My husband and I stayed in the St. Croix suite for 2 nights. It was a spacious room with a nice sitting area and cozy fireplace. There was also a nice whirlpool tub. It is a beautiful home. The breakfasts were excellent - we didn't need to eat lunch. The location is ideal. We easily walked to the downtown. We...

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the Aurora Staples Inn. We spent 2 nights and had a a great time walking around Stillwater looking at the historic buildings and eating great food.

My two adult daughters and I enjoyed staying at the Aurora Staples Inn! The accommodations worked out very well for three of us. My daughters stayed in the Peacock Room and I was in the Gallery.

We stayed in the St. Croix suite, which had an awesome fireplace and jacuzzi tub. The property itself was in a perfect location, walkable to downtown. Breakfast the next...

We've stayed at the Aurora Staples multiple times and have never had a bad experience. All the bedrooms, especially the suites, are extremely comfortable, and the breakfasts, whether eaten "in room" or in the beautiful dining room, are exceptional. Our recent stay in the Carriage House was our best visit yet. The room is luxurious, expansive, quiet and made for...

Beautiful home with very friendly and gracious hosts. Personally greeted at the door. Wine and apetizers when we arrived. Great recommendations for dining out. Hit tea, coffee or juice delivered to your room in the morning. Riverview suite was quiet and comfortable. The porch swing was a nice touch. Breakfast was very delicoius, amazing!

My wife and I love the Aurora Staples Inn! We come at least once a year. Great facility, gracious owners and operators, well worth it! The food is always good. I recommend the Carriage House or the Riverview Suite!
