“Great Weekend!”
Reviewed 8 April 2012

We stayed at the Rivercene B&B for our wedding anniversary, and had a wonderful time. The owner's could not have been nicer, they did everything they could to ensure we had a wonderful stay. I felt so pampered I hated to leave :0)

I took my daughter to Rivercene last weekend, and enjoyed it so much, I brought my husband the second weekend! Rivercene is a work in progress, and the new owners (Since Jan 2011) have undertaken the immense restoration of this beautiful Italianate victorian mansion. Along with your bed and breakfast, expect to be treated to a wonderful tour of the home, and learn of the famed Capt. Kinney, steamboat captain during the civil war, who built the home. Learn and see the secret passages the Kinney family built into the house, in case they needed to escape. See copies of the journals the family kept during the war and get a glimpse of life in the 1860's. Rivercene is the largest, oldest private residence in the state of Missouri, and Donn and Joe are meticulously restoring it to it's original grandeur.
The breakfast was wonderful, with a huge bowl of fresh berries, homemade cinnamon rolls, and breakfast casserole. And, for those who prefer more privacy, there is a second back dining room, where you can be served breakfast. Because this home was built on the Missouri River (across the river from Boonville), remember to turn immediately after the bridge. It's a bit confusing, as you have to pass by some grain elevators to get to the home. Don't let that deter you, however. Rivercene is an elegant and enchanting B and B experience. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Stairs to third floor are steep.

I and three other family members had the privilege of spending three nights in the nursery & nanny's room of this fascinating historical mansion. Our hostesses, Chris & Joanna, were wonderful. The house is beautifully decorated, the food was excellant, bountiful, and beautifully served. I didn't want to leave!

We stayed in the Scarlett room with the heart shaped jacuzzi. We were so excited to be going there for a romantic Valentine;s Day. Well, the tub didn't have any hot water. Kind of hard to relax in a jacuzzi without hot water. We couldn't even take a bath or wash our hair the next morning. Having the tub and relaxing was the big draw for going there. The "full" breakfast consisted of the Pillsberry tube rolls and a spoonful of egg casserole. There was not enough to go around. My partner got nothing to eat.
The room was super expensive and not worth it.
