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!).

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!

I would highly recommend staying at the Aurora Staples Inn. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the service is great! We had coffee delivered outside out door at 8am which was such a treat. Breakfast was exceptional - blueberry french toast with a cream cheese layer - very good!

Immaculate and charming Victorian B&B located in the historic town of Stillwater, MN, along the St. Croix River. Peaceful setting with wonderful breakfasts and friendly, attentive hosts. Close to dining, shopping and places of interest. Our favorite B&B of all time. We always look forward to our stays here.

The room was a little warm but it was because it was fall and warm in the day and cool in the evening. Within walking distance of everything that we wanted... More

We stayed in the Carriage House and it was awesome! Great hospitality, delicious breakfast and a nice quiet stay in beautiful surroundings. We were in Stillwater for our daughter's wedding and our stay at Aurora Staples topped off a wonderful weekend. We'll be back!

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.
