We had four couples in our party. Kathy worked with me on assigning rooms, ordering wine and answering any questions about the area and her property before we even arrived. The home is gorgeous and the history of the property is amazing. We were greeted with a short tour of the house and given our keys. Kathy then explained the...

This was the perfect way for us to spend our anniversary. Such a beautiful B&B and such a close walk to historic Stillwater. We didn't need our car once there. The food was amazing and the proprietors are so friendly and accommodating.

We only met Cathy during this stay, and she was very accommodating. First of all, we needed an early check-in because of our event. Fine, no problem! Later, I asked for breakfast to be delivered to our room. Initially they thought they couldn't do it because I'd asked early the morning of, but they found a way to accommodate our...

The best inn in Stillwater! The carriage house was private and spacious. The innkeepers are so hospitable and gracious hosts. The 3 course breakfasts are the best! We will definitely be back! We love our yearly retreat at Aurora Staples Inn.

I didn't think once about what was left at home waiting for me when I get back, how much I need to get done at home. No! From the moment we pulled in to the Aurora Staples Inn I was brought into the Victorian Era without losing any of our 21st Century necessities! The hospitality of the owners were both...

Stayed in St. Croix room. All was beautiful, elegant, exceeded expectations. We were treated to such elegance and serenity throughout the home. Breakfast was amazing! Kathie made us special baskets. We have stayed in many B&B's, and this was our favorite experience by far. A perfect combination of pampering and privacy. A step back in time that made our trip...

This was mine and my wife's first B and B experience, and we were completely blown away by the experience Cathy and Jerry created. Their attention to detail, both in their rooms and in their service, is world-class. Breakfast was DELICIOUS - real eggs bennedict with Hollondaise and a parfait. We chose the Carriage House, and it was spectacular. Huge...

Great place to get away for a relaxing stay and great breakfast! The room was comfortable, and we enjoyed the comfy bed, jacuzzi tub, and porch. The owners are super nice, and we just loved our stay! Will definitely be back!
