“Insider's Review”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

One should expect a paying customer's good review of a well run business, not that all businesses care for their customers or their reviews as Erin and Jeremy do. But what's the inside scoop on the proprietors of the Ann Bean B&B? Ask the nosy, non-paying neighbors who make it their business to keep an eye on the back door of this establishment, day after day, year after year. As business owners, neighbors, citizens of the community, or just plain people do Erin and Jeremy really deserve the best ratings in Stillwater, MN? You betcha!

My husband and I celebrated Valentine's Day early and stayed for the weekend. Our room was wonderful and the food was delicious. They have managed to keep the mansion authentic while adding creature comforts. The bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. The fireplace was romantic and fabulous and we both enjoyed a nice tub after being out in the cold. Jeremy was kind enough to offer us beer, wine or espresso upon our arrival. I've never been to a bed and breakfast where I had so many options. We opted for espresso since we were a bit tired, and all I have to say is Caribou and Starbucks have nothing on Jeremy! We love going to Stillwater and will definitely be staying here again.

Found the Ann Bean mansion on some bed and breakfast finder. Ignored the price, but the occasion called for good reviews rather than prices. Upon arrival, our host provided us with some vodka. I was pleasantly put at ease by our host. We had a buzzing sound the first night, and I found the owner and asked about it. We shared a laugh, as it was the lights, and I hadn't turned the lights all the way off. Comfortable and romantic room. Quiet and nice to watch the fireplace together. Breakfast was excellent, the best meal of the day...and dessert for brakfast. Amazing.

Room Tip: Sunday - Tuesday "weekend" trip.

Jeremy and Erin are lovely hosts! On both occasions, we were warmly and genuinely greeted upon arrival. Jeremy showed us to our room and treated us to a glass of local wine. The home is beautifully restored and cared for. Their dedication to pleasing guests is admirable. They did a fantastic job of accommodating our food needs with our gluten free needs. Even with this, the breakfast was still gourmet! Whether you need a night away from it all or celebrating a special moment, you cannot go wrong here. We will return again.

My husband and I stayed at the mansion in the E.L. Hershey room. It was our first time in a B&B we were pleasantly surprised by the experience! Jeremy was wonderful an even gave us a glass of wine to enjoy while we unpacked. I would recommend this B&B to anyone wanting romantic get-away.

My husband and I stayed here for NYE and I have to say we were so impressed with everything. Jeremy was awesome and brought us wine after dinner elsewhere-I've never been to a B&B where they are so accommodating and welcoming. We had the cheese and cracker basket and it was great for a midnight snack and stocked full of things. We stayed in Ann and Albert's room and it was perfectly relaxing-bed and linens were very comfortable and the room was very quiet. Breakfast was amazing-very filling and yet not heavy. We had breakfast in our room however my husband commented that when we go back (he loved it) that he would want to have breakfast in the main dining room and get a chance to talk to the owners because they were so nice and friendly. Would enthusiastically recommend Ann Bean to anyone looking at B&B's in Stillwater. I've stayed at a few different ones and the others don't come close-there is something about this B&B that is inviting and welcoming, not cold and museum like. The owners are also not intrusive but attentive if you need anything. Could not have asked for a better way to ring in the new year.
