Our breakfasts generally include plenty of fresh fruit, and homemade bread or baked goods. 

Breakfast is typically served between 7:30 and 9:30 AM, determined the night before, based on the guests’ needs and schedules. We also take guests’ dietary requirements and preferences into consideration. We serve a scrumptious, multi-course breakfast in the formal dining room on bone china with sterling silver and linen tablecloth and napkins. 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 herbs and vegetables from our own garden and locally grown produce. Breakfast fare is abundant and is typically served buffet-style. In addition to plenty of fresh fruit, we serve baked goods such as homemade bread, muffins, scones, fruit breads, apple crisp, pancakes or waffles; an egg dish; a breakfast meat, such as sausages or bacon; and often potatoes and/or vegetable accompaniments.
