Tucked along Aurora’s quiet back lane, Orchard Cottage retains the charm of its 1850s character while thoroughly modernized as a restorative, private retreat. The 2,200-square foot cottage features a comfortable living room, two full bathrooms stocked with spa-quality amenities, and a full kitchen with all the essentials.
The cottage accommodates a maximum of five guests between two bedrooms with king-size beds and a twin-size daybed in the living room. In the warmer months, guests can enjoy a screened-in porch with village views, a bluestone patio with a gas-powered grill,
and a firepit with Adirondack chairs in the private yard. Housekeeping is available upon request with advance notice, and our guest services team is available 24 hours a day at the Aurora Inn.

Can we host events at Orchard Cottage?
Out of respect for our neighbors and the quiet atmosphere of village life, we do not permit gatherings at Orchard Cottage and ask that guests observe quiet hours from 9:00 p.m. to 9:00 a.m.
What time is check-in and check-out?
Check-in time is 3:00 p.m. Check-out time is 11:00 a.m. Due to the intimate nature of the Inns of Aurora, early check-ins and late check-outs cannot be accommodated and will not be permitted. We are pleased to offer luggage storage for guests enjoying the area outside of designated check-in and check-out times. Please check-in at the Aurora Inn (located at 391 Main Street, Aurora, NY 13026), where our front desk team will provide an introduction to the resort and the access information to the cottage.
Do you allow dogs at Orchard Cottage?
Orchard Cottage is dog-friendly! Excluding service dogs, pets are limited to 35 pounds. Please inform us at the time of booking if you plan to bring a dog. Our pet fee is $100 per stay; we are delighted to provide a crate and bowls for food and water.
Dogs are not allowed at other Inns of Aurora properties—including dining establishments and the Spa—with the exception of the patio at the Fargo Bar & Grill during the warmer months and the Nature Trail. At these locations, dogs must remain leashed. If left alone at Orchard Cottage, dogs must be secured in a crate. Pet owners are responsible for waste pickup.
Additional fees may be added for any noise complaints associated with excessive barking or for the repair of any damaged or excessively worn or soiled interiors.
