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

It's Nita who makes the visit so much fun. She has a great personality, great food, & lets her guests come and go. She knows the history of the Riverview and the River Historic District. I always learn (and laugh) at the Riverview Guest House.
