By day this frozen castle glimmers with glacial blues and after dark the ice formations create a magical glow.

ENJOY WINTERTIME ACTIVITIES AND A COZY STAY
Snowshoeing is a great way to enjoy the Minnesota winters. It's easy to learn and you can blaze your own trail. See deer, rabbits, squirrels, and animal tracks as you meander your way through the St. Croix River Valley. Our Snowshoe Solitude Package will pick up at the Rivertown Inn and deliver you to one of the many scenic locations within 10 to 15 minutes from the Inn. Trek your way through a wintery park to find a bonfire and picnic basket lunch waiting for you. Enjoy a rustic lunch that includes artisan meats and cheeses with baguette, hot festive soup, and either Bailey's coffee or spiced wine to keep you warm and, of course, marshmallows to roast over the bonfire. We will provide you snowshoes, poles, maps, and a quick lesson, plus, water and trail snacks. You pack the layers of warm weather gear. Plan for about 1 to 2 hours of snowshoeing, plus time for your leisurely lunch. Don't forget to make a snow angel! More information can be found HERE.
MEET THE STAFF
LARRY LOYER – Inn Keeper and Operations Manager: Larry hails from Michigan and relocated to Stillwater in 2002. Larry's work experiences bring a so much to his role at Rivertown Inn: a deckhand in the Merchant Marines, Assistant to the Director of the Tibbits Opera House, Theatrical Booking Agent for Michigan Performing Arts, and a certified kitchen/bath designer. "At the Inn, everything must be shipshape, and I put on a show every day," says Larry. When Larry isn’t meticulously maintaining the inn or manicuring the grounds, he’s setting tables or graciously helping guests. When he’s not at the inn, Larry enjoys collecting postcards, building miniature dollhouses, researching local history and traveling the world. Larry is the Rivertown Inn historian and gladly shares details of the inn, and of Stillwater, with our guests. Larry and his husband, Eric, reside at the Inn.
