[stayed Dec 14 - 17] This was my husband's and my first time at a bed and breakfast and it was an amazing experience. We were looking for a quiet, relaxing retreat away from the cities for a few days, and Stillwater seemed like the perfect spot. We were right. Cathy and Jerry were so welcoming, the home was inviting... More

My husband and & I stayed at this lovely inn on Dec. 4 to celebrate our 50th anniversary. The surroundings are so lovely, decorated for Christmas. Our room was cozy with a fireplace and the hosts were so gracious. The food was exquisite and so nice to have coffee served to our room before breakfast. We also had wine and... 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!
