We stayed here for our daughter's graduation in May, 2013. Our hosts brought us cheese and crackers on the dock, served delicious hot breakfasts, accommodated two extra guests in the sitting room and our room, and were gracious, friendly, warm and welcoming. Their hospitality made our whole graduation weekend experience delightful.
It was our second time there...celebrated our 7th anniversary. Excellent hosts, they are cool, sophisticated, friendly and extremely hospitable. The house is majestic, extremely nicely decorated, clean and lovely. Our hosts made us a fabulous breakfast, with a couple of courses. We brought our little boat up, launched it a mile away, and docked it right at the B&B. Fabulous location!
The magnificent home was charming. We received a gourmet breakfast cooked to our taste. Entire experience was first rate. Seneca room has a view of the Erie Canal. Grounds were well kept. We tied up our sailboat at their private dock-so convenient if you are touring the NY canal system by boat. Hope to visit again soon.
Weekend Canal Adventure
My husband and I spent our anniversary weekend cruising the Oswego Canal with another couple in their pontoon boat. We wanted to stay over at someplace nice on the river that had a dock for convenience. River Edge Mansion fit the bill perfectly in every way imaginable. From the moment we pulled into the dock it was clear that we were "home" for the night. The grounds are beautifully kept; the house has so much history about it that we felt we'd stepped back in time to the early 1800's, even though there have been the appropriate upgrades. (Electric, plumbing, AC, etc.) It's an amazing place. Our room (Seneca) was period decorated (as are all the rooms) and included a huge bath complete with whirlpool tub and walk-in shower!!! Our hostess was kind enough to make dinner reservations for us at a fabulous restaurant in Baldwinsville that sent a LIMO to the inn to pick us up and return us from dinner. I was in complete awe over that!!! The gourmet breakfast was the perfect ending to a perfect overnight experience. If you're looking for a B&B in the Oswego area, this is a choice I highly recommend.
Everything you have ever wanted in a B&B
The River Edge Mansion is the perfect place for a romantic get away! It has everything! Wonderful rooms - The Oneida Room is the most grand. With its King canopy bed, romantic fireplace and a Jacuzzi tub you could swim in. The hosts are a wonderful and sincere couple who are genuinely interested in their guests. My husband and I come to celebrate special occasions or just a spur of the moment get away. We LOVE it! Room Tip: Best B&B in Syracuse area - The Oneida Room has its own entrance and private balcony
My wife and I have never stayed at a B&B. We thought it wasn't our thing. We decided to step out of our comfort zone and after dropping our daughter off at college we booked a night at River Edge. My daughter said "you should cancel that and book a room at regular hotel." My wife was not happy with my choice and frankly I was unsure myself and hoped it would be OK. It was amazing. We stayed in the Seneca room with a beautiful view of the river, a huge bathroom and wonderful furniture that makes you feel like you've gone back in time. Don't worry the wifi and TV work just fine. Steve and Anne are fantastic and seem to know exactly when to engage you in conversation and when to let you be. Wonderful little coffee station outside the rooms that seems to have everything you could need. Delicious breakfast, nice walk, rejuvinating comfortable sleep. River Edge has convinced us we are B&B people. We will be back.
