Our side-by-side mansions, built in the early Victorian Age, have withstood the test of time. First designed as private homes, these historical properties have since served as a stagecoach tavern, professional offices, a primary school and now a distinctive bed & breakfast. Our beautifully decorated rooms and suites, named after different varieties of grapes, are yours to enjoy as you would you own home. You may spend evenings in the quiet of your room, or visit with other guests in the parlor and sitting rooms. On wintry days, our acclaimed gourmet breakfasts are served in the dining room with its warm and cheering hearth. In summery weather, our patio and airy sun porch are delightful spots to start and end each day.

I was traveling solo on business and found this to be the perfect place to stay in the Erie area. The accomodations and breakfast were superb. It was truly brunch! The best bed and brunch I have been to in a long time! The jacuzzi tub eased my tensions away. The suggestions re local sightseeing and dinner out were perfect. In the heart of wine country this is the perfect place to stay - hosts so friendly and helpful. Christmas decorations amazing!

Stayed in the Riesling Suite. I was glad that we took a portable fan along for white noise. The train noise I had read about wasn't an issue. We slept very well. Only comment I have to make was about breakfast---even though it was delicious there were too many bread-type items. Typical meal: cake, bread, fruit and if you didn't like the egg casserole of the day---followed by waffles or pancakes. It would have been better to make this a 3-course meal, and eliminate the second item. Serving staff was friendly and outgoing. I would have preferred that server did not pet the cat and then go to the kitchen for our next course. Was hand washing involved behind closed doors? I don't know. And we never met the host. Unusual in a B&B.......

We'd gotten an email for a midweek special if we stayed at the in in November from Sunday thru Thursday,excepting Thanksgiving. We decided to book a stay and we picked the Cabernet Suite. The bed was very comfortable and the room very relaxing. The breakfasts the next morning were amazing as well. We will definitely be going back in the spring.

We loved visiting North East, the wineries, the lakes and the scenery. The Inn was excellent, and the breakfasts were absolutely fabulous. We're hoping to see Peggy Hauser's cookbook out in the near future. She and her staff were so friendly, informative and very efficient. It was so nice to come home at night and enjoy the warm sitting rooms and fireplace and truly relax. The bed was very comfortable and we loved that the fireplace automatically came on when it got under 70 to take the chill out. We loved the vintage halloween decorations, very stylish and tasteful. We will definitely make another trip. Thanks so much, Art & Eileen

We stayed at the beginning of October, when weather in the Erie area can be anything. This time it was just chilly enough that we needed the heat to be on, but they had not gotten a chance to get the heating system up and running yet. The space heater they gave us was not working correctly, but when I alerted the staff (the cook, actually, as he was the only one around) he immediately brought a new one to our room and made sure that it worked correctly. The breakfasts were absolutely lovely and plentiful -- if you leave breakfast hungry, it is your own fault! The location is perfect for a tour of the area wineries, being just about halfway between the Erie and SW NY ends of the wine trail. Would definitely stay there again!

Me And My wife stayed at the Grape Arbor as part of our elopement to the Erie area. We found the Grape arbor online and booked it. The Staff were all wonderful. Breakfast was EXCELLENT!!! The room we had was alot more room than we expected. We had our our entrance into the house and it included a decent sized bedroom, a small living area and a bathroom. All the furnishings were period style and in very good condition. The bed and bedding were very plush and comfortable. The only draw back to this place was the Train noise. Lots of Trains. We will be back to visit....
