A Holiday Welcome

The Aurora Staples Inn invites the public to its open house.

Beautifully decorated for the holidays, the Aurora Staples Inn in Stillwater will open its doors to guests during a series of three open-house events. On the Sundays leading up to Christmas, the Victorian bed and breakfast will provide tours of all the main areas and guest rooms.

Guests can enjoy Christmas cookies, fudge, coffee and warm cider while sitting by the fire in the library. Cathy Helmberger, who owns the property with her husband Jerry, says they love the holiday season and are excited to host the event for the second year in a row.
