It was very hard to leave and we will definitely be back. Thank you again for your gracious hospitality and making us feel welcome! Beautiful!!!!!!!!!" - T.J. Baker

"My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and loved it! This place is the perfect getaway. Open spaces, beautiful rooms, good food, great wine, full of character, right on the river ... this hotel is magnificent - everything in their description and more! I cannot wait to go back sometime and spend more time there! Staying at the Riverview Mansion will definitely become a family tradition." Annie E.





We decided to stay at the Riverview Mansion over the past couple of days and it was awesome! It is so cool looking on the outside, but the inside is absolutely amazing! We had the pleasure of staying in the Gilbert Room and we loved the way it was decorated. The bed was very comfortable as well. The best part of the mansion was the selection of wine which consisted of several local wineries as well as many other types of wine. The owners were so friendly and helpful on wine and beer selections as well as nearby hiking! Thanks again for a very enjoyable few days and we will be back at some point in the near future! - J.M.


"The hotel was elegant eclectic and had a very nice atmosphere. The bar was well stocked with many tasting options. The dinner, breakfast, and appetizers were tasty. The owners were friendly and inviting. On many occasions they will have local and regional talent performing to add even more atmosphere. I recommend the Riverview Mansion for a well priced get away, you will get a lot of bang for your buck here." - E.M. Kopp


“Wonderful experience! My wife and I stayed at the Riverview for a long weekend. The mansion is quirky and laid back, and Tony and Beth are warm and welcoming hosts. Our accommodations were extremely comfortable, and provided the perfect getaway. The Levee Lounge is a great place to relax and unwind--with a beer and wine selection that's beyond anything I've seen anywhere else. The mansion was conveniently located for us to explore Garden of the Gods and Rim Rock. We also drove into Paducah to explore their arts district and hit their Farmers Market. Overall, we just really loved the warm and laid-back "vibe" of the mansion and its hosts. As a same-sex couple visiting Southern Illinois, we felt very comfortable We'll definitely look forward to our next visit!” - Janae

"Riverview Mansion offers a wealth of historic architecture, well preserved....but there is nothing that compares to the warm welcome of the couple who owns & operates this cozy get-away!! Plenty of atmosphere, eclectic local beverage selection and friendly service to keep you coming back! Many laughs and great conversations to be had!!" - Anon.
