We had a fantastic stay at Its a Grape Life. We had 3 couples, a mom and toddler, and 4 "big" kids (ages 12-10). The bunkbed room was perfect for the "big kids" and the toddler slept with her mom. The downstairs bedroom was perfect for our parents. The house was as described and as shown in the photographs: very clean, well stocked with respect to old fashioned games and with respect to kitchen tools/dishes, and plenty of chairs (inside and out) for everyone. We all sat together for meals around the kitchen table (we all fit), and we cooked all our meals without difficulty in the kitchen. It was also nice that each bedroom has its own thermostat. The parking is as roomy as described, and the dock and back area are excellent as well. It was cold while we were there, but the kids still enjoyed some fishing and we enjoyed a nice fire and s'mores.
Communications with the owners were prompt and clear; they were easy to work with and returned the security deposit promptly. I highly recommend Its a Grape Life
Just returned home from a very nice two night New Years Eve stay at this lovely home. Chris was very accommodating to our arrival and departure times and was very good about communicating quickly with any questions we had. The home was located right on the water with only a small street to cross to be at the lake (probably 35 yards from front door to lake). There’s also a lovely side yard of the property facing Seneca lake that would be a great spot to hang out during a summer visit with fire pit, etc. Upon arriving the house was heating up and everything we needed was there for us to use. The two bedrooms were very comfortable as well. The wood burning fireplace was a nice touch and living room very comfortable. Prior to our arrival we had requested that our dog would be allowed to join us and Chris was wonderful about allowing that to happen. This truly made our stay that much more enjoyable being able to be away with our fur child. The location of the home was great as it was right along the wine trail half way between Geneva and Watkins Glen (about 20 minutes or so to both). There are a few wineries that are within just a few minutes from the house as well. We tend to be a little particular with certain things and where we stay, but there really wasn’t anything bad I could say, well except it was 35 and rainy but that’s kind of expected in the winter haha. I would certainly like to come back for a summer trip when everything is in season and happening in the area. Thank you again Chris for having us at your home. Happy New Year!
