      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!

  •   My husband and I had a delightfully memorable stay at the Aurora Staples Inn, our destination for the first three days of our honeymoon. Host/owner Rachelle created the most delicious breakfasts imaginable, no small feat with my numerous dietary restrictions. Every breakfast was unique and creative, complete with main dish, fresh fruit, a smoothie and an additional treat. The option of breakfast in our room was gratefully accepted. Our Giverny Room was clean and thoughtfully decorated with antiques and artwork. Sheets were soft, the bed and pillows very comfortable. The historic Inn is beautifully appointed and well-maintained throughout its interior. The exterior and garden show some need of attention.

Enjoyed great breakfast with other guests in the morning. You can request breakfast be delivered to your room. Walking distance to downtown Stillwater with shopping and lots of restaurants.

      Our first stay at a B and B was delightful! My husband surprised me for my birthday with a night’s stay at this lovely inn in Stillwater. He booked the Carriage House, shown in the photo. It is separate from the main house, so is very private. The place was beautiful, very clean and extremely roomy, and includes a huge jacuzzi bath and a reading area. The downtown Stillwater area is within walking distance, so convenient. Rachelle, the innkeeper, is very friendly and accommodating. She brought us a welcome tray of wine, cheese and crackers upon our arrival. The garden is pretty and I enjoyed sitting and reading there the next morning. The breakfast Rachelle prepared and served was incredible! So delicious and the table setting was beautiful. We highly recommend a stay here. Thanks, Rachelle! More

      My sister, daughter and niece had a wonderful night staying at Aurora Inn.
    From the first moment we arrived we felt welcomed and comfortable!
    From the check-in, in the lovely front living room of such an elegant home,
    To the wine offered on the front porch. It could not of been nicer. You can tell immediately that this house has been taken well care of with all the special touches.
    The rooms are so lovely and roomy and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious!
    We will definitely return to stay!

      This B & B is warm, welcoming, and the perfect place for a quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle. We were greeted by Rachelle the inn keeper with a glass of wine, fruit & cheese when we checked in. We stayed in the Riverview Suite which has a four season porch and ensuite bath with a jetted tub. The bed and bedding were extremely comfortable and did I mention the romantic gas fireplace? The 3 course breakfasts were amazing. Loved the pumpkin baked pancake and fruit cobbler. Breakfast was so ample that we didn't have to eat until dinner! We didn't have a T.V. in our room (didn't miss it) which provided the opportunity for two big games of Scrabble in the parlor. Loved getting to know Rachelle and the history of this beautiful Victorian home. More
