We have been staying at the Fox and Grapes for the past few years and it has become our second home. Jim is always there to welcome us and make us feel right at home. Our rooms are always immaculate and the delicious breakfasts prepared by Jim are something to look forward to each day. The view of Lake Seneca from the porch is nothing short of breathtaking. The Victorian Inn is decorated tastefully and the surrounding grounds are beautiful. My husband and I like to visit the wineries, hike, shop at the market and dine at some of the local restaurants. We have recommended this Inn to many of our friends and relatives and have gotten nothing but rave reviews.
If you are looking for the perfect getaway for a few days, the Fox and Grapes will not disappoint you!

My husband and I spent our 1st anniversary weekend at this B&B and the experience was absolutely incredible. I can not put into words how much we enjoyed our stay. The house is beautiful inside and out and everything was perfectly clean. Our room was so cute and cozy and the bed was more comfortable than my own at home! We enjoyed the fabulous breakfast each morning on the deck overlooking Seneca lake...couldn't be more relaxing. The staff was also very helpful in suggesting restaurants and other places to visit in the area. I highly recommend staying here! Best B&B experience we have had.

We were recommended the Fox and Grapes B&B by relations and it did not disappoint! The house is beautifully decorated with Victorian furniture and has a grand open aspect over looking Seneca Lake and has extensive grounds. There is plenty of space for parking well away from the road.

The bedroom was a good size with a pleasing en-suite and a very comfortable soft bed. Although reasonably close to the road our sleep was not disturbed by passing traffic. The rooms do not have TV, but we did not miss it at all and could have used the large TV in the large lounge/dining room. Indeed, it is good to get away from TV and enjoy the company of like minded travellers, whose company we really enjoyed! Thank you Julie and Fergus, Betsy and Walter!

The free wifi worked well in all areas of the house which made communication with home easy.

Jim made us very welcome with a tour of the house and a detailed explanation of all there was to see and visit durning our stay. The guest fridge was very useful as was the facility to make your own drinks, packed lunches and an evening meal, eaten on the decking as the sun went down over the lake.

Breakfasts were a delight and set us up well for the day ahead! There is plenty to do in the area, whether sampling local wine or exploring wonderful waterfalls and there are plenty of local restaurants to cater for all tastes!

Looking at other reviews we would agree that security could be an issue for some people. It did not concern us at all and we felt very safe, but the house is left open during the night.

All in all we would recommend the Fox and Grapes and its splendid, helpful and welcoming owner Jim.

We had a wonderful stay at The Fox & the Grapes. The lake view was wonderful. Our room had a lovely view as advertise of the Lake Seneca. We enjoyed delicious breakfasts each day and got lots of tips for the days adventures. We would definitely stay here again or our return trip to the Finger Lake area.

Room Tip: Watson room has a lovely view of the lake.

Our recent stay at The Fox and Grapes B & B sets a new standard for our B & B experiences. My husband and I stay in B & B's almost exclusively when we travel and The Fox and The Grapes ranks at the very top of the very best. The house is beautiful, yet very comfortable and welcoming and spotless as well. It has all the charm of an old Victorian home with all the new amenities and creature comforts that you could want. The peaceful setting is gorgeous with lake and vineyard views from the house and grounds. Jim, our host, did a wonderful job making everyone feel at home and sharing his wealth of information about the area. His gourmet breakfast is a culinary delight not to be missed! Jim is very accommodating with dietary restrictions as well as personal food likes and dislikes when creating his delicious meals. We enjoyed our stay immensely. Can't wait to plan a return trip!
