Special Events

The Nichols' dedication to the House shines through in all corners of the manse. From the individualized room decorations to the peaceful front and side yards to the delicious breakfast, and snacks offered throughout the day, a stay at the Riverview Mansion is a truly memorable and fun experience. The Nichols also give back to the community with reciprocating 10% discounts to/from local businesses.

Click! Eat! Stay! Play! A picture with Superman is cool enough, but Metropolis and its environs have lots more to offer the casual, the curious, and the serious adventurer.
