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!

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!

I think the decor is intended to be 1800s French -- it feels very elegant. Kathy is a lovely hostess. There will be wine and appetizers when you arrive. The...

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.

My husband and I arrived in the afternoon and we were met with a glass of wine and horderves to sit on the porch and enjoy. Everything was wonderful. 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...
