My husband and I had such a great time at the Aurora Staples B & B! We stayed 2 nights in the Carriage house. Wow, was it pretty and spacious! The large tub was fun and the large shower was great for showers in the morning! We also thoroughly enjoyed the breakfasts! Yum!

Great b&b. This was lumber Barron's mansion. Beautifully keep; woodflooring and staircase were exceptionally detailed. Breakfasts were great. Coffee available all the time. The innkeepers were very helpful and suggested great things to see and do.

I surprised my boyfriend by renting out the Carriage House Suite which is separate from the main house. It was so beautiful and peaceful! Jerry and Cathy have done a fabulous job of maintaining the premises! But their hospitality only was hands down the best we have ever experienced! Cathy, the snacks were tasty upon arrival and the breakfast in... More

My husband David and I really enjoyed our stay here. Beautiful home, kind and hospitable innkeepers, and breakfast was outstanding. We loved relaxing on the front porch rocking chairs. We look forward to our stay here in the future!

My husband and I stayed at the Aurora Staples Inn for two nights last October, 2014. We like to get away every fall for a few days, and are so happy we found out about this bed and breakfast! The innkeepers really do have the gift of hospitality. They were so friendly, and attentive to our every need, while giving... More

The Aurora Staples Inn was the perfect choice for an annual retreat for my sister and me. Innkeeper Jerry's friendly welcome made us feel at home right away. HIs tour of the house and explanation of the services they provide helped us to comfortably settle in. We stayed in the spacious Riverview Suite which, in addition to the bedroom and... More

Kathy and Jim are great innkeepers. The initial welcome with wine and horsdouvres is fun. The food is refreshing. The welcome is not overwhelming. The mansion is well kept. It's clean and has lots to look at. It's safe and well locked up too. (Not that the area really needs that) The rooms are spacious. The tubs are size able... More

We had a lovely stay! Very relaxing! The room was beautiful! We also enjoyed the oversized jacuzzi tub! We didn't get a chance to meet Jerry but Cathy is such a sweetheart! We loved being greeted at check in with wine and hot tea being delivered to our room in the morning! And breakfast was so delicious! What a pleasant... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Carriage House. The service was excellent! Cathy was very personable and accommodating. It's located within blocks of the downtown/water front area. It was a great overall experience & I'd highly recommend it to others.

We stayed at the Aurora Staples Inn in Stillwater, MN for two nights and couldn't have had a better experience. From the moment we arrived, we could tell it was going to be a pleasurable experience. We were greeted warmly by the innkeepers, Cathy and Jerry, upon arrival. They explained what amenities were offered for us to utilize during our... More
