Best Kept Secret in Stillwater – My wife and I were amazed by the food and the service, I don't like to write reviews........all I'll say is my wife and I will be going back, I can't believe I didn't know of Charlie's beforehand.......I can't stop telling my friends about this place!!! Truly notable beverage menu with hand crafted cocktails featuring artisan liqueurs and house-infused spirits. Try something from their extensive whiskey list (over 40) or the huge wine list. Wines are priced only $15 over cost and many of these wines are less than you can get at a liquor store. Atmosphere is very relaxing and the live music in the pub was a great after dinner treat. Staff is spot on and I can tell they have had some serious training.
ARM PIT – This place smells. It is run down. The furniture is uncomfortable. The dining room service at breakfast was really bad. It is noisy in the rooms on the river side due to traffic crossing to and from Wisconsin on the adjacent street. On the flip side, the river side has a nice view of the St. Croix Valley and it is cool to look at the bridge. The hot tub was great too. This would be a great place to stuff the rooms with drunken frat boys. But if you're celebrating your anniversary, you'll need a good divorce attorney.
All the stylish excesses of the Victorian era wrap guests in splendor. – The Scene
Big and grandiose, with antiques and high ceilings covered with the original tin panels. There's a large sitting area with comfortable chairs in front of a massive fireplace. When it's warm, sit outside on the lavish patio overlooking the St. Croix River. The staff is helpful and always smiling. Since the hotel itself is small, the typical bustle is absent.
The rooms have rich brocade wallpaper, antique furnishings and still more high ceilings. The decor may be bold for some tastes, but it certainly exudes luxury. All rooms have whirlpools; some have fireplaces, some balconies. Suites are mammoth. The Grand Baron suites are perhaps the best value, with two rooms each the size of a standard hotel room. Furnishings are plush and comfortable.
I'd stay here again – The Water Street is perfect for a weekend getaway. The location is the best aspect about it. You can walk the river in the morning, shop in the afternoon and live the night life, all right outside the doors of the hotel. It is slightly over priced but its is a fair trade for the location. Dinner was average but the service overall was great. My favorite..... the Irish Pub located in the hotel with excellent live Irish music.
decent room for $95, but not $230 – The restaurant was super - both pasta dishes we had were superb! The room was way overpriced. It needed a lot of repairs: paint, cleaning, etc.. It was an odd mix of old and new, so the full ambience was hard to get. Very sparsely furnished. Very noisy - party in room next with slamming doors went well past 4am - not exactly romantic. The lobby was very nice, but the room was a dissapointment. So, I would recommend the restaurant, but for $230 you can find a MUCH nicer room elsewhere.
More details needed, but overall great! – My feelings when remebering our stay at this hotel are mixed. I remember it overall as an incredible experience, but it wasn't perfect. We paid $200 for a corner room that was noisy even when the windows were closed, but the beautiful furniture and luxurious hottub made up for that. It sounds kind of petty, but the reason we chose the Lumber Baron's was because the pictures of the beds on the website showed canopy beds with a sheer curtain surrounding the bed and flowing to the floor. The bed in our room was wonderful, but the bed curtain had been hacked off to the point where you had to leave it tied back because it would no cover the bed! It was also very uneven, and unattractive as we attempted to unfurl it. I loved the decor, though we wont return to pay those prices unless things are changed.
Beautiful – The suite we stayed in was wonderful. All the amenities- fireplace, whirlpool and a deck with a beautiful view of the river. Very close to the St. Croix Vineyards and Ammondts Apple Orchard. Great weekend getaway!
The Place to be... – I had a blast one year for my birthday, in downtown Stillwater. We rented a couple of rooms, and mine and my husbands was a room on the River...we were in heaven. Our friends were not so lucky and ended up on the street-side in a shabby run-down room. Even though they were both beautifully furnished, we found that the ceilings/walls needed a face-lift. The bed was the best piece, it was definately fit for a Queen...at the rate of $200.00 per room, it was just a tad over-priced. Otherwise, my husband, Ken and I would LOVE to go back there again. Thank You
