Stillwater, Minnesota is the perfect base for enjoying activities along the St. Croix River like taking a trip to the renowned boating town of Bayport.  A new bridge, St. Croix Crossing, just opened connecting Oak Park Heights, Minnesota and St. Joseph, Wisconsin, allowing for convenient access for a weekend getaway.

Stillwater itself is a historic town often called "the birthplace of Minnesota," and has a rich pioneer history. Along with the Twin Cities, it is one of the three oldest major settlements in the state. Today you will find many retail outlets in the city, and there are plenty of local restaurants close to the hotel.  Guests can also unwind with an adult beverage at the Lift Brewing Co. or St. Croix Vineyards Winery, located right down the street.
