank. In the beginning as a bed n breakfast, Lynette left a scrumptious breakfast outside ur door. Through the years, the bed and breakfast has evolved into an amazing resort. Alan and Lynette also function as great travel guides for the area, providing you with directions and maps to local attractions. A relaxing hot tub awaits you after an exciting day on the river, and other amenities include ping pong, volleyball, or a barbeque with family and friends. By far, the best place to stay in Eminence!!!

Room Tip: Lynette and Alan are the best advisors regarding what room is most appropriate for your group.
