What is the difference between the Main Inn and the Farmhouse?
About 90 years! The Main Inn was built in 1995 to serve as the original bed and breakfast. The breakfast dining room is in the Main Inn for all guests. The Farmhouse was built in 1905 and has been somewhat renovated so that the rooms are comfortable. We recently installed new beds, flooring and a new central air and heating system to increase the comfort and coziness of the space. All that being said, the Farmhouse is still an early 20th century farmhouse building.
What are your breakfasts like?
We serve a full country breakfast, for example most Sunday mornings we are serving pancakes, sausage, cheese grits, scrambled eggs, and baked apples. The menu varies daily to include breakfast casseroles, omelets made or order, or Dina's special ricotta cheese based cakes served with apple butter and sour cream. Coffee, tea, and orange juice are always available.
Do you serve dinner?
No, we only serve breakfast, and only to our overnight guests. We are not open to the public like a restaurant.
