The Trout Pond

River Spring Lodge opened in 2016 and was furnished and equipped to serve business owners seeking a smart and modern full service meeting venue to host their business events. Come and experience a business focused Country Inn that is unmatched in the WNY region. Gather your guests at the round conference and dining table that seats eighteen face to face. Make your presentations with a projector and screen while your guests are seated around the fireplace on comfortable leather couches. You can also choose a theater style conference room. After your business meeting, break away and connect as you relax with a drink by the fireplace or try your luck fly casting for a trophy trout on the spring fed pond just steps from the lobby.

A Private Executive Retreat with Exceptional Cuisine

The Hamers serve incredible food regardless of budget. You can choose an affordable three course or four course dinner. But if you prefer you can choose a five course dining experience. The chef will even prepare an extravagant seven course epicurean feast for you and your guests. Enhance your dining experience with wine pairings. You can schedule a cocktail hour before dinner. Or enjoy a cognac and a cigar on the patio or by the trout pond after you dine. Your experience at River Spring Lodge will be exceptional. But building business is about building relationships. Often that is accomplished away from the board room or conference table.


14th Hole at Terry Hills

Make Your Business Meeting Truly Memorable.

When you reserve River Spring for your business event, your guests will enjoy catch and release fly fishing for trophy trout on site. If you prefer, you can host a fly fishing or fly tying school at the lodge. Another option is golf. You can break away for a round at Chestnut Hills, Byrncliff or Terry Hills.

Steelhead Fishing and Pheasant Hunting

Steelhead Fishing

In addition the lodge is situated right between the Lake Erie and the Lake Ontario tributaries. This makes River Spring the perfect choice for luxury guided steelhead fishing trips or a fishing charter. Our guests fish the most productive waters in all of WNY depending on current weather conditions and fishing forecasts. Spend a day together chasing steelhead and brown trout.You can also chose a guided pheasant hunt at the Ringneck Hunting preserve ten minutes from the lodge. After a round of golf, a day of fishing or an afternoon of wing shooting return to the lodge for a cold drink and a warm meal. After many laughs with your clients and friends, sleep deep on your luxury mattress in your beautifully appointed room. In the morning your guests will awake to enjoy a three course breakfast and take home memories of a business trip they will never forget.
