My girlfriend and I stayed in the Carriage House, which is separate from the rest of the Aurora Staples Inn, and the room was absolutely beautiful and quite luxurious. The bathtub and fireplace made for an incredibly comfortable experience, and we even made use of some of the many amenities offered, including the CD player and board games. Cathy was... More

My boyfriend and I were looking to get out of town for a night and just relax, drink some good wine and eat some good food! We reserved the carriage house at Aurora Staples Inn and it was wonderful! The big tub and the fireplace - big comfy bed. It was so relaxing, we even played a game of scrabble... More

From reservation to walking out the door, this was the b&b experience I was hoping for. My husband and I were getting away just for 1 night because G&G had our 3 year old. We had a bandb.com gift certificate, and they accepted it without any questions. We brought champagne and I called earlier that morning to see if there... More

My husband and I stayed in the St. Croix suite to celebrate Valentine's day. The atmosphere was extremely relaxing, room was clean and decorated very nicely, and we LOVED the two-sided fireplace and large whirlpool in the room. The public spaces of the Inn were lovely and the food was delicious. Everything about our stay was easy, relaxing, and pleasant.

Was a very nice compfy cozy get away. Wouldn't mind coming back and staying again. The fireplace in the middle of the room was prefect. And the jacuzzi tub was great. I was a wrinkled prune when I got out. Laid in there so long relaxing. A great place for a winter get away. I didn't want to leave.

My husband and I like to get away for just one weekend a year. The Aurora Staples was a wonderful place to do it. Located on a peaceful street, but an easy walk to downtown (which is filled with delicious food and 5 antique stores that we found). Our room was beautiful with its own 4 season porch. The inn...

The Aurora Staples Inn is a superb and most relaxing place to spend any special occasion. Cathy and Jerry go out of their way to make you feel extra special. If you have a food allergy, they take extra special precautions so you can enjoy the extraordinary breakfast. I have a gluten intolerance and Cathy took great care of me.... More

My wife and I stayed there for our wedding anniversary, and the inn keepers were very nice and helpful. Know there info on local places to eat. And the breakfast was very good also. They also pay attention to food alerges and making sure my wife did not get any meat since she is a vegetarian.

We celebrated the weekend for our 10 year anniversary at Aurora Staples Inn because we wanted an experience reminiscent of our mansion wedding. This place was perfect! We stayed in the St Croix Suite and the see through fireplace is awesomely romantic. The architecture and décor is beautiful in every room of the mansion. Cathy and Jerry, the innkeepers are...
