Ask About Our Pet Policy
To better serve you, at times
(during peak season) breakfasts may be served in two shifts . We
also offer take-out for guests to take breakfast back to their
cottage or cabin, and in summer, trays for breakfasts outdoors in
the gardens by the fountains, the waterfall, or the side porch.
The Inn has acquired a new baby kitty, born in September 2010. He stays mostly in the innkeeper's quarters but likes to come out and greet the guests. If you are mildly allergic to cats, please let us know in advance and we will keep him away from the common areas. If you are severely allergic to cats, we suggest that you do not stay in the main house, but rather rather reserve one of the Briarwood cottages or the Bark House cabin.
