“An Exquisite Bed & Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

Are you looking for a first time experience at a Bed & Breakfast in Stillwater, MN? Look no further. Owners Rita Graybill and Mike Robinson will treat you with warmth, intelligent conversation, a sumptuous breakfast and privacy. We adored them. My best girlfriend of 22 years and I wanted a unique place to celebrate our birthdays this year; the Elephant Walk Bed & Breakfast will take your breath away if you celebrate uniqueness, if you require elegance and sophistication and if you crave a memorable experience. A wonderful bottle of champagne awaited our arrival in the Cadiz Garden room and the list of generous accoutrements was endless and lovely. The grounds are a sight to ruminate. Our only regret is we couldn't stay longer. Thank you for making our celebration beyond fantastic!! Lisa Carlson, Farmington, MN, Angie Rubasch, Maple Grove, MN

Room Tip: Go to their website to look at the pictures and trust your instincts. All the rooms are wonderful!

We booked the Elephant Walk, Raffles room online for a one night get-a-way to Stillwater, MN. Neither of us had ever stayed in a true B&B before, so were both understandably expecting doilies and over the top accommodations. The Elephant Walk proved to be anything but! It was simply delightful. The room was cozy and perfectly decorated. It was private, very clean, and had just the right amount of 'extras' with a stocked mini-fridge, wine, and snack plate. We were able to easily walk to downtown for dinner and were lucky enough to have perfect weather.

Breakfast in the morning was a hoot. Rita and Mike could not possibly be any more accommodating to special dietary needs and they are fabulous hosts. Food was wonderful, company was great, it was really the perfect start to the day. I know we will be back, and I'd recommend the Elephant Walk to anyone heading to Stillwater!

My wife and I stayed here the night after our wedding and had a great experience. We stayed in the Chiang Mai room (and are planning on hitting up Thailand for our honeymoon). Rita was a great hostess who served a large, delicious breakfast. The details in the Chiang Mai room were great, including the figure under the bed! All in all good value and would recommend it to anyone who likes a change of pace with a hotel/B&B stay

We recently stayed at the Elephant Walk. Wonderful accommodations. Rita is a magnificent hostess. She has the gift of hospitality. The complimentary bottle of wine, cheese/crackers/fruit, soft drinks, and chocolates awaiting us in our room (Rangoon Room) was a very nice touch, and contributed to a relaxing evening. Breakfast was outstanding, and very filling! You won't need to eat again until dinner time!

The Cadiz is a marvelous room at The Elephant Walk B& B. Each room is unique in their own way but you cannot go wrong with the Cadiz. This room is a romantic retreat. The jacuzzi and private deck help with this. The fire place and bed with surround windows set the tone for the room. A small sitting area is just right to separate the spaces between the jacuzzi and bed. The private bath is small but functional. We did enjoy visiting with our roommates, the fish. They were very friendly. Breakfast was a dining experience with a great balance of food, flavor and conversation. Thanks Rita!

Our first Bed and Breakfast ever! We traveled here to spend a relaxing evening for my wife's birthday. Upon arriving we were instantly whisked away to 1800's Singapore. The eclectic mementos and cultural artifacts captured our minds and hearts from the beginning!

Having been to Stillwater many times before, we chose to stay in and explore the nooks and crannies filled with many curiosities. The room was luxurious and we felt like kings and queens of Thailand for the evening!

Breakfast the next morning was divine. We descended the staircase to a plethora of pleasant aromas wafting from the kitchen. At the ringing of the gong, we were beckoned to the table for a breakfast filled with wild delights and interesting conversation. Mike and Rita played the roles of both host and entertainers. Everything was magnificent! We will be back for more!

This is the coolest bed and breakfast we've ever been to. My wife and I just needed a weekend away, and the Elephant Walk was the place for us.

Owners are gracious and accommodating. The room was simply amazing. We got the best sleep we had had in months, and breakfast was scrumptious.

You must visit Elephant Walk!

Room Tip: The Raffles room was amazing! Make sure to get a room with a hot tub.
