Beautiful place , gorgeous view

Wonderful Location!

If you enjoy staying at a B&B with a great view and Inn keepers who make you feel like one of the family, then make sure you visit here.

Innkeeper Response
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. It is our never ending goal to make everyone feel like this is their "home away from home".

What an amazing find!

The Fox and the Grapes - we spent a two night get away and had a wonderful time. The B&B was lovely, clean and comfortable and our hosts, Kim and Bud were outstanding. Breakfasts were amazing, views from the balcony, spectacular and we loved every minute. So many things in the area to see and do and what a great place to come "home" to each evening. We even saw the resident heron/crane in the pond. Thanks again Kim and Bud for making our time there so great.

Innkeeper Response

We spent 5 nights at B and B in August. Don't have words to discribe how beautiful it is. Couple who owns this B and B are amazing people. I would recommend this B and B to anyone.

“Perfect location, beautiful view, excellent accomodations....”

We had a fantastic weekend at the Fox and the Grapes Bed and Breakfast. The location was perfect for access to Watkins Glen, Geneva and the Seneca Wine Trail. Kim and Bud were awesome hosts making sure our weekend was perfect. The room was very nice, the facility quaint and cozy. The view of the lake from the deck was outstanding. Twenty minutes to the Watkins Glen state park (Do not miss this and take your camera!) Minutes to excellent wineries and great restaurants. When we return to the Seneca Lake, we will stay here!

Innkeeper Response
My response to this review can be summed up in one word, "YAY!" I never stop with just one word though, thank you so much for this amazing review and please return soon as we've found even more places to hike around our property that you won't want to miss.

Wonderful B&B with Seneca Lake View

4.6 on July 26, 2014

My husband and I stayed at the Fox and the Grapes B&B on Thursday, July 10th. The B&B is just beautiful, and the outdoor deck is lovely to sit outside, have a glass of wine and enjoy the view of Seneca Lake. We met the new owners Bud and Kim Wagner - who had just taken over the B&B July 1st! - and they were very friendly and welcoming. We had great weather during our stay, so we were able to enjoy a fabulous breakfast out on the deck and again enjoy the view of Seneca Lake! We definitely recommend this B&B, and we will be staying here again ourselves!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much, we are very happy your stay was pleasant and we look forward to your return.

Overall very nice. You did just take over but a little appointed in breakfast. Thought there would be more options. But beautiful set up overall!

Innkeeper Response
I am glad you enjoyed your stay and am sorry we cannot offer multiple options for breakfast. We're such a small inn and making multiple dishes or cooking to order would be really hard to do. We will consider your suggestion, maybe offering cold cereals, yogurt or instant oatmeal for those who may not like what's on the menu for that day. Thanks for the review.

Great place to stay!

Innkeeper Response

We love wine, the outdoors and meeting new people. Our house dogs, Guinness and Bailey can provide warm nuzzles or an energetic game of fetch, but only if you want.
