Had 'free' breakfast buffet here. Odd that kids stay 'free' at inn but couldn't have 'free' breakfast. The buffet was nothing but ordinary. No sausage, scrambled eggs only. Donuts from a box.

30 of us put orders in prior to going to the restaurant. They did a fantastic job on accommodating us, getting orders out effeciently and with good service. It was busy but we enjoyed the food. Potatoe skins, salads, soups, steaks, all great.

My wife's sewing group stays here for weekend retreats. The Inn provides extras like warm cookies in the afternoon for no charge. Just a comfortable place that's very friendly!

Absolutely no wine is served at any time and you can't take your own bottle to the restaurant. Reason? Too close to a church!
