Setting to Bond With Your Folks
The Riverside Inn facilities provide the perfect setting for your next corporate retreat, family reunion, or girl's/guy's weekends. Even groups of couples that travel together have found Riverside Inn the ideal place to stay for day trips to local wineries, the bourbon trail, The Ark and evening trips to the casino.
We recommend booking whole Inn rentals as far in advance as possible to ensure availability of all rooms. Groups that book five or more rooms for two nights will receive a 15% discount for a two weeknight rental(Mon/Tues/Wed/Thursday) or a 10% discount for a Friday/Saturday or Saturday/Sunday rental. There is no discount for whole-house rentals for only one night. The CincySavers vouchers can not be used toward a whole house or group rental.
A 50% deposit of rooms plus taxes is required at the time of booking. Groups booking 5 or more rooms will require the balance to be paid 30 days before the stay if the cancellation of a whole house rental (5 rooms or more) with less than 3 months notice, the 50% deposit will be forfeited. Cancellations 30 days or less of expected arrival will be charged for the entire value of the group reservation.
Meeting Room Rental
Let our private meeting room overlooking the Ohio River inspire your next management team building event or board meeting, or retreat.
The Room features:
The staff at Riverside Inn will work with you to provide any food and beverage needs your group may require during your stay. With your guest room stay, your breakfast is included. In addition, we can provide meeting breakout refreshments, as well as lunch for an additional cost. Sandwich trays, a grill out of burgers and hot dogs, or lunch catered in from a local restaurant area all options depending upon your needs. The afternoon reception of wine and cheese can be customized when you reserve the whole Inn with an overnight stay. Warm cookies and milk/tea/coffee break is also popular mid-afternoon. Cost is dependent upon the length of use of the facilities and meal and snack services required.
Retreats, Girls & Guys Weekends
We welcome couples, men golfing/casino trips, and girls get-a-ways, wine tasting and tours, shopping, scrapbooking, quilting, church retreats, antiquing, or gathering together to catch up with friends.
Families from all over will relish memories created at the Riverside Inn. Reserve the entire Inn for a holiday or weekend.
Bridal and Baby Showers
Riverside Inn may be available for Sunday afternoon bridal or baby showers, dependent upon how many guests we have staying over from Saturday to Sunday. The Inn provides the venue only, and the host is responsible for all food, beverages, dishes, serve ware, etc. We are limited to the seating that we have on hand unless you provide additional seating. No decorations can be taped to any surface. Guests will be limited to the Inn's public areas and will not be allowed access to the guest rooms or to tour the house. Catering may be brought in, but no food prep in the Inn's kitchen is permitted. Cost is $500 for groups up to 40 people for up to a 3-hour rental. Larger groups and extended times may be available at an additional fee.
Weddings and Exchange of Vows Ceremonies
There is no more picturesque setting to say your 'I do's' than our view overlooking the river! Due to our bed and breakfast nature, we can not host weddings on the weekends while we have other guests at the Inn. Suppose you are interested in having your dream wedding at The Riverside Inn on a Friday or Saturday. In that case, we offer several packages for weddings of 50 to 300 guests that require rental of the entire Inn and grounds for the weekend. These packages range from $8,500 and up. Tenting and rentals by Advantage Tent Rentals are not included. Weddings are strictly outdoor affairs with no access to the Inn except for your overnight guests, and for that reason, we only book weddings for over 25 people the last week of April thru the middle of October.
For the couple who wants to keep things simple, we offer Exchange of Vow packages for under 25 people who do not require a tent and maybe for up to three hours rental of the gazebo. Exchange of Vow ceremonies are not permitted on Fridays or Saturdays (May thru October) and are popular for Sunday afternoons. Exchange of Vow packages start at $1000 and include a bridal suite for your wedding night, a minister, and up to three hours to use the grounds and gazebo. We offer Exchange of Vow ceremonies for no more than 25 guests inside the Inn from November through April. We recommend calling Riverside inn, for a consultation to review the various packages available.
Photography and Drive-bys
We agree that The Riverside Inn Bed and Breakfast grounds are desirable for wedding or family portrait photography.
Contact the Innkeeper for availability when the Inn does not have guests. You must have permission to take photographs on our property and are at the discretion of the Innkeeper/Owners for availability. Rates start at $100 an hour. They are only paying overnight guests of the Inn to have access to the inside of the house, gazebo, and outbuildings. Members of groups for photography are NOT permitted entry to any of the B&B's facilities.
Drive-bys are permissible, but not for tours/history of the home, use of bathrooms, or other reasons for unexpected arrivals. If interested in viewing the property for a possible group stay or event, please schedule an appointment with the Innkeeper in advance. Our home is private property. Therefore stop-in guests that help themselves to our outdoor facilities or enter the Inn without Innkeeper approval will be considered trespassers and subject to removal by local law enforcement.
An alternative to a Hotel Meeting Space
It's easier to think outside of the box in our comfortable meeting room with its splendid riverview or outside in our large gazebo.
Full day rentals of the conference room or the gazebo are available.
Weekday conference room only rental is dependent upon the occupancy of our guest rooms.
