Grape Arbor Bed and Breakfast

51 East Main Street , North East, PA 16428 USA (Show map)

About

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.

What a Wonderful Weekend!

4.2 on January 28, 2016

Grape Arbor Bed and Breakfast is a wonderful place! We went for a two night stay and could not have asked for a cozier, more welcoming room, friendly greeters (two cats!) and amazing breakfast options!


It's the little things, and one big thing :)

Small comforts and considerations make this B&B a winner. Two varieties of cookies in the jar and cool soft drinks in the fridge are both offered freely to all guests, as well as pre-notified options for providing things like cookies and strawberries up to massages. The library has a nice selection of books, VHS, and DVD (not a massive collection but great selections). Finally this is a stay right downtown in North East so accessing local options on foot for shopping and dining is a piece of cake. The big thing - breakfast! Terrific breakfast here. Apple crumb cake, freshly diced fruit, harvest grain buns, french toast, and farmer's casserole when my wife and I stayed.


A quick, one night stay

We needed a winter retreat for a night, and even though Grape Arbor is only 45 minutes from home, we have always had top results in every area. This time was no exception. We had the downstairs Isabella room which is private, comfortable and has it's own gas fireplace for a cozy winter atmosphere. The breakfasts are indulgent, interesting and delicious...every time. Peggy is invariably prepared, helpful and cheerful. We came away feeling that we had double the rejuvenation than the time we actually spent there. I cannot recommend it enough!


Good Time

It was a great weekend. Everything exceeded my expectations. They also had great little extras like a bottomless cookie jar and the people were great.


A very pleasant Inn.

My wife and I love this place. The rooms are fantastic and the service is wonderful. We stayed in the Cabernet suite this time and it was beautiful. Breakfast was delicious as well. All in all, it is a great getaway to relax, recharge and spend quality time together.


The perfect getaway

Stayed overnight for a girls getaway. Perfect location for access to the loads of wineries in the area, also close to Bella spa. Great option for a relaxing getaway at any time of the year.


Fishing Trip

4.4 on November 20, 2015

I go up to Erie once every year for Steelhead fishing. I usually only stay a day, but this time decided to head up and stay an extra day. This place was perfect. Great room close to my favorite spots on 4 Mile, 7 mile, 12 mile, etc. The breakfast was GREAT! Really set the tone for the day as I went fishing. I will stay here again for sure. Ohh - the cookies were awesome too. I took a bunch before I left.


Perfect B&B for the Erie wine trail

My husband and I stayed at the Grape Arbor B&B for our 19th anniversary and really enjoyed it. We reserved the Riesling room and it was very clean, well-maintained and charming. The breakfast was delicious and they also accommodated our request for gluten free options which I really appreciated. The GF blueberry muffins and banana bread were yummy! We would definitely stay here again and have heard good reviews from friends/family who have stayed here in the past.


Romantic Getaway
