Rivertown Inn is filled with period antiques and the extraordinary details that one would expect at the finest European hotels. Magnificent stained glass windows, fourteen working fireplaces set in Victorian-era mantels, vintage light fixtures and crystal chandeliers, intricate 130 year-old parquet floors, plush oriental rugs, hand-painted wallpapers, and a carved Gothic wall in the dining room are just a few of the features certain to exceed even the most discriminating visitor's expectations
Owners JEFF and JULIE ANDERSON purchased Rivertown Inn in 1999 with a vision of reviving this architectural treasure and reinstating its place as a landmark property in the charming riverside community of Stillwater. Inspired by their passion for fine antiques, gourmet food and wine, historic preservation, music, gardening and literature, the Andersons have lovingly and meticulously restored the Rivertown Inn to its original grandeur while retaining its Victorian charm and elegance. The Andersons invite you to experience the romance and luxury among the architectural delights of the Rivertown Inn.
