Get to know us



We're Wendy and Russ (and Schnitzel), owners of the Fox and The Grapes Bed and Breakfast. The original home was built in 1885 by the Caywood Family and later owned by the Porter Family, who added the rear great room in 1962.  The house was restored in 2004, and became The Fox and The Grapes in 2005.  Although the home has many qualities of an 1885 Victorian farmhouse, it also provides many modern-day amenities and offers a friendly and cozy environment.

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

We are a legitimate tax paying bed and breakfast business, regularly inspected and fully insured.

Breakfast is provided daily, with as many locally sourced ingredients as possible.  We try to cater to those with special dietary needs.

Our property offers many locations, inside and out, to have an intimate conversation or fun with other guests- interior common spaces, outdoor porches, deck, and grounds, and a beautiful view of Seneca Lake.

We are close to many of 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 (some are seasonal) in the area who serve lunch and/or dinner like the Dano's Heuriger on Seneca, The Elf in the Oak, Ginny Lee Cafe and the Stonecat Cafe. 

Some of the best live music venues are minutes from us including Wagner (Summer Friday Pub Nights), Hazlitt Oasis (summer Friday music), Rasta Ranch (Monday Night Blues), Two Goats (music on weekends), etc.
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.

And finally, end your busy day with a great night's sleep in one of our 5 comfortable guest rooms, each with its own private bath and amenities sure to meet your needs.

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.

Come and give us a try-we look forward to having you as our guests!
