New Premier Lodging Comes to the Grand River Valley Wine Region
After years of planning, Vineyard Woods is now taking reservations for Memorial Day and beyond. Set among 10 acres of wine grapes and 16 acres of rolling woods, construction is scheduled for completion on Vineyard Villa, with three private suites that overlook 40 acres of pristine vineyard countryside, and the Oak Cottage, set in 16 wooded acres.
With likely expansion in the future, owner Scott Runyan is excited about what’s to come: “This is the first business of its kind in Ashtabula County…We are looking forward to providing a getaway spot for couples or friends and showing them what the region has to offer. We spent years studying similar businesses near Hocking Hills, Ohio’s Amish Country, the Finger Lakes, and the Niagara-on-the-Lake wine region to come up with our own style to bring to our area.”
The Grand River Viticulture region offers 20 wineries. With Vineyard Woods set in the heart of the region, there will be much to do for customers looking to relax in a beautiful setting. In addition, the lodging is a short drive from Lake Erie, the Grand River, 19 covered bridges, parks and historic Bridge Street in Ashtabula Harbor.
Vineyard Woods is a family owned business aimed at driving agritourism to Ashtabula County. The vineyards are not only a beautiful setting for our guests, they also provide local wineries with much needed grape production.
