Midwest Living Review
The Riverside Inn Bed and Breakfast is a surprise in every way. You don’t expect its grandeur along a windy road of rural Warsaw. But there it stands, on a hill above the Ohio River, tucked away at the end of a stately looking private drive. It’s not just a beautiful house (though it is beautiful—built in 1869 and restored and expanded in 2011), it’s also a terrific experience. Our stay started with a quick tour of the billiards room, several sitting rooms (stocked with books, games and DVDs), a 24/7 kitchen area for guests (filled with snacks, water, wine and a gourmet single-serve coffee machine), and an unbelievable outside space. You'll also find a large patio and a huge screened-in gazebo, complete with plenty of comfortable seating and a full kitchen. Large stone steps lead down to the Ohio River (it’s a quiet stretch). Grab a pair of binoculars from the gazebo and spend some time down on the banks, or head back up the hill to the large tree swing. Riverside has seven rooms (mostly king suites, but two rooms do share a bathroom and are often rented together to families).
Breakfast won’t disappoint: We had perfectly cooked cheesy grits (it is Kentucky, after all), delicious apple turnovers, and a ham-and-egg breakfast casserole. The innkeepers live on-site and are attuned to guest service. You probably won’t want to leave (we didn’t), but if you do, it’s close to the Indiana casinos; Madison, Indiana; and Elk Creek Winery. Rates from $249.
