Carriage House Artisan Breakfast


“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”

“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh.  “What do you say, Piglet?”

“I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet.

Pooh nodded thoughtfully.  “It’s the same thing,” he said.

—A.A. Milne


Good morning and welcome to our new Artisan Breakfast, breakfast crafted to reflect the joy and delights of each of the four seasons. Why artisanal? Like the Medieval artisans such as the weavers, goldsmiths, tailors, and wheelwrights, we choose the finest ingredients and fashion them into a breakfast that not only satisfies the tummy but encourages the lively conversation and fellowship our table offers. Warm, hearty entrees accompanied by house-made breads and pastries finishing with a seasonal fruit compote or salad along with steaming pots of tea or coffee and juice create a sumptuous meal that would meet the high standards of the guild.

We buy fresh, local, when possible, seasonal products as the starting point for a delicious, wholesome, and energizing breakfast to help you put the best foot forward in your day. We are very happy to accommodate guests who eat vegetarian, vegan, or gluten-free. Please let us know your preference in the comment box at registration.

A sample breakfast might include:

        French Toast Souffle, sausages, warm fruit compote, coffee, and juice.


        Roasted Red Pepper Strata, breakfast custards, Carriage House Artisan Bread, coffee, and juice.


Carriage House Granola, greek yogurt with fresh fruit, coffee, and juice.


For guests with an early morning appointment, we serve coffee or tea and a house-made pastry on the porch or to go.

Breakfast is served daily at 8:30 in our elegantly restored dining room. Let breakfast be the first exciting event in your day.
