Great weekend stay!

5 on April 22, 2015

Great stay! Large comfortable rooms! Mansion has a fascinating story which is expertly told by owner Don.


Fabulous stay!

5 on March 12, 2015

We had stayed at Rivercene several years ago and found it to be once again a wonderful stay. The current owners were so knowledgeable about the area and the home. Beautifully redone. Highly recommend this as a quiet stop over.


A truly must visit B and B

5 on March 11, 2015

We have stayed at Rivercene multiple times and every visit is wonderful. The mansion itself is amazing and the time and effort that Don and Joe have put into it really shows. They are wonderful hosts that truly enjoy interacting with every visitor. The breakfast is wonderful...I just can't say enough about this wonderful Bed and Breakfast... Jason and Steffany Cullom


Perfect! Fun! Worth every penny!

5 on February 23, 2015

I can't say enough about Rivercene. It's beautiful inside and out (with the caveat that it's still a work in progress, as to some of the restoration, but you only notice some of that on the outside). Donn and Joe own it, but Joe is the quiet, behind-the-scenes chef, while Donn is the outgoing, somewhat flamboyant host. The entrance hall, parlor, and dining room are beautiful...just amazing. Our room was huge and beautiful and comfortable. Donn knows the entire history of the mansion and the family who built it, and loves to regale you with the tales of their lives and deaths...fascinating stuff! Bed was extremely comfortable. Breakfast DELICIOUS. Joe is an amazing chef! They can also direct you to the good restaurants in the area. Do NOT pass up this place!


Perfect venue for a small wedding

5 on January 13, 2015

We were married on New Year's Day at Rivercene, and the event couldn't have been more perfect. We reserved the entire B and B. Joe offered tips and suggestions for the location of the ceremony and prepared a sumptuous breakfast afterwards. We couldn't be happier about our experience.


Christmas visit

4.6 on January 12, 2015

Although a little off the highway and off by itself, this is a great B & B. It is worth the stay at Christmas just to see the decorated house. Joe fixed one of the best breakfasts I have had at a B & B. We left with zip lock bags with our cinnamon rolls. Historic Rocheport with its nice restaurants is just a few miles down the road. We may return in the summer to ride the KATY trail which runs across the highway from the Inn.


Christmas Past

5 on December 14, 2014

Wonderfully preserved and furnished 150 year old mansion--decorated beautifully for the season. Enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and engaging hosts--Donn and Joe. The rooms are large and comfortable. Breakfast was outstanding! Combined with "a Christmas Carol" at the Lyceum in Arrow Rock it made for a memorable trip. Definitely will return. Dan and Rita


Excellent Bed & Breakfast!

Rivercene B&B was amazing! The mansion is gorgeous and the owners/hosts are fantastic! I can't wait to visit again! Thanks so much...


Katy Trail ride

5 on October 27, 2014

Stayed at several B&Bs along the trail from Clinton to Machens. This was the best.


great food and innkeepers

4.2 on October 25, 2014

We stayed two nights in Cora's room. Donn and Joe were very accommodating. The breakfast was very good! We had coffee, juice, fresh fruit, homemade pecan rolls and orange rolls along with individual egg and sausage quiche. We had dinner at the grederick hotel, went antquing in Boonville and rode our bikes on the Katy Trail. This is a really neat looking mansion, and will be a showplace when they are finished. The dining room furniture is beautiful! We had anice stay, and enjoyed talking with Donn.
