Aurora Staples Inn
Ranked #1 of 9 Stillwater B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 March 2014

My husband and I spent a night here last week for a "stay-cation". We stayed in the Carriage House. It was spacious and clean. The bed was HUGE and the whirlpool was relaxing. Breakfast was delicious, and the owners were some of the nicest people you'll ever meet. Next time we'd like to try out one of the rooms in the main house, and go in the summer or spring when we can do some walking outside in beautiful downtown Stillwater.

Room Tip: For privacy, stay in the Carriage House.

We had a very nice stay. Cathy went out of her way to make our weekend special. The breakfast was unforgettable. The bed was very comfortable and the thick robes were a nice luxury. The small touches were what made the evening so special. I would highly recommend this B&B.

Best B & B ever !!....We stayed outside of the Main House in the Carriage house. We ordered Dinner from the local restaurant called Green Room which was excellent. Kathy served us each course individually which added a nice touch. Then we have the best Breakfast EVER brought to us at 9am. The Whirlpool/ Fireplace and size of our room was the best ! We will be back for sure in the summer. Dana & Laurie

Room Tip: if you can't get the Carriage House room ,,then choose the St.Croix Room in the main house as it...

We just got home from our 3 day stay at the Aurora Staples B&B. We have stayed here many times before and have always enjoyed it. We stayed in the Carriage House this time and loved every minute of it! The fireplace, jacuzzi, and sitting area are so nice to sit back and relax, read, or whatever you choose to do. There are plenty of books in the room and magazines to sit back and stare at the fireplace...

The breakfasts are absolutely wonderful. My husband is a vegan, and Cathy and Jerry always do a great job of making a lovely breakfast, that is so good. This is a wonderful place to spend a night, weekend or more. We will return many more times.

Room Tip: The Carriage House has the cozy sitting room, lots of privacy and huge shower! We also like the St C...

We stayed at the Aurora Staples in for two nights while in town for a wedding and couldn't have been happier with our choice. The hosts did a wonderful job of making us feel at home, the room was comfortable an quiet and the breakfast delicious. The in room coffee service in the morning was a really nice touch. We are already planning our next stay. Thanks so much, Cathy and Jerry, for your hospitality!!

This was our first stay of Aurora Staples (definately not our last!) and a wonderful way to celebrate our anniversary. The first night we stayed in the Carriage House - book it if its available!! It's like you own get-a-way in a get-a-way! The second night was just as lovely in the Peacock Room. The warmth of the fireplaces, comforts of the whirpools, and the graciousness of Kathy and Jerry were like no other place we've been!!

Room Tip: The carraige room is beyond excellent, but the others in the house were wonderfully done also!
