awesome building

4.4 on October 20, 2014

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!!

Don and Joe provided wonderful service and made us feel right at home. The breakfast was wonderful. Will come back again.

Great place to stay

4.8 on September 05, 2014

The mansion is exactly as described in their web site. We stayed on the 3rd floor and even though the last flight of stairs was steep there weren't too many of them. Breakfast each morning was excellent, all three mornings there was fresh fruit and a home cooked entree. The owners are excellent hosts, and Donn is very knowledgeable about the history of the house and the area. We rode the Katy trail one day of of our stay. The trail is very close to Rivercene. Definitely recommend.

Best Birthday weekend EVER!!!!

We recently spent my birthday weekend at Rivercene Mansion. Don and Joe made us feel like we were at home. The house is amazing and one of the most comfortable places we have ever stayed at. The food was excellent !! We liked it so much, we are going back during the Christmas season. Really looking forward to our next visit. Think we have found our weekend "Get away". Thanks guys!!

A bit on the hot side!

3.6 on August 27, 2014

Stayed 2 nights in the upstairs 3rd floor bedroom. Nicely appointed. When we arrived at 9pm the room was very hot. It's August in Missouri and that's normal. I personally would have prepared the room by running the window AC unit in anticipation of guest arrival. We were unable to sleep comfortably until about 3am. Thankfully, the following evening was better. The AC unit worked all day to keep the room bearable. Part of the problem was the ac unit was old and ineffective. It's a very neat old mansion with an interesting history. Like many properties of this kind the owners are working to make their vision a reality. It is a work in progress. They have done a great job thus far and the discomfort we experienced was relatively minor. I would go back, probably when the weather is cooler!

Rivercene Mansion A beautiful & fun B & B

5 on August 19, 2014

My husband & I stayed on a Friday night before we started on our Katy Trail bike adventure. When arriving the mansion looked a little erie on the outside but oh my, when inside it is beautiful! The owners were very gracious settling us in & giving dinner ideas in town. We stayed in Cora's room, which was super clean & beautiful. The bed was so very comfortable & we had the most soft towels I have ever used. They supplied soap & shampoo, which was nice when trying to pack light on a bike trip. Breakfast was served at the time we asked for it and it was not only appealing to the eye.... It was delicious! It was a great way to start our bike adventure. We were celebrating our 38th anniversary, riding our bikes 38 miles Saturday & 38 miles back on Sunday. The whole weekend was perfect from the start staying at Rivercene. So much history to Rivercene, & the owners were so informative along with fun to listen to! We will be back, hopefully with a bunch of friends to rent all the rooms for a weekend! Our stay was August 2014
