A Lovely Stay

4.8 on January 30, 2016

Our stay at Summers Riverview Mansion Bed and Breakfast was everything we could have imagined and hoped for: A lovely room, delicious breakfasts every morning, a surprise evening snack, and the most congenial hospitality from our gracious hosts. We were treated like family. This location is the perfect place to stay while sightseeing in southern Illinois, or across the Ohio River in Paducah, Kentucky.


charming & cozy!

Wedding Party

5 on September 13, 2013

My Parents rented the whole B&B for me and my family/friends the day before my October Wedding. We had an AMAZING time! Henk and Collen are wonderful hosts and even stayed around to enjoy some of the fun with us. They prepared an AMAZING meal for us for breakfast. I was able to get ready here before my Wedding. My husband and I are planning on spending our first anniversary this year at the B&B in the same room I stayed in the night before I married him. I am so excited!! Looking forward to Henk and Collen's great cooking and friendly, cheerful faces on the morning of our 1st anniversary. I HIGHLY reccomend anyone to stay here.


Beautiful & Relaxing

5 on July 22, 2012

The mansion is absolutely stunning, beautifully decorated, and restored to keep with the historic essence of the architecture. The inn keepers are wonderful people who make you feel right at home. Breakfast was spectacular! Truth be told there isn't much to do in the surrounding area, besides a night out at the casino, but we absolutely loved the mansion that we would definitely return for a romantic getaway. One of the best bed and breakfasts we've had the pleasure of staying at.


THE BEST B&B IN SOUTHERN ILLINOIS

5 on July 15, 2012

My stay there was wonderful! Relaxing, safe, and friendly innkeepers. Beautiful gardens and surroundings. Metropolis should be proud to have a place like this. The historical value is very interesting. I do not have to wonder where I am going to stay in the future when I am in the area! You just can't beat the atmosphere. So welcoming and pleasant to the traveler! Author, Maureen Hughes


Wonderful, intimate wedding spot

5 on June 29, 2012

My husband and I had a small family wedding last summer at Summers Riverview Chapel and had a casual but very special brunch reception at the B and B. We stayed the night before leaving for our honeymoon. It was the perfect setting to do an intimate (30 people or so) family wedding. It was very convenient, as the chapel is on site, and the charm of the band b made the reception and photographs much more beautiful than any other spot we could have chosen. The innkeepers made sure we and our guests were taken care of with lots of love and personal service, including a little cake delivered to our room and a special day-after breakfast menu for one of our friends who is allergic to gluten. We wouldn't trade our special day here for the world. If you are looking for a charming, laid back venue for a small wedding that will be special without breaking the bank, try this place! Thanks, Hank and Colleen!


Celebration 2011

5 on April 30, 2012

We come to Metropolis every year for the Superman Celebration. We decided to stay at the Summers Riverview Mansion Bed and Breakfast. What an excellent choice!!! Henk and Colleen are the nicest people we have ever met. Hot breakfast, snacks and surprises in your room. I felt like I was at home. Henk gave us a tour of the grounds and a little history of the place. I really enjoyed talking to them, it was like family. I have suggested to everyone I know about this secret little place in Metropolis, Illinois..A place like home! Can't wait to see you this summer.... Rick and Crystal Vandiver

Wonderful Weekend!

5 on June 06, 2011

When we first arrived we were greeted by wonderful inn keepers Colleen and Henk and given a tour of the mansion...the pictures truly don't do this place justice...it was gorgeous. We spent one night in the sweet dreams suite, the room was very clean and the beds were very cozy and intimate. Breakfast the next morning was so much more than we had ever expected, it was delicious. We will be back!

About the innkeepers

We love history and old houses. As former educators we also love sharing. Running a Bed and Breakfast in a historic home gives us the best of both worlds. Our grand mansion has a wonderful history and we love to spoil our guests with southern Illinois hospitality. Did we mention that Metropolis is recognized by DC Comics as the official home of Superman?
