A lot of places boast about their breakfasts, but we don't have to...our guests rave about our cooking. Breakfast at the Featherbed Inn is a unique culinary adventure. We strive to prepare breakfasts that are as surprising as they are delicious and satisfying. Karen's outrageously perfect scones are always served, followed by a creative fruit course (how do charred plums with goat cheese, olive oil, and black pepper sound?), and rounded out with a main course unlike any other (savory dishes like shakshuka or potato latkes with poached eggs and chipotle crema, or sweet dishes like apple clafoutis or lemon ricotta pancakes). We use local ingredients whenever possible, and we bring our food scraps to feed the pigs down the road at Gaylord Farm — so we are truly table-to-farm-to-table. No one leaves the table hungry!
Running an inn during the pandemic has pushed us to think about how to ensure our guests won't have to worry about meals. With space limited at our wonderful local restaurants, reserving a table can be a challenge. Beginning winter 2020-21, we will be offering family-style dinners for our guests. Please speak with us in advance if you would like to partake. Guests staying in the Brittany Cottage have their own fully-equipped kitchen, and the rooms in the Jenny Cottage (Shelley, Phillipa, and Ellen) have access to a shared kitchenette.
Covid has also led us to re-work how and where to serve meals safely. During the warmer seasons, guests can eat outdoors on our porches or at tables set in our gardens. When the weather won't cooperate with al fresco dining, we organize our dining room and living rooms to allow for social distance, thoroughly disinfecting the entire area between seatings.
We know that many of our guests have dietary restrictions, allergies, and preferences. Please let us know ahead of your stay if you have dietary requirements, and we will be sure to cook you up something delicious that meets your needs.
