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

My husband and I were just there for a short night stay after a busy weekend. We stayed in the carriage house. I loved all the aspects of our stay from the whirlpool hot tub, gas fireplace and the breakfast. I loved the decorations and Cathy for sure has the gift of hospitality!

We searched the Web looking for a short notice bed and breakfast. Aurora Staples has a vacancy. It was our lucky day. We were impressed when we arrived and just got better. It was a great experience. We have visited many inns and b and b's. Aurora Staples is one of the very finest. The inn and our room were... More

My daughter and I stayed in the Riverview Suite for a two night getaway. The room was perfect for our needs with the porch serving as a sitting area for the important talks that we came to have. The service was excellent and the food delicious. We liked the privacy of the Riverview being down its own little hallway, while... More

This was our first time at a B&B and we decided to celebrate our 45th Wedding Anniversary at the Aurora Staples Inn. It was a good choice! Our room was the Carriage House which was very beautiful. It had Victorian Decor and very romantic with a fireplace and double whirlpool tub. Cathy was a gracious host and delivered our breakfast... More

Spent a night at Aurora Staples Inn in Stillwater,MN with my bride as we celebrated 15 years. Beautiful home overlooking the St. Croix River. Peacock Room served our purposes perfectly. Great breakfast, good morning conversation and gracious host, Cathy. George Larson, Minneapolis, MN

The room was very spacious and historic with its Victorian era-esque decor. There was a 2-way fireplace with whirlpool tub, making it very romantic. There was an unfortunate mixup upon checkin, so we were not given a tour or the complimentary welcome. Breakfast was delivered to the room which was greatly appreciated.

This was our first foray into the B&B world and we couldn't have selected a better B&B to stay at. The home was absolutely exquisite and Cathy and Jerry, the owners/hosts, were magnificent. This B&B is situated in one of the best locations, being just a short walk down the hill to central Stillwater/activities. The B&B itself is a gorgeous... More
