We spent two nights at the Aurora Staples Inn while we were in Stillwater for a wedding. The inn is in a meticulously restored old home with beautiful original woodwork. 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...

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.

We stayed in the Carriage House for a mini honeymoon, and it was amazing. The room was very private, clean and comfortable with beautiful decor. The whirlpool is HUGE. The owners are wonderful people and the hospitality was top notch. Breakfast was delicious and it was fun to meet the other guests in the main house. This place is a...

We stumbled across Aurora Staples Inn while looking for a romantic weekend getaway. We initially booked for a single night, but we got to stay for the entire weekend due to a last minute cancellation. We don't have much experience with B&Bs, and I had some trepidation about this stay, but my fears were unfounded; this was far better than...

My stay at the Aurora Staples Inn was perfect! The building is gorgeous and comfortable. Cathy and Gerry work diligently to make their guests feel at home. I felt very well taken care of, which was just what I needed for this trip. The Inn is also in a great location: close enough that you can walk to/from main street...
