My husband surprised me by taking me to Stillwater's Carriage House Bed and Breakfast for our anniversary this past winter. We stayed in the Bordeaux Suite and truly loved it! Upon arriving, there was no formal check-in process - the key was waiting in the door for us upon arrival. This truly made for a private experience. The Inn Keepers stocked our cupboards before we came with juices, water bottles, chocolates, wine, peanuts, and Keurig coffee cups. Being that it was in the middle of winter, we really enjoyed the fireplace and the jacuzzi tub. Downtown Stillwater is just a short drive away and we enjoyed going to the cute shops and having access to a nice selection of restaurants. For breakfast, the Inn provided us with vouchers for the Lowell Inn Restaurant, which was delicious! I highly recommend the Carriage House for a short weekend getaway!
- 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
