We stumbled across Aurora Staples Inn while looking for a romantic weekend getaway. We initially booked for a single night, but we got to stay for the entire weekend due to a last minute cancellation. We don't have much experience with B&Bs, and I had some trepidation about this stay, but my fears were unfounded; this was far better than... More

My stay at the Aurora Staples Inn was perfect! The building is gorgeous and comfortable. Cathy and Gerry work diligently to make their guests feel at home. I felt very well taken care of, which was just what I needed for this trip. The Inn is also in a great location: close enough that you can walk to/from main street... More

We are both professionals in fields that require travel and/or reviewing experiences at businesses. Cathy was initially very accommodating to us. We asked if a mini fridge could be put in our room (Peacock room) and it was in there when we arrived. We had a late check-in which didn't seem to be a problem for Cathy. She asked if... More

This historic home is such a treat. The breakfasts are out of this world, the house and grounds are gorgeous, and you are walking distance from just about everything! We can't wait to stay here again.

We stayed in the carriage room our first night and absolutely loved it. They really thought of every detail. The second night was in the house in the peacock room. It was okay but no shower. Not their mistake, we just should have double checked.

Our stay exceeded expectations all the way around. The welcome and hospitality was unmatched. This is a beautiful historic home and very comfortable. It's walking distance to downtown Stillwater which offers a variety of shops and eating establishments and is located right on the St. Croix River. Exceptional stay and highly recommended

We stayed in the St. Croix Suite for 2 nights. The room was very spacious, great layout with a large tub with jets. The owners were very friendly and the breakfasts were great the two mornings we had them! We will definitely consider Aurora Staples for our next B&B stay in Stillwater, and would highly recommend the Inn to anyone... More

Hospitality offered by the Innkeepers, Cathy & Jerry, was great! From greeting us at the door to service of wine & cheese upon check-in and a delicious breakfast in the a.m., they provided a warm, comfortable welcome. We stayed in the Giverny room. The bed was very comfortable. The amenities were great including refridgerated bottled water!

Cathy and Jerry were very warm and welcoming to us, they even let us park our car a little early before check in so we could walk around Stillwater, we had the Riverview suit which was very classic and beautiful, breakfast was magnificent and Cathy explained all of the recipes and they were all delicious! We will for sure be... More

Aurora Staples and Stillwater were great for a nice vacation. The Inn and the owners were everything we could want from a bed and breakfast. We can't say enough nice things. We were here two days and still did not see everything, will have to come back.
