Everything we ate here was fresh, delicious and beautifully presented. You do not have to venture away from the inn for meals. Three times a day, made to order goodness waits. The prices compare to other restaurants in the area and patking with no hassle.

We stayed a short weekend but went twice for dinner. Could not stayed away from the fresh and warm rolls. Hard to pick between grilled trout or fettuccine shrimp scampi, soup was great, dessert even better and service was excellent.

It may seem strange to praise sandwiches, but they were marvelous. They were prepared to perfection with the freshest and most flavorful ingredients. The dining porch is beautiful and the service was great. Plan to return for dinner soon.
