Hotels >Elephant Walk
The perfect getaway. This bed and breakfast is decorated from head to toe in Thai pictures, mirrors, furniture, etc. The yard is huge and full of nooks to sit and drink wine, with a coi pond and beautiful trees and flowers. Our room was cozy with a two person jet tub and a nice view. After our lovely stay, we forgot about the breakfast part, and it was the icing on the cake! Four courses, all delicious. I would definitely recommend this bed and breakfast and will be returning!
I am not one to write reviews however I think sharing my adventure is my responsibility.
If you are looking for THE best of experience then this B&B take the cake.
The house, Rita the owner, the rooms and all were one we will remember. I have stayed all lover the world
at wonderful places but I just love this place called The Elephant Walk in Stillwater,Mn.
I am an artist and color, and attention to detail is a necessity for me. The use of color and materials that you are surrounded with make this place beyond most people's experience.
I also loved the breakfast...This is what one might enjoy at a five star restaurant yet you feel a sense of family here.
I heard from a friend that Rita ,while living in Thailand ,had breakfast with the crowned prince every Thursday! It shows. Her stories are so much fun to listen to and I feel her motivation for this kind of service is just the expression of a great heart.
If you enjoy the regular...one that you may be able to tell toa friend and they too will have had the experience then stay some where else...But if you want to share a tale of your adventure then go to the Elephant Walk.
Each room invited me to stay...I will enjoy my next stay in the room where I can sit in the whirlpool shares a wall with the aquarium.
No where is it written that a B&B owner needs to offer such quality. The duvet cover in my room was a hand tailored 4 ply hand woven silk in the most beautiful green color.
It was a wonderful time only spoiled by the limit of a 2 night stay.
Cozy rooms, friendly hosts and wonderful food!. This was our first trip to Stillwater. We stayed in the Rangoon room, very cozy. Warm and inviting atmosphere. Loved the homemade crackers, cheese, fruit and wine left for us in our room. Fabulous breakfast and Rita was very kind and insisted on waiting on us. This B&B is not what you would expect in MN. Decorated with art and objects from Thailand. Lots to look at! We would recommend a stay at this B&B.
My favorite B & B.
My husband and I just got back from a trip to the Elephant Walk B & B in Stillwater, MN. We chose the Elephant Walk because the food on their website looked great and to be perfectly honest the 1st B & B I called was booked - good thing for us!
The food was fabulous! Rita and Mike were wonderful hosts. We stayed in the Chaing Mai room and it was beautiful. Everywhere we looked there was something to see and something interesting to read. The rooms were pleasing to the eye without being overwhelming as so many B & B's are. It was a friendly and inviting atmosphere everywhere we turned.
Both of us truly felt like Rita had welcomed us into her own home. Besides everything else, the little extras really made this the best B & B experience I have ever had. IN OUR ROOM WAS: a CD player with an assortment of CD's, reading lights beside the bed, a whirlpool tub, bubble bath, bath salts, candles, a gorgeous gas fireplace, a balcony, a small fridge filled with complementary drinks, chocolate goodies, and as if all of that wasn't enough, everyday we enjoyed a different bottle of wine, homemade crackers, and cheese right in our room!
I couldn't possibly rate this B & B any higher (and I am not one to over-exagerate). There are a number of B & B's in Stillwater, MN - that being said, I will definately come back to this one before ever trying another! Take my advice and stay at this B & B - You will not be disappointed.
An exotic bed and breakfast that makes you feel as if you're touring the world, one room at a time..
This lovely home was built in 1883 for the town's first jeweler. It has been lovingly restored by innkeepers Rita and John Graybill, whose love for the Far East is reflected throughout. Beautiful flower and water gardens surround the house, while inside guests will find a thought-provoking collection of antiques from Asia, as well as Europe and America.
Each of the four bedrooms is generously equipped with a double whirlpool bath, a gas fireplace and a sound system with CD player. The decor is as rich and exotic as the names of each accommodation--The Rangoon, The Raffles, The Cadiz Garden Suite and The Chiang Mai. A daily, four-course breakfast is served in the large formal dining room, and each night's stay includes a bottle of wine. In addition, complimentary champagne and alcohol-free beverages are served in the evening along with cheese and homemade crackers.
