Wonderful Stay!

4.6 on November 11, 2014

We noticed the River View Inn while visiting family in Sunbury last year, and made plans to stay there on our next visit to PA. Luckily, we were able to get the Overlook Room, which has an amazing view of the Susquehanna River! The room itself was comfortable and elegant. Our hosts, Linda and Gary were delightful to visit with, and provided a relaxing stay for us. Going back next year when we make our annual trip to PA! Betty and Bill


A wonderful experience.

It was a perfect place to spend the evening of the 4th of July, staying in the Overlook Room with panoramic views of the Susquehanna River and watching the various firework celebrations. Linda could not have been more helpful and we also talked with Gary the next morning.


Very nice place to stay

4.6 on June 26, 2014

we were looking for a place to stay close to where a concert was being held at the spyglass winery. I hadn't heard of this spot, but we decided to try it out. We got in and out before the show, then came back late. We knew we were staying in the only room without a toilet, but did have sink and shower in room. We slept in and didn't get to partake in the breakfast that smelled wonderful as we left, but I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if needed. While I didn't get to meet the owners other than a quick hello, the communication was good and I think they have a nice setup here.


Outstanding 5 night stay

5 on June 16, 2014

We had a wonderful 5 night stay. The view from our room was amazing. The b&b is in a great location. The owners were very friendly and made beautiful fresh food. We enjoyed getting to know the other guests and would gladly come back to stay again. They even bought my husband a special birthday cupcake. What is there not to love!?!


Very nice

Very pleasant Inn with especially nice innkeepers that allowed us to stay when they had a last-minute cancellation that made a room available as we checked at 10:00 pm when traveling thru the Sunbury area. We checked-in at 10:30 and had a wonderful though brief stay.


Lovely B&B

The hosts were warm, friendly, charming, helpful and great conversationalists!!! We really enjoyed talking to them and they went out of their way to accommodate my diet needs. We recommend this B & B for a great weekend stay!!! The house is decorated so beautifully- we wanted to take some of the antiques home!!! The river view was beautiful! We really relaxed here Doree & Tom Valenza


River View Inn B&B

4.4 on May 07, 2014

We stayed at the River View Inn following a mini wine tour at several local wineries. The room and common areas were very clean and well maintained. The inn is decorated true to Victorian style and is beautifully done. When we arrived there was fresh coffee and tea as well as muffins biscotti, etc. in the sitting room area and candies throughout the home, all were routinely refilled. We didn't have to ask for a thing as all was taken care of. Breakfast was delicious and the presentation was wonderful!! We were very happy with our stay and would absolutely recommend this B&B!


A lovely stay
