We had the best time planning and having our wedding (ceremony & reception) at the Water Street Inn. Allison was very helpful and straightforward throughout the process. She was always quick to respond to all of our questions, and it was great to have someone who knew the process and the venue so well. The space was beautiful, and the food was great. All of the staff were friendly and accommodating. Both my new husband and myself would highly recommend the Water Street Inn as a wedding venue!

I had my wedding reception at the Water Street Inn at the end of May 2014. I have to say that it went PERFECTLY. Allison Young is the person we worked with to coordinate everything. She is so attentive and answered all of our questions promptly (including the numerous questions we emailed as we thought of them) and made herself available whenever we needed her. I cannot stress enough how comfortable she made us and how reliable she was. She gave us a high quality reception and touched based with us a few times that night to ensure everything was going as expected. I felt we got great quality and great value at the Water Street Inn. I would recommend this venue to anyone for a wedding reception!
Seriously, if your wedding is near Stillwater check out this hotel.

Beautiful venue, great location. Value is ok for what you get, the food is good and portions were generous, however we did a plated meal and all feedback I have received was the food at our reception was cold to lukewarm at best. They were very understaffed as well, we had 1 bartender and 4 waitstaff for 190 people (of which midway thru dinner one server was fired for being intoxicated...) Our wedding planner there actually ended up bartending that night to help the one guy they had on, so i'd have to give her a thumbs up for working hard that night for sure. high turnover of staff seems to be an issue there as just about every time we called there in our 9months of planning we dealt with someone new, and had to keep going over everything for the new people. we also paid for additional late night snacks to be put out on the bar and realized the next day, that they had never put them out. Still waiting on a refund for those...
They were also very unaccomodating to our photographer who was trying to set up a photobooth (of which we paid a lot of money for) So our photographer ended up tearing down a table on his own, to get it set up. Our dj also had issues with them telling him he had the music too loud and they had guests from the hotel above complaining about the noise. Being that we were forced to rent just the 6 rooms directly above the ballroom, because those were the "only rooms" that would be affected by the noise supposedly, I found it frustrating and disappointing to have to deal with on my wedding day.
I would think that for a place that does so many events like this, that they would have it better organized/figured out by now.

My husband and I were so excited to book this place (Lots of meaning. Have spent our past 3 anniversaries and my husband proposed here). We booked a year and 3 months before our wedding day with Michelle, who was great, but she ended up leaving the company about 6 months later. Then, we worked with Tracey Jo, who was ok, didn't respond or communicate much. 1 month before our wedding she left, and our new coordinator was Robin. Things seemed to be going better and were on the right track. Until the day of the wedding. The ceremony chairs we ordered never showed up (turns out Tracey Jo had canceled them for some reason). The Inn was nice enough to let us borrow their chairs, 10 minutes before the ceremony was supposed to start, but made all my groomsmen carry them out. We only had 1 bartender, and it took about 30 minutes to get 1 drink. The dinner was so unorganized. Weeks before, I provided an xcel sheet that told who was at each table and who had what, and total and kind of entrees at each table. They just went by random tables, and kept asking people what they ordered, which most people didn't remember. And if someone was away getting a drink or something, they were skipped. Some tables didn't get their food for 45 minutes! My MOH and I went up to a male server because we hadn't gotten our food, and his reply was "Yeah. You weren't there" in a very rude manner. Besides the mess, the food was delicous. And they did compt some wine for the chair mistake. I left a message with the front desk to have Robyn reach out to me when she was free, and have yet to get a response. It would have been nice to receive a phone call, or even and email to follow up and apologize. But nothing. We're pretty easy to please. Not everything about our wedding venue was negative. It is beautiful, was set up nicely, huge dance floor and patio.

This historic inn was an amazing backdrop for our special day. The team was awesome -- they were responsive to our needs, including helping us with our meat raffle! The reception hall at night was prettier than I could have imagined. The soft lighting was perfect. We also got so many compliments on the food -- the steak and walleye were cooked perfectly. All of our guests were extremely impressed as too often, when cooking for 180+, the quality isn't there. Plus, it was a great value. For the rental of the reception hall, we also received the six rooms above it including the bridal suite. It was so wonderful that my husband and I could put our grandparents and parents up for the night.

We would recommend the Water Street Inn to anyone looking for a gorgeous backdrop with an attentive staff along the picturesque St. Croix river.

The water street inn was an amazing place to have our wedding! Everyone really enjoyed the fact that they were able to be in the reception hall, in the hallway, and also outside on the deck. Overall everything went smoothly and the food was abosultely amazing. I would advise everyone to get plated meals! We had salmon and stuffed chicken which were both equally great. This way everyone got enough to eat and nothing ran out, which happens at buffet weddings sometimes.

Water Street Inn was a beautiful place to have our reception. We could not have asked for a more perfect setting, there was seating inside, in the hallway and on the patio. My guests still talk about how great it was to not have to stay in the reception hall but still be with everyone. Traci Jo was extremely helpful throughout the whole process, I could not have done it without her!
