The website describes this wonderful historical property with great accuracy. The chance to stay in a historical property that has been maintained with such great passion was a great choice! Despite the gloomy weather, there was so much to explore and enjoy in B&B's. The innkeepers and staff and the entire story of the history of both properties is indeed...

We stayed at Old Rittenhouse Inn as my brother was getting married on their premises. The online booking was very user friendly and their Spring special gave us a nice little savings of the cost of the room per night. Once the time came for our reservation, we had some issues with flights and were not expecting to arrive until...

We really enjoyed our stay here. From the phone call to make the reservation to checking out, it was a great experience. We stayed in Room 11, a two room suite with about 1100 sq. ft. Included in the room was a whirlpool tub, a real fireplace and a deck. The view out the bedroom window of Lake Superior was...

From the moment we stepped across the threshold we were treated as treasured guests by Jennifer who explained the details of our stay and guided us through our room and the home. Our room (South in Le Chateau Boutin a sister property) was charming, warm, decorated in Victorian style to match the home. The bed was comfortable, and the view...

We stayed a weekend in April on the spur of the moment. We were very impressed by the luxurious suite and full breakfast. We also were able to enjoy a romantic dinner at the Landmark Restaurant while our kids stayed in the room and watched movies. We will come back for sure!

We took advantage of a winter special and stayed in the Moroccan Suite, which did not disappoint! All the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Julie & Wendy were great at breakfast and Erin was fabulous helping us check in and giving ideas for off peak season things to do in the area. We played games they...

We loved staying at the Old Rittenhouse Inn. Stayed in room XI. It was so nice. We went during the slow time of the year, so not all the shops were open, but it also meant less people and more quiet. The staff was wonderful and the food was AMAZING!! We are putting this on our list of favorites!

I took my girlfriend to stay at the Rittenhouse for our first B&B experience. The houses (Old Rittenhouse and Le Chateau) were stunning. Incredible, authentic, back-in-time atmosphere and architecture. We loved the in-room bathroom facilities, natural fireplace, and hot tub. We also really liked that there were no modern distractions such as a TV and telephone! Unbelievably, gracious and charming...
