Always nice to wander the Roycroft Inn and the surrounding area. The history here is interesting and the on-going renovations will make it even better. The Copper Shop gift shop has lovely, although expensive, items and many are from Roycroft master artisans. Check out the Roycroft website for maps and times of shops and museums before you come.

Just an amazing place ... incredible that so much of the campus has been preserved. It is not perfect, it's not a Disney experience, there is still much work to be done. But all the bones are there and it's an extremely important cultural resource. TAKE THE GUIDED TOUR! Ours was terrific, and you will get so much more out... More
I'd been here before half a dozen years ago but this time there was less to see. The grounds seemed under construction and the donor sidewalk unkempt.

Very interesting attraction. Learned the story of the Roycroft artisans and the personalities that spawned this beautiful place. Had a personable tour guide who took us on a walking tour of the property. The inn was bustling with Sunday brunch, and guests were sitting out on the porch enjoying the lavish spread. Easy to get to, and afterwards, a couple... More
The Roycroft Campus, Elbert Hubbard's odd effort to combine a utopia with a capitalistic enterprise. He brought the world to East Aurora in the late 1800s, early 1900s. You can get a contemporary's view by reading "Elbert Hubbard of East Aurora" by Felix Shay, out of print but available. At the very least, the chapel, the Roycroft Inn, the gift... More
