  • We serve cook’s choice, family style in our sunny dining room. It’s ok to come to breakfast in your jammies, we’re not all that fancy here at the lake! If you are conversation-phobic, or just want to sleep in a bit, check out our Breakfast in Bed add-on in the Indulgences section.

In any case, breakfasts are substantial. We make a big effort to use locally sourced, organic foods and often pull produce straight from our own organic gardens to put on your plates. If you have a food allergy, or must follow a special diet, please notify us in advance so that we can plan for your visit.

Our coffee is black as the devil, hot as hell, pure as an angel and sweet as love!
