Richard and Ellen made us feel right at home. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious, the Stuffed French Toast Casserole is fantastic. The Garden Room offers a very quite space in which to relax. The mattress was so comfortable we are going to have to upgrade ours at home now. Off the beaten path yet not too far from shopping and tourist attractions. River Rest offers a beautiful view of the lake. The moonrise over the lake each night was breathtaking.

My husband and I recently stayed at River Rest Bed and Breakfast for 3 nights. We had a great stay. The location is lovely; the sunrise over the lake worth seeing. Our room was extremely comfortable and clean. The breakfasts were beyond belief. Thanks to Richard and Ellen for being wonderful hosts ... welcoming and ready to make our stay memorable.

My husband and I recently stayed at River Rest Bed and Breakfast to cellebrate our anniversary and all the special days we will miss throughout his upcoming deployment. Feeling a little worn out, we were also looking for a place to "hide" for the weekend. We couldn't have picked a better place! Richard and Ellen are such thoughtful, warm, and kind hosts! Every detail is thought out, and they are incredibly intentional about making your stay as comfortable and as relaxing as possible. Whether out on the lake, rocking on the porch, or taking a dip in the hot tub, River Rest B&B is the perfect getaway!

Richard and Ellen's house is beautiful and comfortable. I was a little leery about the idea of a bed and breakfast at first since I was concerned about the invasiveness of staying in somebody's house, but I was quickly put at ease. Richard and Ellen were helpful, friendly, immediately putting us at ease. Breakfast was very, very good and Richard recommended a couple restaurants for dinner that were excellent. We stayed in the Garden Room, which I loved. The bed was big and soft, the bathroom has a deep whirlpool tub, and the room has nice french doors opening out onto a patio with seating and a table. Drinks and snacks were provided throughout our stay as well as everything we needed to enjoy ourselves at the lake including beach towels, floats, a paddle boat and lounge chairs. I plan to return the next time I have a good excuse to have a weekend away from home.

My husband and I had a wonderful weekend at River Rest. The rooms were beautiful and the beds were so comfy. The view of Lake Logan Martin from the living room was incredible. Richard makes delicious breakfasts. We had so much fun joining Richard and Ellen and the other guests during our evenings. Listening to everyone's stories and getting to know them was so special. I came for a relaxing weekend and left with several new friends.

We decided to take a short weekend trip for our anniversary. We found the river rest b & b on the internet. It looked and sounded like a nice place to spend a quite weekend. As it turned out it was. The location is nice with a wonderful view of the lake. The accomadations were very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was way beyond my imagination and was delicious. Richard and Ellen were very accomadating and took good care of us. They made us feel right at home.
