Experience the River House
The River House is located in downtown St. Augustine on the Matanzas River, with a view of the St. Augustine Lighthouse from our outdoor covered terrace. Our interior designer has selected furnishings both new and antique that give each room character and Old World charm. Our color palette is soft, muted gold and sage green, with either hardwood floors or carpet throughout the building.
The Grand Ballroom
Weddings, festive ceremonies and hallmark events become even more special in the River House Grand Ballroom. Our ballroom can accommodate 240 guests seated with a 32ft round hardwood dance floor. We offer 6ft round tables of ten, with ivory-cushioned Gold Chiavari chairs. Perfect for receptions, ceremonies, and hallmark events, the Grand Ballroom also includes French doors overlooking the terrace and spectacular water views!
River House Terrace
Relax and enjoy the beauty of the Matanzas River from the timelessly elegant River House terrace. As guests descend the down lit terrace steps and onto the tumbled stone pavers, they are greeted with a breathtaking view of the St. Augustine lighthouse. Our terrace is perfect for wedding ceremonies, cocktail hour, or a stroll on our down lit dock. Also includes 7 cast-iron tables with 28 chairs, and 8 wicker rocking chairs.
The Conservatory, just off the ballroom has travertine floors, white walls, iron-framed, mirrors shaped like palladiums windows lining the walls, antique hanging lanterns and 6- 37”square tables each with 4 white Chiavari chairs. All this helps to complete the feeling of a “garden room.”
