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.

The public rooms are breathtaking and you will be hard pressed to fine more beautiful or luxurious guest rooms ... anywhere in America. Expect a light but gourmet breakfast and attentive service.

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. We came in late Friday night and were able to get into our suite comfortably and woke up early Saturday to take a two mile walk, sit in the gazebo and then... More

I don't often book B&B stays because they can be pricey and sometimes the rooms or service aren't up to the standard you expect for the price you pay. I made an exception for our anniversary vacation to Stillwater and after looking at a lot of properties in the area I decided on the Rivertown Inn and it was definitely... More

The attention to detail is phenomenal. An impeccably renovated and appointed historic Stillwater Victorian. Individually themed-rooms with incredible decor. The Oscar Wilde and Orient Express rooms are among the largest and most unique rooms, and are our favorites. In keeping with the romantic vibe, no TV's, no in-room phones. Outstanding multi-course breakfasts, served outside on the wrap-around porch during the... More

This gem was an accidental find at the last minute. This beautiful home is impeccably decorated with suites that have a literary flare. We stayed in the Lewis Carroll Suite where the whimsical decorations were right out of Alice in Wonderland. To top off this delightful night there was a gourmet breakfast awaiting guests that was not to be believed.... More

This is our second visit and this time we stayed in the Lord Byron suite. We took advantage of our own private outside sitting area on our balcony. It was quiet and cozy. We could read and enjoy our evening appetizers. Our breakfast was delicious as usual and I enjoyed my wonderful massage by Nelly.

We recently had our fourth stay at the Rivertown Inn. It has become our "go to" place to celebrate special occasions. The entire house and the rooms are comfortable and relaxing. The staff is superb.

Once again, Rivertown Inn met all expectations. From the accommodations to the food to the host to the chef, everything was fabulous. We stayed in the Browning Suite this time and found it very cozy and comfortable. We love that the inn pays attention to the little details, making our stay very special. D & MJ
