  •   My wife and I stayed in the Peacock room at Aurora Staples and had a wonderful time. The amenities were above-average and the breakfasts were outstanding. I highly recommend this B&B for a weekend getaway/romance.

  •   We were guests in the St. Croix room for one night (wish it were more!). My husband and I were on a little getaway and when looking for accommodations, found Aurora Staples Inn and we're so happy we did! Rachelle greeted us, showed us around the Inn and to our room. In moments she delivered a welcome tray with wine, grapes, cheese spread and crackers. She made dinner suggestions and we had a near perfect meal at Marx, which was a short walk away. Our room had everything we needed, was perfectly clean and furnished beautifully. The next morning coffee was delivered to our room in advance of breakfast, which was a really nice touch. Breakfast included a fruit bowl (much more special than this sounds), a souffle, and a raspberry scone. We were thrilled with our stay and will recommend it to others plus hope to be back. More

      My husband and I stayed one night in the carriage house and wish we would have stayed another night. We were looking for a quiet, romantic getaway to celebrate our anniversary and to not be disturbed. The carriage house was so private, it was exactly what we were looking for. Loved that it had a covered parking space right next to the door. The room was clean, extremely spacious with separate bathroom and lots of great books, some games and even enjoyed the classical music selection and CD player, something we typically wouldn’t have used. Lots of cute small extras in the room, wine and snacks brought to the room when we arrived, sittinging room with blanket and books. Great bonus was the hidden TV and WiFi. The jetted tub is what made us choose this room with the 3 sides fireplace and it did not disappoint! But probably the best part of the stay was the large, extremely comfortable bed. We have 3 small children so to get a quiet, restful nights sleep is priceless. The bed was so comfortable and the sheets were soft and smooth. Not sure if it was a weighted blanket or what but it truly was just the most comfortable bed. I’m not a huge breakfast food person but this breakfast was one I more then enjoyed! The butterscotch waffles were amazing and the coffee was unique and delicious. Everything on the tray was...

  •   My husband and I enjoyed our stay in the Riverview Suite. Our room was clean and comfortable and we loved having the porch. It had a nice swing for relaxing and a little table where we ate breakfast each morning. Breakfast was delicious: pumpkin bread/pancakes (we weren’t really sure what to call them but we ate them down to the crumbs), pesto quiche, scones, and fruit. We decided to have breakfast served in our suite so we could enjoy it on the porch. Rochelle, our host, was the perfect combination of solicitous and unobtrusive.

    One note: if you are thinking of going downtown, you might as well leave your car at Aurora Staples and walk (particularly if it is a weekend and the weather is decent). By the time we found parking downtown, we went much closer than we would have been if we had walked. Plus, given the size of the breakfast, we really needed to get in a few steps!

  •   We saw all the rooms in the main house and they were all tastefully decorated. The common areas were very nice as well. Breakfast was tasty.

  •   Thank you Rachelle for making us feel like family. After 2 day business meeting, to come home to the Carriage House and soak in the 2 person jacuzzi with fireplace roaring was what we needed. Comfortable beds, quiet and clean. Breakfast pizza, fruit & cream and blueberry scone were delicious and filling. I may not need to eat lunch. See you again soon. Brenda & Ford
