The Riverview Mansion Hotel has been resurrected! A Gem! It boasts the finest lodging in Southern Illinois and features an on-site restaurant with the best local beer and wine selection around. Set against the backdrop of the Ohio River, this fabulous testament to the riverboat era  was built in the 1890s.  "The Mansion" is packed with authentic turn of the century architectural details, eccentric curiosities and rambunctious spirits. 


Welcome to the grand Riverview Mansion Hotel. Originally constructed as a private home, it has been a hotel since the mid 1920's. More rooms are being thoughtfully renovated and the hotel is being carefully maintained and updated.


Here at the Mansion we pride ourselves on our hospitality and personal attention. This very unique, boutique hotel  will awe you with its amazing vibe, architecture and suites.  It is not a B&B and certainly not a chain. We are the original 'mom 'n pop' small town business. Situated perfectly to enjoy the Shawnee National Forest, the Ohio River and the Garden of the Gods, you will love the 'trip back in time.  You will also enjoy the hotel's Levee Lounge, famous for its selection of local craft beers and wines. And after a long day of hiking, you'll appreciate the convenience of our on-site restaurant.  

    Hope to see you soon!
