We rented one of the motel rooms, unit #1. It had the same basic feel that I would expect from one of their cabins, very cozy, rustic and homey. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and we will definitely stay again if we can!!

Great place to stay and would highly recommend. It felt like a home that I would love to have and hated to leave. I will be staying there again ! The price was great , the owners friendly and very helpful. I can't say enough good things about it. And the bed was awesome. Got a great nights sleep.

Kids enjoyed the pool and air hockey table. I enjoyed having a grill to cook out on and a full kitchen to make breakfast in... More

My boyfriend and I planned a trip to Kentucky so we could ride UTVs at Turkey Bay. After discussing our preferences for a place to stay, we thought it would be nice for us to stay off site at a cottage/motel with its own television, shower and toilet. After doing some research we decided that Aurora's would be a nice... More
