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. The food has always been excellent even though we have had a different chef each visit. We love it so much we have given gift...

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

Staying with you is like coming home! Jon and I had a wonderful time in the Agatha Christie Suite this past weekend. Again, everything was perfect from our room, our food, and the service! We could not have asked for anything more. Thank you for making our Valentine's Day extra special and we will be back for our third visit...

We stayed in the spacious Browning suite, which included a fireplace we could choose to turn on, a large spa tub/shower, and a comfy bed. There was period seating and in the morning good light from the three windows in this corner unit. The well done decor transported us to a different era, however the tone was more contemporary at...

The Agatha Christie room was beautiful, quiet, and spacious. The outside deck would have been more enjoyable had we not been there in February. The evening wine and hors d'oeuvres were really good. Obviously, a bed and breakfast is distinct from a hotel, and though paying Ritz-Carlton type prices, the expectation and experience are much different. As an aside, we...

We planned a stay with Rivertown to celebrate my sister-in-laws 70th birthday. We reserved the Agatha Christie room for her and the Rosetti room for ourselves. She was delighted with the surprise and we were wrapped in the beauty and comfort of the inn. The warm welcoming staff, the tasteful social hour and tasty breakfast enhanced the graceful charm of...

This is much more than your typical B&B, every detail of every room is thought out. I was looking for a place I would appreciate (i.e. NOT 1990's floral throw-up everywhere), while this place does have floral elements, they are rich and tastefully done. If you check in early, ask if there are any rooms that aren't occupied yet and...

This was our 3rd visit to the Rivertown Inn. I cannot say enough about our experience. The staff, the food, the rooms...everything is top notch. This time we stayed in the Agatha Christie suite. It was so peaceful and gorgeous. Also there is so much to do in Stillwater, it's a great way to get away and recharge.
