Aurora StapleS Inn – Bed & Breakfast
Imagine life in the late 1800’s… horse drawn carriages… ladies in flowing gowns and flowered hats… gentlemen smoking pipes in their private libraries…and shopping in an array of unique stores on Stillwater’s Main Street with a saloon or two thrown in. One can still experience this genteel time when staying at the authentically restored Aurora Staples Inn Bed & Breakfast.
Upon check-in you will be warmly greeted and treated to a complimentary glass of wine from St. Croix Vineyards or a glass of beer from Liftbridge Brewery. Other beverages include apple cider, hot chocolate, a variety of teas, sparkling juice, local wines & beer, champagne, water, soda. We also have a Keurig machine available for your use in our Parlour.
Upon request, we will deliver gourmet coffee from Ethiopia to your room each morning as well as breakfast or enjoy breakfast at the dining room table.
Let Aurora Staples Inn be a part of your love story!

Challenge your taste-buds with a variety of flavors at our Inn
At Aurora Staples Inn Bed and Breakfast we celebrate the art of food and dining. Your morning begins with our special Tanzianian Peaberry coffee delivered on a tray to your room. This special brew is “a full bodied, medium roast with notes of citrus and Concord grapes coupled with a chocolatey finish” and the proceeds from the coffee help fund schools and jobs in Tanzania.
“Coffee beans are Sun-ray beams.”
Then, your choice… Our full three-course breakfast is served in our dining room at 9AM or, if you prefer, your breakfast or coffee can be delivered to your room. Only the finest ingredients are used for my breakfasts because I shop for fresh ingredients each day.
We accommodate dietary restrictions such as Gluten Free, Vegan, Vegetarians, food allergies, lactose intolerance and other dietary needs. Please give us a 24 hour notice for special requests.
