"Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.”
Matthew 5:9

March 2022: Breakfast and our latest updates

Due to COVID-19 outcomes, supplies and rising costs, Aurora Staples Inn has made the decision to move from a Bed & Breakfast to more of an AirBnB model. Effective January 1st 2022 we no longer are serving breakfast or wine/beer trays in our room packages. Instead we will be offering a gift certificate to one of the fabulous dining establishments in Stillwater for you to enjoy when you check in.

Enjoy a delicious breakfast at the following restaurants with your reservation:

Monday-Tuesday: Guests will receive a gift card to Oasis Cafe or Mon Petit Cheri (a $30 value)
Wednesday-Sunday: Guests will receive a breakfast voucher for the Historic Lowell Inn (a $30 value)

Safety continues to be our first priority.  We aim to protect our employees and guests, so we ask if you have an existing reservation and you are feeling sick or have symptoms of COVID19, please reschedule or cancel.  We continue to have high standards of service and health protocols.  We have increased cleaning and sanitizing protocols, etc.  Because of this, we cannot allow an early check-in. Please respect our check-in hours.

If anyone is ill or becomes ill at the Inn, we will ask you to leave immediately.  For your safety as well as ours and other guests, the use of masks are now required once again while staying at Aurora Staples Inn. Please remember to bring one with you. 

NEW FOR 2022!  Contactless Check-in and Contactless Check-outs – we’ll contact you within a few days before your reservation with an entry passcode number and instructions will be in their rooms. This is a new service we’re offering because of Covid19.

Because we are a small Inn in a small town, with a handful of rooms, we must limit the number of guests per room to two.  Wedding parties and receptions are currently on hold.

We hope to see you soon!  Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

– Rachelle, Innkeeper/Owner
