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.

On the historic register both the town and the hotel provide an excellent getaway and fun driving around Cayuga lake. Wine tasting opportunities abound around the area along with great dining and small town events.

We like the Aurora Inn dining room in the early spring and fall because staff offers the same high quality as they do in summer without the noise and bustle of summer. The deck is closed to outdoor dining so the doors to the deck are closed as well. This serves to keep the climate inside the restaurant stable and the insects out. The menu is getting smaller in terms of choices but is still adequate. Service is always outstanding and the prices are on the high side but certainly fair.

There aren't aren't enough stars to show how wonderful our stay was! We actually stayed in the E. B. Morgan house & I was in total amazement the entire time! Our Innkeeper, Maryann was most gracious & made us feel welcome from the moment we walked in the front door to the moment we all hugged to say goodbye. It was truly an outstanding experience! Thank you Maryann and all those running the Inns of Aurora for preserving these amazing & historic homes!

Feeling pampered and surrounded by quality linens, beautiful room decor, top notch staff, and a view. I have probably the smallest room in the Inn and it feels spacious and so comfy. The small town of Aurora is a little treasure and this Inn is the heart. Can't wait to return.
