Rivertown Inn
Ranked #4 of 9 Stillwater B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 February 2011

I had planned a trip for myself and my wife, maybe our last trip for a while, as she is 8 months pregnant, to head for Stillwater, and drive the river valley south through Wisconsin to Winona, Minnesota, then back north through the Minnesota side of the river valley. I researched places to stay extensively, particularly Bed and Breakfasts, as this was going to be a two day drive. The Rivertown Inn is the best decision I could ever have made. We're no history buffs, but we know the finer things when we see them, and the Rivertown Inn is the finest. Every detail in the home has a spectacular quality, whether it be the original parquet floors, or an antique, hand carved poster bed or hutch, or the fancy wall paper, or the fine bath soaps. Nothing could top the quality of our stay. It was so much more than any web pictures can describe, because the love that went into the restoration and construction of this magnificent home cannot be felt in a picture. I recommend a stay, for no less than one night of your life, at the Rivertown Inn in beautiful historic Downtown Stillwater, Minnesota. The city of Stillwater is a thriving community, and nothing could be a better business addition than this fine Bed and Breakfast. Top notch! Jaki and Dan Olson from Buffalo, Minnesota have truly enjoyed their stay, and really want to congratulate you on a beautiful business you have. Much love, and thank you. Dan and Jaki Olson

The Rivertown Inn exceeded my expectations. The rooms are stunning, the breakfast lavish, the welcome warm. We stayed in the Jane Austen bedchamber, which was charming, though maybe not the best choice if you are tall (low-hanging chandelier).

We'll be back again!

The perfect place any time of year for a staycation or vacation. Only 35 minutes from the Twin Cities the gorgeous victorian inn is more like a luxury home than a B&B. If you have visit the inn before you will be delighted by all the wonderful changes that have been taking place at the inn over the past few months. Also, Chef Ray will be missed but Chef Tony was not a disappointment.

My wife and I stayed at Rivertown for our second time (first time in the winter). We enjoyed a very relaxing visit again to the Rivertown Inn. We stayed in the Jayne Austin Room this time. The renovation of this property was very well done. The craftsmanship that has gone into making this property a 5 star B & B is evident throughout. The room was very quiet. I smelled the coffee that was delivered each floor before I went out and grabbed two cups. The late afternoon complimentary wine and cheese snacks were wonderful. The stay is topped off by a great breakfast. The chef is unbelievable with his creations and puts on a great feast. The owner - Jeff stopped by during our breakfast for an enjoyable chat. The entire staff is very warm and friendly. All in all, another great stay. Stillwater is a fun weekend get away and Rivertown is clearly the place to stay. We will be back! Mike and Julie

This was our second trip to Rivertown Inn. They are absolutely amazing. Every detail of the stay is flawlessly executed. The details in the decor make you feel like royalty. This fabulous B&B has a well laid out social hour with a great selection of cheeses, meats and such. They also have an honor system bar selling a good selection of wine at cost rather than a huge mark-up (this is one small step which makes you feel at home rather than exploited).
Highly recommend the carriage house.

I recently had the pleasure of staying in the Browning room at the Rivertown Inn. The room is lovely – large and spacious with views over the grounds. There is a useful sitting area, bookshelves full of Browning’s works and a spectacular and comfortable half-tester bed. The room is somewhat lighter in feel than some of the other rooms, but still lavish and opulent.

My stay at the Inn was particularly comfortable – and delicious – because of the outstanding staff. Mary and Chef Ray both made me feel completely at home. I would heartily recommend the Rivertown Inn to anyone looking for a comfortable stay in beautiful surroundings, whether you want to get a lot of work done, or simply relax to think about the morrow.
