What a wonderful little place! I visited almost a year ago with my (now) fiancee and her parents. We had a blast hanging out on the back porch and watching the river traffic go by. The rooms were big and very nice. I think that the basement room (where I stayed) is probably the loudest when the trains come by...

We stopped here during our trip to St. Louis from Pittsburgh. We arrived around 5:30pm. The owners came over from the house next door where they live. We were warmly greeted and they showed us around the property. The house is immaculate to say the least. A big comfy bed and we also had a rollaway bed for a child...

I had an outstanding stay at this very well maintained B&B right on the banks of the Ohio River, in Franklin Furnace, Ohio. I stayed in the CreekView room and loved sitting on the balcony for hours watching boats and barges cruise along the historic Ohio River, as well as the occasional train on the Kentucky side of the River....

We know that we responded to you via email after your visit, but we wanted to thank you again for your great review and photo spread...and youtube video. Our words from a previous email are still valid, "We hope that you’re getting some rest from your travels…or, maybe, the travel energizes you. Either way, thanks again for your kind words."

The Inn is a stately two story Inn with a large deck overlooking the Ohio river. The word 'scenic' does not begin to do justice to the place. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, and spotless. The homemade, cooked from scratch breakfasts are wonderful. I felt relaxed the moment I stepped foot on the grounds. I'd love to go back. Hope...

My wife and I were due in Ohio from the UK to settle our son into a local university. Having found the RiverView on the Internet we booked immediately and would recommend it to anyone for a short break, business trip or even an extended stay. The facilities and location were outstanding, matched by the welcome given by George and...

I am neither a reviewer nor a Bed and Breakfast fan. My travel preference would be a suite at a modern hotel in an urban area. When travelling to Southern Ohio to visit family the options are limited. The Riverview Inn is one of my favorite places to stay. The Inn is comfortable, spacious, and clean. Ask for the river...

We had to make an urgent unplanned trip to Southern Ohio. Having grown up in this region, I was well aware of the lack of quality lodging. I did a quick Google search and found this B&B which I had not previously known about. I called and was able to book two rooms on last minute notice on a holiday...

My husband and I decided to surprise our granddaughter who was performing for the first time in a praise and worship band in Portsmouth.

It was important to find the perfect place for our vacation to Southern Ohio. We'd had a stressful past year and this short trip needed to perform miracles to restore us.

I've finally found TripAdvisor and signed up. We've had lots of rain here and we're still flooded on the lower level of our yard. We've had a lot of clean up to do! Thank you for your wonderful review. You do have a way with words. Congrats again of being published. George
