Spent a night at Aurora Staples Inn in Stillwater,MN with my bride as we celebrated 15 years. Beautiful home overlooking the St. Croix River. Peacock Room served our purposes perfectly. Great breakfast, good morning conversation and gracious host, Cathy. George Larson, Minneapolis, MN

The room was very spacious and historic with its Victorian era-esque decor. There was a 2-way fireplace with whirlpool tub, making it very romantic. There was an unfortunate mixup upon checkin, so we were not given a tour or the complimentary welcome. Breakfast was delivered to the room which was greatly appreciated.

This was our first foray into the B&B world and we couldn't have selected a better B&B to stay at. The home was absolutely exquisite and Cathy and Jerry, the owners/hosts, were magnificent. This B&B is situated in one of the best locations, being just a short walk down the hill to central Stillwater/activities. The B&B itself is a gorgeous... More

My husband and I spent a romantic weekend at this beautiful property. Cathy was a gracious host. We were in the Riverview Suite. It was a cute little room, clean and cozy. Decor was just like I had expected. The room has an attached porch with a swing (and heating!) There was a small bookshelf in the room. A nice... More

My wife and I had stayed at Aurora Staples before and had an excellent experience so we decided to go back. The service is excellent, both rooms we stayed in were very nice and well kept. The owners are very friendly and took time to explain the history of the mansion during breakfast. We would highly recommend staying here it's... More

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
