As a surprise for our 40th anniversary my husband planned an overnight at this very nice B&B. Beautiful restoration and very nice rooms. Loved the private porch swing in our own four season porch overlooking St. Croix River. Great food and friendly service. Close to quaint downtown Main Street with many dining options and interesting shops. Very quiet and comfortable stay. Very romantic gardens. Highly recommend this for a special get away or a very small intimate wedding.

This Inn is beautiful, peaceful and wonderfully managed. I can't remember the last time we felt this relaxed and carefree! The service provided exceeded our expectations - they managed to accommodate my food allergy without ever missing out on taste and even when there was an unexpected loss of power, our coffee was still waiting for us right outside our door on time. I highly recommend this location to anyone, we were celebrating an anniversary and would happily return to celebrate another! thank you for such a wonderful experience.

We spent a wonderful fall day at the Aurora Staples Inn. It was warm, peaceful, relaxing ... just what we were looking for! The food was awesome and the room was charming and very clean. We will definitely be back!

My husband I happened upon the Aurora Inn and knocked on the door to the Inn without a reservation or any notice. Cathy and her adorable and polite granddaughter welcomed us right in. Cathy seemed genuinely happy to have unexpected visitors. We were delighted to have our choice of rooms and selected the carriage house. The entire Inn is impeccable. The grounds/landscaping well maintained. Wine and appetizers outdoors, coffee delivered to the Carriage House in the morning...they paid attention to each and every detail. We ended up staying two nights we enjoyed it so much. We will return!!!
