About Inns of Aurora

** BOOKED FOR THE 2020 & 2021 WEDDING SEASONS **

Imagine a collection of historic inns, restored to luxury, with beautiful balconies and porches overlooking pristine Cayuga Lake. Picture sweeping lawns that roll down to the water’s edge, where the sun sets each night in a riot of golden hues. Add exquisite artwork, from-scratch meals, and all of the on-site assistance you never knew you needed. Visit and see why we’ve been hailed by BRIDES as the “perfect place for a weekend wedding” and by Country Living as “America’s best-kept secret.”



Our venue fee of $15,000 includes a private building for wedding day preparations such as hair and makeup, your lakeside ceremony, and an unforgettable reception for up to 200 guests.

Tented ceremonies at the Aurora Inn include our white sailcloth Sperry ceremony tent, padded white chairs, a one-hour rehearsal, planning, and on-site coordination.

After your ceremony, you and your guests will venture up our manicured lawns to our custom Sperry reception tent and our Lakeside Room for cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing.

In Aurora, food is never an afterthought. What really drives us is a passion for the farmland that surrounds us and the seasonal bounty it provides. Our food and beverage minimum for weddings is $20,000 plus service charge and tax.



Minimum guest count: 150 people

Rental of the Aurora Inn guestrooms required the night of the reception.

    Everything about the Inns of Aurora is perfect and we could not be happier that we chose this venue for our wedding!! Heather Davidson, their on-site coordinator, helped us every step of the way since day one – she was always available with advice and helpful tips on picking vendors, choosing day of details, or really any wedding related question of which we could think. She is AMAZING! The venue itself is also so beautiful and the entire wedding party was able to stay on site at the Inn and the other houses on the property. The staff was very accommodating and made sure everyone had a great time the entire weekend. On the wedding day itself, everything went absolutely seamlessly thanks to Heather and all the staff and we had nothing to worry about. All our guests raved about the Inn and how delicious the food was. I would 100% recommend the Aurora Inn to everyone and I could not have imagined a more perfect wedding anywhere else!

    OUTSTANDING place to have your wedding! My new husband and I married at The E.B. Morgan House and had our reception in the Lakeview Room at The Aurora Inn. Everything was top notch! It is a spectacular venue visually, inside and out, and the staff catered to our every need. Food, cake: all EXCELLENT! Kudos especially to Heather, our wedding coordinator, who took care of every last detail for us. Innkeeper Emily also provided us with a beautiful stay. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! Janine and Doug

  • Brindamour Photography Wedding Photographers

    I love shooting weddings at the Aurora Inn. The bridal suite has great light and is perfect for getting ready photos. And the ruins behind the inn are the perfect backdrop for my portrait style.

  • McKay's Photography Wedding Photographers

    As a seasoned wedding photographer, I've worked just about everywhere in NY state. So, I've seen it all. The Inns of Aurora are not only historic, unique, gorgeous and elegant, but most importantly highly professional from top to bottom. The food was amazing, the staff was courteous, the attention to detail perfect and yet, they never rushed the Bride and Groom to stay on a tight schedule. Every moment of the day went smoothly and the location and decor cannot be beat! Check out the love here: http://www.mckaysphotography.com/blog/2012/06/vintage-inspired-wedding-at-inns-of-aurora/

  • Exceptional Receptions Wedding DJs

    As a DJ specializing in weddings I have the opportunity to work at many locations all over Upstate NY and the Fingerlakes region. The Aurora Inn tops my list of favorite venues not because it is beautiful, although it is. And it's not the food, although that is wonderful too. It is the people that make a difference. Heather Davidson and the staff not only provide exquisite service, they do it with pride. You genuinely feel that they are emotionally invested in the success of your event and that they truly enjoy what they do. What they have is a rare find. Come for the beautiful setting and the delicious food. Stay for the personal attention and friendly atmosphere!
