We’re Kim, Bud & Guinness Wagner, originally from the Toledo, Ohio area, and we’ve been the owners of the Fox and Grapes since July, 2014.  The original home was built in 1885 by the Caywood Family and later owned by the Porter Family who sold it in 2004. It became The Fox and The Grapes in 2005.  Although the home has many qualities of an 1885 Victorian farm house, it also provides many of the modern day amenities required by most travelers and offers a warm, friendly, and cozy environment.

We know there are lots of places to stay in our area, but here are the top reasons why The Fox and the Grapes should be your #1 choice:

  1. We are a legitimate bed and breakfast operating under state and county code regulations.  We are inspected and fully insured.
  2. We offer a full breakfast daily and no extra charges apply for special dietary accommodations. Many of our breads, granola and sweets are homemade; fresh herbs (and sometimes vegetables) come from our own gardens and our coffee is made from organic beans specially blended just for us.  We also provide daily housekeeping services with no extra fees.         
  3. Our property offers many places, inside and out, to have an intimate conversation or fun with other guests. Our porches, deck, and grounds are manicured for your enjoyment and offer a beautiful view of Seneca Lake.
  4. We are close to all the best wineries, breweries & distilleries (some within walking distance) such as Wagner, Lamoreaux, Silver Thread, Standing Stone, Lucky Hare, Scale House Brewing, just to name a few. We are also close to some of the best restaurants in the area who serve lunch and/or dinner like the Golden Buck, Dano’s, The Ginney Lee Café and the Stonecat (some serve year around).
  5. Some of the best live music venues are minutes from us including Wagner (Summer Friday Pub Nights), Hazlitt Oasis (Friday music), Rasta Ranch (Monday Night Blues), Two Goats (music every weekend) and Stonecat Café (Wednesday Pub Nights).
  6. For those who love the outdoors, we are close to the most beautiful gorges, waterfalls and hiking paths at nearby state parks and the national forest or play some golf, rent a kayak, or tour a vineyard.  We can help you get started.
  7. And finally, end your busy day with a great night’s sleep in one of our comfortable guest rooms, each with its own private bath and amenities sure to meet your needs.  Other property amenities include a spacious lobby equipped with fridge, wine chiller, microwave, glasses, openers, plastic ware Keurig machine, and tea. Wine by the bottle is sold on site. Other extras are available for purchase with your reservation, just visit our "amenities" page.

We’ve tasted a lot of wonderful wine, beer and spirits, have sampled the local fare and explored many of the state parks and national forests. We’ve established wonderful relationships with many of the area businesses and in doing so, can help fill your days with the most exciting and memorable things to do.

Owning a b & b isn’t a hobby for us, but a full-time, year around job that we take very seriously. Come and give us a try-we look forward to having you as our guest.

Bud, Kim and Guinness
