Nestled among the upper Mississippi River's scenic bluffs, Riverwood Inn's wood and stone lodgings keep guests cozy, comfortable, and close to scenic outdoor spaces—as well as the Albertville Premium Outlets. Even closer are the inn's own lushly landscaped grounds, where guests can explore ponds, waterfalls, and flowers before exploring the Mississippi River trail system. After games of bocce ball, horseshoes, croquet, or golf on one of the nearby courses, guests can warm up and relax at one of Riverwood Inn's bonfires and s'mores buffets. During winter months, as lighted garlands twinkle from the front porch's rafters, guests can hike in snowshoes, cross-country ski, or take it upon themselves to transform snowmen into snowgentlemen. Not do be outdone by their gorgeous surroundings, Riverwood Inn's 60 guest rooms—some of which include fireplaces and whirlpools—boast antique decor and picturesque views. Visitors residing in the two-story tower suites, whether tourists passing through or wedding guests, can relax in their own in-room whirlpool or take a dip down in the inn’s communal indoor pool or hot tub.
I am a photographer that believes everyone should have beautiful and professional photography in their homes. Therefore, I work hard to keep my prices low enough for most people to be able to afford my services. I shoot in my studio and outdoors. I absolutely love candid, real smiles!
The ruleta wheel at Pancho Villa Mexican Restaurant sends tablefuls of friends into a frenzy when one of the bunch is chosen to take a spin. Landing on the right space in this wheel can grant the entire table free drinks from a selection of specialty margaritas and cocktails. This is just one of the ways the staff amps up the festive atmosphere in the restaurant—there's also karaoke every night Thursday through Sunday. And thanks to the flat screen televisions, patrons can keep an eye on their favorite teams as they face off with rivals or trade secrets for keeping their shoelaces tied.
Patrons come as much for the atmosphere as they do for the menu of chicken flautas, cheese enchiladas, shrimp chimichangas, pork ribs, and other traditional Mexican cuisine. When the weather's nice they can dine outside, where umbrellas protect their entrees from the sun's sticky fingers. Regular lunch specials and the Monticello location's lunch buffet make midday dining even more enticing.
