Great Site for a Family Reunion

5 on August 07, 2014

What a treasure in a beautiful, tree-lined neighborhood! We had great breakfast visits with family on the deck overlooking a colorful garden and evening gatherings on the spacious front porch. The top notch decorating and art throughout the house was fun to explore. Food was fantastic. Nita was a gracious host. I loved hearing the fountain and watching the birds and squirrels in the trees as we sat on our private porch. This was a perfect place for a family reunion.


Beautiful B&B

The Riverview Guest House is a nice, quaint B&B. The house was absolutely gorgeous and had a different kind of charm in every room. Nita was a fabulous host and made a wonderful breakfast. She was very accommodating to any needs we had. The top floor has a balcony in the back which is great for relaxing at night. If I ever find myself in Kankakee again I will definitely stay here!

Family Vacation

This was my first B&B in the US. I stay in several in Europe. I felt very comfortable and really appreciated our hostess. It was especially nice to have my own bathroom!


Good Times at Riverside

I loved staying in this beautiful old home. Nita was a very gracious hostess. Her home was open to us -- she goes above and beyond what a typical B&B would offer.


I will return!!!!

I was lucky enough to spend a week at the riverside bed and breakfast. I was treated as a friend, not just a guest. It was one of the best experiences that i have had at a bed and breakfast. The hostess, Nita, makes her home warm and inviting to all that past through the doors. She provides more ammenities than any other b&b where I have stayed. There is an upstairs deck which overlooks a beautiful back garden. What a wonderful way to end a busy day -just sitting with a glass of wine watching the sun set. The house is filled with beautiful interesting antiques. I truly recommend staying at a place where you can feel at home no matter far you have traveled from your own home


Great Spot
