We recently returned from a visit to the Finger Lakes and enjoyed a wonderful one night stay at the Aurora Inn in Aurora, NY overlooking beautiful Cayuga Lake. We hated to leave this inn and when we go back will definitely stay more than one night. This beautifully restored historic inn is exceptional in all ways. Our room was gorgeous, spacious and decorated with the highest quality furnishings one could hope for when away from home and anticipating a special vacation. We had a lake view room with a private door to the porch furnished with rocking chairs and a view of Lake Cayuga. The marble bathroom was right out of the best magazines and had all that one could hope for. The bathroom was stocked with top of the line bath products and fabulous towels. Our room did not include a bath, but instead a gorgeous glass shower with a marble seat. Check the website for rooms that have baths with jacuzzi's, etc. This inn definitely has them. By the way, the website is excellent and the pictures of each room accurate. The staff was welcoming, friendly and accommodating. We had a fantastic dinner in the dining room that evening and as our meal was ending the sunset over the lake was exquisite. In the morning the inn serves a full, menu ordered breakfast, included in the price of your room. No continental buffet here! Aurora is a beautiful, small college town and a walk along the main street is relaxing, fun and the lake is always right beside you. The Aurora Inn is a very special inn and one definitely worth visiting...especially since inns of this ilk seem to be very rare these days!
