Book now or get help at


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.

My husband & I stayed at the Grape Arbor B&B this past week. We had an absolutely wonderful experience. The Inn is beautiful. The staff is above hospitable. The room was clean, comfortable & had everything we could need. The breakfasts were delicious! We highly recommend this B&B and we will be back. Thank you Peggy, Leanne & April.

We had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay at the Grape Harbor Inn on December 23rd. The Inn was so beautifully decorated and warm and cozy it was a pleasure. Snacks and beverages were available anytime, very wlecome for weary travelers.Breakfast was delicious and oh so filling. We departed on Christmas Eve morning fully in the Christmas spirit. And we escaped the snow deluge that followed. us!

We stayed three nights at Grape Arbor B&B and were very happy with every aspect of our stay! The room and breakfasts were great and the people were very friendly and helpful.

This was our first time to stay in this area and we were pleasantly surprised. This bed and breakfast was top notch. The service and food was great. The room was very comfortable. We will definitely plan to stay here again in the future.

Great B and B

The B and B made a great central place for our girl trip. Our 2 rooms(Concord and Steuben) were great with good bathrooms. Those who drank coffee were thrilled with the Keurig outside our rooms. Breakfast was good and generous as promised.

Grape Arbor B&B

We stayed at Grape Arbor over the November 3rd weekend. This is the second year we stayed at Grape Arbor and love it. The location is perfect and the breakfast and cookies are excellent! The only complaint we had this year was the lack of heat in the 2nd building where we stayed.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for staying with us again! I am so sorry that you weren't satisfied with the heat; I wish that you had said something...the steam heat was on in the building, and we could have either adjusted the individual radiators or given you some additional heat! Don't ever hesitate to ask! Hope to see you again.

A Treasure Near the Lake

This B&B has it all--comfort, excellent breakfast, and friendly service. We walked to a nearby restaurant for dinner and to the historical society museum; the two lounging rooms are comfortable; and we were encouraged from the moment we walked in to make ourselves at home.

Top notch and great location

Great stay, beautiful house. Would be 5 in food except egg casserole 2 days in a row, would like a change in options for egg selection. Very delicious food otherwise, loved the cookies anytime we wanted! Your staff is very friendly Location is terrific, walkable to everything downtown Nortj East! The only downside to location is TRAINS!!! Obviously you cannot avoid that we heard them at every winery we were at too. Nice touch on earplugs Would love to see your beautiful property with some TLC on the landscaping. Will just take it to the same caliber you work to keep the inside of the houses, which was exceptionally clean! I would return and recommend The Grape Arbor to anyone!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much for staying with us and taking the time to comment! I will take to heart your comment about the egg casserole (they were different casseroles), but when we are full, it is almost impossible to do 'to order" eggs on my four burner stove. We are making some changes with the landscaping, as you may have noticed in the back--putting in some new trees. We try very hard to keep everything pristine, but sometimes the weather doesn't let us get our and get some things done! We will try harder! Hope to see you again.

Nice getaway

3.8 on October 10, 2017

Overall our stay was great! The food was amazing and the room was beautiful. The only issue we ran into was we were notified that we did not have tv in our room due to recent changes with their provider. We were totally fine with this as we could survive without tv. The only issue we had was how we were notified about it seemed deceptive. They made sure to take our credit card and charge us for the night only to “just remember” this was an issue as we were being walked into our room. Again, we probably would have felt less of an issue wth this if were were notified up front about this and would not have expected anything in return but feeling as if it was kept until we payed made us feel turned off by it. Overall though we were glad we stayed and would recommend to others.

Innkeeper Response
I am so glad you had a good stay. However, I am so sorry about how the TV issue was handled. You are right, we should have discussed it upfront before going to your room! Please watch your mail, for something that reflects my apologies!

Idyllic Experience

5 on October 04, 2017

The house was beautifully decorated for Fall. Our bedroom suite was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was scrumptious and exceeded all expectations, and the service was lovely. Peggy gave us great recommendations for a truly local experience. Highly recommend and hope to be back again someday.
