“Just what we were looking for!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

The James Mulvey Inn is a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle of our city life of raising children, jobs, and busy, busy busy calendars. Located in a residential area of Stillwater yet very close to all the wonderful restaurants and cozy shops, this 2 bedroom option Bed and Breakfast is exactly what we needed. The rooms are wonderful, quaint and very private. The fireplaces and views are spectacular. In addition, what we actually loved was that no breakfast is served on the premises. To some, this may seem like not desirable, but for my wife and I, getting a private breakfast at the wonderful and historic Lowell Inn (that was included in the price of our stay at The Mulvey Inn) was the perfect way to reignite our love and friendship in our get-away. We highly recommend this Inn!

By the way, we think Marx is just a divine place to have dinner as well!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Art Deco Suite. It. Is. Perfect!

The James Mulvey Inn consists of just two rooms that are offered to the public. Both are on the upper floor of an historic carriage house.

The grounds are beautiful; the location is right in town but nonetheless secluded and very quiet. The outdoor pool looked inviting but with the temperature in the 40’s we passed. The location is one mile up a very steep hill from downtown Stillwater. Most people will choose to drive.
The decoration is fun, unique, uncluttered, and not Victorian. We stayed in the Art Deco room and loved it.
This Inn is unusual in a number of ways:
We found a welcoming note and instructions but never saw any representative of the Inn. Breakfast is served at the Lowell in which is nearly a mile away. They provide a voucher that covers the entire cost.
There are no public areas of the house. You are getting a very nice room and use of the gardens and grounds around the carriage house, but do not expect to use or even see any common areas inside the building.
This is the most private B & B that I have ever stayed at.
We would recommend the James Mulvey Inn.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
A Boutique Bed and Breakfast. The Estate of James Mulvey has graced historic Stillwater for 133 years. Located on an acre and one half campus on Stillwater’s south hill area, walking distance for downtown, the Italianate mansion and stone Carriage House have welcomed guests to an historic inn experience for over 20 years. Currently, two luxury suites are being made available for guest reservations in the Carriage House – the Bordeaux Suite and the Art Deco Suite. These rooms have been the luxury suites of the Inn since its beginning in 1992. The Carriage House itself is a unique historic structure. Built originally to house the Mulvey’s collection of carriages and fine horses. Today the Carriage House, with pool, resembles an English cottage in the Cottwolds. Guest visits to our Inn provide a uniquely private bed and breakfast experience. Our arrangements and preparations allow your to feel welcome in our Inn, without a social reception. Likewise, you may enjoy breakfast in your room or share it with your loved one, on white linen at the historic Lowell Inn. Stillwater is the Jewel of Minnesota. Its bluffs hug the edge of one of the most beautiful rivers in the Midwest, and visitors find numerous year-round activities in all seasons to keep this a favorite destination. ... more   less
