Stillwater's James Mulvey Inn provides an intimate alternative to everyday lodging. The owners have revamped a stone carriage house in a quiet neighborhood and enhanced the location with a carefully tended garden and swimming pool, visible below the second-floor guest rooms (there are two). The inn is a five-minute drive from Stillwater's bustling and ever-so-charming riverfront downtown, which features a terrific restaurant called Domacin. On the banks of the St. Croix and just across the border from Wisconsin, this is a town not to be missed. But I am not a fan of bathtubs in bedrooms, so was somewhat disappointed by the whirlpool steps from our very comfortable bed. Because the inn features itself as a romantic getaway, some may find the so-close bath just fine. Also, no cable, so be prepared. But the owners have made dozens of old movie DVDs available for free to stuff into a TV screen hanging from the ceiling at the end of the bed. Or you could bring your own. If you get bored, read the guest comments in the room's log: Many people seem to spend a weekend and fall in love again. The inn's a bit pricey for what is being offered, but is quiet and unique. And after all, what price tag can you put on love?

My husband surprised me by taking me to Stillwater's Carriage House Bed and Breakfast for our anniversary this past winter. We stayed in the Bordeaux Suite and truly loved it! Upon arriving, there was no formal check-in process - the key was waiting in the door for us upon arrival. This truly made for a private experience. The Inn Keepers stocked our cupboards before we came with juices, water bottles, chocolates, wine, peanuts, and Keurig coffee cups. Being that it was in the middle of winter, we really enjoyed the fireplace and the jacuzzi tub. Downtown Stillwater is just a short drive away and we enjoyed going to the cute shops and having access to a nice selection of restaurants. For breakfast, the Inn provided us with vouchers for the Lowell Inn Restaurant, which was delicious! I highly recommend the Carriage House for a short weekend getaway!

Staying in the Art Deco suite of the James Mulvey Englishman's Carriage House is always a unique experience, and this was not our first stay at this favorite place of ours. True and Jill are art collectors and consummate decorators, and they’ve created an elegant retreat. Walking into the suite feels like stepping back into the 30’s as you are enveloped in the warm and sensuous art deco décor. Abundant wall art—some of which is absolutely stunning—fixtures, and many other little details create a perfect experience. Really, the attention to detail is amazing. We also love the unique hotel-like independence (no sense of stepping into someone else’s home) along with the Bed and Breakfast coziness and luxury. Breakfast at the Lowell Inn is a delightful variation on the usual B&B routine as well. Thanks True and Jill for creating the perfect place to enjoy the distinctive pleasures of old Stillwater! We’ll be back!

The James Mulvey Inn is a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle of our city life of raising children, jobs, and busy, busy busy calendars. Located in a residential area of Stillwater yet very close to all the wonderful restaurants and cozy shops, this 2 bedroom option Bed and Breakfast is exactly what we needed. The rooms are wonderful, quaint and very private. The fireplaces and views are spectacular. In addition, what we actually loved was that no breakfast is served on the premises. To some, this may seem like not desirable, but for my wife and I, getting a private breakfast at the wonderful and historic Lowell Inn (that was included in the price of our stay at The Mulvey Inn) was the perfect way to reignite our love and friendship in our get-away. We highly recommend this Inn!

By the way, we think Marx is just a divine place to have dinner as well!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Art Deco Suite. It. Is. Perfect!

The James Mulvey Inn consists of just two rooms that are offered to the public. Both are on the upper floor of an historic carriage house.

The grounds are beautiful; the location is right in town but nonetheless secluded and very quiet. The outdoor pool looked inviting but with the temperature in the 40’s we passed. The location is one mile up a very steep hill from downtown Stillwater. Most people will choose to drive.
The decoration is fun, unique, uncluttered, and not Victorian. We stayed in the Art Deco room and loved it.
This Inn is unusual in a number of ways:
We found a welcoming note and instructions but never saw any representative of the Inn. Breakfast is served at the Lowell in which is nearly a mile away. They provide a voucher that covers the entire cost.
There are no public areas of the house. You are getting a very nice room and use of the gardens and grounds around the carriage house, but do not expect to use or even see any common areas inside the building.
This is the most private B & B that I have ever stayed at.
We would recommend the James Mulvey Inn.
