Grape Arbor Bed and Breakfast

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.

Quick and enjoyable!

4.0 on August 08, 2017

We enjoyed our night and would have enjoyed more time spent there as well. We were accommodated with our dietary needs and enjoyed the food and atmosphere.

Great Breakfast.

4.8 on August 03, 2017

Great food and service. The courtyard could have been a little better maintained. But other than that everything was great. Peggy was a wonderful host.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for your comments! I am sorry that you found the courtyard not quite up to par. The rainy weather put me behind on some of my yardwork!

Lovely, but Noisy

4.2 on August 02, 2017

Lovely place but it is located very near the train tracks. The train passed by 4 times each night between 11pm and 5 am. It blew it's whistle 4 times on each pass. Did not get much sleep. The Inn provides ear plugs in each room, but even with ear plugs we were awakened by the whistle.

Innkeeper Response
Sorry the trains bothered you! The tracks are more than 1/2 mile away, and the noise bothers some folks more than others.

Could use some updates

2.8 on August 02, 2017

The breakfasts were good (if carb-heavy). The bed was firm, but very comfortable. The rooms themselves, though, are in need of some updating. Simply removing the outdated and peeling wallpaper and adding a clean coat of light colored paint would transform things immeasurably. Overall, there wasn't anything "bad" about the experience, but we probably won't be returning.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your comments! You don't mention the room that you were in. There are only several that have wallpaper. We do work on updating one or two rooms per year, and will be sure to look carefully at the wallpaper. Check out the pictures we have been posting on Facebook and in our newsletter for updates to Isabella.

Comfortable night in North East

4.6 on July 29, 2017

We enjoyed a very nice overnight at the Grape Arbor Bed and Breakfast. We found the staff professional and ready to make our stay comfortable. Our breakfast was delicious. The small town is lovely, Lake Erie just a few blocks away, was nice to see. We walked to dinner at "Cork," it was very good and we enjoyed a local Merlot from Mazza Vineyards that was also very good. Overall we had a great stay.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for your kind words! It was great to get a chance to meet and talk to you! Hope to see you again!

This was our 2nd stay at Grape Arbor Inn. It's in the middle of wine country in NY and PA. Rooms are comfortable and clean and the breakfasts are superb.

Innkeeper Response
I am so glad you enjoyed yourself. Hope to see you again!

Birthday Getaway

5 on May 12, 2017

We recently visited for a two night stay and had the place to ourselves as there were no other guests at the time. The room was on the small side but more than adequate for our needs although the shower was a bit tight. Everything was very clean and the innkeepers were very courteous and welcoming. Breakfast was also very good and we were given two different options on each day. The B&B is only a few blocks from town and traffic was minimal. Very relaxing and quiet atmosphere. This was our third visit and we will be back again next year.
