THE OLD RIVERTON INN
Bed & Breakfast
This New England landmark is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. If the walls could talk they might tell tales of the early days when the Inn was known as Ive's Tavern, a welcome sight on the old Albany to Hartford Post Road. They might mention the many restorations and expansions through the years, and certainly, they would speak about the growth of furniture making in Riverton, where the famous Hitchcock chairs were produced for over a century. A favorite story would tell of Harper Lee's many visits because she so enjoyed the area as a place to write. There were several rival stage companies in operation between New Hartford and Riverton. Each stage driver stopped at his favorite inn, where he received special favors in return for bringing his passenger to that tavern.
The Old Riverton Inn has 12 *non-smoking guest rooms that brim with antique charm overlooking the Riverton Village and Farmington River.
*A cleaning fee of $50 will be charged to any room found in violation of the non-smoking room policy.
