We landed at the River Bend Lodge under unfortunate circumstances--a car wreck on icy roads in nearby Townshend, VT--but the great accommodations and unbelievable kindness of Neil and Melissa made a bad situation much better. The room was reasonably priced, clean, and very spacious, with a really comfortable bed and a flat screen TV. But the real bonus of staying...

My first stay with River Bend Lodge was a couple of years ago. At that time the place was serviceable, but nothing to "write home about." The new management is a breath of fresh air. They are warm and welcoming. The rooms are clean and warm and the new beds are very comfortable. The bathrooms are clean with great water...

The River Bend Lodge is a warm, welcoming place for family and friends to gather. The accommodations are spacious and the bathrooms are immaculate. I especially like that the grounds are large enough to be able to take long walks. Neil and Melissa go above and beyond their "job" of being hosts, making you feel like family.

We stayed at the River Bend for a wedding - in fact, every room in the place was booked for the out of town wedding guests. Neil and Melissa were extremely accommodating and pleasant hosts. There was a mistake in our reservation and we weren't booked for the second night - they insisted on making up one of the apartments...

We had a fantastic experience here. My Great Aunt was getting married and the entire place was full of our family and his. The rooms were nice (and extremely reasonable!), the breakfast was fantastic (eggs, bagels, french toast, yogurt, muffins, etc..), the view was phenominal and the managers were delightful. The bar and grill next door (Bootsie's Bar and Grille)...

Was recommend by family members to stay here. My husband and I visited Memorial Day weekend and found the rooms to be clean and comfortable. The continental breakfast was great, plenty to choose from and I found it to be a quiet, friendly atmosphere in a beautiful area of Vermont. The new managers are super friendly and very accommodating. They...

Have stayed in the past and stayed again last weekend. Rooms were updated (slightly) in the last couple of years. Bathroom was much newer and pretty clean. Bed very uncomfortable. Flat screen TV was nice. Decent rooms with mini-fridge and A/C but both were unplugged so room was pretty hot upon arrival. Supposedly there is wi-fi but we never were...

We have spent many an evening there in the past but not in the past two or three years. Just spent the night under new management and it was horrible! There was no curtain or blind in the bath room window. The lady who worked up front was never there, always busy watching her newborn baby which I can understand,...
