A big thanks to our friend Carol Martino for her recent write up on the E.B. Morgan House, Inns of Aurora, MacKenzie Childs, and Cayuga County's own Wells College. Teaser... there's some big names with a local Finger Lakes tie. Exciting stuff. Read on below.
The E. B. Morgan House, a luxurious lakeside retreat
“The years teach much which the days never know.” We found this bit of inspiration, penned by Ralph Waldo Emerson, on our pillows along with chocolate truffles the first night of our stay at the historic E.B Morgan House in Aurora, New York. At the time, we didn’t realize how prophetic those words had become in this little village. . . . Dan and I had spent most of the day driving through the gently rolling hills of New York’s Finger Lake region which is dotted with vineyards. Our destination was Aurora which sits on the eastern shore of Cayuga Lake. Here, we found historic mansions stretched along tree-lined Main Street where hydrangeas border manicured lawns. We feasted on exquisite cuisine, bought fresh bread and artisan cheese at the village market, and captured the scent of childhood memories as the boards creaked in an old-time hardware store. We strolled through the campus of Wells College where ivy grips red brick like fond memories cling to the hearts of its former students.
