We stayed in the carriage house and it was wonderfully decorated and comfortable and had all the accommodations needed to have a romantic night with my wife - and we couldn't have been happier! From breakfast in bed to an amazing hot tub all the way to people who put the S in service, we had a great time and look forward to indulging in the near future!

We stayed one night for our wedding anniversary and everything was fantastic! We arrived an hour early (my bad, had check in time wrong). We were welcomed with open arms. Kathy had our room ready and she allowed us to check in early. The place was immaculate and beautifully decorated. It is within walking distance to shopping and restaurants, which is a plus! Between 4-6, there is complimentary wine/beer and a cheese tray. Breakfast was 3 courses! I can't say enough good things about this bed and breakfast! You won't be disappointed!!

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in the Giverny Room. We went to Stillwater for a getaway. Cathy offered us wonderful hospitality, delicious breakfasts (3 courses!), and a fantastic room with double whirlpool tub! The room had Hershey's kisses awaiting us in a dish, and in the hall, there was a fridge with waters and sodas. Games and books abound throughout the inn. A Keurig is available at all times for your convenience with several beverage choices. The location is near all the shops and restaurants in downtown Stillwater. Also within walking distance is an amazing Carnegie library. This was the perfect location for my husband and I to get away for a couple of days, to reconnect, to talk, to play cribbage, and to eat and shop. What a blessing! :) Check it out!!!

We stayed in the Carriage House Suite for our 17th wedding anniversary and enjoyed every minute. The attention to details was spectacular and the hosts were very accommodating. We look forward to our next stay in the near future.

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!!!
