“Wonderful stay at B & B”
Reviewed September 6, 2010

Cathy was a great hostess. The carriage house was beautifully decorated, quiet, comfortable and spacious. Really enjoyed my visit there. Downtown is a short walk; stores on Hwy 36 are just a few minutes away. I will be back!

My mother and I shared a room and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Cathy is a sweet, gracious host and wonderful cook. The Inn is very clean (which I especially appreciated) , comfortable, charming, and convenient to downtown Stillwater. Would love to come back - perfect small town getaway - and could also be a base for exploring the area...including Minn/St Paul area and just across the river is Wisconsin (cheese country!).

We stayed here for our 30th Ann. It is your dream victorian home. Decorated very tastful, not over done very pretty. Being it is still early spring the garden was not in full bloom. But we did not feel slighted at all. There were two other couples staying one in the carriage house and one in the room across the hall. We felt like we were the only people there. Everyone was served their choice of tea or coffee in their room every morning. Of course we choose to have ours on the front porch. At 9:00 breakfast was served either in your room or in the dining room. All the couples present chose the dining room. It was a very nice change of pace. The first day we were served a glazed grapefruit for the first course. Very good and I am not a grapefruit fan. Secondly a frenchtoast stuffed with cream cheese and blueberries. Which was not heavy at all. And then a dab of strawberry icecream. It was very good and did not leave you feeling like you should starve for the rest of the day. The second day our breakfast was even better. We stayed in the St. Croix Suite, loved the fireplace and tub. We hope to return some time in the summer. If not this year soon!!!
P.S.. You have to be prepared for the hills of Stillwater. This Inn is in a prefect location. Only like 3 blocks from town but it is uphill on the way back.

My husband and I stayed in the Carriage House and absolutely loved it. The innkeepers were flexible with our late check-in and were very accommodating. The breakfast was delicious and we just couldn't have asked for a better experience.

My wife and I stayed in the Carriage house and we loved it. This room is separate from the rest of the house which gives you extra privacy and quietness. Everything in the room was in good condition, we especially loved the fireplace next to the large whirlpool. Breakfast tasted great and was very filling. Coffee and tea was delivered 8am on the dot and the coffee actually tasted like good coffee. Cathy did a good job making us feel comfortable and was very helpful. Also the Inn is located far enough from the downtown Stillwater so it's quiet yet close enough that you can walk there in 5 min!
