“Summertime is always the best of what might be.”
Summer is a beautiful season here at Rivertown Inn. There is so much coming up in Stillwater to tell you about: Summer Tuesdays offers live music in the park, an outdoor market and a movie in Lowell Park each week, right on the St. Croix and walking distance from the Inn. The Square Lake Film and Music Festival is one of the area’s best kept secrets, and the 83rd Lumberjack Days celebration is just around the corner. Read on for details and a special offer.

WHAT’S NEW AT THE INN
DINNER AT RIVERTOWN INN
Chef Maggie Wescott’s passion for creative, healthy food is now available exclusively for guests of the Inn. What could be more relaxing – and delicious – than checking in to your room and simply walking downstairs for dinner? Your dietary requests are all carefully considered, and your 3-course meal will be created especially for you. Wine pairings available.
And for a new wine with dinner … or just because … Rivertown Inn is pleased to offer Murphy-Goode wines, brought to us by winemaker and Minnesota native Dave Ready Jr. We’re particularly excited about the Cuvee Chardonnay that has been aged in barrels created from aged oak in Caledonia, MN.

THE BEAUTIFUL NEW BRIDGE: ST. CROIX RIVER CROSSING
