Riverbend Inn Bed and Breakfast
Table Of Contents
Welcome to Riverbend Inn
Experience the world of a private country estate. We have ten luxuriously appointed bedrooms and suites that offer comfort and relaxation in a casual atmosphere. We pamper you with plush linens on mahogany beds, overstuffed sofas and chairs, and inventive gourmet food. Our 15 acres of gardens, meadows, and fragrant pine forest offer peace and privacy. Our name comes from our location on the pristine Chocorua River that meanders through the property. We even have an island to which you can escape with a book or picnic lunch.
We like good food
Breakfast begins with fresh fruit compote and maple yogurt topped with homemade roasted granola. Or, grapefruit sections with rum raisin sauce or our special version of peaches and cream. Served with freshly baked cinnamon-plum cake, cranberry-bran muffins, or blueberry breakfast cake. Next, come light and fluffy blueberry pancakes, eggs Florentine, or Crème Brulee French Toast. And, of course, hot coffee, teas and juices.
Come to Riverbend Inn Bed & Breakfast to be renewed, to be pampered and to indulge all your senses. Explore New Hampshire's scenic byways, shop nearby outlet stores, or just dangle your feet in our river. Riverbend's convenient and easily accessible location at the gateway to popular Mt. Washington Valley allows our guests to enjoy all the region offers.
Not your typical Bed and Breakfast
While we’re pleased to have won awards for our inventive breakfasts, we’re most proud that our guests rave about breakfast at Riverbend. Our philosophy is to use the freshest, very best, locally produced ingredients and to prepare them simply and lovingly. Whenever possible, we use fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables from our kitchen garden, produce from nearby farmers markets and locally produced honey, maple syrup, eggs and cheese. We serve leisurely multi-course breakfasts in our light-filled dining room or outside under an umbrella on the riverside deck.
Whether you’re planning a wedding, an elopement, renewal of vows, family reunion or birthday celebration, Riverbend Inn offers the ideal location for your memorable event. We specialize in small, intimate gatherings from two to fifty. We can seat up to 25 in our dining room. For events up to fifty guests, a tent can be raised on the front lawn. (And if you’re planning a larger event, contact us anyway-if we can’t accommodate you, we have neighbors with beautiful old barns who specialize in larger celebrations.) Our idyllic setting in a forest of pines and maples along the gently flowing Chocorua River provides serenity, privacy and a lifetime of memories. Our gardens, lawns and riverside decks and terraces provide a variety of locations for your ceremony, reception, luncheon or party.
Voted "Best Romantic B∓B" by New Hampshire magazine, Riverbend Inn is an ideal choice for any romantic occasion, and especially perfect for those who want an intimate event in a relaxed but elegant setting. Exchange your vows on a slate terrace at river’s edge or in front of a roaring fire. Entertain your guests with a tented reception on the front lawn or on the deck overlooking the river. While we don’t do event catering at Riverbend Inn, we are happy to suggest reliable local vendors and to work with you to make your special day come true.
For weekend weddings, we require that all rooms of the inn be rented for a two night minimum. In addition, there is a facilities fee of $1200, half of which is a non-refundable deposit ($600) which will reserve the inn for you and your guests.
