My sisters and I have been coming to River Ridge for years; we almost feel part of the family! Cathy and Paul are so welcoming and the second floor accommodates all 6 of us with ease. We love catching up on what everyone has been up to over long, leisurely breakfasts. Always a great time! Christine

The author of this review is one of a family of sisters that we have hosted here individually, with her spouse, with one or two sisters or their full group of 6. Their formerly annual visit during Thanksgiving weekend is sorely missed. Over a period of many years, we had the pleasure of hosting these family members. While they did... More

During the summer this year (2011), I was very fortunate in being able to stay at this wonderful B&B. My chosen room was the Master's Den and it delivered all that was promised and more.

Even though it's been more tan a month since we (mom and two boys) stayed at River Ridge, I make it a point to leave a review because of the great experience we had there.

We’re pleased to have selected Paul and Cathy’s River Ridge Bed and Breakfast in which to rest after a day of sun and fun on the Grand River. Paul and Cathy were the ideal hosts.

Thank you to this gracious lady for submitting her review.

It is my belief that the integrity of hospitality hinges upon managements' response to negative feedback more than an ability to graciously (and in our case humbly) respond to positive feedback. Thus, I wish to provide context for this review, in the hopes that it may help Trip Advisor readers to make a choice that will work well for them.... More
