We stayed in the Agatha Christie suite on a Friday night to celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary. The main house is absolutely beautiful! We were greeted by a friendly young woman who toured us around, pointing out the 2 dining rooms where breakfast would be served in the morning, various places to lounge and relax, the "honor system" wine/champagne bar...

My husband and I received a gift card to the Rivertown Inn, so we went leaving our 2 year old and 4 month child with the grandparents. This was our first time away (without BOTH kids) and it was just what we needed. Incredibly romantic, fabulous service, and impeccable food. It is a bit pricy, but well worth it. We...

My husband and I spent one night at the Rivertown Inn to celebrate his birthday and get away for the weekend. What a wonderful experience! The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Our stay here was wonderful. We were met at the door and the four course breakfast was unbeatable. Room was gorgeous. Left relaxed and would definitely go there again. We stayed in the Alfred Tennyson suite- it exceeded expectations.

My wife & I recently celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at the Rivertown Inn. We had a wonderful time. The property is very nice, our room was great (Browning Suite) and Chef Ray's breakfast was outstanding. In addition, we signed up for the dinner and wine pairing special at Domacin which was also very good. We would recommend both!
