We celebrated our anniversary on a very cold January weekend at Aurora Staples B&B. Cathy and Jerry were very welcoming. The house was warm and peaceful. The breakfast was wonderful. We also enjoyed meeting the other guests while sipping on some wine and eating appetizers. We definitely will be back.

My husband and I stayed here for a quick anniversary getaway and to visit friends. We could not have asked for a better place to stay. We had never stayed in a bed and breakfast and feel that the carriage house was the best of both worlds. It was private but we had all of the amenities of a B&B.... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a weekend in January 2016, and it was our first B&B stay. It was a great time. We were greeted with wine and a cheese plate upon check-in. We were able to share some time with other couples staying at the B&B as well which was fun, but we also were more than... More

Decided to book the St. Croix suite after reading all of the great reviews on Trip Advisor. This Bed and Breakfast did not disappoint. We stayed at The Aurora Staples Inn for a full weekend, and were treated to beautiful yet quiet accommodations, warm, welcoming innkeepers, and coffee and breakfast brought directly to our room. The best part was that... More

We always stay at the Aurora Staples B&B whenever we go to Stillwater. Cathy and Jerry go out of their way to make everyone feel welcome. The breakfasts are always wonderful, even for my hubby who is a vegan. Everything Cathy and Jerry have made has been fantastic. We particularly love the Riverview Suite, and the Carriage House Suite. All... More

Upon arrival the host was outside and welcomed us kindly. We went inside and the ambience was set up beautifully for the holiday season. The hostess was very gracious offering appetizers and wine after we settled in. Our "Cottage" was lovely with a king sized bed, fireplace and a large whirlpool. We were offered tea and coffee brought to the... More

We had to change our stay due to my father's death, so I am very grateful for their accomodation. It was the perfect place to recuperate and the room was beautiful (St. Croix room). It was a delight to have breakfast brought to the room, too! Thank you.

My husband and I stayed in the Peacock Room for his birthday. It had everything we needed including a comfortable bed and warm fireplace. The jaccuzi tub was a nice touch as well. We were greeted with some appetizers and wine at check-in which was appreciated. The 3 course breakfast was delicious and was prepared gluten free to accomodate our... More

This stay was given to us as a gift from our family. It is the first time we have stayed in a B&B. It was a very relaxing and personable experience. The breakfasts were delicious and the location gave us easy access to the shops down town. We plan to go back when we can experience the summer activities the... More

Aurora Staples was a beautiful stay. The home was impressive and Cathy was wonderful. She made us feel right at home. We stayed in the Riverview Suite which was delightful. We enjoyed the extra room on the porch and the views of the WI bluffs and Mississippi River were wonderful. Overall, this was a fantastic stay and we would recommend... More
