Stayed in the Oscar Wilde suite one night for our one year anniversary and wished we could gave stayed longer! The rooms are all incredible and it's fun to tour the house and see all the antique furniture and architecture. Everything was very clean and you could tell there is tons of upkeep on the house even though it was... More

We truly enjoyed our stay. Staff made sure to make us feel welcome and comfortable. The care taker shared his wealth of knowledge about the home and the family. Matt created tasty breakfast. We plan to return this fall. Hopefully by then they will expand their menu offering evening meals.

We stayed in the Longfellow Suite, and it was exactly how the pictures look! Breakfast by chef Matt was filling and well thought out. The staff very knowledgeable. We had questions on the house (when it was built, was is original, and what was added on later) and they answered everything in detail. The house itself holds a lot of... More

I surprised my boyfriend for a night away, we were in the Oscar Wilde suite. The room was beautiful, very intricate, the bathroom was AMAZING, and the service was great. Extremely helpful and friendly staff, the breakfast was great as well!

I really enjoyed my stay here, the food was amazing and the chef was super nice and willing to share recipes. I did have a problem with showering. Our room had a large bath /Jacuzzi but showering was nearly impossible. I would consider myself very agile but that did not matter when I was trying to stay warm in a... More

This place is grown up and fancy without being judgy or elitest. The decor is breathtaking and the rooms are thematic, but not cheesy. You will Instagram yourself into a frenzy. It matches the downtown Stillwater vibe perfectly. Now I don't think I'll ever be able to stay in a "normal" hotel while visiting the city. One important thing to... More

We really enjoyed our experience. The rooms are not big, but they are amply appointed. There are no televisions - but that's precisely what you're looking for in this type of experience. My wife and I were very thankful for the ability to fully get away and "unplug". The walk down the hill to the shops and the restaurants in... More

Oh my…What a wonderful, enchanting getaway. My husband and I were looking to escape the doldrums of January in Minnesota. I had heard about the Rivertown Inn, but our experience significantly exceeded expectations. What an absolutely fantastic experience! We paid a bit more to check in an hour early. What a great idea as we were able to tour all... More

I was so disappointed in the service, quality of the room furniture and there was never a breakfast served, we had dried out banana bread, some apples in a dish and orange juice, sitting on the table, no one around. Furniture was uncomfortable, springs broken in sofa and chair in the guest room, no place to sit and visit in... More

We are sorry to hear that your stay did not fulfill your expectations. Rivertown Inn offers a Weekday Special Monday through Wednesdays where guests may stay at a discounted rate and reservations do not include our evening social hour or regular seated breakfast service. Instead, an offering of assorted house-made breakfast breads, jams, whole fruit, orange juice and coffee is... More

The Rivertown Inn went above and beyond our expectations. From the opulent home itself to the first class service, clean rooms and modern amenities, you will be pleasantly pampered in the heart of Stillwater. The breakfast is a 3 course menu that was beautifully played and presented in class. My husband and I had never tried a B&B before and... More
