Morning coffee tray outside our room and then a gourmet breakfast in the gorgeous dining room. Antiques and lovely crafts adorn the entire B&B which is situated within walking distance to the picturesque town.... More

We had a fabulous stay at the Aurora Staples Inn Bed and Breakfast in Stillwater, MN. Highly recommend it. Beautiful location, great food, and friendly innkeeper. Lovely restoration of home and comfortable accomodations. Loved the four season porch with a swing connected to our suite.
