My girlfriend and I recently spent a romantic weekend at Riverdog in the cedarsuite. We are both working professionals, travel frequently, and are quite selective when it comes to accommodations. In fact, the previous month we stayed at the Glendorn, a 4-star Relais and Chateaux property, in Pennsylvania. We couldn't believe how unique and luxurious (think upscale rustic) our suite was at Riverdog. It featured a wonderful stone fireplace, beautiful wood work at every turn, and avant guard artwork that is frequently featured at art shows around the country. In addition, the grounds are lush, secluded, and house an on-premise art gallery. Last but not least, I was utterly *shocked* at the low price per night until I learned that Riverdog has only been open as a retreat or non-traditional B&B for something like a year or so. As word spreads, I personally feel that they will be able to charge at least double what they're charging now ... and that would still be a good value!
