The River House was the perfect location for our March wedding reception. The building and ballroom are beautiful spaces, but what really sold us was the patio overlooking the water and lighthouse. Our guests had a fabulous time and were so impressed by the venue. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect and we were so happy with our decision to host our reception at the River House. Constance and her team were so kind and easy to work with leading up to the event and on our wedding day. From a practical standpoint, the ample parking for guests was a huge plus. It was also great to have private rooms available for our band and wedding party. We loved that we could choose our own caterer (from a recommended list with plenty of great options) and bring in our own alcohol. We were able to stock an open bar with high quality liquor and mojitos as a signature drink at a fraction of the cost of open bar packages at other venues.Sent on 03/05/2020

The Perfect Pour LOVES working events at The River House! This remarkable venue is unlike any in our town. You simply cannot beat the view, the helpful staff, and the wonderful amenities.
I always love working at the River House. With a beautiful view of the intercostal, a huge ballroom, elegant library area, and beautiful bay windows, there are plenty of gorgeous photo-ops!
River House has all the elegance of a country club and the casual sophistication of a country inn with spectacular water views from every window. The staff are professional and accommodating. This is a win win venue.
