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

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

Because most of Stillwater's B&Bs score highly, whether one is rated first or fifth denotes little difference in quality of stay. All offer a very rich experience in almost every way. Of the top B&Bs, the Rivertown is the most extravagantly furnished in period antiques and decor. It' also located right at the top of the Chestnut Street steps, just... More

I stayed at Rivertown Inn over the 2014 Christmas Holidays. Everything was perfect. The staff was super friendly and informative. Larry Loyer especially. He could answer all of my questions about the history of this gorgeous property. After 4 nights, I hated to leave but can't wait to return. Oh, and the chef is top-notch too. The breakfasts are a...

The staff was amazing, very helpful and courteous throughout our entire stay there. We stayed in early winter but plan to come back in the summer to take advantage of the entire grounds.The entire Rivertown Inn is full of antiques and interesting architecture for the period that the home was built and the theme of the inn. Looking forward to... More

My wife and I went on 5 day vacation for our 14th anniversary. This was our last place to stay. We were blown away by the beauty. We stayed in the Jane Austin Sweet. This particular room was gorgeous. The staff, at our request, had a bottle of champagne on ice waiting in our room. It was the most perfect... More

We stayed in the Agatha Christie suite on a Friday night to celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary. The main house is absolutely beautiful! We were greeted by a friendly young woman who toured us around, pointing out the 2 dining rooms where breakfast would be served in the morning, various places to lounge and relax, the "honor system" wine/champagne bar...

My husband and I stayed at Rivertown Inn in Stillwater to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary. Online reservation process was easy and communication was good (email confirmation and reminders prior to our visit). The inn is beautiful inside and out. The gardens are very well kept with lovely flowers, statues and fountain. There is a wonderful screened gazebo with... More
