The original country inn has been impeccably restored to appeal to today's most discerning guests.

The Inns of Aurora is a lovely venue for a little break. They assign an innkeeper to each building, and it's essentially like having a mini concierge. The property is beautiful. The staff is so friendly and accommodating. There is not a lot to do on site, but the access to other activities around the lake and in the area is great. Dining options are limited, but the food at the only restaurant is wonderful.

My husband and I visited for a four night escape. We enjoyed visiting local wineries, riding bikes, kayaking, getting a massage, and walking the nature trail. We had a nightly glass of wine overlooking the lake. We got one of the last rooms available and it was on the small side - especially for a four night stay. Next time I'd make sure I got a bigger room. The service was excellent. Make sure you book a treatment at the Spa and plan to spend a good part of the day relaxing there. The new spa facility is world class.

I stayed overnight and was greatly disappointed. Poor service for the price. I am an early riser and was floored by not being provided with coffee. They place coffee and “ snacks” in the hallway at 7:30 and there is no place you can even go. If they were not located right on the lake they would have nothing to offer. This establishment reeks of new money and a snobby attitude of the staff

Unbelievable experience. The EB Morgan house is a home you wish you owned. The decor in each room was amazing. The grounds were kept up well. The innkeeper Carolyn was another highlight of our trip. Definitely coming back next year.

We did not stay overnight at the inn but did spend an entire day at the spa. The set-up is ideal in nice weather - there are multiple outdoor (small) pools of varying temperatures. In addition, there is an outdoor co-ed sauna that can be shared by multiple people. The view overlooking Cayuga Lake is spectacular. The indoor facility/locker room was spacious and had great showers, a steam room, and sauna. The spa also solved the food issue - there was a cafe room which had a grazing menu which was included in the cost of your treatment. You could stop in as many times as you wanted throughout the day. Great yogurt parfaits, wraps, salad bar, etc. Really thoughtful amenity! Above the spa, there is a lovely relaxation room with an outdoor patio. I had a great massage with Deirdre, and the front desk, consisting of Emily, Louis, and Taylor, was so friendly and helpful. Cant wait to go back!
