Amazing Outdoor Spaces

The Fox and Grapes is situated on 2.7 acres surrounded by area vineyards. Relax on our deck while you enjoy your morning coffee or watch the sun set with your favorite beverage. Watch the frogs play in our tranquility pond or take a stroll along Caywood Road where vineyards meet farm fields and forests and offer breathtaking views with the most amazing photographic opportunities.

Our indoor spaces will make you feel right at home

At The Fox and The Grapes, we offer more than just a guest room.  Whether you feel like being social, having a snack, or warming up by a fireplace in the winter, our rear guest lounge is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the view.
Enjoy a glass of wine or cup of tea and a movie or read a book in our parlor.  The possibilities for relaxing and reconnecting with your special someone and disconnecting from the outside world are endless.
