Destination guide

Stillwater shines on the banks of St. Croix

Elegant riverboats drift down the bends of the St. Croix River, past Stillwater's old lumber ports and al fresco waterside wine bars. Locals sip crisp Minnesota craft brews in the terraces there, while Historic Main Street buzzes with independent boutiques and bookstores and bean roasting-caf_s Some Stillwater vacation rentals are charming Midwestern cottages with timber porches out front, while others spill down the Wisconsin banks of the St. Croix. Others are rustic country cabins or family boltholes that offer doorstep access to the pretty walks of the Brown's Creek State Trail.

Things to do

Life on the banks of Stillwater

Be sure to bag your Stillwater vacation rentals on the bends of the St. Croix River if you're looking to be in the heart of the action. This is certainly the main attraction in town, hosting the boating ports, Historic Main Street _ perfect for that retail therapy _ and oodles of the hottest summertime dining spots. From there, you should also be able to snap selfies with the handsome Stillwater Lift Bridge, and the turn-of-the-century river cruisers that still glide through the currents. Locals wineries also beckon, from Northern Vineyards in the town center to St. Croix Vineyards on the outskirts.


The water's not still in Stillwater

With everything from small fishing skiffs to rumbling riverboats from the early 1900s still purring their way up and down the water channels of the St. Croix, there's hardly a quiet moment on the meanders of Stillwater. Be sure to join the locals on a classic cruise to see the wooded banks and historic iron-frame bridges that pepper the courses of the river around town, and don't miss the lazy beaches that line the municipal shores. Brewery tours and excursions to Midwestern vineyards are also great for travelers without kids in tow.


Stillwater beckons in summer and fall

You might want to dodge the icy Midwestern winter months of December, January, and March if you're looking to find the forests and creeks of the St. Croix River Valley at their most hospitable. Hitting town after May and before September means getting the wooded hills in full bloom, and the town's Main Street in full swing. Meanwhile, fall _ from September to October _ is a top time to search for Stillwater vacation rentals if you want to join in with the grape harvest festivities _ there's plenty of wine about then, too.

Natural features

Stillwater is a stepping stone into Minnesota

You'll be able to taste the beauty of the Midwestern backcountry even from the heart of Downtown Stillwater. The winding St. Croix River sees to that, passing many a vacation rental and restaurant as it wiggles southwards to join the mighty Mississippi. The paths of the Brown's Creek State Trail should be easy to access from your doorstep, offering long walks that pass elm and basswood groves to meet the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway. Once you reach that, keep an eye out for river turtles and eagles, wild wolves and rare black bears in the forests.
