  • 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 you are welcome to come down a little later and/or take your breakfast up to your room.

  • On weekends we serve a full, hot, at the lake-style breakfast at 9am.
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.
