The Roycroft Campus in East Aurora, New York, is the best preserved and most complete complex of buildings remaining in the United States of the "guilds" that evolved as centers of craftsmanship and philosophy during the late 19th century. The Campus, designated a National Historic Landmark district (NHL) in 1986, contains nine of the original 14 structures including the Inn, the Chapel, the Print Shop, the Furniture Shop, and the Copper Shop. You are invited to come visit and discover the rebirth of the Roycroft Campus as if Elbert Hubbard and the Roycrofters never left.

Yes it is a gift shop and restaurant in a historical setting. But it's a very nice gift shop and a very good restaurant. They say there are artists in the summer. The setting is nice but winter is too cold to just walk around soaking up history. Good place to stop if you're passing thru.

I rarely get excited about "gift shops" but the campus gift shop (artisan shop) is utterly fantastic. Truly unique and wide ranging offerings. Maybe the best I have ever found. It's hidden in the old copper house. ABSOLUTELY A MUST TO FIND. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

If interested in an Arts & Crafts compound this is the place to visit. Hotel, dining, exhibition and artists (not necessarily Arts and Craft style) studios in the beautiful quaint town of East Aurora. Hotel is lovely but expensive, dining is OK not my favorite but worth a meal to enjoy the architecture . Many fabulous local restaurants within a... More

Begun in the mid 1800's by Elbert Hubard to train craftsmen in printing, woodworking, copper craft. Similar to those in England, it began to decline when the founder & his wife died in the sinking of the Lusitania in 1915, the campus struggled up to the mid 80's as a Resturant & gift shop for craft items when it closed,...

We thoroughly enjoyed with all our senses the lovely environment of the campus, overnight at the beautifully restored and maintained Roycroft Inn and delicious meals on the candlelit outdoor promenade. The tour was informative giving us a deeper appreciation and understanding of the arts and crafts movement in this country. What a gift!

Stay here above all others! Quaint and quiet. We stayed here one night during our visit to western New York State. The Roycroft Inn was actually less expensive than a competitor we stayed at the day before! We had a four room suite that was absolutely gorgeous! Extremely quiet during the night. We had dinner at the Inn and was... More

I highly recommend staying at the Roycroft Inn and then walking the Campus. We enjoyed talking with Arts & Crafts Woodworker, Jim Cordes, who is quite inspiring!
