  •   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!

      Lovely Victorian charm. Quiet. Super clean. Immaculate. The only sound on the porch was the wind rustling the American flag and we spent a lot of time reading on the porch or walking to town to shop or dine. Rachelle is a lovely person and skilled inn-keeper. Breakfast was delightful as was the conversation around the table. One couple from Sweden, one from NYC, one from Minneapolis and one from N' Michigan. We stayed in the St. Croix Suite and could have moved in for a year. A return trip. Soon.

      Rachelle is a sweet and attentive hostess. And a pretty good cook. Each breakfast was a thoughtful and tasty upgrade from the usual version of each receipe. But my wife us still talking about the pumpkin pancakes.
    In case you're wondering about a February visit, the heat works just fine. The high temps were 20 degrees, but we bundled up and walked down to Main Street. The restaurants were full of happy people, and there are good antique / flea market opportunities, as well as upscale shopping.

      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 wife and I took a couple of days to get away and celebrate our second anniversary. We were delighted that we were able to stay in the Carriage House! We have to admit because of being there on a Monday and Tuesday in the winter, we were spoiled being the only guests at the Aurora Staples Inn! However, we got the impression that we would have been spoiled if the place had been full.
    The owner/manager, Rachelle, exuded the kind of graceful personality that would make anyone feel like they were the most important guests there.
    The breakfasts served were opulent and delicious! The bed was extremely comfortable, the Carriage House was cozy and the atmosphere was charming. We loved the jacuzzi and fireplace! Rachel and her staff made us feel very at home yet we had all the privacy we desired.
    We highly recommend Aurora Staples Inn; we cannot imagine anyone being disappointed!

      We stayed in the St. Croix Suite for our 29th anniversary and this was our first time staying in a bed and breakfast. Rachelle did a wonderful job sharing the history of this unique house-very impressed that quite a bit of the original woodwork is still in place! After we were shown to our room, Rachelle brought us up some wine and a plate of cheese, crackers and grapes. We were impressed with how well the windows opened given the age of the house and listened to the birds for awhile before heading downtown for dinner. The bed was extremely comfortable and we LOVED the sheets. Breakfast in the morning was quiche, yogurt with fruit, sausage and a blueberry scone - extremely yummy! The shower in the bathroom was amazing as well as the soaps! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be recommending this lovely B&B to all our friends! Thank you Rachelle! More

  •   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!
