We didn't know what to do for our 10 year wedding anniversary. We checked out a number of different B&Bs but this one stuck out. We had a nice outdoor patio, a super comfy bed, great appetizers in the room, extraordinary artifacts in the room. It was a perfect little get a way without having to travel to Timbuktu. The whole house was very comfortable and inviting. The hosts were fun to talk to and I can foresee a visit if not to just swing by and say hi. Thanks for a great home spot during our anniversary stay in Stillwater.

We stayed for our 20th wedding anniversary and this was our first ever B&B experience. The room was perfect and the dining and ambiance amazing. We will be back next year- huge Thank You to Rita and Mike!

My wife and I spent our wedding night here 6 years ago, and it is still our favorite B&B to visit. We'll definitely be returning here again and again.

Rita and Mike are great and pay attention to every little detail. The Elephant Walk is very charming and absolutely beautiful. The food was wonderful. I am absolutely spoiled.

The Elephant Walk in Stillwater is the best Bed & Breakfast I have ever stayed at. Most B&Bs have that old, antique feel to them, but The Elephant Walk didn't feel that way at all. I loved the fact that they didn't have any TVs or phones, so you're forced to actually relax. It's not that expensive posh relaxation, either. It's the magical kind where you feel like you're in another world. My wife and I stayed on our wedding night and were pleasantly surprised the next morning for breakfast- absolutely superb food! We were only planning on staying the one night, but ended up staying two. We plan to come back for our anniversary! The room, food, hospitality... No other B&B compares!

This was our 3rd year staying here and we love it more each time. Rita and Mike are wonderful and make us feel like family. We had a great time relaxing in the parlor and on the patio. The grounds are beautiful and peaceful. And the breakfast was amazing.

This place is such a gem. Our room was clean, cozy, and decorated so beautifully. There are so many small details throughout the entire property that every time you look around, something else pops out. Breakfast was outstanding! The scones were exactly how they should be (I know this because I am a professional baker), and again, there is so much attention to detail when it comes to the table settings. Rita is an absolute joy to sit and chat with, as she is knowledgable and just really down to earth. By fiance and I will be planning another trip to The Elephant Walk this fall, and we cannot wait!
