Details, details, details….the Stillwater Lift Bridge

So many reasons to spend a night or two at the Rivertown Inn in Stillwater, Minnesota.  The luxurious surroundings, the locally-sourced ingredients our chef uses to create delicious breakfasts and social hour offerings, the gardens, the privacy, the relaxation….and being able to walk to downtown Stillwater.  I love Stillwater, and it’s changing.  This isn’t always a bad thing, but it’s something to pay attention to because what you see here won’t be around forever.  This first picture is taken from Pioneer Park, a short walk from the inn:

This picture is taken from the walkway along the St. Croix River:

Stillwater is adding a pedestrian walkway to the river from Main Street, which is scheduled to be completed by July, 2012 (take a minute to check it out here).  This is such a cool rendering of the new public restrooms and the walkway.  Make sure to scroll to the bottom to see it all.

We hope you’ll join us at the Rivertown Inn soon, and that you’ll plan on spending some time in the birthplace of Minnesota.  The many wonderful restaurants, the co-op, the bookstore, the countless interesting and unique shops lining Main Street and beyond…and the beautiful river.  It’s worth the short drive over.

  1. Julie I enjoyed your blog. The little Rejuvenation bat pendant light is so adorable! They have lovely pieces that can enhance many types of spaces. We are planning to visit on the 27th of April for our 5th anniversary. As an Interior Designer with an Art History degree , I have have always loved the Pre Raphhalites and was able to do research in England a few years back. You surely know that Dante painted his sister in his own paintings. If you like me bring some treats with me when we come, I have a 1894 edition of Dante Gabriel Rosetti by F.G. Stephens( another member of “the Brotherhood”), Dante and his Circle” collection of poetry and lyrics 1874, as well as a soft leather bound 19thC. of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens w/ a lovely sepia toned photographic image of Dickens as a front piece. I am looking forward to chatting with you about the lovely details you have infused into your B&B.

    • Hi Kathleen: What a fascinating note – thank you so much for taking the time to write! It’s so much fun when someone appreciates some of these small details. I’m so glad you’ll be joining us for your anniversary on the 27th of April. I look forward to chatting with you then. I’d love to see the books you mention, they sound gorgeous.

      Julie
