The Aurora Inn is a family owned and operated property that has been welcoming guests to the beautiful Annapolis Valley since 1981. We are located in the Village of Kingston, immediately adjacent to the Village of Greenwood, which is home to 14 Wing Greenwood (CFB Greenwood), the largest military air base in Atlantic Canada.
We are a pet friendly, smoke-free environment. Our rooms offer pillow top comfort with either one king or two queen beds, all the modern amenities including free high speed wireless internet access, an iron and ironing board, hair dryer, flat screen television with digital cable, Keurig coffee maker and top of the line soaps, lotions and shampoos.
All of our guests are welcome to take advantage of our daily breakfast bar from 6:30 until 10:00 am daily. Try the waffles, hot/cold cereals, fresh fruits, yogurts, breads, bagels and pastries and juices. We also offer a non-dairy milk alternative and several gluten free options.
Our business centre is available twenty-four hours a day in the event you require computer and/or printer access at any time during your stay.
It seems that there is a festival or event somewhere in Nova Scotia every weekend of the year. Here in Kingston, we host the annual Steer Bar-B-Q the second weekend each July. You may also wish to take in a wine tasting tour while you’re here, visiting the multitude of vineyards that produce some of the best wine Canada has to offer. Or you may want to go whale watching on the Bay of Fundy, world famous for its unbelievably high tides.
If you prefer to stay closer to home, the 14 Wing Military Aviation Museum is well worth visiting, showcasing all of the aircraft flown from Greenwood since World War II. Some of the actual aircraft are on display just outside of the museum. You may also like to visit Nova Scotia’s only zoo, the Oaklawn Farm Zoo, found just a short drive away. Be sure to visit at sundown, when the owner goes into the large cat cage to feed the lions.
If golf is your game, we can direct you to one of the three CPGA courses in our area, as close as a five minute drive from your door.
Whatever the reason for visiting our beautiful Valley, please allow us the opportunity to be your hosts. You will not be disappointed.
Pets allowed based on the availability of pet friendly rooms. Up to 2 dogs per room with a 80 pound weight limit. Additional pet types (cats, birds, etc) may be accepted at the hotel's discretion. Pet rate is $15.00 per stay.
