Welcome to the Riverside Inn
an elegantly restored Maine Bed & Breakfast, open year' round
The Riverside Inn is located on scenic U.S. Route 1 in East Machias, on the East Machias River. Built in the 1800s, the original house served as home to two sea captains until the early 1900s. We are one of the more established inns in the Machias area, just a few minutes from downtown Machias. The Downeast Sunrise Trail - a hiking, biking, and ATV destination - adjoins our property. Guests of our B&B are served a hearty, freshly prepared breakfast each morning, in our river view dining room.
Down East sightseeing opportunities abound. Step out through our back garden onto the Downeast Sunrise Trail. Hiking, bird watching, beachcombing, and puffin tours are only minutes away. Close by are golf courses, fresh and saltwater fishing, and guided tours and rentals for sea kayaking and canoeing. The Riverside Inn is also less than a two-hour drive to Acadia National Park and St. Andrews, New Brunswick.
Relax in one of our smoke-free guest rooms; each contains a private bath, period antiques, cable TV, and WiFi access throughout the inn. We offer two guest rooms in the Main House and two separate suites in the Coach House.
Guests enjoy a complimentary breakfast, prepared fresh each morning. Choose from a wide range of breakfast favorites and specialties of the house. View the morning birding activity as you gaze out the window at the river below.
