Reviewed February 24, 2012

Linda, Carolyn, Dan, and Eric are wonderful host...catering to your every need. Wonderful, good energy people.
Nice porches, warm library-game room, perfect back bar.
Yummy breakfast, too.

Room Tip: Every room is perfect! We had six for the weekend. All were roomy and well appointed.

I stay at the Riverdale Inn about twice a year. I also LIVE 10 minutes away from there. If I need a bit of spoiling or have a new lady in my life and we need a "get away from the world" weekend. this is THE place. Its beautifully restored and preserved from the turn of LAST century and I love it. You cannot beat the place. There's a different room for every taste and budget. The pictures on their site are good representations, BUT you just gotta see it in person. Then you know just how beautiful the place is and how little the photos do justice. Its not bad pictures or angels... its just,,, well, if a picture is worth 1000 words, there's nowhere near enough time or space here to tell you. Go see it. You'll be amazed. I'll never go anywhere else.

Room Tip: Stayed in Shadowlawn and the bed is marvelous. Stayed in Roosevelt and its a bath lover's dream...

Tried out the Lancaster (carriage house) this time. As always had a great time. Hostess Carolyn always makes guests welcome and Eric is quick to point out items of interest. Modern ammenities in a Victorian setting. Very welcoming. Hope to see you there.

My Sister in law and I stayed here this January for four days...we thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who wants comfort and character in their lodgings. The grand old house was a pleasure to live in, and our room was beautiful and perfectly appointed. The staff of the Inn were wonderfully helpful and caring. They cooked lovely breakfasts and a surprisingly tasty "High Tea" that we were more than happy with. They have a little bar for evening drinks and a computer that is always "on line". I loved the very special doggy, Gracie who added to the friendly atmosphere of the Inn. The location of the Inn was superb...we were able to walk to many interesting restaurants and shops and take a trolley or bus to outlying areas. You can't go wrong with the Riverdale Inn...as long as you can climb stairs.

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely...choose the first floor if you don't like climbing stairs!

Linda and Carolyn were the most gracious and charming hostesses. We didn't want for a thing. The Inn is gorgeous and close to everything. The rooms are beautiful and the food is excellent. We stayed 4 days/3 nights, and it was the best birthday I've ever had. I would definitely stay again and would recommend it to everyone. I did not want to leave.

Run by wonderful people who make it their goal to make you feel like you are at home. Everyone makes you feel welcomed (even Gracie the "inn dog" welcomes you!). It is warm and welcoming!

Room Tip: They list all the rooms online so you can make the appropriate selection ahed of time. Corner room...

This is a fabulous place for a relaxing, fun weekend getaway. The breakfast was great, with several items to choose from. The room we stayed in was so wonderful that we stayed in our room much of our visit. A nice flat screen TV with diverse cable choices was available as was speedy internet service. There was plenty of room to spread out and feel at home. Afternoon tea was a great touch. The antiques and Inn itself are amazing and fun to admire. Great stay!

Room Tip: Third floor is very private, but you have to walk stairs. All rooms were pretty special
