A Home Away from Home

5 on July 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

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!

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.

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!

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

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!
