My wife and I had a wonderful weekend celebrating our anniversary. Cathy was a great host, and we enjoyed the delicious breakfast each morning. The location is perfect - close enough to walk to restaurants and shops, but up on a quiet hill away from the heavy activity. The porch is a lovely spot to read and relax. We rode... More

This beautiful inn was such a great place to stay after our long walks and fun stops in Stillwater! The innkeepers were so pleasant and not to mention great cooks! The peacock room was beautiful, the vintage looks of this house really stood out and made the stay even more interesting!

On the last night of a 6000+ mile road trip, we decided to spend a night in Stillwater, having heard that it bore many similarities to another river town we very much enjoy: Galena. Aurora Staples popped up on an Internet search with available rooms. What luck! The house had the kind of architecture we relish in a B&B, and... More

We stayed in the Peacock Room for 3 nights. Very relaxing time, wonderful hosts, great food, would do it again in a heartbeat! First time visiting Stillwater, a real fun beautiful town. Went on a paddle boat evening dinner cruise on the St. Croix River.

We celebrated our 19th anniversary at the Aurora Staples Inn. The location is absolutely perfect! We were able to walk to restaurants and antique stores easily. We LOVED having coffee delivered to the room, and breakfast was fabulous - especially the fruit course! The wine/beer and hors d' oeuvres upon arrival were perfect to enjoy while getting settled in before... More

This is our third time staying at Aurora Staples Inn. The hosts are very friendly, the carriage house is wonderful, and the breakfast is delicious! Stillwater is a great, small town to visit. The St. Croix River, terrific restaurants, and shopping are all within walking distance.

We celebrated our anniversary with a 2 night stay in this beautiful home. We stayed in the St. Croix Suite which was quite spacious and furnished with beautiful antique pieces. Cathy's attention to detail is evident in every area of this home - so many special touches. A wine and cheese welcome, delicious breakfasts, lively conversation around the breakfast table,... More

We spent just one night in Stillwater for our 1 year anniversary and wanted to try this B&B out. We were welcomed and given a short tour of the main floor, the innkeeper was nice enough. Our room was very clean and decorated tastefully. We came back down to beer, wine, and hors d'oeuvres in a quiet sitting room. We... More

Hi Angela, thank you for writing a review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay. We added a tip line a few years ago purely to give our housekeepers an added incentive. It is voluntary, never expected, and 100% goes to them. You stated your room was clean, and this is very important to us. More

We had four couples in our party. Kathy worked with me on assigning rooms, ordering wine and answering any questions about the area and her property before we even arrived. The home is gorgeous and the history of the property is amazing. We were greeted with a short tour of the house and given our keys. Kathy then explained the... More
