“Wonderful stay for family reunion”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

My father is from Snow Hill, Maryland, so I grew up knowing and loving Snow Hill, Maryland, especially because of my grandparents. Their farm, church and tight-knit community made Snow Hill also like my home. It had been years since I had been back; the River House Inn made this the sweetest homecoming last month. In town for a family reunion, my parents, my family, my brother's family and my uncle's family all gathered here after the holidays to join other family who live nearby. We stayed in one of the cottages and in the main house and couldn't have been happier. The cottage felt comfortable and easily fitted a large bunch of us. I especially loved the upstairs bathroom. Everything was clean, comfortable and felt welcoming. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious, the best at any bread and breakfast I've experienced. The owners are especially lovely and were incredibly accommodating, especially with all of our sweet, but rather rambunctious children. We are determined to go back for a longer stay during the summer and will definitely be staying here!

Room Tip: The cottage directly behind the main house is perfect for families.

On our 5th anniversary my husband surprised me with this get-a-way. We had a private cottage that was absolutely wonderful and charming. Everything was perfect from being greeted at the door to fresh waffles in the morning. Couldn't have asked for more...

We have been staying at the River House Inn for the Thanksgiving Holiday for the past 3 years.
The rooms and cottages are clean and well furnished. The owners Rick & Duane have been excellent hosts and the breakfast provided is not to be outdone anywhere.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the West Room in the main house and also have used the cottage for larger crowds.

My husband and I stayed one night at the River House Inn. Upon arrival, we were immediately greeted by Rick, one of the innkeepers. Rick wasted no time making us feel welcomed with an offer of coffee and a tour of the place. The cottages we viewed were clean, tastefully decorated, and had plenty of nice touches - drinks in the mini-fridge, bags of popcorn, and chocolates! Our cottage had a nice television (with cable), a big comfy bed, and a cozy fireplace. It was not hard to completely unwind and relax. After thinking our stay could not possibly get any better, we had the world's best breakfast! Fresh from the oven coffee cake, light fluffy waffles, eggs cooked to order, savory home-fries, fruit, and bacon! Who could ask for more? We were certainly impressed with all of the treats, the attention to detail, and the delightful spirit of the innkeepers!

First, if anyone has a single complaint about the River House Inn, he/she is a nitpicker and probably dissatisfied with everything.

The house, decor and ambiance are charming and welcoming. The feeling is of truly being welcomed into someone's home. Bedrooms are cozy and wonderfully appointed. The breakfast is beyond description and the owners wait on you.....but without hovering. At the same time, Rick is always up for conversation if you are so inclined.

I was there alone with 3 small children who were "pretty good" and not once did either owner give me a tense look.

We went out on a limb, and decided to visit this part of the country for a sleepy bike ride in warmish weather for October. We were not disappointed. The accomodations were clean, roomy and comfortable. The breakfast was the high point. Delicious fresh, homemade choices were abundant.
We were in a water view room, which was quite large. It was off season so our rate was great which included the aforementioned delicious breakfast. Not sure if I'm running back to Snow Hill, but if I did, I would stay here again. Can't comment on all the rooms, but ours was worth returning to.

We came upon this inn unexpected on a saturday while on a roadtrip through eastern USA. They had one room left and we absolutely loved it. Four poster bed in a spacey room with a porch in frond and with complementary soda's and water in a communal fridge. The B&B is full of southern charm, has a nice pool and at sunset you should definitely take a stroll through the garden to the river Poconoc.
But best of all, the hospitality of the owners and the scrumptious breakfast: fresh fruit, eggs the way you want them, the most delicious belgian waffles (nothing like the ones at the waffle house or supermarket), and if your lucky home made almond french toast.
We planned to stay 1 night but after breakfast it was quickly decided that we'd definitely would stay for a second night. The town is small but cute, and the beach is closeby.
Dwayne and Rick are the nicest people and made us feel like we were visiting friends.
