Riverside Inn was built in 1948 on the confluence of the Downie and North Yuba Rivers – the perfect location for individuals, couples, families, or groups of friends who love the outdoors in a small-town setting. And we’re open year-round, so there’s never a bad time to visit.
All of our rooms overlook the beautiful Downie River and have everything you need: heaters, ceiling fans, satellite television, private bathrooms, and a lot of comfort. Five rooms come with a full kitchen. Three have a compact fridge and microwave. And they all include a daily continental breakfast.
