About Brendan Grillo

Newly married couple from just down the road in Auburn, New York. We are so excited to offer a spectacular getaway sitting among the vines at our favorite winery, in an area near and dear to us, the Finger Lakes region.

We look so forward to meeting you, and can't wait for you to fall in love with the Finger Lakes too.

Why Brendan Grillo chose Romulus

There is nothing I can think of more perfect than waking up to the gorgeous, panoramic view of Cayuga Lake and Toro Run Vineyards with a cup of coffee in hand, sitting on the cottage deck. Follow that with a walk on the grounds, making a stop into the Toro Run tasting room, being sure to try all of the delicious Toro Run wines while snacking on hors d'oeuvres and chatting with Jim, Maureen, Chris and Aimee. Next, try to decide on your favorite wine to purchase, head back to the cottage and fire up the grill for dinner!

What makes this cottage unique

There are so many hidden treasures in the Finger Lakes. The Vacation Cottage at Toro Run lies in the middle of so many opportunities for the active traveler who loves spectacular scenery, great food and wine, who also knows how to relax.

Come see the true beauty of the fall season in the Finger Lakes, it's just around the corner!

Or maybe you're a ski bunny? Enjoy snowshoeing? The Ovid/Romulus/Ithaca area offers trails for winter activities, and there are ski resorts that are just about an hour away.

Perfect House & Location

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a girls weekend getaway and wine tour. The location was perfect being centrally located to all of the wineries on Cayuga Lake. It's a large house with plenty of sleeping room for everyone and all the amenities of home. After a great day at the wineries, it was nice to come back to the house for dinner and relaxation in the large living room. The views from all of the windows was amazing. I'd definitely recommend this house to future groups.
