Sisters Getaway! Aurora Staples Inn was beautiful. Elegant. Relaxing. Very quiet. Our room was amazing! Bed was super comfortable. Our favorite is the wrap around porch. Coffee available all hours. Breakfast was a delightful surprise. Cathy was fun to visit with. She shared the history of this amazing house and gave us tips about local shopping. We would LOVE to... More

We stayed in the St. Croix room and found it charming and very comfortable. Cathy and Gerry were wonderful hosts and made our stay memorable. The breakfast served was not only beautifully presented but absolutely delicious! Thank you so much for a wonderful 40th anniversary weekend! Janet and Bob W

This is a top quality bed and breakfast. We weren't able to arrive during the specified check-in time and they were flexible with us, I also have food allergies, so they remembered and made me food I could have. There were a couple empty rooms the night we arrived so we got to upgrade to a higher valued room for... More

The room was beautiful and very clean. We enjoyed the breakfasts each morning. The sun room attached to our bedroom was very relaxing. There was a love seat swing that was extra relaxing. Loved it and we will be back.

This inn was a lovely retreat for me and my girlfriends. The accommodations are beautiful--clean and comfortable. The food is fantastic! My favorite thing was early morning coffee delivered to my door! Off-street parking and within walking distance of downtown shops and restaurants. Cathy (we didn't meet Jerry) was warm and kind and treated us like family. I would highly... More

My wife and I spent time here after Easter this past year. We are both pastors and enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere of the Aurora-Staples Inn. We were able to walk to downtown (thought it may be a bit long of a walk for some) and experience Stillwater on foot for the most part. Breakfast was great, and tasty everyday.

My wife and I stayed here this past weekend and had an wonderful time. The inn is stunningly gorgeous and meticulously maintained, down to the smallest detail. The accommodations were lovely, the breakfast was scrumptious, the service was terrific, and Cathy and Jerry were gracious hosts. We will definitely be returning!

The house is very nice! Clean common areas and clean guest rooms. They also have parking spaces that are not on the street which is really nice. The hosts are so kind and welcoming! When you arrive they give a tour of the place and offer a drink with a small appetizer. The breakfast was super yummy! They brought coffee... More

We spent 2 nights here on our honeymoon 10 years ago and decided to spend 2 nights again to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. It's quiet, clean, historically accurate and quaint. The room was beautiful, the breakfast fantastic and the Innkeeper Cathy is delightful and accommodating. A very special experience again!

I brought my wife Debbie to Aurora Staples to celebrate our 33rd Anniversary. This Bed and Breakfast really was the perfect choice for a romantic getaway. The rooms are very beautiful with charming Victorian decorations and furniture. Cathy and Jerry are very gracious hosts and made our stay a wonderful experience. The gardens are very beautiful also. The mansion was... More
