Aurora Staples and Stillwater were great for a nice vacation. The Inn and the owners were everything we could want from a bed and breakfast. We can't say enough nice things. We were here two days and still did not see everything, will have to come back.

The innkeepers Jerry and Kathy were wonderful folks. Our room had all the necessities and was beautifully appointed. King size bed was so comfy , no sleep was lost. Kathy was very accomodating to my last minute unplanned dietary change for breakfast. Jerry gave us insight into the sights to see at the MN state fair, which was our vacation...

My husband and I spent one night and wished we had planned to stay longer. Cathy was very friendly and makes you feel very welcome in their home. Her attention to detail is second to none. We stayed in the suite with a wonderful indoor porch overlooking the beautiful gardens which are amazing. We will be back and will plan...

My husband and I stayed at a log-cabin style resort north of Duluth for a few nights, and then decided to split our drive home in half and stay in Stillwater for one extra night. I'm SO glad we did, and so glad that we chose the Aurora Staples Inn! We had some disappointments at our resort, including an incredibly...

My wife and I had a wonderful weekend celebrating our anniversary. Cathy was a great host, and we enjoyed the delicious breakfast each morning. The location is perfect - close enough to walk to restaurants and shops, but up on a quiet hill away from the heavy activity. The porch is a lovely spot to read and relax. We rode...

This beautiful inn was such a great place to stay after our long walks and fun stops in Stillwater! The innkeepers were so pleasant and not to mention great cooks! The peacock room was beautiful, the vintage looks of this house really stood out and made the stay even more interesting!

On the last night of a 6000+ mile road trip, we decided to spend a night in Stillwater, having heard that it bore many similarities to another river town we very much enjoy: Galena. Aurora Staples popped up on an Internet search with available rooms. What luck! The house had the kind of architecture we relish in a B&B, and...

We stayed in the Peacock Room for 3 nights. Very relaxing time, wonderful hosts, great food, would do it again in a heartbeat! First time visiting Stillwater, a real fun beautiful town. Went on a paddle boat evening dinner cruise on the St. Croix River.

We celebrated our 19th anniversary at the Aurora Staples Inn. The location is absolutely perfect! We were able to walk to restaurants and antique stores easily. We LOVED having coffee delivered to the room, and breakfast was fabulous - especially the fruit course! The wine/beer and hors d' oeuvres upon arrival were perfect to enjoy while getting settled in before...
