An extensive Wine selection, a variety of Local Craft Beers and Cocktails are now available to our Inn guests as well as our Restaurant patrons. We invite you to join us for Dinner and enjoy one of our new offerings!

There are a couple of changes that go along with the new license.

By law, we can no longer permit brown bagging.

We can no longer offer complimentary wine, so we will be offering other refreshments to our Inn guests during the former Wine & Cheese hour.

Dinner Music: Paul Bowman frequently graces our Dining Room with a continental mix of music on the classical guitar; ranging from Bach, Broadway, the Beatles, Brazilian and Beyond.....

Check with us for dates.
