Stay Inn, Dine Inn
After exploring and enjoying all that Chautauqua County has to offer, return to the comfort of your room at the end of the day, relax and let us prepare your romantic four-course dinner. No need to drive, just stay and dine by candle-light and fire-side in our dining-room. You’re welcome to bring your own selection of wine to compliment your meal; great selections abound from the many wineries through the region.
We believe that dining should be non-rushed and relaxing so that you may enjoy and savor the flavors of the meal with friends and loved ones, all while creating great memories. Our many travel and especially our trip to Italy really brought this philosophy to light for us; a meal is more than just food to eat.
The creation of your menu
We look for fresh seasonal foods and strive to use locally grown ingredients when possible. Our menu selections for the night are determined one week in advance and you will have two choices for each course. Before you arrive you will be sent the menu for the evening for you to select your meal. Ice water, ice tea and coffee and tea are included… And, you are welcome to bring your own selection of wine or beer to enjoy with your dinner.
Home cooking with an elegant twist and our commitment to delicious quality food. All we ask of you is to show up and MANGIA!!
