We attended an event in Stillwater, which is why we decided to stay at Rivertown Inn. Our stay in the Alfred, Lord Tennyson Suite was too short. We didn't spend much time in our room or at the house, but the time we did spend there was very comfortable. The staff of this beautiful bed & breakfast have paid close attention to every detail, soft towels, quality toiletries, and romantic decor. The grounds were well kept and inviting.

Our special, five-course, themed breakfast was well researched and delicious. I enjoyed that Chef Ray explained how each dish was prepared as it was served, and especially loved the house muffins.

I did have a couple of small issues that I brought up with management, and they were resolved quickly and graciously. Very much appreciated!

I can't wait to stay here again and explore more of this amazing property.

Room Tip: The Alfred, Lord Tennyson Suite was spacious, as it has a sitting room with a second fireplace! The...

this was our second time back to the Rivertown inn and this time we were blessed to be able to stay in the oscar wilde carriage house.... what a gorgeous room and experience.
the the whole inn is amazing, accommodating, beautiful and will not disappoint! .
the wine and cheese social hour is so good, and our in service breakfast to our room was top notch!!
I am a foodie, and this meet all my expectation and then some.
it took us some time to be able to get back here, but will now be a yearly getaway for us.

Room Tip: carriage house is is perfect for a quiet, private , romantic escape... pure luxury.

My wife and I could not have been more impressed with this place! It was worth every penny and then some! The best part is you don't have staff walking around while you are there. They are gone by 8 pm and let you enjoy the ambiance with the other guests. Even when they are there, you rarely see them. I have already set up our next visit!

Thanks to all at the Rivertown for a great experience!

Room Tip: They are all good.... don't worry about any of the choices!

From the first appearance to the "see ya next year" our experience at Rivertown was great. Can't wait to eat the next wonderful breakfast on the porch.

This was our second stay at the Rivertown Inn in the past two years, and once again, the bar has been set very high. We stayed in the Lewis Carrol room and loved it! The weather was amazing for St. Patrick's Day and as a result, we were able to enjoy the social hour (complimentary wine, cheese, crackers and meat) on the lovely porch. Breakfast Sunday morning was also served on the porch and it was outstanding! Chef Ray served us this go-round and his menu was fantastic.

We have stayed on the third floor for both of our visits and perhaps next time we will try a room on the second floor.
