New Years eve in Snow Hill

4.6 on January 05, 2016

My wife and I spent a very pleasant two days in Snow Hill. We had stayed at the very River House with the previous owners and it was nice to stay there again. The Inn is holding up well and the new owners have improved on breakfast and the general level of service. I know Snow Hill well and it's nice to see the town coming back. All in all it was enjoyable and I recommend it for anyone who would like to experience this beautiful part of the Shore.

Great place to chill and relax

Lovely getaway

A lovely place to get away from the busy world and relax in a hospitable small-town environment. This B&B is a lovely Victorian house with owners who clearly care about not only the decor but also the service they provide to their guests. Snow Hill itself is quiet, quaint, and a quality place to stay.

Beautiful cottage on the Pokomoke!

My wife and I spent our 34th wedding anniversary at the River House Inn. The weather didn't cooperate but at least hurricane Jaquin passed us by. In addition to the rooms in the main house there are several cottages on the property. We stayed in the Yacht Room. I highly recommend this room or the one above it, the Lighthouse Room. They are closest to the river and offer a great view from the large porches. Breakfasts in the main house each morning were excellent. (Try the world famous waffles). I also recommend dinner at the Blue Dog which is within walking distance. (Only open on Friday and Saturday. Reservations recommended). The food was fair but the show was great. I highly recommend this B&B

Couldn't be happier with the accommodations and the inn keepers! The room was spotless, and comfortable, the building was well kept. The inn keepers greeted us with a warm welcome and a glass of wine! The breakfast can only be described as DELICIOUS! The waffles are to die for! We would definitely recommend this place to everyone. Can't wait to go back! It truly was OUTSTANDING!

Loved River House Inn!!

River House Inn is an exceptional B&B! The breakfast is excellent and the inn keepers are gracious and welcoming. We stayed in the first floor of the cottage facing the river (Yacht Club Room) and enjoyed our private porch and comfortable accommodations. We also enjoyed the pool area - very nice - even has a seating area with a fire pit. Check out this B&B, you will love it.

Main house (of 3) is expected to see renovations in the next year. Slightly dusty, overhead fan in room broken. Outdoors very comfortable with large gazebo and clean pool. Three interesting local restaurants within a short walk. Poconoke River nature cruise was informative and relaxing. Will return next summer.

Best vacation place if you want to take your pets along

4.0 on August 23, 2015

The entire place is fenced which makes it an ideal place for the pets and kids to run around safely. Breakfast is freshly made each morning is of top quality. Your dog may love to play with their black lab puppy "Orka". Swimming pool and the grill at the pool side is great for the pool parties. The place is 30 minutes drive to dog-friendly Assateague beach and Ocean City. Highly recommended place for pet lovers. We will visit this place again.

Gentle Tranquility In A Lovely Setting

We (my husband, our dogs and I) stayed in the Yacht Room with its huge porch overlooking the Pocomoke River. The quiet efficiency of the place ensures that every need had been anticipated. Our dogs could romp in the beautiful spring gardens (with a refuse bin discreetly available for the poop bags) with Orca, the well-mannered, child-friendly dog of the owners. The amiable owners, besides being superior cooks, have that incredible ability to be both invisible and on-call found only at truly 5-star inns. It was clear from hearing other guests that they make a point of staying here as often as possible. As will we.
