We celebrated our anniversary here because of a recommendation from a close friend. The Aurora Staples Inn lived up to everything we were looking for. Cathy and Jerry were wonderfully welcoming and friendly hosts. We really had the chance to relax and unwind in the carriage house for the evening. The gardens are beautiful and the house is well cared... More

My husband and I actually got married in their beautiful garden three years ago today. We come back every year and stay right around our anniversary. If you can book the Carriage House, it's amazing. I always joke with my husband that he can go back home to the city and visit me at the Carriage House on the weekends... More

This was our first experience at a Bed & Breakfast and it was excellent. The innkeepers, Cathy & Jerry, were very welcoming! We stayed in the Carriage House, which was separate from the main house, and was very quiet and peaceful. The room was very nice and had everything we needed for a nice getaway from everyday life. Cathy's breakfast... More

Perfect does not even begin to cover it. The room was amazing and well-kept, the breakfasts each day were filling, unique, and delicious, and the owners were so pleasant. My wife and I went to celebrate our first anniversary and we have decided that this will become a reoccurring trend for us. We would HIGHLY recommend staying here.

Beautiful inn and incredibly friendly staff! This was my first time ever using a B&B and loved it. It felt more like home versus cookie cutter hotels. Very comfy bed, nice bathroom and shower, very clean. I'll be back!

Beautiful place with just the right mix of privacy and conversation/information. Very professional feeling with all the comforts of home. We will definitely come back for a visit! The business of downtown Stillwater was just a few blocks away- with very good restaurants/bars and a big selection of activities to do.

I've stayed at B&Bs before, but the Aurora Staples Inn was my best experience. Not only is the home absolutely gorgeous and charming, it is impeccably clean; the breakfasts are gourmet; and the Innkeepers are the most gracious, delightful, welcoming and kind. I arrived very stressed and left two days later feeling completely relaxed, pampered, rejuvenated, and ready to face... More

We stayed in the Giverny room July 9-11, 2015. The room was spacious and sumptuously decorated with so many beautiful details that there was always something else to notice. This was also true of the entire B&B space in this glorious old Victorian home. The hosts were always warm and friendly, no matter the hour or the request. We made... More
