Perfect for romantic getaway, quiet retreat, balm for the soul. A new discovery of art and beauty at every turn, from the garden sculptures to the Victorian treasures in each room. Impeccable service and bountiful breakfast. We were treated like king and queen! Come early, stay late, and explore the property. Walk down to Stillwater for shops and dinner; the...

My husband and I spent one night at the Rivertown Inn to celebrate his birthday and get away for the weekend. What a wonderful experience! The staff was very friendly and helpful. We engaged the caretaker to learn about the history of the Inn. Overall, the Inn was beautifully restored and decorated, and impeccably clean! Our room (Tennyson) was cozy...

My wife and I stayed at the Rivertown Inn after several days of camping in Boundary Waters and it was just what we (she) needed to get reintroduced into society. The building and landscaping are beautiful and the staff is extremely friendly. We stayed over on a Saturday and had the breakfast on Sunday which was outstanding. We sat in...

I hosted my friend's Bridal Shower at Rivertown Inn this past weekend. It was fabulous! All of the girls had summer dresses and facinators. Rivertown Inn was the perfect setting for this event. Elise was amazing to work with. She was extremely accommodating and was there foreseeing our every need. The Chef helped to create a custom lunch menu. All...

Our stay here was wonderful. We were met at the door and the four course breakfast was unbeatable. Room was gorgeous. Left relaxed and would definitely go there again. We stayed in the Alfred Tennyson suite- it exceeded expectations.

My wife & I recently celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at the Rivertown Inn. We had a wonderful time. The property is very nice, our room was great (Browning Suite) and Chef Ray's breakfast was outstanding. In addition, we signed up for the dinner and wine pairing special at Domacin which was also very good. We would recommend both!

We celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary this weekend in Stillwater,Mn. at the Rivertown Inn. We were warmly greeted by the Caretaker (Larry) of the property since we were late arriving. We stayed in the Lord Byron Suite, which was amazing! For some reason, we had the entire house to ourselves. The Inn Keeper had the other rooms open, so we...

We discovered the Rivertown Inn 8 years ago. It was such a beautiful place and a special time for my husband and I, that we have made this our anniversary tradition. We come back the same weekend every spring! We have stayed in several of the rooms, but the Browning Suite is our favorite. If you are looking for a...

We stayed in the Oscar Wilde suite and thoroughly enjoyed it. The bathroom was a suite in itself with the 2 person jacuzzi, the rain shower/sauna and it's own gas fireplace. As if that weren't enough, the breakfasts were amazing! We got to enjoy eating out on the porch during some of the first nice weather of the season. The...
