Terrible service from shoddy owner 9/1/2008

We recently stayed at the William Sauntry Mansion when attending a wedding in Stillwater. We had problems right away when booking our room. I booked in 5 months in advance and when I called to confirm my reservations, Tom didn't seem to have any idea who I was...even though I had emails to confirm our communication. Reluctantly we signed up AGAIN for a room. When we arrived to check in, our room had been given to another couple staying there- even though OUR credit card info was holding it for us. Tom was flippant about the ordeal and offered us a different room that cost $50 MORE. I don't care how great the breakfast is or how spectacular the home is, if a B&B owner doesn't treat his guests with respect, he's running a pretty crappy business. We will not be staying there in the future and we will direct our friends elsewhere. Pros: good breakfast, beautiful home and wrap around deck Cons: SERVICE, Owner Tom more

Engagement Day 3/17/2008

This place is absolutely gorgeous! We stayed in the Joseph room. My fiancee and I had just been engaged that morning, and this place capped off an amazing day. The swedish shower and the double jacuzzi tub were the highlights. After enjoying both of them, we were completely relaxed! Pros: Decorative Room, Great Shower and Jacuzzi Cons: Expensive, Uncomfortable Bed more

Elegant, Romantic, Relaxing - Perfect! 9/30/2006

I arrived to the quaint sound of water sprays and silence. Although close to downtown (I think a six block walk), this place invites your instincts to slow down and relax. I was met at the door by Tom and offered to sign the quest book. We spent our first half hour in the green room downstairs where they had set out meats, cheeses, cider, and champagne, and chatted with Tom and a couple of other happy guests. Pros: Breakfast, Elegant Rooms, Friendly and Caring Owners Cons: Dinner in Downtown Stillwater more

Quiet, Cozy, Beautiful 9/27/2006

You can really tell that the owners take great pride in this B&B. Filled with lots of old world charm and antique pieces, it actually feels like a historical house, and not a hotel with numbered rooms and nameless employees. Tom and Sandy are more than willing to answer questions about the house's history and the surrounding area. It's the little things that really matter, and with care and great attention to detail the overall feeling is one of intimacy and relaxation. You just feel special, greeted with wine, cider and homemade bread. Then, in the morning coffee is served at 8:00, followed by breakfast in four courses. more

Beautiful inn, gracious hosts, delicious food 9/24/2006

We were guests at the Sauntry during a recent weekend and everything about our stay was wonderful. Having traveled as a consultant for ten years, I have stayed in thousands of hotels, and this is one of the nicest places I have stayed. The inn is beautiful: each room is unique, but all offer luxurious, spotless accommodations and wonderful amenities (such as whirlpool tubs, steam showers, and fireplaces). Tom and Sandy are gracious hosts -- very knowledgeable about the area, and happy to assist in any way to make your stay a pleasant one. Finally, the food is delicious and beautifully presented; in the evening, you will be treated to elegant snacks including wine and cheese, and in the morning, there is a delightful breakfast. Well done, Tom and Sandy. We look forward to our return visit! Pros: service, food, luxurious rooms more

O.K. but not great 9/20/2006

It was o.k. but from looking around, my wife and I definitely felt we could do much better on our next visit to Stillwater. We did not find the proprieters to be very friendly and felt we were a bit of a bother to them. more

Warm welcome-Romantic get away 7/9/2006

We had a wonderful visit to the William Sauntry Mansion. The ownwers, Tom and Sandy, were delightful hosts who went out of their way to make our one-day-stay fabulous. more

William Sauntry mansion 7/6/2006

If you're dying to get away to an overexpensive B&B where the owners took out their dog-eared copy of ""how to run a B&B"" then the William Sauntry mansion is for you!! Lacking any real personality, one can expect the formality associated with everything in it's place, including the period music continually playing, (like a death march) . Is it clean? Sure. Is it necessary to serve a dessert with breakfast? I think not. Save the dessert, Tom, and lower your price! more

Romantic getaway 7/10/2005

My husband and I stayed in the Butler's Cottage to celebrate our 1 month wedding anniversary and it was everything we were looking for! Beautiful, private, large room with our own garden to enjoy. When we arrived, Sandy greeted us at the door and offered us some tasty snacks to enjoy in the gorgeous common rooms - lovely cheeses, crackers, salami, almonds and olives as well as a white wine and lemonade! Our room had AC, a double whirlpool, mini fridge, fireplace and a comfortable bed. Breakfast was served in our room and we enjoyed it outside. Lots of fruit, a nice egg dish and even what tasted like homemade icecream for dessert! Very nice place and I would definitely return. Thanks Bob & Sandy! Pros: Romantic, Hospitable, Good food Cons: A long walk from town more

Wonderful wedding and many wonderful stays 5/16/2005

We have stayed at this B&B a number of times, we loved it so much we had our wedding there! The owners have always been incredibly friendly and helpful, their help was a real blessing on our wedding day. The rooms are lovely, we stayed in the Butler's Cottage, which is also very private. They even gave us a bottle of wine for our wedding night. And the breakfasts in the morning are amazing! I highly recommend a stay at this B&B! Pros: Wonderful service, Great breakfast more

Wedding night stay 2/3/2005

I had a horrible experience at the sauntry mansion. My husband and I stayed there on our wedding night. Our limo driver had gotten lost driving down there, and when I called to ask directions, the owner yelled at me, asking where in the world did I find this limo driver, had we all been drinking or what, and informed me, ""There's nothing more I can do to help you people."" When we arrived, I recieved no apology. We both felt very unwelcome at this bed and breakfast. We will not be returning. Pros: Beautiful rooms, Hot tub, Fireplace Cons: Owner was very rude more
