We found this B&B online when looking for a place to stay for our anniversary. The room was wonderful and it was fun to spend time on Stillwater Main street. The hostess was very nice and breakfast was scrumptious. We will definitely go back.

We stayed in the Carriage House for a mini honeymoon, and it was amazing. The room was very private, clean and comfortable with beautiful decor. The whirlpool is HUGE. The owners are wonderful people and the hospitality was top notch. Breakfast was delicious and it was fun to meet the other guests in the main house. This place is a...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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!
