One of our daughters gave my husband and I an overnight at one of the Inns of Aurora to use before the end of April. With busy schedules and pets to consider, we almost ran out of time.

Dale at the Rowland house was great! We had a wonderful room and a nice dinner at the inn. Even though we booked a room at the Inn we were very happy with the upgrade that was offered to us. Dale even gave us a $50 gift card towards dinner

We had a wonderful stay at the Aurora Inn. Our room and private bathroom were spacious, well appointed, and well taken care of. We overlooked the village rather than the lake but to us this wasn't a problem the view of the village was serene and there was no noise to speak of. We had a balcony with rocking chairs...

We recently spent 2 nights at the Aurora Inn's Rowland House. It was outstanding. From the time we checked in to the time we left everything was perfection.
