My husband and I stayed at the Aurora Staples Bed & Breakfast for our wedding night and we couldn’t have been happier. The owner greeted us personally upon arrival and gave us a tour of the house. We had taken the historical trolley tour around Stillwater earlier that day and just learned that the house had originally been given to... More

We always stay at the Aurora Staples B&B whenever we are in Stillwater. It is a beautiful house with wonderful guest rooms and the hosts Cathy and Jerry will make you feel right at home. The breakfasts are always great and every morning is a different menu. We love getting the early morning tea and juice. The gardens in the... More

The beautiful house with its wonderful guest room is a fabulous little hideaway. We have just spent 3 nights being pampered by our host. The breakfast is delicious and the services quiet and efficient. We will definitely stay here again

We loved our stay at Aurora Staples Inn. Our breakfast was delicious and we appreciated the early coffee delivery to our room. The B & B is a lovely home in a very pretty city. It was a very nice trip and we hope to come back some day.

We received a gift certificate for a stay at the Aurora Staples Inn, so we reserved the Giverny room for two nights. I will admit that at first, when I walked into the room, I was a little bit disappointed that there was no shower--only a tub. However, I think that ended up to be wonderful because I would normally... More

Stayed in the St. Croix Suite... very spacious room with a BEAUTIFUL tub. (Double-sided fireplace overlooking the tub!) The grounds are meticulously kept, it's extremely close to the river, only wish I could've spent more time there. (It was for a wedding.)

Don't miss the opportunity to stay in this beautiful home! Since I was traveling with a friend (rather than my husband) the innkeepers were able to accommodate us by providing a fold out bed in our spacious room. The room also had an absolutely lovely porch where we could read or play games. The breakfasts were truly fantastic, and Cathy... More

This is about our fourth stay at a Victorian B&B. We rate yours number 1 of all we have visited. The wine and appetizer on our arrival were awesome and the St. Croix Suite was very relaxing. Stillwater is a great town to visit and thanks for making our stay so enjoyable. It was nice to be within walking distance... More

This inn was built by a wood baron, and the beautiful woodwork and inlaid floors display his company's handiwork. All the bedrooms are lovely and beautifully decorated. And the breakfast was really terrific. The proprietor, Cathy, was kind enough to make gluten-free things that I need because of my allergy. Altogether, a very nice experience.
