Those looking for a truly historic Minnesota vacation or a getaway in Stillwater -- a city with a long and colorful history -- will want to indulge themselves in the accommodations offered by the William Sauntry Mansion. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this Victorian inn is within walking distance of the historic Main Street of Stillwater.
Built in 1881 by lumber-baron William Sauntry (a first cousin of entertainer Bing Crosby), whose life was truly a rags-to-riches story, this 7,000 square foot home reflects his eccentricities and penchant for opulence. The William Sauntry Mansion has been fully restored and guests experience modern comforts, combined with the nostalgia of Victorian splendor, for an unforgettable vacation experience - Minnesota lodging at it's finest.
Amenities in all rooms include: King Bed, Private Bath with Double Whirlpool Tub and Walk In Shower, Fireplace/Air Conditioning, Stereo/CD/Ipod connection, mini-fridge.
A four course breakfast is served to the room at the guest's option. A common breakfast is served at the original cherry dining room table, or on the front veranda weather permitting. At check in, wine/beer/non alcohol option and cheese reception is provided and can be enjoyed while relaxing on the Veranda, Terrace or in our gardens which include a replica of the Alhambra Palace Moorish Fountain and fern/hosta dale.
Tom and Sandy welcome you to the Sauntry Mansion. As innkeepers of the Sauntry since 1999, we will make your stay in Stillwater one of the most relaxing and enjoyable getaways you’ve had.
The Sauntry Mansion is one of 22 homes featured in the Larry Millett book, "Preserving Our Grand Homes, Minnesota's Own",
published in 2014 by the Minnesota Historical Society Press.
