Our children gave us a get-away for our 45th anniversary. My husband found the River House on line. I had been disapponted so many times by "so-called B&Bs" but decided to give it one more chance. We were welcomed by the owner, Gayle, upon arrival. She was quietly available to meet our needs for our entire stay. Her entire staff made us feel comfortable and at home. It was fine dining on Sunday evening. The food was delicious, the piano player was friendly and aimed to please. The service was great--we wanted for nothing. We stayed in the Chicken Coop. It was clean, comfortable and different--a great experience. Fresh coffee awaited us on the porch outside our door when we got up. A delicious breakfast was served in the smaller dining room which had a beautiful view outside. It was like being at my favorite grandmother's house. Gayle invited us to feel free to enjoy browsing around and we did. What a great relaxing wonderful B&B experience. We highly recommend The River House. You get what you pay for and more.
