Pleasant Rowland, the founder of American Girls put millions of dollars into the city of Aurora, home of Wells College where she went to school. She bought an inn, two fabulous homes and even a former dormitory and refurbished them beautifully. They are the best place I can imagine to stay when visiting the Finger Lakes. Of course, because they... More

Stayed here the weekend of the Mackenzie-Childs barn sale(that was hot and crowded). Our room was large and nicely furnished with a terrific porch. The staff was superb! Every person we spoke with was helpful and enthusiastic. Not much in the small village and limited dining options. The Inn has a restaurant serving breakfast and dinner.

My son and daughter-in-law were married at this hotel, and I always wanted to come back and stay here. (We did not stay here for the wedding.) We got the opportunity when we were driving home from a trip to Quebec, and it did not disappoint. Everything about this place is pretty much perfect. We had a room with two... More

This inn is gorgeous - sits right on Lake Cayuga. We were on our way to friends for dinner and the wine shop was closed. We heard about Wine Night from a helpful shop owner - wine 1/2 price, plus you can buy a bottle at the bar to take home. Unheard of in Ontario. Super helpful bar tender and... More

My husband and I took a one day trip to Cayuga Lake, one of the Finger Lakes, and stayed at the Aurora Inn. The Inn is actually 4 buildings, each renovated beautifully, and each very different from the others. We were in the newly opened Wallcourt Hall, which is very bright, modern yet homey, and has the feel of a... More

The inn is lovely - set right on the river. The woman who checked us in was warm and gracious. Our room was immaculate, with a huge bathroom and a large balcony with rocking chairs. We walked over to one of the other inns (there are four inns under the same management), and the manager there took us on a... More

We have stayed in many B&Bs over the last few years, from New York to North Carolina to New Jersey to Key West and the Aurora Inn is in our top 3 for sure. Beautiful house, gorgeous rooms, charming staff and a lovely setting on the lake. We enjoyed everything about our trip - the fireplace, the wine/cheese, coffee and... More

We stayed only for 1 night last year and it was wonderful. We had taken a trip around the Finger Lakes and stopped off before visiting Ithaca. It was just so relaxing and peaceful. The staff were brilliant, and Aurora has a restaurant and bar (i think owned by the same company) within walking distance. However it was just great... More

It's not the easiest place to book a room -- they are often fully booked for weddings, which you certainly can understand when you see the beautiful setting. But if you can, book a room and then make a reservation for dinner at 7:30 (later in the summer)... make sure you're having dinner at sunset. Outstanding. As is the food:... More
