Parking for bikes in the garage, with room for trailers both at the top and at the bottom of the drive.

We are best known for two things, breakfast and sunsets. Don’t have any input over the latter but will do our best to knock your boots off at breakfast. We serve three courses, a fresh pastry each morning, different fruit each day, and of course a main course. We’ve won numerous ribbons for baking and culinary contests. Choose where you want to eat, rear patio, front veranda overlooking Townsend, dining room, or the morning room where we have a wood burning fire each morning during the cold months.
