Grape Arbor Bed and Breakfast

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


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.

Second Visit to the Grape Arbor B&B

4.2 on October 16, 2015

My husband and I have celebrated our 16th and 27th wedding anniversaries at the Grape Arbor B&B. Both visits were perfect. The area is absolutely wonderful in the fall and the house is decorated beautifully for the holiday. Our favorite part to staying at the B&B is the four course breakfast. The food is wonderful and you definitely do not leave hungry. Our room was on the first floor and the King size bed sits next to the new gas fireplace that kept the room's temperature perfect. We would definitely recommend the Grape Arbor B&B for a romantic getaway!!

Another great stay at Grape Arbor

We had a wonderful stay at this b&b. Once we made the reservations, we received e-mails welcoming us and giving us info on the town and attractions and dining in the area. I have never felt so welcome. Paul and Molly were wonderful and answered all our questions. They are very knowledgeable about the area. Will definitely stay here again when we visit the area.

This is our 5th time staying at the Grape Arbor. After our first visit, we said we would be back each year. We make it our yearly get away for a long weekend, and sometimes visit it more than once a year.The breakfast are outstanding and the jar filled with cookies makes for a refreshing afternoon delight. Highly recommend staying here.

relaxing enjoyable stay with great food

The suite we stayed in was a good value for the money. The breakfasts were out of this world--several courses, and everything was delicious. The rooms as well as the common areas are Victorian-style and beautiful. Decorations are tactful. The rooms were impeccably clean. Overall it's a very relaxing place to stay, and in an excellent location for anything near North East. The only critical thing I have to mention is that I didn't feel really safe and secure. The jamb on the main door had been broken at some point, apparently from someone having to break down the door. It was glued back together instead of being replaced. Not secure. Moreover there was a creepy door at the end of the hall in our suite that led to some area that was not part of our suite. In fact, we heard voices that seemed to be right on the other side of the door, from what we assumed were other guests. If that door were replaced with a wall, and the door jamb were fixed, I would have felt better and not at all creeped out, and the stay would have been perfect.

Innkeeper Response
We are glad that you enjoyed your breakfast and your suite. There is one suite that has a door that adjoins another suite that is securely locked unless guests rent the entire upstairs of that building. Obviously your comments regarding a door were concerning, and I immediately went and inspected all of the doors in the suites, but could not find what was described. All of our rooms have deadbolt locks, no room has ever been entered in the manner that you describe.
