The Aurora Staples Inn is a very lovely B&B. The breakfast was wonderful and the staff catered to our tastes and dietary needs. The room was filled with lots of "stuff", not my taste but done tastefully. Hershey kisses were plentiful and there was a small refrigerator with soda and cold water available in the hallway. There were a few areas I felt that they Inn fell down. First of all, I believe due to the Covid pandemic they did not clean the room each day. It would have been nice if they would have told us. Secondly, I asked if ice was available. I was told that i would have to knock on the owner's down to get a glass of ice. I would rather not have to disturb them (though they might not have considered this a bother), I would have rather had ice available in a common area.

Friends had recommended a visit to Stillwater in early April to launch our extended road trip west, so being our first visit, we opted for this bed and breakfast. We are happy we chose Aurora Staples Inn! It's located in a lovely residential area yet conveniently close to the main shopping. Rachelle is a sweetheart of a host and we loved the added attention to food service details such as wine, cheese and fruit displayed charmingly on a tray, and her breakfast the next morning was to-die-for delicious!

A beautiful 19th century home of architectural significance. The carriage house is renovated, but in keeping with the style of the main house. We stayed in the carriage house, which boasts an enormous main room, with a king-sized bed, large hot-tub, and gas fireplace. Rachelle and Eddie are wonderful hosts. Coffee and breakfast brought right to the room!

My husband and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary at Aurora Staples Inn and couldn't have been more pleased. We were genuinely welcomed into beautiful, comfortable accommodations. The house is lovely, bed was super comfortable and having a fireplace by the jetted tub was awesome! We enjoyed being close to main street where we could shop, eat, have cocktails and walk. Thanks for helping us celebrate!
