Property description

This vacation rental is part of a warm and inviting winery (fun too!), located on Lake Erie. We are part of the Lake Erie Wine Country which is made up of 24 wineries! This is a great place for a romantic stay for two, girls get-away, bachelorette parties, men's poker night destination, book club/scrapbooking sleep over or to just escape with friends for a few days!

Our Villa is not suitable for children. The Villa is more suited for an adult environment and not really meant for children. (The Villa is located above our Winery.)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Ripley, NY is located right outside of North East, Pennsylvania. This has always been a destination place for our family. While growing up in Erie, Pa. we attended many wonderful events that are held yearly in the small and quaint town of North East. The simple car rides that we enjoyed while being able to see the hundreds of acres of delicious grapes are such a fond memory for us.

Why the Owner Chose North East:
This property was purchased because of the already existing winery that was on it in an area we already loved. After looking at the beautiful house up above the winery for three years and having people inquiring about a close place to stay, we decided to give them what they want by furnishing it and renting it out. It has been a joy hearing all of the positive comments about the winery and now about the vacation property.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
A vacation in wine country? Why not end your day of winery hopping, visiting the casino or even shopping at Millcreek Mall in Erie by staying at our fully furnished Villa at Sparkling Ponds Winery. We think you will be delighted to relax in our cozy and comfortable villa. You are welcome to light a fire in the living room fireplace (one fire log provided), or build a fire in the pit outside next to the pond while sipping a bottle of local wine that you purchased from one of the wineries. Now that is 'getting away from it all!'
