“This place is on our "must return soon" list”
Reviewed 28 May 2011

We enjoyed our weekend stay at the River House Inn, and we plan to return soon. There were lots of extra touches - a refrigerator outside our room stocked with soft drinks, wine laid out on the sideboard at happy hour, and fabulous breakfasts with lots of choices. We also loved it that we were welcome in the kitchen, which was large and roomy and a focal point for chatting. There was also a fabulous back lawn sloping down to the Pocomoke River, and an inviting canoe sitting on the shore. The one minor drawback was that the rooms in this Victorian house were not at all soundproof, but for those really sensitive to noise, there are two lovely cottages on the property as well. All in all, a very memorable, relaxing stay.

The Inn itself is a beautiful and stately Victorian with fine period furnishings. In addition to guest rooms in the main house, there are cozy units in several other buildings leading down the lawn to the shore of the Pokamoke River. The property also has a large heated pool and adjoining, well stocked, covered outdoor facility with the equipment for al fresco dining. The owners, Dwayne and Rick, are warm, caring and knowledgeable hosts. Snow Hill is a small charming village with a number of interesting shops and a few restaurants, one of which is reported to be excellent. Unfortunately, each of the three time that we have been there for one night's stay, that establishment happened to be closed. This inn is an excellent spot for anyone vacationing on Delmarva and for East Coast travellers north and south along the highways of the Eastern Shore.

Room Tip: Ask to stay in one of the units near the river.

We walked to rent a canoe, dropped it off in the back of the cottage property, they picked it up in the morning! The Inn Keepers were bend over backwards amazing! OMG the best thing ever!!!! The waffles at breakfast....without question worth the stay alone!!! AAAA+++++ I loved it can't wait to go back!!!

The River House Inn is a special bed and breakfast located in Snow Hill, Maryland. This B&B is a little piece of heaven on earth. Dwayne and Rick are the new owners of this fine establishment and have wonderful plans for the future. I am so excited to be going back in July to see them again. The staff at the Inn is wonderful! The whole experience is comfortable, relaxing, and purely bliss! The breakfast are phenominal, especially their signature waffles!

If you have a dog- this is the place to stay! My dog was treated like royalty and enjoyed all the amentites of the bed and breakfast. This is truely a wonderful place to take your beloved pet.

I was having such a wonderful time that I decided to extend my stay! I have also already booked a room in July 2011 for a weekend.

Room Tip: Yacht Club Room - Pet friendly & a great view!

A comfortable, well appointed Victorian B&B in a charming historic town. Delicious breakfasts, friendly but unobtrusive hosts, very comfortable beds, wonderful grounds next to the river but just steps away from the center of town. The cottages offer a nice option to the main house. Snow Hill is close to Assateague and ocean beaches, but a much more tranquil place to stay.

The new owners of the inn, Rick Lesser and Dwayne Mease are absolutely delightful and could not do enough for us. From the moment we arrived, I felt like we were long lost cousins who fell into our Grandmother's house. They offered us wine and popcorn and we went down the long lawn to the beautiful river. The place was just so relaxing. They have been doing some restoring and cleaning and what also amazed me was how quiet the house is, especially at night. You can't even hear anyone else coming in from your room. This is a Civil War era house that has had some updating, but it is still reminiscent of the grand homes of the era. The kitchen is the central gathering place and there is always something interesting going on. I was there for a paint out with other artists, and Dwayne provided me with a place to frame and mount my paintings. We could walk anywhere in town and there was a canoe and kayak rental shop next door and you can kayak right from the river's edge on the inn property. We totally enjoyed the breakfasts which were cooked to order and we could help ourselves to coffee or tea any time of day. We hope to be back again soon. Another plus is the proximity to the bay and the Assateague National Seashore area. Highly recommend.

The main house was grand! Our cottage was like staying at home. Very spacious. The back yard had great views of the river and was very peaceful walking by the huge trees and flower beads. The pool area was great that had a kazibo that hah a fire place TV and bar and grill area. Dwayne was a great cook and Rick a great entertainer as well as Dwayne!
Fun place to stay! Hope to return there soon!
