Down home friendliness

You just can't help but feel at home at Thai bed and breakfast. The room was much bigger than I thought it would be and the shower was like a spa! The owners go out of their way to help you or just sit and chat with you. Close to everything and a very short walk to the river and lighthouse. Breakfast was wonderful. Make sure you go on carriage ride! Just wonderful!


Great place!

My husband and I stayed here for our 32cnd wedding anniversary and we were very pleased. Lori and William went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and to help us as much as they could. All the rooms were large and spacious and we were extremely pleased with our room. You cannot go wrong in any room. The shower was like a spa and I loved it. The breakfasts were wonderful and prepared at the time you arrived in the dining room. Lori insisted that if we needed anything to let her know! We stayed 2 nights and both days Lori sent us off with home baked goodies! Lori even took us on a little tour in the Cinderella carriage! We have stayed in many bed and breakfasts and this was one of the top stays!


Such a great place to stay

My sisters and I went to the nearby quilt show. Fortunately we couldn't find a hotel room and "ended up" Summers Riverview Bed and Breakfast. We had such an enjoyable stay. William & Laurie are so welcoming and want you to relax in the home like it is your own. They serve fabulous breakfasts -- nothing skimpy about the amount they serve you. It's within walking distance to Harrah's if you want some night life. If you are like us, we enjoyed sitting on the front porch in the evening watching the world go by.


Top notch experience

Very comfortable, relaxed ... the essence of top notch service, surroundings and hospitality. Very interesting venue in prime location. The breakfast - made to order - was spectacularly good!


So Relaxed

My Fiancé and I had the extreme pleasure of staying at this wonderful bed and breakfast at this historic and beautiful mansion! Lori and William provided the perfect balance between excellent care, outstanding hospitality, and also privacy and relaxation! Our room was furnished beautifully and added to the historic feeling of this lovely place! Our breakfast was so very delicious and made to our request! We look forward to staying at this bed and breakfast again every time we travel through that area! So content and relaxed!

A Lovely Stay

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.

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?
