Your country morning at the Inn begins with a day-brightening breakfast, prepared by Deborah and served at your choice of three tables in the dining or sun rooms, overlooking the tranquil lawn and gardens.
Fresh, imaginative and healthy, the locally-sourced, multi-course breakfast will have you off to a great start. Home-baked scones and biscuits served with local preserves; French toast made from baguettes in the classic manner; grits from the Luquire family mill in South Carolina; seasonal fresh fruits—like the Inn itself, the breakfasts are beyond compare.
The beauty and bounty of the region are legendary, and the abundance of local farms as well as family-owned local businesses is evident throughout the menu. There are eggs from Cool Whisper Farm, coffee from Barrington Coffee Roasting Co., properly brewed Harney & Sons loose-leaf teas, preserves from Beth’s Farm Kitchen….not to mention all the vegetables, honey, bread, cheese, milk, cream and more from the Berkshires and Hudson Valley. Deborah makes use of all to create a meal not only artful, tasteful, and utterly delicious, but that brings pleasure to locavores.
Fresh-brewed coffee and tea are served daily from 7:30, and breakfast at any time from 8:30-10. Special dietary needs are cheerfully accommodated with advance notice.
