We stayed in the Agatha Christie room for my wife's 30th birthday and we had a magical experience! We were able to relax and simply enjoy each other's company. The pleasant surprise in our room was the large jacuzzi. Perfect for two. I HIGHLY recommend the Rivertown Inn!

I'm writing this review for my parents, as I booked them a room at Rivertown Inn for a gift & got to explore the property when I dropped them off. They stayed in the Agatha Christie Suite and we're definitely "wowed" by all the special touches in their room, as well as the grand main house and beautiful patio and...

Based on other reviews of the Rivertown Inn, my husband and I were expecting a lot when we stayed here for our eighth wedding anniversary. The room was nice (FYI, no shower, but at least there is a shower head that pulls out from the tub). If you're expecting breakfast, DO NOT STAY HERE ON A MONDAY, TUESDAY, OR WEDNESDAY...

Outstanding. Definitely a great experience. We stayed in the Lord Byron Suite and throughly enjoyed our night at the Inn. The morning breakfast was a real treat. Stillwater is a wonderful destination. I would highly recommend a visit.

We had a delightful experience. The grounds and interior are very well kept and beautiful. The hospitality was excellent. We used the morning granola bar which was excellent. Our room was spacious and comfortable. I did a lot of computer and paper work, trying to catch up, and the gazebo and dining room were very wonderful spots to be productive....

Stayed in the Oscar Wilde suite one night for our one year anniversary and wished we could gave stayed longer! The rooms are all incredible and it's fun to tour the house and see all the antique furniture and architecture.

We truly enjoyed our stay. Staff made sure to make us feel welcome and comfortable. The care taker shared his wealth of knowledge about the home and the family. Matt created tasty breakfast. We plan to return this fall. Hopefully by then they will expand their menu offering evening meals.

We stayed in the Longfellow Suite, and it was exactly how the pictures look! Breakfast by chef Matt was filling and well thought out. The staff very knowledgeable. We had questions on the house (when it was built, was is original, and what was added on later) and they answered everything in detail. The house itself holds a lot of...

I really enjoyed my stay here, the food was amazing and the chef was super nice and willing to share recipes. I did have a problem with showering.
