My husband and I stayed at the Riverbend Inn for one night on October 1, 2011 for our anniversary.
This was a package deal we purchased that included one night's accomodation, a free wine tasting at the bar, breakfast for two and a tour of the Reif Estate Winery.
When we arrived and checked in we found out that our room had been upgraded to a King Suite which was a nice surprise!
The room itself was abolutely georgous with a King Size bed, luxurious linens with lots of pillows and a spacious living room area with a pull out couch.
The bathroom was spacious and clean and the Nutrogena toiletries provided were lovely.
The only downside to the room is that there were only about 6 grainy channels received on the TV. Given the high price of the rooms, we expected a much better selection.
The grounds and gardens are beautiful, unfortunately it was rainy and cold during our stay so we didn't really get to explore.
We tried to book dinner reservations the night of our stay, however, since the restaurant only holds about 35-40 people, they were completely booked up. Reservations are best made well in advance.
Breakfast was delicious and served in the cozy dining room overlooking the vineyards.
Overall we enjoyed our stay, however we felt that the hotel was overpriced and would not return to pay full price. I think we could find a lot better value for the money spent.
