As its name suggests, Riverview Bed & Breakfast has a beautiful river view. However, I am sure you’ll be surprised if I told you that it is located right in downtown Washington. Just a couple of houses down from Elijah McLean‘s, Riverview B&B is Washington’s best kept secret. When I went there, I felt transported into another world. You will see why.
This is one of the first views that greets you at Riverview. I don’t know if it is the swimming pool, the gorgeous river view, or the overall peacefulness, but I simply loved that place!
Eileen, the owner, showed me around. She said that her and her husband have always wanted a place on the riverfront, and when they found the house they had the idea to turn it into a bed & breakfast. In this way, their children and relatives have a place to stay when they visit, and guests can enjoy the wonderful river view the rest of the time.
This is part of the original stone foundation of the house. The home was built in 1900, and Eileen and her husband restored it in 2010. Riverview Bed & Breakfast combines antique furnishings and modern amenities, a wonderful blend of old and new.
The two bedroom suites can be reserved together or separately. They both have spectacular river views, private baths, Wi-Fi access, cable TV, and private entrances. Discounts are available for booking both rooms and for extended stays.
Breakfast is served at your convenience. Needless to say, the dining room overlooks the river, too. You can’t help but fall in love with that place. Eileen said that their most popular breakfast special is Creme Brulee.
The fully-equipped kitchen is also at your disposal. They have alot of wine glasses 😉
What can be better but to relax on the swing with a glass of wine and enjoy the stunning river view?
Relaxing with a glass of wine and enjoying the stunning river view while soaking in the pool on a hot August evening. The pool adds this wonderful touch that makes you forget you are in downtown Washington…
Meet Mocca. She can be your pet away from home, you can’t help but love her friendly personality.
Eileen, the owner, and Mocca would love to have you as a guest at Riverview Bed & Breakfast. Even if you live in the area, Riverview is a wonderful getaway. We all need a change of scenery every once in a while, and for that you don’t have to go far. Swimming Pool. Gorgeous river view. Hot Breakfast. No need to make your bed. I don’t think I need to say anything more… 😉
