Always a pleasure staying here at Riverbank Motel and Cabins.  My little family got to stay in the Pemi Cottage and it was great.  Lots of room and clean!!  Our Two year old loved the room to move around. As always the owner is kind, helpful and accommodating.  We look forward to future visits!!

Friendly, clean, and comfortable.  We had a fantastic time and Deanna and family were very accommodating. The pool was a bonus in the September heat wave.

We just left there this morning.  What a nice cozy cabin we had and the scenery was spectacular.  Definitely going back next year with the Harley for a longer stay.  Owners are very, very nice.

Thank you Hilary and Deanna for everything.  This place is awesome.  It is close to everything, very clean and the ladies are so nice.  The pool is beautiful and heated.  Prices are reasonable.  We were only staying 2 nights and ended up staying 5 nights.  We will definitely be back.  Thanks again.

Our Story

Deanna Huot
Riverbank’s beginning

On Dec. 29, 1970 Deanna Huot and her husband Ray Calistro purchased 192 Connector Road, a bowling amusement facility called Bowl-Away Alleys.  With a lot of elbow grease and vision, the entrepreneurial pair converted 6 candlepin lanes into the 11 motel units you see today.

While constructing the motel, the cabins and office across the street were purchased giving their customers more riverside lodging options.  The Pemi Cottage was purchased last to complete the package.  Deanna has successfully run Riverbank Motel & Cabins for over 45 years catering to many new and multi-generational returning customers.  Her sociable personality and long-time dedication has helped define Riverbank’s reputation as a welcoming and friendly place to stay.

Tyson and Hilary Calistro – “That Crazy Cliff Couple”
A Second Generation

To continue passionately serving Riverbank’s new and loyal customers, Deanna has passed the torch down to her son, Tyson, and her daughter-in-law, Hilary Calistro to keep it in the family.  The adventurous newly married couple purchased the Motel, Pemi Cottage, and outdoor pool on September 1, 2017.  Together they work with Deanna to continue delivering that same familiar personable service that Riverbank’s customers know and love.  Over time they hope to add their own personal touches to the property, and eventually pursue building additional units.
