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...

Just took niece for her special lunch at the Aurora Inn. The Inn is lovely and historic in a nice town. Have lunch outside on the deck that overlooks Cayuga Lake. Lunch was ok but not as expected, I would have liked to see more choices on Children's Menu and daily specials . I opted for chowder and a salad...

The "Inns" of Aurora are first class! While we stayed at the main Inn we toured them all - and you can't go wrong. They are stylish, clean, well maintained, and have such a wonderful history. The rooms were so nicely furnished

On a lazy summer weekend, we stayed at the brand new addition to the Inns, Walcourt Hall. Everything was spankingly new, with rooms and common areas splashed with an eclectic, colorful and beautiful collection of art. The great pleasure offered by the Inn is the free use by guests of their lovely grounds which are on Cayuga lake. For urban...

We loved our stay at The Aurora Inn. We had a charming room that felt like we were in our own little flat. We stayed in the Lake View King Suite.

This hotel on the lake was a nice surprise. My wife and I stayed in the Wallcourt building. The building reminded us of a old college dorm. Our room was on the second floor and our room was small. The mattress was not comfortable but the pillows and comforter were good. The bathroom was nicely decorated and towels were nice...

This classic Inn is really a mansion on the lake and you have access to all of goodies it offers from beautifully furnished rooms and decks to your own boat dock-and Jackie is there to orient you and get you settled. The guest rooms are very generous in size with great lake views and quiet. There is a wine and...
