Restored our faith in bed and breakfasts

We found the Riverbend Inn online and it exceeded our expectations. It is an oasis of delicious food, soothing, beautifully decorated rooms and common areas, lush green and flowering plants outside, all to the background babble of the Chocorua River. Craig Cox and Jerry Weiss answer any questions you might have about the area, the inn furnishings, the music played, and the food, and are otherwise unobtrusive. We look forward to returning.

Nice surprise

Came up for wedding

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Riverbend Inn while we were attending a wedding in the area. When we checked in we were given a room upgrade, yay! Although from what I saw, all the rooms were wonderful. The Inn was still beautifully decorated for the holidays and the food was fabulous. If I'm ever in the area again I will definitely stay at the Riverbend!

WInter get away

A wonderful weekend at Riverbend. The snow was so beautiful on the river and property. Outstanding breakfasts and fabulous holiday decorations.

Craig and Jerry are the best. We have been going to Riverbend for the past 10 years consecutively, stayed there 12 times . We love it so much. It is so beautiful to watch the river cascade down a mountain. We have been there every season, and we always have had a good time. The best is the 'Cookie Tour' during the winter, and when it snows, it is like a winter wonderland. I would recommend Riverbend hands down. It is a great place for a romantic getaway. Thanks Alicia & Tommy Gannon

Amazing and hope to return!

Our stay here was wonderful! It was so relaxing with the soft jazz music in the background. Our 3 course breakfast was divine! We took advantage of eating outside so that we could enjoy the sounds of the river. We were in the area for leaf peeping but would have been fine to spend the entire time at the inn. So glad I found this on the internet. Mary
