Wife and I recently stayed here. Everything was terrific! The whole building was decorated with wonderful items from Southeast Asia. Our room specifically, the Chiang Mai, was outfitted to the 9s with wonderful decorations and we had to take photos of everything. The merchandise downstairs was all very reasonably priced. The staff were fantastic, both in conversation and with service. We even got our flat tire addressed! Above and beyond. We hope to come back for all anniversaries in the foreseeable future.
Our one night at The Elephant Walk felt like sheer luxury - from the welcome of the hostess and the beautiful wine and cheese tray she served us, to the elegant breakfast we enjoyed the next morning. The attention to detail, from the gardens, interior decor, to personal comfort lifted this experience beyond the ordinary.
We stayed in the Raffles room at Elephant Walk to celebrate our first anniversary. Other couples were also celebrating. Rita remembered everyone's name and what they were celebrating, congratulating each in turn. She was a wonderful hostess and made amazing food for the three course breakfasts we enjoyed. She also made some good recommendations for places to eat in town. Mike was fun to chat with, especially if you enjoy tinkering and bikes - he built the tandem that sits outside! The room was tidy and clean with a great whirlpool tub, fireplace, and a fish tank. Chocolate, wine, and snacks are included and are a lovely touch. We would definitely recommend!
I booked rooms for friends and received excellent customer service in terms of communications to make sure that they were comfortable. I also toured the beautiful rooms stuffed with gorgeous Thai antiques and a gift shop. I will be back to stay myself.
We enjoyed our stay at The Elephant Walk Bed and Breakfast! We loved all of the items throughout the house, museum quality! The breakfast was outstanding! We look forward to staying here again soon!
From the moment we parked in their private lot to our private tour we were enchanted at the detail and care of this place. The rooms were immaculate and cozy. We stayed in the Lord Byron Suite and loved it. The 3 course breakfast was delicious. We cannot wait to go back!!'
This bed and breakfast is truly a one of a kind experience. The house is wonderfully eclectic and each room has a soul of its own. My husband and I stayed here on our wedding night and come every year for our anniversary. It's a place you can go and relax all day or just spend a romantic evening. And the service is unbeatable. From the wine and cheese that's waiting in your room when you arrive to the phenomenal breakfast you're served before you leave, the entire stay leaves you feeling refreshed and pampered. It is a bit pricey, but when you consider it's convenient proximity to downtown Stillwater and the exceptional service you receive, it's a steal! I hope my husband and I can continue going there for years to come. It truly is one of the highlights of our year. Thanks to Mike and Rita for creating an unforgettable experience!
The property is in a convenient location close to downtown and a short walk to the best ice-cream shop that we've seen in a long time, Nelson's Ice Cream. The inn is beautiful and the rooms are interesting, comfortable, and well maintained. The furnishings are all Thai and SE Asian - quite a change of pace in MN. The breakfast has multiple courses and is as interesting and delightful as the rooms. We love this place.
Awesome patio garden, bed so comfortable didn't want to get up, staff very nice and helpful, owner very nice, breakfast was delightful, enjoyed meeting new people as we all sat together at breakfast table and gardens were beautiful. This place is a must to stay at while visiting stillwater.
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.
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!
Lovely place to stay! Very clean and fun, interesting decor. The breakfast was amazing! Would definitely recommend to my friends and family. Beautiful grounds (koi pond), board games in the rooms, we felt very welcomed! Thank you!
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!
The minute we get out of the car I feel relaxed.The beautiful gardens with seating tucked away and the sound of the fountains are so welcoming and peaceful, the rooms are lovely and Rita and Mike are such warm and interesting hosts. We visit every year and always have a wonderful time.
This is a wonderful place to stay.....Very quirky with lots of wonderful items that the owners have collected from their travels.Very comfortable and exceptional service.Rita the owner goes out of her way to help with anything that needs booking or arranging. The breakfasts roll breakfast, lunch and dinner into one meal!Thank you Rita for making our stay so memorable.
Wonderful evening in Stillwater topped off by a night in the Art Deco Suite! Love the decorations n feel of this room. Enjoy the wonderful breakfast at Lowell Inn. Would recommend anytime!!
