Destination guide

The lakeside setting of Auburn is ready to explore

Take a vacation to Auburn and enjoy the area's cathedral, theater scene and opera. Renowned for its lake, baseball games and monuments, this city welcomes all visitors. With a vacation rental, you get a home away from home—many rentals offer full kitchens and outdoor grills for some home cooking.

Things to do

Discover iconic American figures

While you can certainly get the adrenaline pumping around these parts, you can also have a far more placid stay in Auburn. You can easily spend days exploring the town and the surrounding area's rich history. Take a look at the lives of Harriet Tubman and William H. Seward at their museum homes or visit the Fort Hill Cemetery which has been used by Native Americans for over a thousand years. If you're going to visit just one place, make it the Willard Memorial Chapel that has exquisite glasswork designed by Louis C. Tiffany, and is the only wholly unaltered Tiffany chapel still in existence.


Cool off in the Finger Lakes

The Finger Lakes and state parks are right on the doorstep of your Auburn vacation rental. Here, you can jump on your mountain bike to ride along the rugged forest trails, or lace up your walking boots to hike by the shores of the lakes. In the summer, you can splash around in Owasco or Cayuga Lakes to cool off, or take to kayaks or paddleboards to glide across the waters in search of birdlife. The region also has a rich history in wine production, and you can savor any number of vintages at one of the local wineries.


Glorious sunny days during spring and summer

Though Auburn vacation rentals are readily available all year round, the spring and summer months are the busiest and best. Be sure to book one up early to avoid disappointment. During the sunny and hot days, you can spend time on and around the nearby lakes, relishing the shimmering landscape. Its elevated location means the nights can be chilly all year round so be sure to bring a sweater. While fall is quieter, hikes along the trails can be wonderfully scenic, thanks to the rich, fiery hues of the forests. And you can soon return to relax in the cozy restaurants and bars in Auburn.

Natural features

Bring the camera to Auburn

While there isn't much in the way of wildlife in Auburn itself, the nearby Finger Lakes supports a diverse list of species. Head out of your Auburn vacation rental to one of these bodies of water to spot falcons and hawks overhead. The heavy croaking of toads fills the night time silence, as does the hooting of owls. Fishing in the lake reveals a ton of marine species, from trout to spawning sturgeon as well as crayfish and Dungeness crabs. The forests are carpeted in wild flowers during the spring and early summer, while colorful butterflies swoop around the lakes.
