“Weekend getaway. ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

Took my girlfriend for her first B&B experience. Nice place. Bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was a great start to the day. My girlfriend loved her first stay at a B&B. And they are close to the downtown area. Thanks for a great weekend.

The home is stunning, and the service was perfect! We had breakfast delivered to our room, and that privacy was lovely (also the best scones I've ever had). The room was cozy and the steam shower delightful. Not walking distance to town, but a short drive. The drink and snack reception in the evening was a great touch. A little on the pricey side for the area, but worth it for the overall experience.

My husband and I are frequent visitors of Stillwater. We come to Stillwater a few times a year. We have visited every bed and breakfast in Stillwater and William Sauntry is by far our favorite. We love the location, close to downtown, yet quiet. We love the innkeepers who are very welcoming and ready to answer any questions we have. Tom and Sandy have a way of being present, but also giving us privacy. The breakfasts are delicious, the beds are so comfortable and the inn is really quite stunning. The mansion has the story about the original owners that is also very interesting (alot of history) William Sauntry is our home away from home and we look forward to each visit. It is our time to really relax and unwind. It is hard to leave. Our plan is to someday retire in Stillwater and then we won't have to say goodbye anymore. Until that happens, we are so very thankful that there is William Sauntry to visit.

We had a fantastic time; we especially enjoyed the breakfasts. We stayed in the Butler room, which gave us the option of having breakfast in our room. It was our 40th wedding anniversary, and we were making the most of it. The house is beautiful, and very well kept. It was also very peaceful and quiet. We are looking forward to our next stay.

Room Tip: We loved staying in the Butler room, but all the rooms are special.

We found the Inn sumptuous in its 1800's style. It's a real step back into history and decor. Our hosts were welcoming and more than friendly. A wine and cheese hour in the later afternoon allowed us to meet some of our fellow "Inn-mates" and was a relaxing intro to the property. Breakfast was fabulous!

We were given a gift certificate for this B&B as a wedding gift, so we took a mini vacation to Stillwater. The house is beautiful and we were treated very well. Tom and Sandy are wonderful hosts. We especially enjoyed the breakfasts where we got to visit to with the other guests and hear a bit of history of the town from Tom. Our room was clean and comfortable, loved the jacuzzi tub! We will definitely be returning in the near future.

Room Tip: I don't think that you could have a bad room, we had the Beltram, with the whirlpool tub in a ba...

My partner and I recently stayed at the Sauntry Mansion for a mini vacation. We were lucky to find a room due to a cancellation. The house is beautiful, and immaculately maintained. The decor is classy and sophisticated, down to the finest detail. Wine, beer, cheese, crackers, and snacks were served in the evening. We enjoyed perusing the coffee table books, and basket of menus for local restaurants. Our room was elegant, comfortable, and I can't say enough about the double sunken jacuzzi in the Ellen room! Breakfast on the lovely wrap-around porch was the perfect way to wrap up our stay. The food was delicious, and not overwhelming in portion. The location feels secluded, but is a quick walk or drive to town where there are many great restaurants and shops to visit. Tom and Sandy were gracious, friendly hosts. We hope to return sometime soon.
