Guests expecting a continental breakfast will be disappointed. Why? Because we do a healthy breakfast made with local ingredients and it’s different every day.
Local farm fresh eggs with chives from the garden, homemade home fries with bacon and sausage, pancakes, pastries and yogurt and fruit parfaits might be on the menu on any given morning.
Borrowing from English bed and breakfast tradition, high tea is served from 4 p
m in the afternoon. Legend has it that the Duchess of Bedford (1788-1861) complained of lack of energy in the afternoons and instituted a “high tea” featuring light fare such as crumpets, scones, crustless sandwiches and pates to keep her going until dinner.
The emphasis was on conversation and presentation, a tradition Ms. Wolfe will continue with her array of cookies, breads, pastries, and whatever is appropriate for the guests, the time of year, and even the weather.
