The Englishman's Carriage House of the
807 Harriet Steet South
STILLWATER, MN 55082
Truett and Jill Lawson, Your Innkeepers
You would have to describe us as early retirees, although we certainly keep busy with many projects, including the lodging businesses you see on this website.
We were married in 1967 in California, our home at that time, but have spent a good part of our adult years in Minnesota. Jill is a Registered Nurse...so take heart for any medical emergencies when you visit our Inn. Truett directed a denomination of churches for a couple of decades until his recent retirement. So you might say that we wish you good health in our Inn, for body and soul.
We operated the James Mulvey Inn for over 18 years. But as a transition in ownership of the Main House occured, we became excited about operating the two luxury suites in the Carriage House as a small and unusually private, boutique bed and breakfast. Hence the birth of the James Mulvey Englishman's Carriage House Inn.
People are amazed at what they find in this unique historical setting in Stillwater. "It's like a park. No! It's like a dreamscape", someone said. "You cannot believe that such an idyllic setting exists in the middle of the town of Stillwater." Our idea was to create a uniquely private inn where our arrangements and preparations allow you to feel welcome in our Inn without a social reception. The same applies to our off site breakfast. It is enjoyed by you and your loved one together- and when you want to enjoy it.
Jill is an expert decorator. Her feel for interiors, fabrics and furnishings is exceptional. Truett is an art historian, and collector. His collecting has taken him all over the world. Ceramics and midwest regional art are his passions. He is on the board of that American Swedish Institute.We sincerely hope you will consider our little Inn. We believe it well provide great satisfaction, romance or rest for you and your loved one.
