There are many great accommodations which accept dogs listed on ourHotels page.  Many waive their dog fees.  

Some folks choose to rent a cottage or cabin on the lake.   These can often be found at websites like VRBO (Vacation rentals by Owner).   Others stay at an area hotel.   Some folks like to stay at a campground cabin or in a camper.

Just don't wait to reserve a place to stay or you may miss out.  Things fill up quickly in July in this area.

One of our new hotels for this year is Quality Inn/ Waterloo (formerly Holiday Inn).  They still have rooms available as of 6/16/18.

The Grapehound           Wine Tour®

Advance registration for The Grapehound Wine Tour® has closed.  You may register at the event: 


Thursday 5-8PM at Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards, 5712 NY St Rt 414 Hector, NY


Friday or Saturday 11AM-5PM at The Firehouse Tap Room/Lost Creek Brewery 7160 Main St Ovid NY

The Grapehound Wine Tour® is a week-long event for greyhound and sighthound owners.  Your dogs may accompany you at all wineries, distilleries and brew pubs.  The official schedule runs from Thursday (7/26) to Sunday (7/29).  People may also sign up as an "Early Bird" and arrive early, before the event officially begins on Thursday evening, July 26.

The cost to register is $31 and this covers your choice of tasting glass, ten tickets for free tastings at ten wineries, distilleries or brew pubs, a welcome with hors d'oeuvres at Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards, a concert Friday evening and numerous events throughout the weekend at our host wineries.  (Tastings at most wineries in summer usually cost between $5-$7, so our $31 fee is lees than half what you would pay normally for ten winery visits.)

You must be twenty-one years of age to register or taste wine.  Younger family members may attend with their parents.
