A wonderful experience. Not only was the inn beautiful but Cathy and Jerry gave it warmth. Looking forward to many more visits. The room was lovely and the breakfast was amazing. I will be recommending this lovely inn to everyone who is looking for a quiet little get away. My husband will be planning to make this a frequent get... More

I arrived in the dark, my first impression was "wow, this is really going to be nice". I had no idea how spoiled I would become. Aurora Stables is quiet, & relaxing. The downstairs fire place, music & library are lovely - a nice selection of books. Since I was a guest for a longer stay than many, I took... More

I went to the Aurora Staples after my dad died recently, and I needed some time to think things over and just grieve. I stayed in the Riverview Suite and loved every minute of my stay. Cathy and Jerry are wonderful hosts and made me feel like I was at home! (Except I didn't have to do dishes, or scrub... More

My boyfriend and I came to the Aurora Staples Inn for our first mini vacation. We had a wonderful experience. The place was very well maintained and the staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was phenomenal too. I would recommend this place to family and friends.

We had the pleasure of staying at the Aurora Staples Inn on Nov. 4th. It was a beautiful place to celebrate our 25th anniversary. We stayed in the carriage house and loved it. Very quiet, private, spacious, clean, and tastefully decorated. It was warm and comfortable on a rainy evening in Stillwater. We will definitely return in the future. I... More

Lovely Victorian B & B ideally located close to the downtown eateries, bars and shops. Comfortable bedrooms and homey public rooms, especially the "family room" with the fireplace. Cathy and Jerry are gracious hosts who made us feel more like friends than guests.

The Aurora Staple Inn is everything a B&B should be. It is in a great location in Stillwater; boasts of excellent service (the owners are genuinely good people); exquisite rooms; and great food! My wife and I have stayed there twice and plan to return! Highly recommended!

This bed and breakfast exceeded my expectations. The rooms are a little small. The service and food was phenomenal. I stayed here the weekend if my wedding and cannot wait to go back for our anniversary. The atmosphere of every room has a Victorian charm that makes you feel like you're in a simpler time.

We were very impressed by your B&B and really enjoyed our stay. It was within walking distance of downtown and the weather was great so we just parked our vehicle and walked. The antiques throughout your home are very Impressive. It was very quiet all evening. We didn't even know there were others around us. Our room was nicely decorated... More

We live about 15 minutes away from the Aurora Staples Inn. It's a wonderful setting to unwind in. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! The inn is absolutely beautiful, with period furnishings, gorgeous decorating, along with fireplaces and double whirlpools. A perfect combination for a little getaway! Cathy was a warm, wonderful, and very welcoming hostess. Breakfast was so delicious. We loved... More
