I was looking for a unique place to spend the weekend in Missouri not far from Kansas City. Our trip to Rivercene was the highlight of our trip to Rocheport. My parents and I could not have asked for a better experience. What an unexpected jewel in the middle of Missouri! Hidden back in the farm land, not even a stone throw from the Missouri River. It feels as if you are taking a step back in time, the grounds look untouched and you can almost picture the Rivercene as it stood all those years ago. The mansion as well as it's owner's (Donn and Joseph) are a perfect match. You will feel right at home as you walk through the rooms and hear the wonderful stories of Rivercene's Grand Existance. You will not be dissapointed as you walk the grounds and find your wonderfully furnished room. Some come for the prospect of ghosts and haunting...but if you don't believe any of that you will still love the place for it's history. We stayed on the third floor (used to be the attic) and it was big enough for 4 people. Our breakfast was wonderful Joseph is a fabulous cook! I would recommend coming here to anyone who has a interested in the era of times gone by, or the prospect of a ghostly conversation...I can't wait to come back to their newest events...I hear a Murder is coming to Rivercene...Who Done It is the Question?

We arrived at 3:00 and the owners gave us a tour of their home. The history is very interesting and the breakfast was fantastic. JH

Anyone who loves history will really enjoy staying here. It is just an experience you won't have anywhere else. It really takes you back in time to the 1800's. The breakfast is fantastic and they even do gluten free. I can't say enough about the hospitality of Rivercene.

My wife and I have now stayed at the Rivercene Mansion twice now and I have to say it's now one of our favorite places to go and get away. This place is full of history, it's beautiful and the owners make you feel at home.

Last weekend was the 2nd time my husband and I stayed and it certainly won't be the last! The place is charming with fascinating history and antiques. The rooms are very clean and beautifully decorated, as is the rest of the house. The breakfast each stay was beyond all expectations both in presentation and in taste. Absolutely exquisite! The best part of our stay...the owners Joe and Don. Wonderful hosts! So accommodating and made us feel right at home. Can't wait to go back!

They are so welcoming. Very warm and comfortable surroundings. The breakfast was awesome. I have to say I didn't eat dinner until late Saturday night after eating the wonderful breakfast. The egg soufflé was to die for. This is definitely a place that my husband and I will come back to often. The rooms are awesome. Very comfortably beds. The Slaughter's
