We booked in good faith based on the website pictures and descriptions. What we found was a run down house with musty smelling rooms, no water pressure or hot water in the bathroom, a filthy (COLD) hot tub that wasn't working properly, a pool with so many leaves on top that we would have had to clean it to swim...

We were staying here for one night as part of a planned trip across Ontario, and wish we'd been able to stay longer. The room was beautiful (and quirky), the breakfast was fantastic, the atmosphere was relaxing, and Cathy couldn't have been a better host. Also, great pets who have no trouble being friendly to strangers (if you're not a... More

My wife and I decided to have a short break to celebrate her birthday and Paris seemed an obvious place as we were there 25 years ago, albeit that was France and this is Ontario! None the worse for that as we thoroughly enjoyed the trip and our stay at River Ridge made it for us. The farm setting was... More

I felt that this was the perfect place for our visit home in paris ontario. Cathy couldn't have been more accommodating. We were there for family, and our plans had changed 2 or 3 times.

In all my travels I have always taken it for granted that anyplace that we reserved would honor that reservation. Then I tried to book a suite here.

We had a fantastic time with Cathy at the River Ridge Bed and Breakfast.

We booked at the River Ridge B&B for a change of pace after spending time at Niagara Falls. It was a lovely change of pace. The town of Paris is small but quaint with good restaurants.

The first thing to share in this response is that the town of Paris is small but it's very vibrant and has lots of good restaurants. It has been named the prettiest town in Canada.

Cathy and Paul have put a lot of love and hard work into renovating and redecorating this century home in the countryside, backing onto the Grand River just north of Paris, Ontario.

Charming, quaint farmhouse in the countryside. Very comfortable nicely appointed room (Master's Den) on main floor with private access to pool and hot tub.The delicious raspberry pancakes and bacon were even more wonderful while watching beautiful horses from the dining room.

These charming guests, confident enough to provide their names helps us know exactly who they are. The fact that this particular guest has the same first name as my grandfather, makes him particularly remembered fondly by me.
