For a period of seven years when our children were in college and a few years afterwards, the Archer House River Inn was our favorite place to stay when in town. The cozy rooms and unique decor of each room led to a boutique hotel...More

Room 316 has three openings between the bathroom and the bedroom--openings, no windows, no frosted glass, nothing. There is no privacy between the bedroom and the bathroom and from the shower you feel exposed to the second floor of the library across the street. Front...More

I've stayed there three times, always in the same room overlooking the river - very cozy. AND there's a great Indian restaurant downstairs! Perfect location in the "historic" district - great ambiance an an easy walk to other eateries, shops, etc.

It is quite something to be staying in a historic building - that comes with it's charm, proximity to the river, and the amenities of Division street. However, my experience varies depending on which room I get assigned. For the same price, I have stayed...More

About
Description
The Archer House River Inn occupies more than a central location in Northfield. For generations of guests and locals, it IS Northfield - a geographical and architectural landmark, a host to history for More nearly 140 years, and an exemplar of the town's spirit of hospitality. Built in the French Second Empire style, the four-story red brick building is grand in design, rich in character, and impressive in its amenities - which include two full-service restaurants, a coffee shop, riverside lounge, conference space and more. Yet with just 36 rooms, no two of which are identical, the inn is intimate in scale and unique in feel. The Archer House also boasts the city's best location, straddling the town's main thoroughfare and the Cannon River. Beyond its prominent setting and venerable history, something else makes the Archer House special: a spirit reflected by the staff's pride in upholding a 140-year legacy of caring for guests, and the ownership's loving stewardship of a property that embodies the heart and soul of Northfield.
