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

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
