The rooms are very beautiful with charming Victorian decorations and furniture. Cathy and Jerry are very gracious hosts and made our stay a wonderful experience. The gardens are very beautiful also. The mansion was... More

Aurora Staples Bed & Breakfast is a really nice place. The food was excellent, and the owners are very friendly & helpful. We will defiantly recommend this B & B to others! Loved sitting on the front porch for our evening refreshments. And a perfect spot to sit for our morning coffee. ❤️

The Aurora Staples Inn is beautiful! Breakfasts were superior! A great get-a-way, relaxing and the Inn-keepers were caring and welcoming! The area was quiet and full of history! Lots of quaint shops downtown and huge Antique stores nearby! Located near the river walk, where there are lots of activities.

We wanted a place to get away and relax. And we found it at Aurora Staples Inn. Our room was warm and comfortable, the house is beautifully maintained, the gardens are beautiful and the food was delicious. Jerry and Cathy are the perfect host and hostess. We will be going back for out next get away.

This was our 5th visit to Aurora Staples Inn but this time we brought my parents who were celebrating their 62nd anniversary. They stayed in the carriage house and we stayed in the Riverview room. Our time has always been peaceful and relaxing and Cathy and Jerry are the best. The house is beautiful, the gardens are amazing and the... More

We celebrated our anniversary here because of a recommendation from a close friend. The Aurora Staples Inn lived up to everything we were looking for. Cathy and Jerry were wonderfully welcoming and friendly hosts. We really had the chance to relax and unwind in the carriage house for the evening.

My husband and I actually got married in their beautiful garden three years ago today. We come back every year and stay right around our anniversary. If you can book the Carriage House, it's amazing. I always joke with my husband that he can go back home to the city and visit me at the Carriage House on the weekends... More

This was our first experience at a Bed & Breakfast and it was excellent. The innkeepers, Cathy & Jerry, were very welcoming! We stayed in the Carriage House, which was separate from the main house, and was very quiet and peaceful. The room was very nice and had everything we needed for a nice getaway from everyday life. Cathy's breakfast... More

Perfect does not even begin to cover it. The room was amazing and well-kept, the breakfasts each day were filling, unique, and delicious, and the owners were so pleasant. My wife and I went to celebrate our first anniversary and we have decided that this will become a reoccurring trend for us. We would HIGHLY recommend staying here.
