A Bed and Breakfast on the Erie Canal

Discover the River Edge Mansion Bed and Breakfast in the Central New York Syracuse Region

Welcome to River Edge Mansion!

You will fall in love with this restored Greek revival mansion on the banks of the Oneida River just 12 miles from Syracuse in Central New York. The 1818 Schroeppel Homestead, now known as River Edge Mansion, was home to the first school room in the area and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The Mansion’s fascinating history includes the legend of a French princess and its builder George Casper von Schroeppel.

This lovely historic home has been restored to display its original charm and elegance. The Mansion retains its beautiful hardwood floors, wood spindle staircases, interior window shutters and the original cherry ceiling in the dining room.

This nearly 200 year old structure has five marble and stone fireplaces.

Pocket doors and a tin ceiling remain as do exquisite hand-carved moldings and cornices. Three beautifully appointed guest rooms furnished with period fine antiques and oriental rugs will warm the hearts of the most discerning guest. This gracious bed & breakfast allows you to escape from the ordinary.

Tastefully decorated rooms create an atmosphere of elegance and refinement yet allow you to completely relax and feel right at home. Indulge in a whirlpool bath, read by a marble fireplace or dream under the canopy of an antique bedstead. Spacious surroundings inside and out give you an opportunity for complete privacy or gracious sharing. A pathway leads you directly to the Oneida River where you will find docking facilities with water and electricity hookup for boating, fishing, and swimming. If you are traveling on the canal, dock your boat and stay a night or two!

Combine all of this with fabulous gourmet breakfasts and you may never want to leave!

Wonderful and Comfortable

We had a wonderful and comfortable one night stay that was enough for us to make plans to revisit. The hosts were friendly and communicative from the moment we arrived. (And we arrived early— hooray for no traffic!). Breakfast was delicious and the other guests were there for the same reason we were and we all had fun discussing the concert we had just seen. The coffee flowed and the blueberry muffins were hard to resist. (And I really wanted to stash one in my purse). The host dog gave my husband a tour of a little hiking trail and also encouraged him to jump in the river. Husband declined the jump, but the pup enjoyed a morning swim. We are now researching reasons to visit this lovely place again. Thank you to John and Rebecca and Riley for having us in your home.
