Beautiful Escape
We stayed at the Zabriske House. The Innkeeper was friendly and attentive. The house is beautifully decorated and pristine. Our room was spacious and clean. The bathroom is updated. We enjoyed. Wine and cheese in the living room by the fire and homemade granola and yogurt in the dining area. We walked to the nearby restaurant for a delicious meal. Also, spent a day at the spa which is a few miles away. This is our second visit. Highly recommend!

8/10 Very Good

Enjoyed our stay at Aurora. Staff in particular was outstanding. In particular Mary Ellen was extremely accommodating. Some what disappointed in the room size, as it was very small. Would recommend this property.

8/10 Very Good

After a disappointing check-in experience, the overall experience was fine. The property picture prominently displayed on the website as "the inn" is not the inn, but the spa located on a hill, not by the water, as the picture indicates. The Inn is not one building, but several buildings (inns) along the main road, with varying quality of accommodations. None of this is apparent when one goes to book a room. The in-season rates are very high and one expects to get a rewarding experience upon checking in - and can get very disappointed when faced with reality. Also, in the same vein, please do not market as "breakfast included" when only serving, coffee, granola bars and such, with breakfast being a separate item at a restaurant a few minutes walk away. While the setting is nice, having accuracy in marketing materials will help people know what to expect and not be unpleasantly surprised..

Nice, quiet getaway
We stayed in the Zabriskie House, and it was really lovely. The Innkeepers are helpful and there when you need them. Our room was beautiful and had a little porch off the side that overlooked Aurora. The spa is unbelievable, and the dining options, though limited, are excellent. We'll be back.
