Our hosts were very informative and helpful to us. Their stories and information about the history of the Mansion are very impressive. The Mansion is very close to the Katy Trail (which is why I booked it) and worked great for our stay. They have Wi-Fi and we stayed so busy that we didn't even miss not having TV for 3 days. The breakfasts were delicious and way too much food! We will definitely stay again if we are in the area.

My wife and I went here for Valentine's day weekend. We loved the room, the history, the food, and the attentive hosts. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a chance to get away.

Rivercene Mansion had lots of interesting decor to look at on the main level. We also enjoyed the history of the house and its inhabitants from Donn. And Joe fixed a delicious breakfast!

My husband and I and a friend truly enjoyed our recent stay at the Rivercene Mansion. The hosts were gracious and helpful, and we felt so welcomed. They are working hard to restore this amazing historic property, and it was exciting to learn about their plans for the future. I especially enjoyed the binder they had with information on the house and the family that built it. As my husband noted, there is so much history in this area that people know so little about, but should! The two breakfasts we had were delicious, and it was so relaxing to go downstairs early in the morning and grab a cup of coffee to start the morning.

I enjoyed my stay at Rivercene because it was very peaceful and quiet. The people who ran it, plus the guests were very nice people. The room was beautiful and very relaxing. The breakfast, the only semi negative comment I have about that is, it seemed to be rather simple compared to other B & B's. I would recommend Rivercene to anyone who just wanted to step back in time and have a peaceful getaway.

Wow, this place was amazing. It was truly like being in another era or in a movie setting, but with most of the conveniences of modern life. The only problem was the shower; someone started taking a shower when I was in mine and that affected my hot water. (We stayed on the 3rd floor if that makes a difference) But the experience was amazing and the food was scrumptious! Also, one of the owners was telling fascinating stories about the family and their guests. He should write a historical novel! We highly recommend Rivercene!
