As Far As The Venue, You Have A Winner!

Choosing the Riverhouse to host our daughters wedding and reception was the best decision we could have ever made! From the management to the wait staff, they all did an outstanding job. Their event coordinator (Cindi) is the best in the business. From setup to the last dance and all that is in between, she made everything run so smoothly like a well oiled machine. The venue and view are beautiful and the food is excellent.
Thanks to everyone at the Riverhouse for truly making our special day PERFECT!!!

Nothing But Positive Things To Say – Rehearsal Dinner

We held our rehearsal dinner at the Riverhouse. We found the staff to be extremely helpful and the space was beautiful. I had met with Cindy as we looked for a potential wedding venue and I found her to be absolutely wonderful — she was present at our event and she ensured that everything ran smoothly the entire time. I knew that the night was in good hands with her there. Kris also walked us through the planning process and she was super responsive and friendly and ensured that everything was set up going into the weekend. I would highly recommend this venue for a wedding or rehearsal and have nothing but positive things to say!

The Riverhouse Team Are Amazing Partners

There’s nothing like working with a Team who takes the ‘worry and stress’ out of having a successful event! The Riverhouse Team is accommodating, always smiling, and a pleasure to work with! Everything from the private room, the beautiful panoramic view, stunning sunset and the food was a huge hit! There was more than enough food, and there was something for everyone! The Riverhouse Team are amazing partners and I highly recommend having an event here!

We Couldn’t Have Imagined A More Perfect Venue

We couldn’t have imagined a more perfect venue for our special day.

Thank you for helping create our happily ever after!!

We Were Absolutely Blown Away By The Overall Experience

Our reception was at Riverhouse on November 12th and we were absolutely blown away by the overall experience. The venue itself was exactly what we were looking – it has a rustic yet romantic vibe and the view on the river is incredible. The floor layout was completely different from any other wedding venue we had seen. All of the seats are around the dance floor which gave all of our guests a clear view to all of the exciting events on the dance floor. 

The food was AMAZING (bacon wrapped filet, cheesy potatoes, kicken shrimp… I could keep going!) We received tons of great feedback on the entire experience. 

The event staff were an absolute joy to work with. Kris VanDerNoord, the Events Manager was with us every step of the way with amazing ideas and tips about decor layout and design, ways to save and was always on top of everything! She was always quick to respond to my (many) questions and always made time to meet around our busy schedules. Cindy, the wedding coordinator was awesome and helped get everything together day of. 

Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend any event at the Riverhouse. The team did a flawless job at helping us plan one of the happiest days of our lives!

We had a wonderful time here for our wedding reception

We had a wonderful time here for our wedding reception on the water! The views were spectacular; the food was amazing; the staff was friendly; courteous and on top of everything throughout the evening; the venue was simply incredible. Many of our guests have told us how much fun they had and what a great party it was. Unquestionably, a large part of that is due to the staff of the Riverhouse making sure everything went seamlessly throughout the evening. Thank you Kristin, Shannon and crew for helping to make it an evening to remember!
