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

My wife and I have been here three times now, each time a wonderful experience. Our goal is to stay in each room. Make sure to take advantage of the nightly social hour, good wine and great appetizers in a relaxed atmosphere for everyone that stays there. Breakfast is served each morning by a professional chef who gives great detail... More

First visit to the Rivertown Inn!! I would highly encourage a stay here! The Longfellow Suite was comfortable, romantic and very elegant. The details were everywhere, music playing, very comfortable bedding, home was user friendly, decor was exquisite. This home is filled with antiques and breathtaking stained glass, but yet it makes you feel so welcomed and cozy. Larry our... More

This elegant, romantic and very special Inn is a real gem. The bed is incredibly comfortable and the room details are fun, thoughtful and encourage curling up with a great book - which are... More

If you haven't been to the Rivertown Inn, you need to stay there. My husband and I have stayed there multiple times for numerous occasions and we have never been disappointed. We've been able to try out the Longfellow Suite and the Jane Austen Suite. So far the Jane Austen is the favorite. We needed to check in early one... More

Not much more to say than what has already been said. Rivertown Inn has nicely decorated theme suites. My wife and I stayed in the Agatha Christe suite. We thoroughly enjoyed the accommodations, the social hour, the breakfast and the company. We will be coming back.

My wife's birthday was the occasion for our mid-January stay at the Rivertown Inn in Stillwater, MN. What a lovely time we had, from check-in to check-out. We stayed in the Browning Suite and it was wonderful. Very comfy and spacious. The hospitality hour from 5-6 was great -- good wines and appetizers. We had dinner downtown at the Marx... More

Had a holiday party for 60 people at the inn. Beautiful dining and living rooms. Guest could mingle, eat, drink at leisure. Bar service was great. Parking in back and street makes it easy for guests. I would recommend for romantic getaway or for parties

Through the hustle and bustle of this Holiday I must have reviewed in my mind at least a dozen times how I felt walking into the Browning Suite that peaceful evening some 11 days ago. I’m transported to another time and place and all the cares of this world are no longer there. Many thanks again to you and all... More
