My wife and some family friends decided to take a weekend getaway and stay at the Aurora Inn and we are so happy we did. We drove our boat down Cayuga lake and got to tie it up off the Inns docks while we stayed the night. The next day we drove the boat down to Ithaca stopping at Vineyards... More

Such a charming place is staffed with the most welcoming people. Before dinner you can relax by the lake or enjoy the veranda. Ahi Tuna lettuce wraps were excellent as was the Foie Gras on buttered brioche with raspberry sauce and sliced almonds. Hubby's Short Ribs and salt potatoes were fork tender and flavorful. Some dishes such as my delicious... More

Showed up at the last minute on a Saturday evening after another highly recommended restaurant was booked solid. The staff was very accommodating. A wedding was being held on the lawn, so we were able to enjoy the music from the verandah where we also had a beautiful view of the lake and the approaching sunset. The food was great... More

Lakeside beauty wrapped in elegance Would have travelled to this wedding wherever it was held. How lucky were we that it brought us to Aurora and specifically the Aurora Inn?!?!?!!!! Town is as quaint and peaceful as it gets. Rich history. Lovely people. Spectacular meals. Sincere and gracious hospitality. Suffice it to say, a little bit of heaven😊. Must be... More

Well I have eaten there many times over the years, but this was my first time staying overnight at the Aurora Inn. I was there for the insanity that is called THE MACKENZIE CHILDS BARN SALE last week from which I am still recuperating. The beautiful Aurora Inn is on the lake in the charming village of Aurora New York,... More

I visited the Aurora Inn for a friend's wedding ceremony and reception. The Halibut dinner blew me away almost as much as the gorgeous lakeside view. The historic Inn itself looked majestic set directly next to Cayuga lake. I hope to come back one day and stay at the Inn as soon as possible.

The setting, the food, the service were all wonderful and far above the competition. Our server Grace was truly amazing! She was the quintessential hospitality professional. Her personality, knowledge, passion, thoughtfulness and care throughout our entire meal made this a most memorable evening. The food was so flavorful with a true commitment to local fresh ingredients. We started with the... More

A wonderful evening in a beautiful setting! The Aurora Inn staff were extremely accommodating and welcoming to our group of Wells College alumnae. Management staff went above and beyond to make our visit special-we will be back! A tradition in the making...

Where to start! My husband and I got married at the Inn last year and this past weekend we revisited to celebrate our first anniversary. The food is just out of this world and is worth every single cent. I ordered the seasonal strawberry and beet salad for an appetizer which I paired with - not so traditional - stuffed... More

The Inns of Aurora are unique and marvelous! Five star experience on Lake Cayuga with great amenities! The food at the Inn, and at the Fargo (bar across from the Inn), is amazing. Enjoy a glass of wine while watching the sun set on Lake Cayuga.
