Amenities & Features

  • Overnight guests will receive fresh towels, bedding and light housekeeping upon request.

Barn at Dusk

  • Although Riverdog is not really a traditional bed & breakfast, each unit has it's own cooking facilities and basic breakfast groceries (cereal, milk, bread, preserves, coffee & tea) available in each kitchen. Each unit is equipped with TV, air conditioning, a coffee maker, iron/ironing board, hair dryer, alarm clock/radio.
  • Guests are welcome to bring their own provisions and cook any meals they wish...all implements and table settings are provided.
  • Should guests prefer not to prepare their own meals, a great variety of restaurants and coffee shops are five miles away in Oberlin.
  • Free high-speed wireless is available and emanates from the main building. Guests are welcome to use one of the many surfaces there to work on their laptops. The wireless signal is strong in the Riverview Suite.
  • To keep costs down in this age of portable phones, we have elected to not put phones in the rental units. Guests are welcome to use the guest phone in the main building if their cell is not working (24 hrs a day).
  • 1 1/2 miles of groomed hiking trails with map.

Your Welcoming Committee

  • Wildlife: deer, red fox, bald eagle, pileated woodpecker and more.
  • Spectacular wildflower walk in spring.
  • A restored 19th Century barn and delightful picnic area is available for guest use.
  • Riverdog is very close to the Kipton terminus of the North Coast Bike Trail and is right on the Back Roads and Beaches 35 mile bike tour of rural Lorain County. This is a perfect stop for a summer bike trip. Compressed air and tools are available. Casual bikers will find a selection of bikes in the barn for neighborhood exploration.
  • Anyone with a fear of dogs would probably not be comfortable at Riverdog, despite the friendly nature of the resident hounds. Conversely, if you are a dog lover and miss your pooch, you will love it here.
