Our Guests Say it Best

Delightful Respite

Although the setting is elegant, the accommodations sublime, and the food exquisite, it was the remarkably personable staff that made our visit so successful and downright memorable! Each and every staff member we encountered, from the manager to the maintenance team, greeted us and took time to chat with us. The relationships we enjoyed throughout the various inns and spa were both personal and memorable, and that’s what will keep us coming back! Many thanks to you all for a delightful respite!

Best in the Finger Lakes

Best boutique hotel and spa experience in the Finger Lakes and Ithaca area. The service, food, location, and amenities/activities are all top notch. The description and pictures on their website are all accurate and they do deliver on everything they say in their website. If you are looking for some much needed self care and to just get away from it all, the Inns of Aurora is an excellent choice. Big thumbs up!

A Great Stay

My family stayed at the Inns of Aurora for the weekend. The weather was awful, but it honestly didn’t matter. Zabriskie House is beautifully renovated and immaculate. The grounds are incredibly maintained. Because of the rain, we spent a lot of time sitting and reading on the rocking chairs in the front porch. It was so relaxing. Really good coffee in the morning, wine and cheese in the late afternoon, and s’mores around the fire pit at night—the latter being an opportunity to meet some of the house’s other guests. A special hat tip to Caleb the concierge, an exceptionally nice person who could not be more welcoming or accommodating. We are all looking forward to our next stay.

Couples Weekend at Rowland House

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Rowland House this past weekend and had an amazing time. The property and surrounding area was gorgeous. I highly recommend Aurora Cooks with Chef Lou—she was fabulous and the food was great!
