A great place to go

We have been going to River House Inn for 3 yrs now with our two grandchildren and our dog. The room we were in was clean and met our needs. The breakfast was outstanding. It is only 35 mins from Ocean City. The pool area is kept clean and comfortable. Rick and Dwayne make you feel at home. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a comfortable place to stay.


Great place for a quiet getaway

Well maintained historic inn located in Snow Hill, Maryland. Very friendly hosts, a swimming pool, and exceptional breakfasts. Well worth a return visit.


My wife loved it

Our host was very personable and accommodating. The rooms were what you would expect from an old house. The rooms were very nicely decorated and rustic in the 'Eastern Shore' style. The pictures on the website accurately conveyed what we experienced. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend the River House Inn.


Very nice and very friendly.

The room is huge, the bed is incredibly comfortable and the owners are very friendly and welcoming. My only issue was a couple of large spiderwebs that should probably have been removed, but other than that the place was clean and I was happy with my stay.


OUTSTANDING !!!!!

I have been to many Bed and Breakfasts all over the world and this one is rated with my favorite. The innkeepers are extrememly professional and the entire inn is very warm and welcoming. It sits on a gorgeous river and there are many activities available. We will be returning again and again. Thank you for many our holiday even brighter .....


Great place

Room was very clean and very large. Very comfortable bed. Great view of the river. The owners go out of their way to accommodate you even for the small things - brought cream to my room for coffee.


Excellent B&B on the Eastern Shore!

4.8 on November 06, 2016

Excellent location, amenities, and service only 30 minutes from Ocean City and Assateague Island. Rick and Dwayne were excellent hosts. The breakfast is unlike any other B&B in which we've stayed. It's essentially order what you want every morning. The waffles are famous. I waited until the last day to try them since they're quite addicting and not diet food! Rick is a great cook and conversationalist. We didn't get out of there until 11:00 everyday just chatting away! Right out the back entrance is the Pocomoke River. We went on the pontoon river cruise with the other couple in the Inn. The portion of the river we explored is protected by a draw bridge which opens rarely and only on request. We saw only one other boat the entire trip. Ask Capt Jerry to show you the "wedding tree"! We stayed in the East Room. Spacious and comfortable with two chairs so you don't have to lay in bed to watch TV or read. This room faces the street which seems to be the main drag through town. If you're there on a weekday, rush hour starts at 7:00. The library and game closet are well stocked. The Furnace Town just five minutes north of Snow Hill is a diamond in the rough. There were two volunteers there that day, a blacksmith and gardener. Both could talk your head off if you let them! Well worth the time.
