Elephant Walk
Ranked #2 of 10 Stillwater B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We recently stayed at the Elephant Walk and had a wonderful time. We decided on it because it was rated so highly in Trip Advisor and were glad we did. The B&B was in walking distance to Stillwater which is a wonderful city to explore. We booked the Cadiz Garden suite and loved enjoying our wine on the deck at night. I highly recommend this suite and wouldn't hesitate to book it again. The food was very good as well.

We've stayed at a B&B previously which made our expectations extremely high and is the only reason that I decided on a 4 rating rather than a 5. If there was the ability to give a 4.5 rating I would have done so.

Bottom line, book this B&B and you'll have a great, relaxing time.

Room Tip: The Cadiz Garden suite was amazing. Book it!

Staying here was like I would imagine it would be like to stay at B&B in Thailand. The hosts were very nice. The food was very good. Everyday another treat for breakfast. Dessert for breakfast? What a great idea. The daily wine, cheese, fruit, and homemade crackers were always something to look forward to. The owners were so friendly and nice it was staying with family.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience at the Elephant Walk. It felt like we were somewhere far away and exotic. Don't wait too late in the day to check in, as there is complementary wine and a tray with homemade crackers, cheese, fruit, and nuts.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary with a night in the Raffles room. Very pleased with the overall experience. Rita, the owner, is very nice and she cares about her guests. It was an experience that you do not get in a hotel. Relaxing, very peaceful with many nice touches described in other reviews. It was just what we wanted, a peaceful night, away from our four children (there great, but...).

My partner and I had the best stay at the Elephant Walk last weekend. In fact, it was the best B&B experience we've ever had. Mike and Rita, our charming hosts, were incredibly hospitable and didn't miss a detail. The rooms are wonderfully appointed, down to the bath salts, iPod, wine and cheese tray (Rita bakes her own crackers -- not to be missed!), docking station, and downright heavenly bed. We stayed in the Chiang Mai room which was beautifully decorated in Asian imports, as is the entire home. Everywhere you turn around in the Elephant Walk, there is a story that comes to life by way of the wonderful artifacts they have collected from their annual trips to the East. The breakfast in the morning will blow your mind - fresh fruit and scones (OMG, the scones!), stuffed french toast, and yes, dessert (ours was an Apricot Torte). The breakfast presentation was spot on and our service was impeccable. Rita and Mike are pure joy -- entertaining and interesting -- they have put their heart and soul into this place and it shows in everything they do. Run, don't walk, to the Elephant Walk and while you're there, have dinner at the Green Room and if you can, rent a boat and take a stunning trip down the St. Croix (you won't be disappointed!).

My husband and I decided to celebrate our anniversary and get away for an evening--so glad we chose Elephant Walk! We stayed in The Raffles, which was cozy, clean, warm and inviting. Classical music playing on the sound system greeted us upon entering our room, as well as a bottle of wine, fruit, cheese and crackers--welcomed touches after a harried commute from the Twin Cities. Also appreciated the mini-fridge stocked with soda and water. We loved soaking in the large hot tub and watching the fish swim by in the aquarium..very tranquil. Homemade breakfast served by our gracious and fun hosts, Rita and Mike, was delicious--scones, fresh fruit, bacon and pear-filled crepes were some of the offerings. We really enjoyed the opportunity to sit and talk with the other guests at breakfast--and I think it says a lot about Elephant Walk that one couple was frequent stayers and the other was on their second visit. Would highly recommend!!

Forget the stereotypical Victorian b & b; staying at the Elephant Walk is like visiting your favorite sister in Bangkok, Thailand. Rita, the hostess, lived in Thailand for many years and brought a houseful of furniture and art home with her. The bedrooms are comfortable and exotic, and very romantic. Rita is clearly someone who really enjoys taking care of people and she does a great job of it! She is also a fabulous cook. The breakfast was overwhelming and wonderful, and included the best scones we have ever had.
