“This is a dinner place for special events and is about an hour and a half away - it's a beautiful drive to get there. You must call ahead to ask if they have room for extra diners (other than their lodgers). This is wonderful chef's choice cuisine, featuring local ingredients, in season - 7/18 $30 per person.. The grounds are lovely with seating niches, trout stream, walking trails, open air fire place inside a huge pavilion. Inquire about what activities might be available to you as a dinner guest.”
