The Elizabeth Barrett Browning room at the Rivertown Inn in Stillwater.

If you want more than a historic room or a canopy bed and can pull off a blockbuster splurge, sink your imagination into the chandeliered late 1800s with richly appointed and theatrically transportive Carriage House Grand Suites at Stillwater’s Rivertown Inn. The Agatha Christie Suite — meant to feel like a night on the Orient Express — and the colorfully decadent Oscar Wilde Suite are especially popular with newlyweds with no intentions of leaving their posh cocoons. More modest rooms in the main house pay homage to other authors, including Lewis Carroll, Jane Austen and Lord Byron. A tasty bonus: monthly cooking classes. 306 W. Olive St., Stillwater; 651-430-2955;
