From the second we arrived we felt at home! The staff was inviting, attentive and polite, the property is beautifully restored and the breakfast each morning was amazing….both in taste and presentation. We stayed in the Oscar Wilde Suite in the Carriage House which provided a little more privacy and loved the drinks and coffee that were available at all... More

We enjoyed our time at Rivertown. The greetings when we arrived was fantastic, got settled in our room and came down for appetizers and good wine. Went to dinner and had a wonderful walk by the river. We came back to the B and B, had some tasty snicker doodle cookies and some tea. Our room was very neat, wonderful... More

This is an amazing property with beautiful architecture and landscaping. We stayed in the Agatha Christie Grand Suite to celebrate our 12th wedding anniversary. We've never stayed at a B&B before but I'm thinking we'll have pretty high standards thanks to this trip. It was such a great overall experience and so much different from staying in a hotel. One...

The staff was very welcoming and accommodated all our requests. We planned a day in Stillwater and not having to drive home added to our weekend enjoyment. The reception was nicely laid out and ready when we checked in. Our three course breakfast was served outside - the weather was perfect. The chef described each course too. There were 8... More

This was our 4th time at the Rivertown Inn and we just can't say enough great things about this place. It's only a couple blocks from downtown Stillwater. The staff are friendly and professional. We always stay in the Oscar Wilde suite and it's a beautiful room. Extremely comfortable and unique bed, luxury linens. Very quiet and romantic. The grounds... More

Beautiful historic home with a charming carriage house. The staff was very accommodating. Food was great, breakfast was presented by the chef in courses. All organic and local. Comfortable rooms. We stayed in the Lord Tennison room in the attic... Bed was very comfortable. Bathroom was the essentials, not a lot of privacy (curtain, no door). It was clean and... More

Stillwater is an old historic river town full of beautiful Victorian homes. As we drove up the steep hill from downtown, we were pleasantly surprised at the beautiful gardens surrounding the Rivertown Inn. As we entered, we were greeted by a friendly woman who graciously gave us a tour and actually encouraged us to touch all the antiques! No detail... More

Rivertown Inn is in a great location. Close enough to walk to downtown and the river (be prepared for a steep walk back) and far enough to be quiet. The grounds are well maintained and the flowers gorgeous. We enjoyed the Agatha Christie suite in the carriage house. It is unusal and there was a lot of attention to detail... More
