Our stay here was wonderful. We were met at the door and the four course breakfast was unbeatable. Room was gorgeous. Left relaxed and would definitely go there again. We stayed in the Alfred Tennyson suite- it exceeded expectations.

My wife & I recently celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at the Rivertown Inn. We had a wonderful time. The property is very nice, our room was great (Browning Suite) and Chef Ray's breakfast was outstanding. In addition, we signed up for the dinner and wine pairing special at Domacin which was also very good. We would recommend both!

We celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary this weekend in Stillwater,Mn. at the Rivertown Inn. We were warmly greeted by the Caretaker (Larry) of the property since we were late arriving. We stayed in the Lord Byron Suite, which was amazing! For some reason, we had the entire house to ourselves. The Inn Keeper had the other rooms open, so we... More

We had a wonderful experience at Rivertown Inn!! We were scheduled to go in November and my husband got sick the morning of our visit. I called to cancel our reservation and inquire about my options….honestly not expecting to get any given the cancellation policy. I couldn’t have been more amazed at how they responded! They did charge my credit... More

We discovered the Rivertown Inn 8 years ago. It was such a beautiful place and a special time for my husband and I, that we have made this our anniversary tradition. We come back the same weekend every spring! We have stayed in several of the rooms, but the Browning Suite is our favorite. If you are looking for a... More

We stayed in the Oscar Wilde suite and thoroughly enjoyed it. The bathroom was a suite in itself with the 2 person jacuzzi, the rain shower/sauna and it's own gas fireplace. As if that weren't enough, the breakfasts were amazing! We got to enjoy eating out on the porch during some of the first nice weather of the season. The... More

Our kids gave us a nite here for our 40th anniversary and it was the perfect gift. We loved being welcomed to the lovely Jane Austen room by NPR's classical music. The three-course breakfast was fabulous with a delicious fruit/fiber muffin (including gluten-free for me), a maple-custard baked oatmeal and a healthy and tasty veggie/egg/sausage hash. It was best breakfast... More

We stayed in the Agatha Christie suite which was amazingly decorated with a huge whirlpool and separate bathroom with huge shower. The evening snacks and wine were delicious and breakfast was a gourmet feast. The staff is friendly. A lot of attention went into every aspect--the home, grounds, food. Great place to stay!

We stayed in the Wilde suite during our stay for one night. The suite is gorgeous and even has a steam shower. Skylight above the large whirlpool tub. Two fireplaces. Interesting corner bed. Very cozy. But the breakfast.....oh man....the breakfast I need to google some better words for 'amazing, delicious, beautiful' it was hands down the absolute best breakfast I've... More

We did a last minute stay here and it was a great surprise. Walking distance from downtown Stillwater, the house is BEAUTIFUL, I mean amazing. You don't have to love architecture to appreciate the hard work that went into Rivertown Inn. The staff is great and the Chef was outstanding! My hubby has a food allergy that I noted before... More
