We love Aura Soma Lava. We always have a good time. This last trip we took was a little mixed up, we took all the kids and grand kids (9 total) and booked the cottage, big mistake, the cottage is more a couples retreat. After we brought this up to Evelee, the owner of Aura Soma Lava, she was more... More

We were warmly welcomed right away to this charming inn, learning about everything around the town, to do, dine and explore. The staff went way beyond courteous, offered advice, told stories, and felt like family. The room was efficient, charming and clean, there was everything you needed in the room, with a kitchenette and a spa-tub, except for a cork... More

We booked here from a recommendation from a friend that had stayed many many times before, and we were not disappointed! We stayed in the Meadows house. Our own private hot spring tub was an awesome touch! The grounds were open, spacious, and green... large enough to play in. The river that ran through the grounds was a charming, romantic... More

We stayed in the courtyard, it's my favorite place to be in Lava! The grounds are great, plenty of room to play frisbee or go for a walk. The private pool is so nice and peaceful, right by the river. Location is perfect for all Lava activities. I just love this place!

We decided this is a, "must return here" place. Rooms are clean with charm. We loved The Cottage. It has an awesome view of the meadow. It has a private hot springs tub which is soul soothing. The other pool is just around the corner. In just a couple of minutes you can be in cute shops, if you want,... More

Decent for a small town. Stayed in the courtyard 9. The room was nice and had basic kitchen supplies. I was sad to find out the hot tub outside wasn't filled and the front desk had closed. That was the only reason I had chosen that room. I would stay again but just check with front desk to make sure... More

We rented the Conference Center and 3 of the courtyard rooms for our yearly trip to Lava with our family of 20. Conference Center was the perfect gathering place for all of us. Kitchen was great to prepare big breakfasts and we used the BBQ outside for burgers & bratts. Hot pool was great for big group although one day... More

My girlfriend and I stayed for just one night and loved it. We have stayed at a few places in lava and this was by far the best for the money! The private hot pot on deck was excellent. The swamp cooler worked great for a hot summer day.

To my surprise I was very disappointed with our stay last night. We stayed in the cape cod house. We were traveling with our children and the floors were so creaky that every time I got up to make a bottle, everyone in the whole house woke up. Also I was very creeped out while I was making the bottle... More
