The Aurora Inn is one of our favorite getaway spots among many options. We've always stayed in the Main house because we love the lakeside rooms with king beds, and for having the restaurant right downstairs ( no walking outside in cold weather or driving involved). The historic inn is impeccably kept, and the staff is universally wonderful and helpful....

The Inns of Aurora consist of three renovated, restored, and re-purposed mansions, plus the !833 Aurora Inn itself, in this small but beautiful village on the east shore of Cayuga Lake. After looking at the website photographs and checking the individual room rates, we chose to stay at the Inn, partly for its excellent dining room. Our three-day excursion at...

Such a peaceful and relaxing place! Coming from Queens, NY the drive up was beautiful (well worth the 4 hour drive). It was such a great change of pace and to see the landscape change as well as the attitude of the people become more and more warm was such a mood changer. To be quite honest, being a couple...

We recently stayed at Aurora Inn and it was exceptional. There were six couples and we all knew we were in some place special, from the beautiful decks with rockers overlooking the lake to our spacious rooms and baths, not a single detail was overlooked. Staff was very friendly and accommodating, including dining room staff. Josh was our waiter for...

The different Inn buildings have been renovated and are done beautifully. Top notch!!! However, the people that run the place are not welcoming. Not rude, but not inviting either. Never had training in customer service certainly. Beds are comfy. Some nit picks. Centipede in bathroom. No ESPN for husband or FOX for me. Phone reception is horrible, but apparently that's...

Absolutely gorgeous! The Aurora Inn is the place to stay to sit back, relax, and reconnect with family and friends. We stayed there to celebrate a family birthday. My husband and I had a spacious room overlooking the lake and the view was so serene. Our room was impeccable and the bed was comfy. Each morning, coffee, muffins and the...

We stayed at the Aurora Inn one night as part of a long weekend in the Finger Lakes region. Our room was wonderful, with access to a large comfortable porch and windows facing the lake. Everything was top-notch and we felt very cared for. We particularly enjoyed the coffee and muffins delivered to our door at the time of our...

We stayed at the Roland House- one of three Inns that make up the Inns of Aurora. Our innkeeper, Nedra, was super professional and accommodating. She served local wines at happy hour and fresh coffee and tasty muffins in the morning. The grounds of the Roland House are right on Lake Cayuga and offer astounding views. We would recommend room...

The Inn and the restaurant are lovely properties on the shore of the lake. However, when we arrived we were surprised to find out that our rooms were not in the inn itself but in the recently renovated properties across the street. We expressed our surprise to hotel staff, who told us that we should have known that our room...

This Inn is absolutely beautiful! The attention to detail in every nook and cranny is truly perfection. We received a warm welcome the minute we walked through the door. We loved our room which had a beautiful view of the lake and a sweet deck with rocking chairs. The bathroom was gorgeous too! I highly recommend for a special, romantic...
