Amazing Outdoor Spaces

The Fox and Grapes is situated on 2.7 acres surrounded by area vineyards. Relax on our deck with a beautiful view of Seneca Lake. It is the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee or watch the sun set with your favorite beverage. Enjoy the view from our log swing in the yard, or watch the frogs play in our tranquility pond. If you feel like taking a stroll, you're invited to walk below our property along Caywood Road where vineyards meet farm fields and forests and offer breathtaking views with the most amazing photographic opportunities.
