The Inns of Aurora is a unique collection of five boutique hotels in a storybook setting. Each hotel has their own special character, with many of the interiors specifically designed by their founder, Pleasant Rowland. Each room is also informed by its place in the house's original architecture. The structures offer a variety of room sizes and configurations, with a combination of balcony rooms and fireplace rooms throughout. Designer finishes and original, modern art create a sophisticated and relaxing environment that guests are sure to enjoy.

Aurora Inn
Built in 1833 by Colonel E.B. Morgan, the Aurora Inn was long the favored resting-place for travelers to Aurora, New York, a major stop along the Erie Canal in the Finger Lakes region. Today, the Aurora Inn strikes a perfect balance of historic charm and modern luxury.

E.B. Morgan House
Once the private residence of Colonel Edwin Barber Morgan, co-founder of the New York Times and American Express, E.B. Morgan House combines luxurious modern aesthetics with the unparalleled beauty of an historic stone mansion. E.B. Morgan House offers seven stylish guestrooms—each with private marble baths—exquisite living spaces, gracious porches, and an exceptional collection of original modern art. Guests are invited to enjoy E.B. Morgan House as they would a home, with the sumptuous comforts of the library, parlor, dining room, and pantry.​

Rowland House
Constructed on the shore of Cayuga Lake by Alonzo Morgan Zabriskie in 1903, Rowland House is encompassed by ancient trees, an historic Grecian temple, and a spectacular two-story boathouse. Rowland House offers ten chic guestrooms, each with a private marble bath, vibrant color schemes, original modern art, stunning views, and luxurious linens. Four guestrooms — along with a private lounge — comprise the entire third floor, decorated with the distinctive and playful designs of MacKenzie-Childs.

Zabriskie House
Originally the home of Robert Zabriskie, grandson of E.B. Morgan, Zabriskie House was built in 1904 as the brother home to Rowland House. Located in the heart of Aurora, Zabriskie House offers eleven guestrooms and a number of gracious gathering spaces: a double parlor with cozy fireplaces, a 22-person wood-paneled dining room available exclusively for private events, and a stunning three-story grand staircase. A broad, columned front porch offers picturesque views of Main Street and one of Aurora’s grand Gingko trees, planted in 1856. The home’s private outdoor patio with a firepit serves as an ideal gathering spot on late summer evenings and crisp autumn nights.

Wallcourt Hall
Wallcourt Hall was built in the heart of Aurora in 1909 for Miss Goldsmith’s School for Girls, a well-respected preparatory school. It later served as a dormitory for Wells College, and, for a brief time, as a studio for MacKenzie-Childs, maker of distinctive and whimsical tableware and home décor. Today, Wallcourt Hall welcomes guests with striking modern style. Its 16 guestrooms offer designer details, with custom furniture, Italian fabrics, and exceptional modern art.
