RiverBank Testimonials
“Wife and I just stayed 3 days for Son’s Wedding and enjoyed it very much. Staff was friendly and hotel was very clean and quiet. Nice lounge inside and enjoyed a few cocktails.”
Chris Buford

“We love going to the excellent shows at Theater in the Park at New Salem!  Since we are from Decatur, we appreciate having a place nearby to stay after the show ends.  RiverBank Lodge has been perfect for us!”

“Loved the place! Very cozy little getaway for my wife and I. Nice little bar and lounge so we didn’t even have to leave to have some food and a few drinks. Can’t wait to go back!”

“What a wonderful get-away retreat! Such a fun alternative to a regular “hotel.” The kids absolutely loved every moment of being here, and it is in a GREAT location to be near Springfield without all the crowds and typical city busy-ness. Lots of great, cheap lunch options within a couple miles, and Lincoln’s New Salem was right down the road. Perfect!! SO thankful to find a family friendly retreat, both affordable and absolutely fun at the same time. Thank you soooo much!!!”

“We just spent four days at the Lodge for a quilting retreat. They rolled out the red carpet as usual. We had a great time and it was because of the staff. If you are expecting a hotel with island provisions go to the ocean. Petersburg is a small town with down home hospitality. Can’t wait to go back next year!”
Debbie Darrow

“Love the place! We have been coming two times a year for a scrapbooking retreat! Everyone is great, willing to help and very accommodating! Can’t say enough about the Lodge! We keep coming back every year!!”
