We stayed in the Riverview Suite for two nights and loved every minute we were there. The house is absolutely gorgeous and in amazing condition. Kathy and Jerry were amazing hosts for our entire stay. We were met at the door and offered refreshments the first night. Then every morning we were brought a coffee and tea service to our...

Our experience was delightful from beginning to end. We have visited many B & B's all across the U.S. and Aurora Staples is top rated with us. It was gently snowing as we approached for the first night of our stay and their home was so beautifully lit with a warm glow of Christmas lights that we just stopped to...

We stayed in the St. Croix Suite for two nights. The house was beautifully decorated for Christmas. The owners, Kathy & Jerry, put a lot of work into making your stay a comfortable one. My husband and I enjoyed the coffee service delivered to our room and then, an hour later, joined the other guests for breakfast at a large...

We have stayed at this B&B for the last 8 years. We have a wonderful time every time we go. Cathy and Jerry are perfect hosts, warm and charming, gracious, kind and we love them. We will ALWAYS stay here every time we visit Stillwater. The breakfasts are excellent and they are very good at making vegetarian and vegan breakfasts....

My wife and I stayed here to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary. We were greeted upon our arrival and shown around the historic house. There are many great amenities in the house and some very nice common rooms that can be used. They also offer water, soda, and coffee that you can have any time you would like. Our room...

We spent this past Thanksgiving at Aurora Staples Inn and we were not disappointed with the house nor our host Cathy & Jerry. All the rooms are well appointed. We stayed in the St. Croix room which is by far our favorite. The attention to detail in and out of the house resonates with the historic value of the home....

The Aurora Staples Inn was a wonderful place to stay in Stillwater when we came to town for 2 family weddings on the same weekend early in December. My husband and I stayed in the St. Croix Suite which is large and has an comfortable and elegantly furnished sitting room. The WiFi was consistently reliable throughout the house. Our family...

We absolutely love the Aurora Staples Inn. We were married next door at the Stillwater Library, rented the entire B & B for our family and have been returning every year since then for our anniversary. The rooms are beautiful, they have great beds and all the amenities that anyone could need. And the breakfasts are amazing. Cathy and Jerry...

We stayed one night at the Aurora Staples Inn for a short, but much needed, get away. The breakfast was amazing, and tea delivered to our rooms that morning was beyond welcoming (wish I could get my kids to do that!). The Giverny room, as well as the rest of the home, was beautifully decorated in turn of the century...

Thank you for the wonderful night and breakfast! The Carriage House was so clean with wonderful accommodations. Loved the 3 sided fireplace, large Jacuzzi tub and comfortable bed. Coffee delivered to our room in the morning was a treat. The breakfast was delicious and very enjoyable. We highly recommend the Carriage House at the Aurora Staples Inn!
