“The Inn was great for our one-year anniversary. The view of the sunrise from our room was stunning. We would stay here again!”
— Rebecca Demessie


“We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the St. Croix Room. We love the gas fire place located next to the hot tub. The service was wonderful. We had wine and snacks when we got there and the bed was very comfortable. A very quiet location. Perfect for our stay! The room had beautiful antique decor and they even had a Christmas tree in the room. Definitely would love to go back.”

“We stayed at Aurora Staples for my birthday. We checked in at 555, merely five minutes before the website said they stopped serving the wine and snacks upon check in. Kathy greeted us and gave us a tour. We had our friends with us and she didn't mind at all. She made us feel comfortable and at home. Nobody was staying in the other rooms so she let us choose our room. This was a nice gesture as we decided to switch rooms. However, after choosing our room she went back into her portion of the house and left us wondering what about the wine and snacks...My husband had to knock on their door to request them. The husband was very nice about it and promptly brought them out, however, I don't feel we should have to ask. So make sure you are there way before six. The house was nicely decorated with a beautiful Christmas tree. Christmas music played downstairs and details on the wood flooring was fantastic. The towels in the room were plush and smelled freshly cleaned. There was a random half filled Suave body wash in the room by the bath. Not sure what that was about. Also, the gas fire place was in a odd location. In a corner right next to the bed. So you could not see if while on the bed, only from the tub, but it was quite far away at that point. Also, our cd player didn't work. There was a fridge outside our door where pop and water were free for the taking. Coffee was brought to our room at 8 without any disturbances. Breakfast was served downstairs in the dining room. The food was good, but I would have preferred the food delivered to our room. At the end of your stay a tip is expected, so please consider that into your price. Overall the stay was good but not great.”
