This place was perfect! From the moment you stepped in the door you felt at home. The room was great with a lot of room, comfy bed, and a nice bathroom. Aurora is a beautiful town but EXTREMELY SMALL! It's great if you're just looking for some relaxation time or a history tour, but other than that, there aren't a... More

Stayed in Room 2 which was lovely. Room is nicely appointed and has a beautiful view. We stayed for two nights and had dinner at the Fargo the first night and at the Inn the second night. Both meals were excellent in their own culinary genres. My only complaint was the hostess at the Inn during dinner. She would constantly... More

We stayed on valentines night in room 10. We were greeted warmly by the front desk and shown to our room. Great room, clean and comfortable. The food was delicious at dinner and breakfast. The apple and oat pancakes were heaven! We will stay again, hopefully soon!

We spent a weekend at this Inn and had a fantastic time. The location is charming and has great views of the lake. The room was big and very well furnished and decorated. The staff are amazing and the food is second to none. We will definitely stay here again.

This was our first (but not our last!) stay at the Aurora Inn. Everything was wonderful, from the website reservation to our departure.

Every detail met to perfection......even a carafe of coffee on cue at 7:30am. Our experience was relaxing and renewing and worth every penny! We felt we received so much for our investment.
