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.

We had a wonderful stay. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and available. The room was spacious and just perfect. All the nice touches, turned down the bed and left mints on the pillows while we were out to dinner.

We stayed at the Main Inn, which has been remodeled to include every modern amenity without losing its historic charm. The rooms are beautiful, the grounds lovely, and the staff friendly and helpful. The food at the restaurant was delicious. I only wish they had rendered the fat off my duck breast more.

My husband and I just spent our "mini-moon" on Lake Cayuga at the Aurora Inn. We had a wonderful time at the Inn. We had room 10, which was very large, with a gorgeous bathroom and a very large balcony that overlooked the lake. The service was terrific and very friendly. We had all of our breakfasts and 3 dinners... More

Great place for brunch on a nice deck with view on the Cayuga lake. I shared the eggs Benedict (although quite spicy especially for a kid) & the Cobb salad with my oldest son, my youngest had 2 eggs & Sausage. Weliked the food although my husband was disappointed with the brioche French toast. Service was good.

The Aurora Inn will certainly not let you down for that special occasion. A beautiful setting on the edge of the lake - wonderful for sunsets, a stroll in the grounds or a quiet aperitif on the terrace before dinner. Supremely romantic. The food was lovely, and the service attentive. It is pricey, as you would expect, but for that... More

Father's Day 2014, I was told I could make a reservation for Brunch (this was not possible in the past). When we arrived, we were told, there was no Brunch only a Dinner would be served later in the afternoon. VERY EMBARRASSING! Made a reservation for 9/28 for my Daughter's Birthday. Requested Brunch, outside close to the balustrade. We arrived,... More

I took my husband here for a special birthday celebration. The room was gorgeous and very spacious. The gas fireplace added that special ambiance. The bathroom was beautifully appointed and quite large. The view of Cayuga Lake was spectacular. I only wish his birthday fell in a warmer month so we could have enjoyed the balcony!!

My wife and I spent a weekend at the Inn and we've already made reservations to return in the Fall. A beautiful experience, both with the accommodations and the restaurant at the Inn. The staff were welcoming, very friendly and more than willing to share tips about Aurora and environs. Our room, we decided, was one of the two loveliest... More
