Each morning the appetizing aroma of coffee and cooking breakfast fill the house and act as a gentler version of a "wake-up call". Home-made with fresh ingredients, full breakfasts include meat, eggs, carbs, and seasonal fruit. You'll also get to sample some local items like the guest-favorite granola and meats from the butcher. Savory specialties include the rich spinach goat cheese quiche and the hearty vegetable du jour potato frittata. Treat yourself to something sweet either home-baked or from one of the local bakeries; favorites include banana bread, cornmeal, and cream cheese pancakes, and pumpkin date bread.
