"A Hidden Gem"

5 en febrero 19, 2015

My husband and I decided to take a few days and relax after our Valentine's Day wedding. I googled B & B's and was surprised to find one 20 minutes from my home. We had never been to a B & B and didn't know quite what to expect. To our surprise it was one of the best experiences we have ever had. We stayed in the Timber Suite and it was immaculate and beautifully decorated. And who could forget the view of the river out of the 20 foot long window. We saw quite a few eagles also. The hot tub was so inviting on such cold days. Now, let me get to the best part. Patty's gourmet breakfasts. WOW! They are made with such love. She set up a beautiful table with red valentine candles for us. We felt so special. I can't wait to go back again. Although it is not far from home it feels like you are really away on a wonderful trip. Thanks so much Patty for your hospitality, kind words and conversation. We'll be back and next time we are bringing our fishing poles. Keith and Kelly G.

A beautiful B&B you cannot miss!!

My wife and I decided to try a bed & breakfast for the first time. We were celebrating our birthdays together. Patty was extremely helpful and full of information about the area. We stayed in the Timber Suite and it was AMAZING! Very roomy, full size bathroom, awesome screened porch and hot tub! It was cold out but that's the best time for a hot tub! Breakfast was provided and it was delicious. We had a few courses for each and the food was to die for! On Sunday, Patty & Jim joined us for breakfast and it was great to chat and learn about them and the area. We highly recommend this cozy B&B to anyone out there looking for a great getaway! I was able to see the other rooms as well and they were also beautiful. We also signed up for a couples massage. The therapist comes onsite and right in your room. It was perfect! Located right on the river, we look forward to a summer trip to do a little fishing as well. 5 stars all the way! Can't wait to go back!! Eric & Dana B.

Thank you for your kind review...Welcome to the B&B lodging "crowd"!

Perfect Getaway !!

My husband and I saw the reviews and thought we would try this bed and breakfast for our little getaway. The room was immaculate, great view of the river, robes for your use, cute little fireplace, hot tub and everything we needed we had. Patty was such a wonderful hostess. All I have to say about breakfast is AWESOME!! Her lasagna quiche and salad with fruit and candied walnuts was soooo delicious! Patty had the table set up sooo cute for my husband and I. The view again while eating was amazing! We were so full we didn't eat anything else the entire day! Patty feeds you well! This was our first time to a bed and breakfast and we will definitely be returning here again!

Happy Anniversary to Us

4,8 en octubre 17, 2014

Came across River House while searching for a last minute getaway to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Lots of previous positive reviews led me to pick River House and the photos on the website led me to choose the Bordello suite (which luckily was available). Perfect pick! The room was wonderful, the breakfasts were outstanding and our hosts Patty & Jim couldn't have been nicer! We will definitely be back!

Respuesta del propietario

Thank you for taking the time to help us maintain current up-to-date reviews...And, THANK YOU for your kind comments! Love to see you again!

Completely exceeded our expectations!

5 en agosto 04, 2014

Everything was top notch here! From communication, to promptness, to cleanliness, to the size of the lodge and rooms, the amount of bathrooms, the delicious breakfast we had, the availability of the innkeeper and her husband, proximity to other activities, and everything in between, we were thrilled. We were a group of 10 guys for a bachelor party weekend, and we are already planning our next guys' trip back here (perhaps with all of our ladies as well). I could not recommend this place any more!

Nice place in Rockford area!

Super breakfast! I loved the table...very interesting!!

A Home Away from Home

5 en julio 18, 2014

River House reminds me of the home I grew up in on the Rock River. The suite we stayed in had a spectacular view of the river. The Timber Suite that we stayed in had a living area large enough for us to entertain family and friends. The king sized bed was very comfortable. We had a lovely screened in porch with a hot tub. The common areas inside and out were beautiful and comfortable. Patty's breakfasts were the best we ever had anywhere and we have travelled the world from Europe to South Africa. We have stayed at River House twice--both times for a week and we will be back.

Wonderful B & B

4,6 en julio 15, 2014

My husband and I were first married, and then spent our first honeymoon night at The River House. Patty & her husband Jim couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating.The suite in which we stayed had a beautiful veiw overlooking the river and its own private patio with a jacuzzi. The entire place was immaculate. Patty makes an amazing gourmet breakfast that was as appealing to the eye as it was to the palate. We could not have been happier or more satisfied with our entire experience!

Respuesta del propietario

Your comments are appreciated! And our thanks to you newlyweds for the added "smile" our B&B acquired with your happy honeymoon. Come and add another smile for your first Anniversary...We'll keep the light on!. :)

as always-----

Patty and Jim remain simply outstanding----the warm welcome, the spotless room and the unbelievable breakfast that never disappoints---all this with a beautiful view! This is "our place" when we visit the family.

Respuesta del propietario

Thank you for taking the time to write these kind words. It feels wonderful when guests call the B&B "their place"...It's the very best compliment we can receive!

We got engaged

Attended a family reunion over the weekend. Had a wonderful time!!!!!! The food provided outside of reunion meals was great. Amenities with a homey feel was perfect. Can't say enough good things about this getaway. Would so recommend this lodge to anyone that wants or needs to pamper or indulge themselves.

Wonderful B&B

4,6 en octubre 08, 2012

Wow Wow and Wow!! What a great place! Patty and Jim are just nicest people! This place has the whole package for relaxation. My wife and I really enjoyed the Bordello Suite, super comfortable bed, amazing shower, great bird watching with great views of the Rock River. But let me tell you, Patty makes the most spectacular breakfasts!! She is a true wizard in the kitchen. Thank you so much, we will be back!

I love to cook...Feels to good when guests love to eat what I cook! Thank you for taking the time to write this review. It is much appreciated!

Wonderful Weekend

5 en septiembre 18, 2012

A great getaway not far from home. Patty and Jim were the perfect hosts. Our suite was supplied with everything we needed and more. A great night sleep on the most comfortable bed. Breakfast was a gourmet treat. We were able to relax and enjoy ourselves in a beautiful setting. Can't wait to visit again!

We stayed at this B&B for the first time in October 2011. When looking for B&Bs on the internet we were kind of surprised to find Machesney Park/Rockford as the locale since I never pegged that area as a B&B type area. Wow, was I wrong! We were in the Getaway Lodge and stayed in the Timber Suite. Even though there are video clips of each of the rooms on the website, the videos did not do the room justice. It was huge, comfortable with a spectacular view and the adjoining private porch with the hot tub was great. Even though you are super close to local eateries and entertainment, you really feel like you're "away" from everything with the property being right on the river, and set back from the road. Patty was incredibly friendly and helpful. Maybe it's just me, but there's always that question mark when staying at a Bed and Breakfast. I mean, you're there in someone's home. Will it be awkward? Private? Uncomfortable? It was definitely not awkward or uncomfortable and we were in our own little world. And in the morning, breakfast was AMAZING. Patty said to come hungry and we listened, much to our delight! Both the food and conversation around the breakfast table were awesome! It was so nice to have our room and stay be romantic and private and a bit secluded from the kids and stresses, but then have a nice friendly conversation-filled breakfast. We would definitely return again and would highly recommend to others.

Respuesta del propietario

It feels really good when a guest enjoys the breakfast table conversation. Sharing stories and smiles is fun for everyone and, to this innkeeper, an important facet of the B&B lodging experience. Thanks for telling others how very special it was for you! Your kind compliments are much appreciated!

What A Place!

My husband and I recently went to visit our daughter in Illinois it is the first time we had been there. I did not want to stay in a Motel because of past bad experiences with cleansiness . From my first phone conversation with Patty to make reservations til the end of our stay I have never been so happy and felt so relaxed. It was beautiful and I will choose B & B again. It was like our home away from home. Donna and Les Binion

Respuesta del propietario

Oh, how I LOVE it when a first time B&B guest says they have been converted to our style of lodging...Very best compliment I can ever get is to "turn" a hotel guest into a confirmed bed and breakfast aficionado! Your comments are sincerely appreciated!

Lovely B&B/Inn close to Rock Cut St. Park & Rock River

4,2 en agosto 31, 2011

Two Inns in one location really, and both are lovely, quiet, relaxing. Patty is a great host, knows when to pamper and when to provide quiet space. If you want to be close to nature but still sleeping in style this is a good choice. Terri & Dave Erickson

Thanks for your kind words...They are appreciated! Next time you come, we'll definitely have to pick a little bluegrass music together!

perfect getaway near Rockford

We had a wonderful stay in the Bordello room. Love the porch and the view of the river. Patty and her husband took good care of us. Patty's breakfasts were lovely and superb! My parents live in Rockford and felt they were on a getaway when they visited us at the River House. It was quiet, relaxing, and welcoming. We're very glad we chose to stay here.

Respuesta del propietario

Thank you for your kind comments. So happy we were able to provide a welcome place for your family visit!

We stayed in the Frontier Suite and the room itself was beautiful and very clean. Snacks and soda were provided free of charge and every consideration for us was made beforehand. The B & B sits right beside the river, and the view was beautiful! The owners made us a two-plate gourmet breakfast in the morning and man, can she cook! Delicious! Can't wait for our second stay!

Respuesta del propietario

It's so wonderful when guests come to stay, smile and enjoy, and then tell others...THANK YOU! You are the reason why I love being an innkeeper!

Awesome Experience

We stayed in the frontier suite and everything was perfect. It was a surprise for my boyfriends birthday and Patty enjoyed being in on the surprise, we had a great time. Who knew Rockford area had such a great little getaway spot?!

Respuesta del propietario

Thank you for the kind review. It is much appreciated! Your time taken in doing so will help potential guests to know a little more about us and what to expect at our B&B.

Excellent & Unique

We loved this B & B. We stayed in the Bordello suite for our 29th wedding anniversary. This suite is amazing. We had everything we needed for a romantic getaway. We will defiantly be back next year. Thanks Patty for creating such a lovley place and sharing it with others.

River House sets a high standard...

4,6 en septiembre 16, 2010

We really enjoyed our stay at River House B&B. They have now set the standard for any other B&B we may ever stay in again. The house and grounds are so nice-- And the conversation with the innkeepers and other guests at the breakfast table really made it feel like vacationing with "old friends". The food was...hmmm! outstanding!...I don't even know what to say because the food was so different from what I'd expected and so YUMMY! at the same time. We will be back to this place again...

Romantic amenities...Relaxing atmosphere...

5 en junio 11, 2010

This is our 4th Anniversary and our 4th stay at River House B&B...And we have never been disappointed. It's always clean, great beds, and a fantastic breakfast. As a matter of fact, I think we'd come just for the breakfast all by itself, it's that special! But it's not just the food that keeps us coming back, it's the romantic amenities and the relaxing atmosphere of the place. You can tell the innkeepers really care about the guest experience...It shows in their property, and in their faces, that they love what they do. You can't go wrong here!
