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!

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.


awesome building

I should not have taken the 3rd floor room as I was tired from bicycling. The room as clean & nicely decorate. The host was great & very helpful, and the breakfast was delicious, and the other guests company was great.


KATY trail adventure

My son and I enjoyed staying at Rivercene recently. The owners are full of ideas and plans to take the property to new heights. The rooms are very nice and the beds have good mattresses. The breakfast was fabulous - fresh fruit, a neat individual serving souffle, and the cinnamon rolls were outstanding. The house is an historic treasure and a comfortable stay.


Rivercene Mansion weekend

4.2 on September 24, 2014

We met 7 other friends there for a weekend Katy Trail ride. This was our second stay at Rivercene. The mansion is beautiful and steeped in history. Our hosts were efficient and friendly. Breakfast was delicious. We will be back with friends for another trail ride some year.


love this place

I've now stayed at this B&B 2 times so far and look forward to going again. This mansion is lucky to have Joe & Don as the owners -- they really care about its history and have plans to continue to elevate it to its former glory. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, with Victorian style-furniture throughout. Joe & Don were wonderful hosts and fun to get to know. Excellent location, by the way -- just across the river from Boonville and The Isle of Capri Casino, and across the road from the Katy Trail, which is great for bicycling.


Very unique mansion!

I'm glad John is engaged in this "labor of love" by bringing Rivercene back to its glory days! We loved the history of the property. He did a splendid job giving many details of what has been done and his dreams for the future. It was a little challenging finding the property, but well worth the effort!


Great bed and breakfast!!
