We planned a stay with Rivertown to celebrate my sister-in-laws 70th birthday. We reserved the Agatha Christie room for her and the Rosetti room for ourselves. She was delighted with the surprise and we were wrapped in the beauty and comfort of the inn. The warm welcoming staff, the tasteful social hour and tasty breakfast enhanced the graceful charm of...

This is much more than your typical B&B, every detail of every room is thought out. I was looking for a place I would appreciate (i.e. NOT 1990's floral throw-up everywhere), while this place does have floral elements, they are rich and tastefully done. If you check in early, ask if there are any rooms that aren't occupied yet and... More

The accommodations are outstanding and very unique with lots of eye candy. The people and the staff make for an incredible experience. We already booked for next year! Highly recommend if you are ever passing through Minneapolis.

This was our 3rd visit to the Rivertown Inn. I cannot say enough about our experience. The staff, the food, the rooms...everything is top notch. This time we stayed in the Agatha Christie suite. It was so peaceful and gorgeous. Also there is so much to do in Stillwater, it's a great way to get away and recharge.

We've stayed in Victorian B&B's in Stillwater and elsewhere for 30 years, and the Rivertown Inn is among the best in this class. The grounds are exceptional, with professionally and tastefully designed landscaping, fountains, and water features, along with a large screened-in gazebo. There's an evening social hour with wine, cheese and crackers, and the breakfast is a chef-prepared gourmet... More

Lovely two nights spent at Rivertoen Inn. Beautiful house and every comfort. Enjoyed the complimentary wine and snacks. As a couple from UK we enjoyed sitting in the sunshine on the front porch. Good company as other guests were sociable and it was good to share experiences over the gourmet breakfast. We would certainly return if we are ever in... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 days for the first part of our honeymoon. As we had a literary-themed wedding reception, this place fit the bill perfectly. Our time in the Agatha Christie Suite was divine and more than we could have asked for and the photos did not do it justice! The staff was wonderful and beyond... More

First off, the home and grounds are beautiful, but beyond this, we were very disappointed with our stay. When paying top dollar for a bed and breakfast, I guess one expects a bit more and more importantly, to be treated with respect. There were a lot of little things that we felt were not A+, but here are a few... More

We celebrated our 40th anniversary at Rivertown Inn. Set in beautiful Stillwater, the Inn offers a comfortable and well-appointed place to relax. It is easy walking distance to downtown although be prepared for the steep climb home in the evening. We spent one evening chatting in the gazebo and another taking a riverboat cruise. The room was comfortable and quiet.... More

My husband and I spent a Thursday night in the Agatha Christie Suite and this was actually our very first bed and breakfast experience. The pictures simply do not do justice.
