My husband and three family members visited The Riverside Inn for two nights. We had so much fun and were treated so well! The rooms are reminiscent of the hey day of the inn. The common rooms are decorated beautifully with Christmas music playing softly in the background. Breakfast is provided with the room in the breathtaking dining room. Sally... More

We visited here on thanksgiving day for their holiday dinner. The dinner was quite good, they serve turkey, ham, fish and roast beef with a large variety of salads, sides and desserts. The cheese appetizer bar was excellent. The main reason that kept me from giving the restaurant five stars is that some of the sides were overseasoned. The tarragon... More

I truly can’t say enough about The Riverside Inn. I can say what I know I experienced. I had my wedding there October 22 and let me just say it was the second most amazing day of my life (second to the birth of our child).

Excellent feast of soup, salad, bread, whole roast chicken & stuffing and barbeque pork, and dessert all served without eating utensils and served by the theater performers between skits. Lovely grounds to take a walk. This performance has 9 actors and actresses each with wonderful singing voices and many talents. The hotel has many antiques and is a revival of... More

We went to the Sunday performance of the Renaissance Feast at the Riverside Inn this past weekend. What a wonderful show!! The cast is hilarious, the jokes and skits are about an election, the singing is amazing, and the food is delicious. The dialog for the skits is quite timely and a great spoof on the election race we see... More

Beautiful antiques, gracious hosts, good food! Enjoyed the revival of a by-gone era - lovely grounds to walk down to the nearby river, swing on a old-fashioned swing hung from a huge oak tree. Dinner theater was fun- chicken is good choice, big sweet potato, delicious pumpkin pie for dessert during intermission. Charming play "Driving Miss Daisy". Room is small... More

This is such a special place, a trip back to another era. The dining room is the same as it has been for over a century...gorgeous! Food is fantastic. If you desire something more casual, the lounge is fun and bar appetizers are very good (try the homemade provolone encrusted wheel). The staff here are top notch....service is excellent. The...

I've been eating in the Concord Room of the Riverside Inn ever since moving to this general area seven years ago, as it's a pleasant destination for a day trip. I had lunch there today with out-of-town visitors, thinking to show them some local color. (And they loved the authentic Victorian aura of the hotel) But I have been disappointed... More

My daughter and I were treated wonderful from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. Turn of the Century Hotel with the most delightful Pub. We even played gin rummy at a pub table! Extremely reasonable prices and wonderful staff. Will definitely return... Hopefully to see a "sprit" or two!
