Riverview Bed and Breakfast Inn
Travel along the mighty Ohio to explore the historical, cultural and natural wonders along the river’s banks.
Watch the magnificent Ohio River roll by while relaxing in a hot tub on the deck of the Riverview Bed & Breakfast Inn in Franklin Furnace, midway between Portsmouth and Ironton. The modern California-style inn, decorated with hand-pieced quilts, offers spacious rooms with views of the river. Traveling by boat? No problem — the inn has a five-slip dock for “dock and breakfast,” according to inn co-owner Bobbie Sich, and a marina next door offers fuel and supplies. She also says that the inn can accommodate all sorts of diets, from gluten-free to diabetic.
