Respite Along the Sandusky River

3.8 on October 21, 2013

I have family in the area and wanted something different than hotel living for a week meant for family visits as well as vacationing adventures in Ohio. We found The Rivers Edge and were pleased by the welcome (lost but found with Mary Lee's help) arriving early evening. Loved the history and architecture of the home and riverfront views, Mary Lee's enthusiasm and geniune care at making sure we were comfortable. We recommend this establishment for individuals looking to relax at the end of a long day and for those who appreciate a healthy and delicious start to their day! Thank you Vadalabene's for your hospitality. JM, JE Roberts.

Peaceful with Accommodating Owners

Thank you for this beautiful peaceful retreat! I love that this is here in Northwest Ohio. We arrived late and it was pitch black. As we stepped out of the car we were greeted by the sound of rushing water! It was not only beautiful and captivating during the day, but the sound was such a refreshing background to our retreat. The owners were accommodating and friendly. The breakfast was fantastic and beautifully arranged (I was in heaven with so much fresh fruit). Having a space to ourselves was also lovely. I look forward to coming back.

That was amazing!

We came to Tiffin to visit our friends and stayed that gorgeous suite for two days. We were amazed. The suites was like a palace near the river. Mary Lee who is the owner of the property was very welcoming and friendly. The breakfast was so delicious, so that would be a good reason by itself to re-visit that nice place..I wish we would have more couple days and I would be able to enjoy the bookshelf. Thanks Mary Lee for making our stay memorable. Demet&Arcan- Turkey

An Amazing Getaway! What a Blessing on the River.

This was our first utilization of a bed and breakfast. We were in Tiffin, OH for a wedding. Marty does a wonderful job of maintaining the property. Mary Lee is not only an interior decorator but a chef as well. The breakfast looks so incredible that my husband took pictures of it! Delicious only begins to describe how it tastes. Mary Lee was very welcoming of my guests who came to the property. They too were VERY impressed. Our time here was peaceful and restful. Marty and Mary Lee are a wonderful couple who demonstrate beautiful partnership and elegance. We will be going back soon.

The only place to stay in Tiffin, OH.

July 2013 This was the very best B&B we have ever stayed at. Our girls thoroughly enjoyed the hammock, river and most importantly the fairy cottage. A real life cottage on the water's edge filled with dolls and beautiful little girl furniture, surrounded by trees and fireflies. Breakfast was truly a treat with the best breads and muffins- homemade!!! We were in the 2 bedroom suite and had PLENTY of space and a fantastic view of the river...we highly recommend this unit. Tiffin was an enjoyable town to roam about in as well as the museums. Mary Lee and Marty are a delightful couple. Our 7 day stay exceeded our expectations.

Simply Outstanding!

My daughter and I had the privilege of staying with MaryLee and Marty in their beautiful home. We arrived very late in the evening and they took us in like we were long lost family and treated us like we were royalty. I wanting to make my daughter's 16th Birthday special (after spending a full day of travel), so MaryLee recommended a local bakery for a special treat and with her assistance I was able to order 2 beautifully decorated and delicious cupcakes and she made the trip to pick them up and had them in our room, beautifully displayed for her when we arrived. You just don't receive that level of warmth, graciousness and customer service from anyone, anymore. I can't say enough great things about our stay with them.

Relaxing Get-Away

5 on May 22, 2013

My husband and I spent a relaxing and comfortable night at The Rivers' Edge Executive Suites. We wanted to get away for a mini-vacation in the Tiffin area where we went to college and found this delightful bed and breakfast. Mary Lee and Marty were great hosts - willing to talk with us about the history of their home and things to do in the Tiffin area but also giving us our space. They have places to sit on the edge of the river to see and hear the river and just watch nature. We stayed in the one-bedroom suite where everything was beautifully decorated and had all the conveniences. We fit in all our planned activities in 24 hours: hike and bike at the Schekelhoff Nature Preserve Park (directly across the river from the B&B); visit the TU campus; eat at the Pioneer Mill; and play disc golf at the Hedges-Boyer Park. We would definitely stay here again!

Perfect Getaway!

I was looking for a place to go for a weekend in February with my sweetheart, where we could just relax, spend time together, and take a break from our busy careers. I did not want to go to a hotel, which seemed so impersonal. The Rivers Edge was perfect. We booked the one bedroom suite, but it was more like an apartment! We had a living room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. We felt so relaxed and at home, with a place to prepare our own light meals if we didn't want to go out. Mary Lee was a wonderful host, attending to our every need, yet staying in the background. We liked that this was a B&B but we didn't feel compelled to go mingle with the other guests/host or have a community breakfast. In fact, Mary Lee doesn't do a community breakfast, but instead brought the most scrumptious fruit and breakfast cakes up to our room each morning and left it by the door. Perfect!

A Very Nice Place

We just stayed overnight in a 2 bedroom suite for my son's visit to Heidleberg University. First of all Mary was super friendly and provided a warm welcome. The suite was roomy, convenient and comfortable. It was nicely decorated befitting of the very historic structure. Lots of character to the place. Breakfast was a terrific cinnamon roll creation and tasty fresh fruit. The place is very close to the college and right on the river. It has to be very pretty in the summer.

Delightful stay (Aug 2012)
