Additions for your stay
Staying in a home-stay bed and breakfast is a way to relax and enjoy peace and quiet while visiting an incredible location. Guests can find a number of spots to relax by themselves or with others in the Library sitting room, the living room, on the wrap around front porch, or on the second floor enclosed porch. Complimentary WIFI along with a collection of books and games are available to enjoy. Breakfast is relaxed and served in the dining room. You will come down to fresh brewed coffee and juice. Then, depending on the day or the season, the fruit starter will be fresh and prepared differently each day. A bread basket may have warm homemade scones, fresh berry muffins, or multi-grain bread, fresh from the oven and served with butter and jam. Still have room? The breakfast entree might be pumpkin or berry pancakes made from scratch, yummy and healthy french toast, a fluffy cheddar cheese omelet with oven roasted rosemary potatoes, eggs benedict, or something completely different. The breakfast menu served each day accommodates any guest with dietary restrictions or allergies and guests who stay several nights enjoy a different starter, bread, and entree course each day.
