Breakfast is typically served between 7:30 and 9:30 AM, determined the night before, based on the guests’ needs/schedules. We also take guests’ dietary requirements and preferences into consideration. Arrangements can be made for something to go for those who must eat outside of regular breakfast times.
We use many locally produced ingredients and products, such as local maple syrup, locally roasted coffee, and in season, fresh vegetables and herbs from our own garden and locally grown produce. We always serve plenty of fresh fruit, frequently in Susan’s carved watermelon basket, which is a favorite. We also make the best of seasonal fruit by making fruit breads, apple crisp, blueberry muffins, cherry or peach cobbler, and more.

We always serve at least one egg dish, such as a quiche or frittata, and provide eggs-to-order on request. Chef David comes up with some unique offerings, such as using breaded baked eggplant slices instead of an English muffin for the base for something like eggs Benedict. He might use large portabella mushrooms as the "pie crust" for a quiche or other egg dish. Shown below are breaded baked eggplant slices topped with a poached egg, roasted red peppers and spinach, a homemade cream sauce, and melted cheese.

We typically serve at least one breakfast meat, such as sausages, bacon, or ham. We find that many people do not make bacon at home so they are delighted to wake up to the smell of bacon
Plus, we often serve potatoes and/or vegetable accompaniments.
Our menus vary from day to day, and if you’re here for several days, we’ll come up with a different menu every day.
