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

We've stayed at several B&Bs in Stillwater, and this one is the cream of the crop. The Oscar Wilde suite is out of this world--from the rain shower/steam shower, to the jacuzzi tub, TWO fireplaces, private, well-appointed bathroom that's nicely separated from the rest of the room (not always a given at B&Bs), multiple sitting areas and luxe bed, it...

Enjoyed the weekend away! From early check in to being able to take a sneak peak to all the rooms to the most incredible breakfast! The staff was polite and helpful. We hit the town during the day. Came back and sat in the gazebo with friends before retiring for the night. The time was amazing.

We enjoyed our stay so much at the Rivertown Inn this past weekend and our breakfasts were incredible (definitely a highlight). The staff was friendly, courteous and accessible. We came in late Friday night and were able to get into our suite comfortably and woke up early Saturday to take a two mile walk, sit in the gazebo and then... More

I don't often book B&B stays because they can be pricey and sometimes the rooms or service aren't up to the standard you expect for the price you pay. I made an exception for our anniversary vacation to Stillwater and after looking at a lot of properties in the area I decided on the Rivertown Inn and it was definitely... More
