Bear Creek Winery offers three different units for accommodation options.

The property itself is stunning, with the koi pond a mesmerizing and serene space.
The Bear Creek Winery operates as an eco-friendly establishment. They both recycle and use biodegradable, earth friendly cleaning products.
Because of the romantic atmosphere of the property, they do ask that no children under the age of 12 stay in the suites. There are also no pets allowed.
The suites come standard with flat screen televisions and a 10% discount on wine purchased. Don't forget that your suite comes with complimentary items like wine tastings, coffee, and tea. You also get to enjoy a free bottle of wine and chocolates.
All of the luxury suites have access to custom stone hot tub, koi pond, water fall, fire pit area, horse shoes, and nature trail.

Their tasting room is a gorgeous blend of warm woods, and comfortable seating.
They also host many events during the entire year. From the Garden Club celebrations, to Christmas fun, and wine tastings year round, this is definitely a place to come and celebrate!
Many of their wines are award winning! This past year at the 2018 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition they brought home silver for their Wild Berry wine, the bronze for their Strawberry Rhubarb, and another bronze for their delectable Alaskan Port.
They offer a great selection of fruit wine for the discerning palate! Enjoy any of their blueberry, apple, black current, golden raspberry, gooseberry, or red raspberry wine, among many more! Their incredible Alaskan Port is so delicious, with molasses and warm vanilla notes.
