Want to skip the shopping? Contact us prior to your arrival and we’ll be happy to stock the kitchen with your favorite groceries for an additional fee.
Spend time relaxing while our talented culinary team prepares a private feast for the senses right in your residence. From a sparkling four-course dinner to a casual brunch buffet, a festive cocktail hour to our guest-favorite fireside gourmet s’mores bar, our expansive and customizable offerings add a celebratory flair to any private residence rental.
Despite its rural location and intimate size, the Village of Aurora is home to two exceptional restaurants and a general store, all within 300 steps of our private residences.
Along with an extensive craft beer list, the Fargo Bar & Grill serves upscale tavern fare and creative daily features. Located inside the Aurora Inn, 1833 Kitchen & Bar offers fresh farm-to-table cuisine and an award-winning wine program. Both offer take-out to enjoy in your residence. The Village Market is open daily and stocked with local gifts, pantry staples, delectable desserts, and ready-to-heat take-home meals.
Private Add-on Experiences
From yoga classes to Tarot card readings, archery lessons to fishing excursions, our extensive library of private experiences will transform your stay into a memorable retreat.
