The Inns of Aurora in Aurora, New York
Included in a smattering of enclaves throughout the United States that preserve the nation's rich history, the heritage village of Aurora is one such place. Located in New York's Finger Lakes region, approximate four hours northwest of Manhattan, it's home to gracious traditions and the elegant Aurora Inn. This Select Registry associate, dating from 1833, epitomizes the refined Federal style. Ten impeccably restored guestrooms showcase original fireplaces, antiques and a fine arts collection, while a stunning restaurant serves classic American fare overlooking Cayuga Lake.
The inn and the village are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and you'll have a hard time deciding what to do first. You may decide to linger in your rocker on your balcony, where you can spend hours simply gazing across the lake at rolling farmland and vineyards. At the same time, you'll feel the call of the inn's bicycles and canoes, which invite laid-back explorations of the local area. This region is also ideal for leisurely country drives, and you'll certainly want to direct yourselves to the Cayuga Lake and Seneca Lake wine trails for a day of wine tastings and sampling gourmet goodies.

Reviews for The Inns of Aurora
Moved over to the Inn after staying one night at Rowland House. Needed to move due to a private party had booked RH and EBM house and several rooms at the Inn. 4 of us girls were given Room 8. This room is the entire attic floor of the Inn. You open your door and then up a set of stairs to a LARGE room with 2 double beds, sitting room, walk in closet, kitchenette, and large bathroom with separate shower and jetted tub. Sky lights in both sitting room and bath. You can watch the stars from your bed at night and the birds in the morning. Even though it did not have a balcony and had a limited view you did not feel claustrophobic. We remarked that having coffee and scones delivered in a basket each morning was like Christmas morning to us coffee lovers. The room was perfect for our exploring the area and a home to come back to each evening. Had dinner and breakfast at the Inn and both were wonderful and had lunch across the street at the Fargo and was delighted. Sitting down by the lake with a glass of wine is not to be missed.

We stayed at the Rowland House property for the weekend and we were extremely impressed. This is our second time staying at the Aurora Inn properties (first time was at the actual Aurora Inn - also amazing) and we will definitely keep coming back. They take care of you the moment you walk in the door. This property offered complimentary scones and coffee/tea in the morning and complimentary wine/beer with a cheese plate at sunset. The Rowland House has its own innkeeper who is very welcoming and informative. She is there for you throughout the day and evening, which gives this property a homey, quaint feel while still providing 5 star amenities. There is a bonfire by the lake every night with complimentary s'mores. You can even dock your boat at their dock. Each room has their own character and views - we stayed in a room that overlooked the lake, which was stunning. Our bathroom had in-floor radiant heat - amazing for the cooler Autumn mornings. There are 3 beautiful sitting rooms which have board games and even binoculars to bird watch and look out onto the lake. Overall, an amazing place. The Aurora Inn properties are all beautiful and truly one-of-a kind. A perfect weekend getaway.
We were so impressed with the Rowland House and our dinner at the Aurora Inn. We had stayed at the Inn years ago, and the trip this time was even better. Loved the Rowland House and the lawn surrounding it. We had a picture perfect autumn day and were able to sit outside most of the afternoon, enjoying the view and the complimentary wine and cheese in the late afternoon.

We went to Aurora for a quick weekend getaway and could not have asked for a more perfect setting in which to unwind and relax. We stayed at the Rowland House. The lakefront location was stunning, the home itself was decorated beautifully, but what really made the weekend perfect was the graciousness and hospitality of our innkeeper, Cody. She made us feel so comfortable and welcome that it was almost like being home, only better! The property is so spacious and well suited for groups, that we look forward to returning with family and friends.

Drove up here from Ithaca (and way Sth before that) on an explore the Finger Lakes road trip'. Rang and booked a Room rather late - a day or 2 before. Delighted to hear they had a Room, shocked at the price, but pacified by the assurances from the Reviews, Pictures etc. Right by the lake in a quaint not built-up town, nice neighbourhood etc etc - it must be really nice at this price. Lets do it. IF one is IN the old and original lake-side Inn, with the fabulous views, character, charm, grand spacious rooms, then this might be quite nice. We, however, were not, but were promised a very nice room in the newly restored (in 2015, we gathered later) Wallcourt Hall. Room was minute. Beautifully newly decorated, but tiny. Brilliantly ergonomically designed, as it could barely accommodate the two of us and minimal luggage. TV did not work and Reception's attempts failed - "they were newly installed and I am not sure they are wired up yet". Bathroom was so small, it was definitely single occupancy. No view whatsoever. There is/was NO Bar. There is/was NO Restaurant, except for across the lawns and the Main Road. After Dinner, one could sit in the Lounge, and drink your own 'brought with you' beverage. Breakfast comprised coffee and a muffin - both good to be fair. But that was your lot, unless you were prepared to walk over the lawns and over to the other side of the Street. Parking was great - right outside Wallcourt Hall in their own car park. Shame one then had to lugg it up the flight of steps to the front door with no one available or able to offer to help. There must be something about this area and Lake Cayuga of which I remain unaware. Posh no way. Unless, of course, you equate huge expense and newly restored buildings as 'posh'. Damned expensive - Yep.
