A Bed and Breakfast on the Erie Canal

Discover the River Edge Mansion Bed and Breakfast in the Central New York Syracuse Region

Welcome to River Edge Mansion!

You will fall in love with this restored Greek revival mansion on the banks of the Oneida River just 12 miles from Syracuse in Central New York. The 1818 Schroeppel Homestead, now known as River Edge Mansion, was home to the first school room in the area and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The Mansion’s fascinating history includes the legend of a French princess and its builder George Casper von Schroeppel.

This lovely historic home has been restored to display its original charm and elegance. The Mansion retains its beautiful hardwood floors, wood spindle staircases, interior window shutters and the original cherry ceiling in the dining room.

Welcome to River Edge Mansion!

This nearly 200 year old structure has five marble and stone fireplaces.

Pocket doors and a tin ceiling remain as do exquisite hand-carved moldings and cornices. Three beautifully appointed guest rooms furnished with period fine antiques and oriental rugs will warm the hearts of the most discerning guest. This gracious bed & breakfast allows you to escape from the ordinary.

Tastefully decorated rooms create an atmosphere of elegance and refinement yet allow you to completely relax and feel right at home. Indulge in a whirlpool bath, read by a marble fireplace or dream under the canopy of an antique bedstead. Spacious surroundings inside and out give you an opportunity for complete privacy or gracious sharing. A pathway leads you directly to the Oneida River where you will find docking facilities with water and electricity hookup for boating, fishing, and swimming. If you are traveling on the canal, dock your boat and stay a night or two!

Combine all of this with fabulous gourmet breakfasts and you may never want to leave!

The best B&B I've stayed in

Peaceful with outstanding service. Decorated with loads of beautiful antiques. Comfortable beds, and Comfy seating everywhere. The fire pit was nice with the bottle of Jameson I brought, and the mosquitos appreciated my company(bring repellent if it’s during their season). The river was soothing, joined with the crackle of the fire. The breakfast? Gourmet. The owner knows what she’s doing. Riley made things even more homey, even if he charged a breakfast tax. Well worth the money, and will visit again soon. Kudos!

Highly recommend!

We ended staying here accidentally because we thought it was on the bicycle route of the Erie Canal. It was about 12 miles off our track but we had a wonderful stay. The owners were so friendly and accommodating and made us feel at home. The historic mansion is amazing and the rooms are very nice! Rebecca and her husband were so nice and their golden retriever was my favorite!!

The rooms look amazing and give off a historic feel to them

Had an amazing stay here the night before our wedding! Rebecca and John were so accommodating and flexible. They made sure all of our needs were met, and assured us they were available at any time if we needed anything further. Although it’s a local place, it felt like we were far away in our own world!

Gracious B&B with lush lawns leading to the river.

Comfortable Adirondack chairs make canal viewing a pleasure. Beautiful wooden floors, high ceilings one with cherry wood and another with punched tin, large rooms with fireplaces, and porches on the first and second floor all contribute to the inn’s beauty and charm.

The two person jacuzzi tub, fireplace, four-post king bed with luxury sheets, and morning coffee delivery made this a romantic get away close to Syracuse. Our bedroom was well appointed with necessary amenities along with extras such as high end toiletries and a hair straightener.

Hosts Rebecca and John were welcoming and happy to share their local knowledge. They have clearly made their own dreams come true in this magical spot and love to share River Edge with their guests.

Breakfast was beyond compare. Rebecca, a trained chef, offers a wide variety of food options all of which include her signature River Edge Rose, a delightfulThe River Edge Mansion is absolutely lovely, and John and Rebecca have done a wonderful job restoring it. We had a very relaxing and memorable stay. The room was quiet and extremely comfortable, and we absolutely loved the delicious breakfasts Rebecca created. Both hosts were welcoming and helpful! I highly recommend River Edge Mansion for those visiting the area. Creation of thinly sliced Idaho potatoes, uncured bacon, and spices. This was a gracious meal including linens and fine china, river view, fireplace, and period furniture.

We look forward to another leisurely stay at this elegant and comfortable inn.
