This place is a must see (and eat)! It's over 100 years old and has so much character and charm. Food is amazing and produce is picked right from their organic farm on site.

Great food, okay service, fabulous views. Never a bad meal, the menu is fresh, seasonal and mostly local. They have a Tavern or Dining Room, plus dining on the deck weather permitting. Never a bad meal.
