Cafe
“"Charming" doesn't begin to describe the vibe of this coffee shop that was converted from a farmhouse. Plenty of spaces to relax, work, and/or socialize, including an inviting outdoor space. Oh, and there's great coffee, too. :)”

Lodging
“Fine dining in the smaller intimate Oak Room with a menu that changes seasonally. The tavern also has a great menu, and offers more seating options on busy nights. (tip: if the Oak Room is full, you can still order from that menu in the Tavern). Craft cocktails and a nice wine list round out the offering. ”

“Excellent Thai food, the chicken wings are phenomenal. Great place for broth noodles on a cold day. The spring rolls are healthy and delicious. They kick up kid's meals to adult taste buds, but still kid friendly. ”
