My sisters, sister-in-law, niece and I were doing a shopping trip to Stillwater and decided to make it into an overnight at Aurora Staples. We had a terrific time during our stay. The Inn including the rooms & carriage house are lovely and very clean. The amenities such as appetizers & wine at check-in, the fire in one of the... More

My husband and I stayed in the Carriage House and were absolutely in heaven! Beautiful furnishings, oversized shower, plus a relaxing whirlpool. It was a chilly March day so we also made use of the three sided fireplace. It is a romantic setting and we were happy to have breakfast delivered to our room rather than having to eat at... More

My husband and I just spent two nights at the Aurora Staples Inn. We stayed in the Riverview Suite, and loved it! Our room was very comfortable and clean. We enjoyed the wine and cheese at check-in, and the three course breakfast was excellent both mornings. I loved the whirlpool bathtub in our room and having fresh coffee delivered to... More

We enjoyed a very relaxing weekend at Aurora Staples Inn. Our group of 3 had plenty of space in the Giverny room and enjoyed the wonderful breakfasts. It was great to hear about the history of the house and meet new people. Stillwater is full of wonderful restaurants and shops and we were able to walk downtown within minutes to... More

Our friends our veteran B & B regulars and they say this was the best ever B & B. Great atmosphere, detailed staging, wonderful rooms with all the amenities while staying true to a Victorian style. Every detail right down to the table setting, the relaxing music and the wonderful breakfast were nothing short of fantastic. If you are like... More

We loved all the special touches, and felt so pampered. The Carriage House was such a lovely, relaxing retreat from our busy schedules. The innkeeper, Kathy, was so welcoming and made us feel right at home. We loved the comfy bed and cozy fireplace!

We felt pampered and well cared for, as we enjoyed the first night of a weeklong vacation. The atmosphere and personal service, was such that we felt like we could unwind and de-stress immediately. Highly recommend the Aurora Staples Inn to everyone.

My husband and I wanted a relaxing and romantic getaway. We were not disappointed! We stayed in the Carriage House, which was absolutely beautiful. We were treated to wine and hors d'oevres when we arrived. We enjoyed having breakfast delivered to our room. Service was awesome and location was great. We were able to walk to downtown. Great place!

I was impressed from the moment we arrived at Aurora Staples: we were taken right up to our room, given a quick lay of the land and left to our own devices with a suggestion to come down for free wine and appetizers whenever we were ready. The fireplace in the main room was roaring and soft music was playing... More
