The staff was very welcoming and accommodated all our requests. We planned a day in Stillwater and not having to drive home added to our weekend enjoyment. The reception was nicely laid out and ready when we checked in. Our three course breakfast was served outside - the weather was perfect. The chef described each course too. There were 8...

This was our 4th time at the Rivertown Inn and we just can't say enough great things about this place. It's only a couple blocks from downtown Stillwater. The staff are friendly and professional. We always stay in the Oscar Wilde suite and it's a beautiful room. Extremely comfortable and unique bed, luxury linens. Very quiet and romantic. The grounds...

Beautiful historic home with a charming carriage house. The staff was very accommodating. Food was great, breakfast was presented by the chef in courses. All organic and local. Comfortable rooms. We stayed in the Lord Tennison room in the attic... Bed was very comfortable. Bathroom was the essentials, not a lot of privacy (curtain, no door). It was clean and...

Stillwater is an old historic river town full of beautiful Victorian homes. As we drove up the steep hill from downtown, we were pleasantly surprised at the beautiful gardens surrounding the Rivertown Inn. As we entered, we were greeted by a friendly woman who graciously gave us a tour and actually encouraged us to touch all the antiques! No detail...

Rivertown Inn is in a great location. Close enough to walk to downtown and the river (be prepared for a steep walk back) and far enough to be quiet. The grounds are well maintained and the flowers gorgeous. We enjoyed the Agatha Christie suite in the carriage house. It is unusal and there was a lot of attention to detail...

We've stayed at several B&Bs in Stillwater, and this one is the cream of the crop. The Oscar Wilde suite is out of this world--from the rain shower/steam shower, to the jacuzzi tub, TWO fireplaces, private, well-appointed bathroom that's nicely separated from the rest of the room (not always a given at B&Bs), multiple sitting areas and luxe bed, it...

Enjoyed the weekend away! From early check in to being able to take a sneak peak to all the rooms to the most incredible breakfast! The staff was polite and helpful. We hit the town during the day. Came back and sat in the gazebo with friends before retiring for the night. The time was amazing.

We enjoyed our stay so much at the Rivertown Inn this past weekend and our breakfasts were incredible (definitely a highlight). The staff was friendly, courteous and accessible.
