We stayed in the Agatha Christie suite which was amazingly decorated with a huge whirlpool and separate bathroom with huge shower. The evening snacks and wine were delicious and breakfast was a gourmet feast. The staff is friendly. A lot of attention went into every aspect--the home, grounds, food. Great place to stay!

Very cozy. But the breakfast.....oh man....the breakfast I need to google some better words for 'amazing, delicious, beautiful' it was hands down the absolute best breakfast I've...

If you haven't been to the Rivertown Inn, you need to stay there. My husband and I have stayed there multiple times for numerous occasions and we have never been disappointed. We've been able to try out the Longfellow Suite and the Jane Austen Suite. So far the Jane Austen is the favorite. We needed to check in early one...

Not much more to say than what has already been said. Rivertown Inn has nicely decorated theme suites. My wife and I stayed in the Agatha Christe suite. We thoroughly enjoyed the accommodations, the social hour, the breakfast and the company. We will be coming back.
