Vinifera, The Inn on Winery Row
Ranked #3 of 4 Grimsby B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 18, 2013

We stayed at Vinifera for a one night getaway in Wine Country. The home itself is beautiful and very well restored, the property alone is fantastic. Wish it had been warmer as we would have loved to sit by the pool and relax!. The suite we selected (the Bridal suite) was VERY ornate but the bed very comfortable, and the room & bathroom full of "little touches" that were very special, you can tell they went to a lot of trouble to make the inn comfortable and beautiful. The owners made us feel welcome and showed us around. Barb gave lots of suggestions for good wineries to visit which was a great tip, helped us plan our route. Breakfast the next day was delicious. All in all, went off without a hitch. Our only "problem" was that as we were a younger couple, we felt as though Barb treated us a bit like a mother. She scolded my husband for using the wrong fork at one point during breakfast, scolded us for passing up on one of the wineries she suggested we visit, and attempted to give us etiquette lessons. It was more than a bit uncomfortable. We both felt as though our own parents would have enjoyed the stay far more than we did. Also, she began playing some type of relaxation music quite loudly on Sunday morning which was too bad as we were the only guests in the inn, and we were sleeping --- why blast the music so early on a Sunday morning? All in all, a great spot to visit, we just had a personality conflict. We didn't mind the kitties on the property but if you had allergies, you should watch out.

We called last minute to book a room as our plans for accommodation elsewhere fell through, the hosts Barb and Ron were very welcoming. The room was so beautiful and made me feel like I was in another time and place, and unlike some B&B's each room has a beautifully updated private bathroom. The complimentary breakfast of 4 courses was amazing and we immediately connected with our hosts, we would certainly recommend this place to friends and family and will definitely stay again if we're back in town!!
Cheers to them for comfortable and quality service! Some say that our unexpected travels lead us to the places we ought to be...

We were so pleased to find this gem while on a short getaway. Barb, the host is wonderfully friendly, and is very knowledgeable about the local wineries, which was a great help to us. The inn itself is beautiful, the rooms very comfortable, (we were in the "Vintage Garden") and breakfast is absolutely delicious. We will certainly be recommending it to our friends and hopefully we'll be staying there again ourselves.

We had a wonderful stay at Vinifera. The Allen Room was spacious, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. We enjoyed the upstairs balcony, which was private and quiet. They had a great barn where we safely locked our bikes. Barb and Ron, the owners of Vinifera, were kind, friendly, and very gracious hosts. Everything about our stay was fabulous, including the gourmet breakfast served every morning in the impeccably decorated dining room. We loved this inn.

Room Tip: We loved the Allen Room because it was spacious and beautiful. All the rooms are nicely decorated...

It was such a wonderful experience, I wish we had more time there! The bridal sweet was beautiful, the breakfast in the morning was absolutely delicious, the pool was nice and overall, I found it to be the most beautiful B&B interior we've seen. Real, old world charm. Barb and Ron were so kind and fun to talk to. Next time we go to wine country, we're staying at Vinifera again.

Room Tip: The bridal suite is beautiful. Book it if you can.

In the area for my daughter's wedding,our family, English relatives and the old friend who performed the wedding took over Barb and Ron's beautiful B&B for 3 days.
The welcome and support throughout our visit was warm, the house and rooms not only nicely decorated but clean, quiet and comfortable while the breakfasts are in a class of their own !
We had a great little family reunion on the day before the wedding around the outdoor pool which itself is surrounded by beautiful flower gardens.
This is a place to relax and be pampered by dedicated hosts.

We recently had the opportunity to stay at this beautiful B&B in Grimsby as we were in the area for a family wedding. Upon arrival with greetings from Barb and Ron, we felt as if we were home. The house is stunning and beautifully decorated due to Barb's talents and the rooms georgeous and very comfortable. We were welcomed with a glass of wine and a tour of this beautiful historic home. The four course breakfast was amazing and delicious. A truly relaxing stay. We had the opportunity to explore a few of the wineries in the area as well as some local cuisine. Would love to return and participate in one of their Chef's dinners with wine pairings. Would certainly recommend this beautiful B&B to anyone looking for a special getaway.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Allen Suite. Large (King bed) and beautifully done with every attention to detail...
