I am neither a reviewer nor a Bed and Breakfast fan. My travel preference would be a suite at a modern hotel in an urban area. When travelling to Southern Ohio to visit family the options are limited. The Riverview Inn is one of my favorite places to stay. The Inn is comfortable, spacious, and clean. Ask for the river view suite which has three large bay windows to watch the river slowly amble by. The view is equally relaxing in all seasons. The house has everything a traveller needs from drinks (including wine and beer) in the fridge to hair dryers to a huge selection of DVD's to watch and much more. The proprieters are warm and thoughtful. The service is attentive and individualized. On my third visit I was pleasantly surprised to learn that they record what is served for breakfast so they can prepare it for you on the next stay. Bottom line: I can relax here as easily as I can relax in a suite at the W. Big thumbs up for George and Bobbie.
