Molten Chocolate Cake With A Silky Cinnamon, Orange And White Chocolate Cream


Garlic Studded Lamb Rack

Lamb isn\'t everyone\'s cup of tea! Hopefully this recipe will help. It is an easy recipe which relies on the flavor of the products used instead of complex techniques. In England, Sunday is roast day and I would love to go home one day and cook this for


Pea Soup With Minted Chicken Quenelles

Pea soup is very popular in England and is often served with smoked ham. This pea soup is bright, light and summery. Mint and peas are also a classic combination so by making the minted chicken quenelles you will get the mint flavor in to the soup.


Warm Potato Salad & Home-smoked Fish

Potato salad is a common food for summertime picnics but there are ways to enjoy it even in the winter. Chef Ray Wyatt with Rivertown Inn, has a warm winter version of the summertime favorite.


Italian Lamb Stew

This is a very simple and tasty lamb stew. Perfect for the cold winters and a delight served with crusty bread. With the addition of fresh orange and vinegar we add a classic Italian combination and a unique flavor profile.


Shrimp Hot Dish

Chef Ray was recently challenged to create a hot dish using shrimp by Channel 5′s Twin Cities Live. He competed with other chefs in the twin cities area to create the best new hot dish.


Cornish Pasty

Chef Ray loves to share the foods and flavors of his childhood in England with our guests. The Pasty is a pastry filled turn-over which looks very similar to a Calzone. It is believed that it originated as a lunch for the miners in Cornwall, England.


Baked Figs With Crushed Amaretti

This is a simple and classic dessert from Italy. If you have the ingredients at hand this is a quick dessert to whip up. A great summer dessert, which is complimented by a nice glass of amaretto.


Coconut Rice Pudding

This fantastic recipe makes a perfectly sweet dessert and is incredibly simple to make. It has just the right amount of coconut, honey, and maple syrup to make it fun and interesting without being too different.


Beef Rendang

Beef Rendang is a spicy beef dry curry with coconut. For those of you who are unable to attend the wine dinner, this recipe is a way for you to bring a little bit of Southeast Asia home with you. Enjoy!


Thai Beef Salad

This is the perfect salad recipe if you\'re tired of making the same old salad. Yam or Yum (salads) are an important part of the Thai diet and usually accompany every meal, this salad has typical flavors of Thailand giving it a bright and unique flavor.


Beef Balti

Indian food is well known here in the U.S. but you might not know it\'s the most popular type of food in England. Ray Wyatt, Rivertown Inn Chef, cooks up a curry recipe that is one of England\'s most popular.


Chocolate & Raspberry Terrine

A terrine is a long rectangular form used to make Pâté, so basically it is just the name of the form or shape of the finished product. If you do not have a terrine form, you can use a bread or loaf pan.


Fig & Marzipan Tart

The fig is one of the first foods that humans figured out they could grow on their own. Chef Ray Wyatt is taking the fruit from the ficus tree and turning it into a tasty treat you can eat year round.


Pork Chops And Salsa

Summer grilling is more than just hot dogs and hamburgers. Chef Ray Wyatt has the perfect pork grilling recipe for you.


Grilled Sesame And Ginger Game Hen

As they say….\"it tastes like chicken\"…but it\'s not! Grill up a delicious Sesame and ginger game hen and serve it with mango salad.Yum! A game hen is basically a young chicken or also known as Cornish game hen. The meat is more tender and a little sweet


Charmoula Halibut

Charmoula is a Moroccan paste and even though the list of ingredients may seem long, it is very easy to make. The paste is primarily used for fish and although this is the most classic use, it is also great to spread on lamb racks and pork.


Ginger And Vanilla Poached Pineapple

A light and delicious pineapple dessert. Perfect for summer!


Whole Citrus Cake

You will be surprised at the amount of moisture and mouth watering flavor that this cake contains. The actual making of the cake is a little unusual as you actually use whole citrus fruits (skin and all!).


Fresh Mango Salad

This is a great summer salad and the perfect side for grilled fish and meats. The flavor profiles are that of Thailand with the combination of sweet and spicy.


Healthy & Wholesome Flaxseed Muffins

These muffins are a fantastic, healthy way to start your day. You can also make a wonderful gluten free substitue for those with dietary restrictions.


Asiago Cheese And Pistachio Twills

A great small appetizer or the perfect small bite for gatherings of any kind! Perfect for holiday entertaining


Cherry Maple Scones

A delicious scone, a perfect additional to breakfast or afternoon tea.

Top Notch B&B!

My husband and I have not stayed at a B&B before. We were not sure what to expect but leaving Rivertown Inn, we are pretty sure we will become frequent visitors to B&Bs in the future and they have set the bar pretty high! From the moment you enter to the moment you leave, you are treated like royalty. The house's exterior and interior are immacuately cared for, designed professionally and no attention to detail has been left out. We stayed in the Jane Austen suite and what a true delight. All these little touches in the room ensured we knew who Jane Austen was and helped us learn more about her. The FOOD was EXCELLENT. Their chef has such a great sense of humor and met my gluten free needs. It was just the best -all natural, organic and he described everything with such fervor and delight. We will return for sure. Thank you Rivertown Inn for a wonderful experience!!

A night to remember

My boyfriend surprised me with a night at this Inn. We got there right before social hour and enjoyed some delicious complimentary wine. The grounds were beautiful, with many places to sit and enjoy the company of just whom you're with or of other guests. They have a lovely fountain and a gazebo so the bugs can't get you. The place would have been amazing just for this, but they went above and beyond to help my boyfriend decorate the gazebo with rose pedals, candles and champagne. He proposed at this Inn and it was the most amazing weekend of my life. The trip ended with the best breakfast I have ever had from the chef at the Inn. It was a 6 course breakfast - he even changed one item for me because of an allergy. The Inn is clean, beautiful and has something new to look at with every turn. It would be impossible to regret your choice to book at the Rivertown Inn!

50th anniversary celebration

Seven of our family stayed at the Inn on 6/24 to celebrate our 50th anniversary. The accomodations were perfect, as was the weather. The staff were very accomodating, and the breakfast was probably the best we have ever had -- anywhere! The chef even made a special menu for the people that had food allergies. We have stayed at quite a number of B & B's and this is by far the best. We definitely would stay here again.

Luxury with blissful style

What better way to walk into Victorian luxury than to stay a night at the Rivertown Inn. Your evening begins with historic tour followed by being taken to a room that is true to the famous writer of the times' crescendo. Following was a blissful social hour with hors d’oeuvres and wine. After a night of sound sleep you’re awakened to coffee and a steam shower. As one makes their way down to the main level a multi gourmet breakfast is served with utmost attention to detail with added love to make your stay that much more sweeter! Much worth the price and forever a romantic memory to cherish!

Anniversary Tradition

We discovered the Rivertown Inn 6 years ago. It was such a beautiful place and a special time for my husband and I, that we have made this our anniversary tradition. We come back the same weekend every year! If you are looking for a sanctuary to find peace and stillness from the craziness of life this is it. The owners go our of their way to make everything as special as it can be and the staff do all that they can to make sure your experience is wonderful! It is located only 6 blocks from the river and main street, so you have access to all kinds of things if that is what you want and yet far enough away to feel you are in another world. I look forward to this time away throughout the whole year.

A grand experience

We stayed recently at the Rivertown Inn in their "Oscar Wilde" suite, and found it to be a truly sensory experience. The bathroom was magnificent; the tub was large enough for two adults to be comfortable in, the shower had a waterfall and handheld faucet, and was a steam bath as well. There was a wall gas fireplace to ward off any chill that felt delightful during a bath. The room was very well appointed and extremely neat and clean. The staff was terrific, helpful in every way, and the breakfast was phenomenal. The chef came out with each course and explained to those of us at that seating what we were eating and how it had been prepared. Several of the guests dining with us had stayed there previously. The downtown area is close to the Inn and is a charming antique and specialty shop area. We would definitely recommend this inn and look forward to returning.

Must-Have experience!

The Rivertown Inn was everything I hoped for and more! The historical themed rooms are spectacular and the upscale food is devine. There is so much to look at and so much to take in. I enjoyed every square foot inside and out. A little pricey, but the experience is worth every cent. It is a great lacation just a few blocks from beautiful downtown Stillwater, which has so much history in itself. I actually live less than an hour away and the few times I've been there, I felt like I was on a faraway vacation every single time.

Best B & B in Stillwater, MN.

My wife and I celebrated my birthday by staying at the Rivertown Inn last night. What a wonderful B & B (read: treasure). Two things we both noticed right away: First the Rivertown Inn is impeccably clean. And second, it's very obvious that a lot of time and effort has been invested in the decorating of this gorgeous B & B. Upon arrival, Innkeeper Marty gave us the grand tour...making us feel as if the Inn was ours for the night. Very nice touch! Last, but by far not the least, this morning Chef Ray treated 6 couples to the most fantastic "several" course breakfast. We really enjoyed how he'd explain each course in detail as the dishes were brought to our tables. Each course was a unanimous "loved it" by everyone. (Chef Ray even came out with a lit candle and then sang Happy Birthday to me with his deep, beautiful voice.) Thanks to everyone at the Rivertown Inn for a wonderful birthday celebration. A great and memorable birthday at a 5 star B &B. Dale & Julia Peterson.

Pampered and relaxing!

We enjoyed being pampered while staying at the Rivertown Inn. Though we were left with relaxing, quiet privacy, we were pampered also with thoughtful extras: cheese/crackers/fruit tray in the evening, and amazing bed and bathtub. The breakfast and hospitality was above and beyond!

Rivertown Inn

Very romantic, one of the best B&B's in Minnesota, this was are second visit to Rivertown. everything was great the only thing I think could improve was the innkeeper was not very informed about certain items, also she was not very prepared and could not answer questions she seemed rushed and un professional

You have to stay here! So Romantic!

What a beautiful inn. Each room is an amazing palate of rich colors and comfy furniture. The food was incredible and introduced to the table by the chef himself. All of the food is freshly made with ingredients just gathered from the chef's garden that morning. The staff are very accomodating and genuine. I cannot wait to come back.

wonderful

I stayed from april 27-29, 2011- single gal. Two nights in the christina bedchamber (bed was a little too soft for me) and one night in the Jane Austin suite (toilet in bad spot if you are really tall). Other than that = BOTH ROOMS WERE AMAZING. The breakfast was wondering and healthy- very tasty. The staff were wonderful- they make you feel like its your house, very friendly. They make you feel like you have free rein through out and only 4 blocks away from main street. planning on returning in june for my 30th birthday and in july for my mother's 50th birthday. VERY nice retreat for the weekend!

Pure Romance

The literary themed rooms were fantastic. We stayed in the Agatha Christie room in the carriage house. Very romantic, set up like you were on your personal rail car on the Orient Express. The service was phenomenal, very attentive but unobtrusive. The food was great, especially the three course breakfast all with locally sourced foods. The amenities were luxurious, the steam shower and the whirlpool bath were perfect. It was a perfect romantic weekend.

We loved our stay at the Rivertown Inn. The accommodations were fabulous and each room has its own special theme decor.The staff was both friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed the evening social hour. It was a great chance to meet other guests and it was complimentary. The breakfast was terrific. We look forward to staying here again.

Dan and Jaki ~ Buffalo, Minnesota

I had planned a trip for myself and my wife, maybe our last trip for a while, as she is 8 months pregnant, to head for Stillwater, and drive the river valley south through Wisconsin to Winona, Minnesota, then back north through the Minnesota side of the river valley. I researched places to stay extensively, particularly Bed and Breakfasts, as this was going to be a two day drive. The Rivertown Inn is the best decision I could ever have made. We're no history buffs, but we know the finer things when we see them, and the Rivertown Inn is the finest. Every detail in the home has a spectacular quality, whether it be the original parquet floors, or an antique, hand carved poster bed or hutch, or the fancy wall paper, or the fine bath soaps. Nothing could top the quality of our stay. It was so much more than any web pictures can describe, because the love that went into the restoration and construction of this magnificent home cannot be felt in a picture. I recommend a stay, for no less than one night of your life, at the Rivertown Inn in beautiful historic Downtown Stillwater, Minnesota. The city of Stillwater is a thriving community, and nothing could be a better business addition than this fine Bed and Breakfast. Top notch! Jaki and Dan Olson from Buffalo, Minnesota have truly enjoyed their stay, and really want to congratulate you on a beautiful business you have. Much love, and thank you. Dan and Jaki Olson

Jacqueline and Mark

I dont even know where to begin! It is my favorite spot ever! When you think of relaxing,cozy, clean, romantic,friendly,you will automatically think of here, the Rivertown Inn. We were referred to this place from a client of mine, and we have stayed 3 times now. We talk about it all the time to people. We celebrated 2010 Valentines Weekend here, and our 3rd yr. anniversary, and as a gift, I got Mark and I a weekend away after graduating "Cop School". If you decide to stay, you can call and talk to anyone about it, but I want to please make sure you meet Mary the "Head Housekeeper". You will love her! She is so sweet and she gets just as excited about you coming as you are to go there! She makes you feel like you have always known her. We had only stayed once and she remembered us, so she came to our breakfast table and gave me a hug, and said "You're back! It's so good to see you again!" Amazing! Just Amazing!!!! Please go and enjoy yourself here! You won't ever have a better experience at another B&B. Jackie- Wyoming MN.

Pure Norman Rockwell

We have stayed at The Rivertown Inn twice. It was a wonderful experience each time. Stillwater is pure Norman Rockwell...kids going down a steep hill on sleds, church bells ringing up the street. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast is awesome. "FIRST CLASS" comes to mind when describing our stay at The Rivertown Inn. We are looking forward to staying again.

Romantic Inn in Stillwater, MN

My husband and I love staying in the upper suite of the carriage house - the Oscar Wilde suite. The privacy is second to none, and the bathroom is meant to be shared and lingered in. Delicious breakfast, beautiful gardens...all in all the best, most romantic Inn in Stillwater!

Amazing!

My husband and I have stayed at a few Bed and Breakfasts in the past and this one by far surpasses all of them. The Rivertown Inn is absolutely breathtaking. The inn, atmosphere, decor, and rooms are like no other B&B I have stayed in before. The hors d'oeuvres and wine were a great way to meet other guests and the 3 course breakfast by their personal chef was amazing. We stayed in the Lord Tennyson Suite and it was beautiful. It has a separate cozy sitting room and a huge jacuzzi tub. Very relaxing and romantic. We took a quick peek at all of the rooms before we left and they all are beautiful. The only thing I would change is next time I will schedule a massage and stay more then 1 night! We visited in November and I can just imagine how beautiful the grounds are in the spring, summer and early fall. Beautiful water fountains, statues and sitting areas. We give the Rivertown an A+ and we will most certainly be back! The price may seem a little expensive but it was worth every penny.

Fall Get Away

My Partner and I spent an evening at the Rivertown Inn. We stayed in the "Browning Room" and found it clean, beautiful and spacious. The grounds are beautiful-gazebo, outdoor patio with comfortable rocking chairs and an outdoor space with table and chairs to eat. We would love to go back in the summer to enjoy the outside. Breakfast was tasty and the chief came out and explained each course, fresh baked muffin (wonderful and just the right size), rice pudding with sour cherries (excellent flavor), apple tart (I could have eaten two of them!) and a chicken sausage egg bake (moist and wonderful flavor). They also offer massage services and next time we will use this service. The only bad experience we had was having dinner in a restaurant named "Savories"-over cooked expensive food, there is another restaurant down the street Moxie's which will try next time. Stillwater was beautiful and worth the trip-Highly Recommended.

For our first B&B experience, this one will be hard to top! The setting is beautiful, the staff is very polite and accommodating, the gourmet food is delicious, and the rooms are charming and romantic. Everything was lush and cozy, warm and comfortable--a wonderful way to celebrate a relationship. Wish we could have stayed longer!

wished we could have stayed longer

our stay at Rivertown Inn was a pure delight - we brought our out of town friends with, boated on the St. Croix river, had dinner at Marx (just 2 blocks away), enjoyed a wonderful breakfast and then had to leave. The Inn is beautifully restored with private common spaces everywhere both inside and out. We would have loved to linger in the gaxebo overlooking the meticulously manicured gardens and participated in the "happy hour" but foolishly booked too much in that day. We will definitely return and leave plenty of time for sitting around. The staff was so pleasant and accomodating that they made our short stay even more enjoyable - it was clear that they were there to please us!

Best B&B I have ever stayed at!

My husband and I stayed at the Rivertown Inn for our 10 year anniversary. I was very impressed by the wonderful job the owners did of restoring this property. The wine and cheese reception was fabulous. They have a self serve wine bar where you can purchase from a wide selection of wines. The breakfast was outstanding, they employ a chef which is a nice touch. The location is close to downtown Stillwater which has many fun restaurants, bars and boutiques.

Our first, and our favorite!

This was our first B&B, and we have compared every Bed and Breakfast to Rivertown Inn, ha! The accomodations are like no other... the decor, the atmosphere, and the breakfast... We have stayed here twice, and are looking forward to a third time sometime this summer. We stayed in the Lord Byron Suite the first time, and in the Oscar Wilde Suite the 2nd time. Both are amazing (The bathroom in the Oscar Wilde is incredible, really). We have checked through almost all of the rooms, and I really don't think you could go wrong with whatever room you choose. There is more privacy in the Carriage House, and the Lord Tennyson is probably the other most private(if it's a weekend). We stayed in winter and went skiing one day at Afton, and arrived back to the cozy room. And we stayed in the Summer, and the gardens were a joy to walk through, and breakfast on the porch was wonderful. Also, Stillwater has wonderful restaurants. You can always ask the Inn Keeper for recommendations! It is a little bit of a walk (uphill/downhill) to get to Main St., so you probably will need to drive (unless you don't mind the hike). The Oscar Wilde Suite was a little toasty in the summertime because of all the fancy lighting. Perhaps it may be nice of them to add a mini fan, or to bring one yourself. Wintertime I think it would be even more perfect. The social hour is fun and yummy. Both times we've stayed, we stayed for 2 nights in a row... which I highly recommend. Staying one night would just not be enough time to enjoy the room! Good thing they accept Free Night certificates! (At the time I wrote this review, anyhow). Writing this now... I can hardly wait to go back... Way too excited! :)

My husband and I just celebrated our first year anniversary in the Agatha Christie Orient Express Suite; it was Fabulous!!!! The shower and whirlpool were awesome and the bed was so cozy we didn't want to leave. I've already booked for another night this summer and next year. The wine and cheese hour was lovely as well as the 3 course breakfast. The grounds add to the ambience; these people really care. Thanks for such a great time. L & J

Amazing Retreat!

This is a really wonderful Bed & Breakfast: the kind that will totally satisfy the expectations of the most discerning and experienced B&B'ers, AND charm the pants off of cynics like us. My husband and I were desperately in need of some R&R, but we're not much for doilies. Or relaxing. The innkeepers, spacious quarters, wonderful breakfasts, cheeseboards and wine... well... I don't know that we've EVER been more relaxed. Now, when we feel ourselves getting keyed up, we just imagine the Rivertown, and the blood pressure drops. We'll be back.

We stayed in the Oscar Wilde suite. Beautiful,dark, rich colors. The bathroom was incredible. It had a skylight over the hot tub, a walk in steam room/shower/rainfall shower, and a fireplace. We would go back in a heartbeat. In fact, we are already discussing going back next April for our 11th anniversary.

I heart the Rivertown Inn

I needed a relaxing getaway from a stressful week. The Rivertown Inn provided the ultimate in luxury and hospitality bar none. The room was charming and had an awesome whirpool jet tub, with complimentary bath amenities that were heavenly. The canopy bed was super cozy and comfortable for a wonderful night's sleep. They had a yummy social hour from 5-6 pm with complimentary wine, cheeses, crackers, and meats. The breakfast the next morning was a 3 course gourmet feast to die for. The staff and owners were so welcoming and friendly and accomodating I felt like I was home. I almost hate to share this secret of this wonderful B & B with anyone else. The only regret I have is not being there with "someone special" because it is a super romantic place. I will definitely go back again!

Romantic 6th Anniversary

We stay at Rivertown Inn every year for our anniversary. The service is always flawless. The breakfast is so romantic on their large porch with a beautiful view of their gardens and the sound of the fountain in the background. The rooms are all lovely and decorated to perfection. You feel as if you have stepped back in time with the beautiful decor.

Enchanting

From the moment my wife and I arrived to celebrate our 25th anniversary we were treated with extra special care. The bedrooms, common areas, and grounds were all immaculate. The social hour with complimentary wine & cheese was terrific. And the three course gourmet breakfast was out of this world. We stayed in the Jane Austen and would do so again. The only caveat is that the Austen bedchamber (as opposed to the more spacious and more expensive suites named after other literary figures), though fabulously decorated, was just a bit cramped. Double whirlpool was wonderful, though. We'll be back!

Romantic

If you are looking for a place that will refresh your spirit and make you feel like you are returning to the romantic place in your relationship, then this is the place. Rivertown Inn is exquisite, with details about every part of your stay. It begins with a wonderful reception of cheese, meats, crackers and wine that will delight you. Each room has a theme of an authour with beautiful arrangements to make you want to never leave. Then the morning breakfast....amazing! Each bite is a taste discovery. Chef Wyatt is wonderful. The inn is best when you stay for at least two nights...my personal opinion. A wonderful get-a-away for any couple who needs to escape the real world and relax.

My husband and I just stayed at the Rivertown Inn for our Anniversary. I have to say that I have stayed at quite a few premium Inns and that The Rivertown Inn is the very best that I have experianced! The rooms are beautifully decorated with very high quality antiques and gorgeous fabrics. The breakfast was the best meal I have ever had at a B&B. The grounds are simply lovely, and very relaxing to just sit and experiance all of the sights such as flowers and statues. We have already made reservations for our anniversary net year!

spectacular

spectacular Rivertown Inn I can't say enough about this unbelievable bed and breakfast. They exceed expectations on every level. My husband and I aren't easy to impress, but they managed to impress both of us! You've got to stay here. I just bought gift certificates to give as gifts. I know that my friends and family will love it as much as we did(staff, gazebo, gardens, food, comfy beds, posh decorations, wine and cheese hour, breakfast on porch in the sun, and the list goes on).

Nothing else compares!

Rivertown Inn As I had never stayed at a B&B or an Inn the first time I came to stay here I was unsure of what to expect...now that might mean to some I might not know what I am speaking of but I know fantastic service, delectable food, opulent splendor,and a great time when I experience it. I have now been here 3 times and each time has been as amazing as the first. The inn is done in the greatest of detail right down to the period-authentic wall and ceiling treatments. The staff consists of some of the best I have encountered including a fantastic innkeeper and 5 star chef who creates the most exquisite of dishes served in the beautiful dining room or on the veranda. You must, absolutely must stay here just once. I promise if you do you will visit again and again. I have tried to branch out to other B&Bs but nothing else compares.

InnSide Tip - When you head downtown...
Don't miss Luna Rosa's Trattoria for a romantic dinner (unless your enjoying a wine dinner by Chef Ray) Leo's for ice cream, shakes, and waffle fries, the park for a moonlit river walk, and the trolley for history...if you visit the Freighthouse do it for the outside, riverside dining and not the service or the food.
