Food & Wine

Plain and simple. We LOVE food. We LOVE breakfast. And we love to offer a dessert buffet nightly.

Breakfast is offered within a two hour window so that guests can come early, late or stay the entire time! Beginning with sweet breads, a choice of juice and always available coffee and tea, they then progress to a fruit course and choice of either sweet or savory entree with all the accompaniments. Bread of the day is always homemade and may be a homemade English Muffin; Wheat with Black Sesame Seeds; Honey Oat or Country White.

For those guests leaving before breakfast, a packed breakfast is always an option.

About 7PM, guests will find homemade desserts on the side board in the dining room. Always faced with the dilemma of "should I try it all at once", the choices may be a Triple Chocolate Cake; our reknowned White Chocolate Brownies; everyone's favorite...Lemon Bars or choose from the three or four selections of cookies. Fruit....for the strong of always available.

Our beverage cart is always available in the Dining Room as well. Coffee, an assortment of tea, syrups, hot chocolate and homemade marshmallows are available. The Guest Pantry offers bottled water and soft drinks and a wine cooler is available for guests use.
