Our Guests Say it Best

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!

CHRIS K.

Stayed for business, will come back for pleasure.

I recently stayed at Rowland House—a very beautiful home. Our host, Anna, was welcoming and informative. The home has exceptional art and quiet space to enjoy. A light breakfast of granola bars and apples was served and was excellent along with great coffee. Excellent local wines and cheese were offered in the evening. Unfortunately, I was only there for a day but will come back to enjoy a longer stay.

Serenity at Sunset

We spent a weekend at Rowland House. The resort has several activities but we entertained ourselves by visiting a nearby winery and the MacKenzie-Childs Farmhouse. The best part of each evening was sitting in the rocking chairs on the back porch enjoying a complimentary glass of local wine and watching the sun set over Cayuga Lake.

Could not get better!

We rented the whole house for a surprise birthday weekend. Fabulous from beginning to end—the rooms, the house, the food, the furnishings, our concierge. Cannot recommend enough! Everyone was raving about it.
