“Perfect getaway”
Reviewed 3 May 2011

We loved the E.B. Morgan house. The inn is absolutely beautiful right on Cayuga lake. We've stayed at many bed and breakfasts and this one was top notch. They truly pay attention to every detail here including complimentary wine and cheese at night and chocolates each night on your bed for turn-down service. The town of Aurora is extremely quaint and peaceful. We loved eating breakfast and dinner at the Aurora Inn that was within short walking distance form the E.B. Morgan house. The lemon ricotta pancakes were amazing! I only wish we had a few more nights to continue to enjoy this slice of heaven.

My husband and I stayed the weekend at the E.B. Morgan house and completely fell in love. Before we even entered the house we knew it was going to be amazing - and it really didn't disappoint. Every detail is looked after and you get the real sense that this is a space that is lovingly looked after. The outside is a beautifully kept up stone mansion with an inviting porch set up with several comfy chairs and a massive green lawn in the front. From the back, views of stunning Cayuga Lake and a rolling lawn dotted with pairs of Adirondac chairs in the back. We were greeted by Dale, the weekend innkeeper, who was all smiles as he opened the door for us as we walked up the front stairs. It very much felt like you were arriving at a friend's home and they were looking forward to seeing you. Although we'd missed the nightly wine and cheese by about a 1/2 hour, Dale still offered us delicious local wine that we enjoyed as he toured us around the house. There are sitting rooms on the first floor with overstuffed couches, lots of books and games that you can hang out in if you want the company of other couples staying at the house or if you're there with a group. We were looking to have some alone time and never felt like we needed to socialize if we didn't want to. The back porch also has amazing seating space and looks out onto the lake. Dale took us up to our room (204) which is a corner room a couple flights up. Waiting for us there were chocolate covered strawberries and bottle of wine. And while there was not a direct view of the lake, we still could catch a glimpse through one of the windows. One night we kept the shutters open and were waken up by gorgeous morning sunshine. The second night we forgot to open them up and the room stayed nice and dark (in case you don't like waking to the sun!) The room is well appointed and the perfect size, bathroom is good sized with an excellent shower. They provide Aveda toiletries and cozy robes. The bed has the softest linens ever! Dale was the perfect combination of being available when you needed for whatever you needed and then inobtrusive when we just wanted to get on our way. We had lovely conversations with him, he provided good recommendations based on what we were interested in. He really made our stay even more wonderful. On our second night we were there for the wine and cheese, which we enjoyed from a pair of Adirondac chairs in the back. It was the quintessential relaxing experience. A light breeze coming off the lake, the sun setting in front of us, delicious wine and cheese. I can't say enough how lovely it was.

Room Tip: non-direct lake view room is great, too!

The facilities were spectacular, impeccably decorated both inside and out. Comfort at every turn with spectacular views of sunrise and sunsets. Attention to every detail in design and execution. Our Host was truly one step ahead of us at every turn, making the stay truly unique and superior to any other trip we have taken.
This was a special trip for me and my partner, a time to reacquaint ourselves with each other after having been separated for some time. This trip helped us to find and solidify our relationship again. ..Memories made extra special because of all that the E.B Morgan House offers.

The EB Morgan House is like a dream come true. Lovely furnishings, art work and fanciful MacKenzie Childs pieces. A smart, diligent caring staff that knows how to cosset people. From start to finish,, a total delight. Afternoon wine on the back porch overlooking Cayuga Lake is not to be missed. Make sure to have dinner on the patio at Aurora Inn and to take the farmhouse tour of MacKenzie Childs. Kudos to all!

We loved everything about the E.B. Morgan House. The location, the room, morning coffee, breakfast at the Aurora Inn, the wine & cheese in the afternoon. The Inn is beautiful & has a lovely porch, lake front chairs, clean & beautiful furnishings inside. Lots of little extra touches that made it a delightful stay. The Inn Keepers were friendly & helpful. We used the bikes & kayaks that are available for the guests at the Aurora Inn.
