I have stayed several times at the Ann Bean Mansion in Stillwater, MN and the experience keeps getting better each time. The innkeepers provide a welcoming atmosphere and the rooms are generously porportioned. I generally expect B&B's to have tiny rooms with small bathrooms too but the Ann Bean's rooms rival modern construction when it comes to size. You genuinely feel you are part of the upper crust at this place.
I have ventured into the downtown area for dinner at various resturants and have had great success at all that I have tried. Although if you go too late you have to wait up to an hour for a table.
Breakfast in the morning is delicious and gives you an opportunity to visit with the other guests. The inn does offer tray service to your room but I prefer the personal service of being served at the large dining room table.
All in all, the Ann Bean is a wonderful experience.
