E.B. Morgan House
Ranked #2 of 5 Aurora B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 April 2012

I first heard about the E.B. Morgan House on "the Today Show" last year and just after in Travel and Leisure magazine. My family and I just returned from a weekend stay in this fabulous B & B on Lake Cayuga in the Finger Lakes. From the moment we pulled into this
mansion, we knew that we were going to have a relaxing stay to remember.

Our InnKeeper Dale greeted us with a well-informed tour of the property. He was always there to make sure we had what we needed and were well taken care of. He was spectacular.

I have always been hesitant of Bed and breakfasts, as I like to stay in up to date rooms with all of the emmenities. This property has it! The rooms have all been uniquely refurbished and decorated individually. The bathrooms are fabulous with all of the modern conveniences. The beds are great too.

Every morning, the innkeeper has fresh coffee and muffins in the common area just off the kitchen. It's a nice treat before the delicious breakfast that is included, just down the street at it's sister property the Aurora Inn. Both places have a rich history that is fun to discover. The history is detailed in your room's information.

It is a small town, but with the Inn and another more casual restaurant across the street - it was enough for a weekend stay. There are lots of places to explore nearby, but we opted to take it easy....enjoy the porch overlooking the lake and just relax.

We will certainly be back!

Room Tip: Book as early as you can. We did not have a lake view, because we booked three weeks out. I would...

We just got back from a perfect weekend (aside from the weather!) at the E.B. Morgan House. The rooms are beautiful and clean. The atmosphere was quiet, cozy, friendly and relaxing. The food at the nearby Aurora Inn was delicious. This would be a wonderful place to visit in the summer, but even in cold rain, we had fun. Dale went above and beyond as the inn keeper. He was extremely knowledgeable about the house and its history, extremely thoughtful and accomodating. He gave us a free local tour that was entertaining and informative. Thanks to the E.B. Morgan House and to Dale for a great stay!

This lovely B&B is on Cayuga Lake in NY and the sunsets alone are worth the stay! The room was lovely and modern. The innkeeper was helpful and friendly. It's a quaint little town to walk around! Close to wineries, Ithaca, state parks and many other attractions. My husband and I loved it and are looking forward to our next getaway at the E.B. Morgan House!

My hubby and I just got back from a night here (1/7/12). It was the best experience. House was beautiful, right on the lake. We had a lake view and saw the most beautiful sunset from our window. The service was excellent. We could not even open the door for ourselves - the inn keeper was always there making sure everything was just the way we wanted. Everything was either porcelin or glass. No cheap plastic. Muffins and fresh coffee in the morning and wine and cheese at 5:00. Big fireplaces and beautiful decor. We went to the Aurora Inn for dinner (walked) which far exceeded our expectations even though the reviews were great. The food was elegant and delicious. We topped off our night by walking over to the Fargo Inn for a night cap, and even that was warm and inviting. Right across the street from the Aurora Inn. We walked back to the EB Morgan house and had the best sleep. I would highly recommend and definitely return. It felt like you were sleeping over at a friend's house.

Room Tip: We stayed in EB Morgan number 3 and loved it. Nice fireplace and windows on both sides of room. Yo...

My husband and I, along with two other couples, spent an evening at the E.B. Morgan House and we were absolutely amazed at this charming, beautifully decorated, incredibly clean bed and breakfast. Our 'host', Dale, made us feel like a guest in his own home. We started with a meeting in the library, followed by a tour of the home and grounds, along with recommendations as to where to park, walk, eat, etc. We were provided with complimentary wine and snacks and both dinner and breakfast at the neighboring Aurora Inn (located about 8 doors down) were to die for! Thank you to Dale for making our stay so memorable and enjoyable!!! I am a fairly active traveler... and this place truly ranks among my favorite in the world! Who knew it was almost in my own backyard? A definite must-stay for anyone traveling in the Finger Lakes!

I can't say enough about the wonderful experience my wife and I had 2 weeks ago when we spent a weekend at the E.B. Morgan House in Aurora, NY. Upon our arrival on Friday evening we were greeted by Dale, the innkeeper for the weekend. He showed us around the house and the property and then took us to our room. Room 2 has a view of Cayuga Lake and a fireplace. What more could you ask for! The room was large, comfortable and finely appointed. The house, itself, is beautiful both inside and out. Dale was the consummate host. He was courteous, professional and engaging. We have stayed at several B&B's, but this was by far our best experience. We look forward to returning for another stay in the near future.
