About Wendy Strine

Arthur purchased the original family farm from his grandparents estate in the spring of 1976. In the fall of that same year he and Wendy were married and in late 1977 started their own family in the same house where his mother as well as her siblings were born and raised.

Over the years several neighboring farms were purchased and now with a total of 168 acres there is plenty of room to work, play, hike, and hunt.

After 38 years we live just 1.5 miles up the road from the Home Stead House. Our family of six has grown to 15, some live near by, others live farther away, but they all love to come home for the Grape and Apple Harvest as well as the Christmas Holiday, when we celebrate the Lord's blessings to us.

Wendy Strine purchased this farmhouse in 1976

Why Wendy Strine chose Ripley

We love this house and piece of property. It's beautiful, quiet, has a breathtaking view of Lake Erie (and Canada on a clear day) and is nestled among giant Maples and acres of Concord Grapes. We would love to be able to share this with you.

A very clean spacious home!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our time here. It was a bit drafty—especially when the temperature dropped at night. When asked, the owners immediately turned the temperature up for us. The home was very clean and furnished with comfortable furniture and an up-to-date TV and WiFi access. Make sure to bring your own toilet paper—the contract said that it was provided—but one roll for 5 women for 4 nights was definitely not enough. Overall, a nice experience. Thank you.

Very clean. Very charming. Exactly what we needed.

  • 5 of 5

We traveled cross country to return "back home" to visit family over the Thanksgiving holiday. The Homestead house was exactly what we needed. It is large enough & located close enough to each my & my husband's family to comfortably have had them come to us some of the time we were there in order to minimize some of our need to run ourselves ragged trying to spend time with all of the people special to our hearts.

If I had any complaints, it is only minimal and was easily enough taken care of.

My son & I have asthma issues & the air freshners thru out the home were a bit overwhelming & we needed to pull the inhaler out.

I would highly highly recommend this property to anyone needing a place to stay.

Also, as an aside. I had the pleasure of briefly meeting Wendy. Very very nice host.

This was our second stay at Arwen and it was great.

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for a few folks in town to do some smallmouth bass fishing on Lake Erie. The best part of each day was relaxing under the shade trees and enjoying the great view across the vineyards at Lake Erie. We are already planning a return trip.

Homestead house review -Ripley NY

  • 4 of 5

Clean, quiet and peaceful. Firewood for pit and a grill provided. Within easy driving distance to everything we wanted to do. Beds were comfortable and towels were large and soft. A great place to unwind and reconnect with family and friends.
