Sept 3, 2014 - Breakfast at the Inn

Are you ready to start your great day in the mountains? How about breakfast? It’s included with your stay.

We serve a full breakfast which begins with fresh fruit, juice and coffee/tea followed by hearty main courses, such as Elegant Scrambled Eggs, Stuffed French Toast, Brown Sugar Oatmeal Pancakes, Baked Scrambled Eggs or Herbed Eggs with a side of bacon or sausage. Lately, Robert has been making some tasty “quick bread” such as Pumpkin Bread and Almond Poppy Seed Bread. (We all know they are really Cake for Breakfast!)

There are a lot of people out there who want to be chefs. We don’t. We focus on a breakfast which is nice to look at and even better to eat. Judy enjoys making your meal look wonderful. Guests often linger, sharing a last cup of coffee. The entrée is different daily, alternating between an egg and a sweet dish.

Fried eggs, grits, and gravy are not on our regular menu (our mothers were from southern Connecticut and southern Pennsylvania, NOT the Deep South). Our moms generally just fried an egg. Seems pretty ordinary to us!! We want to prepare something a bit more special–a dish you don’t eat at home regularly (but not odd, either).

Questions, concerns, special diets, health issues or allergies? Talk to us. (See above; we are not chefs and the show “Chopped” with last minute ingredients included or omitted is NOT our idea of a good time.) If you have special dietary needs, please let us know when you make your reservation so your meal is equal to every other from our kitchen, prepared with equal thought and love.

We serve our breakfast meat on the side and have a vegetarian breakfast “meat” selection available. If you are dieting we can provide smaller portions or substitutes such as cereal or oatmeal. Dishes for diabetics, gluten-free, no lactose all aren’t a problem.  Our goal is to provide a great dish which is as similar to the one others are eating as we can get it.  Of course, with Paleo diets this is not possible; in that case, it is the most lovely dish!

Breakfast time is generally 8:30-10 a.m. or by arrangement with the innkeeper.
 Self-serve continental breakfasts are available for those needing an early start to their day. (This is popular with our business guests.) Breakfast in the room is at added cost. Please ask the innkeeper. We can also provide a “table for two” if you really don’t like talking to others are breakfast.
