Amazing minimoon destination!

5 on August 27, 2014

We had never stayed at a bed and breakfast before, and were so pleased by the overall experience. The breakfast was amazing, and it was so filling that we never needed lunch. The complimentary wine and cheese were delicious and the perfect afternoon snack. The room was clean, quiet, and so relaxing. It was just what we were looking for!

Awesome experience!

My wife and I stayed in the Cadiz Garden Suite and it was awesome! This was our first time at a bed and breakfast lodge and we didn't know what to expect. The experience and privacy was great, along with the spacious room and private balcony, we couldn't ask for more. Our host was also very accommodating and helpful with our questions. We will defiantly be back in the future to have some alone time together and we will stay in the Cadiz Garden Suite again!

Peaceful oasis

4.8 on August 26, 2014

We enjoyed our stay very much. Rita was a wonderful host. The amenities were nicer than we have found at other B&Bs (e.g. Balcony with seating, in room hot tub, bottle of wine).

Very Clean

3.6 on August 20, 2014

We enjoyed our stay at the Elephant Walk. Rita sees to the smallest details, and it was very clean. The room was a little more expensive than we would have liked to pay, but there were lots of extras included (wine, cheese, bath salts, coffee!). There was something interesting everywhere we looked (my husband called it cluttered, but I think it was more charming). Gardens were very nice.

Best B&B in Stillwater

I was only sad that we didn't stay another night.

Girl's getaway

4.8 on August 17, 2014

We booked 2 rooms for a girl's getaway and the rooms were nice with unique decor. The woman in charge was kind & sociable. The tray of cheese & crackers when we arrived was wonderful and breakfast was amazing!

Perfect mini Honeymoon

4.8 on August 17, 2014

We enjoyed our stay here a lot. It is a unique B&B, just a short walk from the Main Street. We would definitely recommend the room with the rooftop garden patio, it is well worth the extra money. Everyone was friendly and breakfast was quite impressive.

Amazing as always

4.0 on August 09, 2014

The place was very quirky and fascinating. It seemed we were always on a treasure hunt. It was a nice surprise to be treated to a bottle of whatever we wanted each afternoon and a gourmet breakfast each morning. Great hosts!

A beautiful garden room

What a memorable experience staying at the Elephant Walk Bed and Breakfast in Stillwater, MN. Rita greeted us as we arrived and made us feel at home the minute we walked through the door. We stayed in the Cadiz Garden Suite and found the room and private garden outside beautiful and relaxing. Our Breakfast was served at 9:00am the next morning which was exceptional fabulous flavor and presentation. The gardens on the property are relaxing and offer many different sitting areas to enjoy.
