My boyfriend and I stayed over New Years Eve weekend and had a fabulous time.
Our room was charming in a Yankee rustic kind of way. Kathe and Victor, the Swiss couple who own the place are awesome. Kathe runs the inn and Victor is the head chef at the Riverview Restaurant, attached to the Inn. The room and bathroom were very clean.
The food is DELICIOUS! We had breakfast (which is included with the room) and dinner there everyday. I suggest the french toast or blueberry pancakes for breakfast, any of the pork or fish specials for dinner, and the maple bacon ice cream (made locally) for dessert. If you are staying someplace else, it's worth the trip to dinner. Locals and guests staying at other hotels make the trip to Riverview to eat, which says a lot about the food. Restaurant staff were very friendly too.
In the mornings, you can see chickadees around the bird-feeder, by the river, not a bad way to start the day.
There are a couple cozy common areas, one with a fireplace, and another with books and games to play.
A cute black cat roams about. I didn't see him/her everyday during the my stay, but wanted to give a heads up for those who are highly allergic. I'd ask before booking.
