Our Gourmet Breakfast
Breakfast—Where & When—The Choice Should Be Yours
We specialize in serving a full homemade breakfast. Using fresh, local, ingredients whenever possible, we offer a variety of dishes and hope to make each meal different and memorable. Life is busy. Often, we don’t take the time for breakfast, let alone a leisurely one. So, because you are here, we want to offer you a breakfast experience. Now, there are many ways to experience breakfast at our Inn, all of them delicious.
- Breakfast in our beautiful dining room
- Breakfast on our quaint covered porch (seasonal)
- Breakfast delivered to your room (suite rooms only and always complimentary room service)
- The "Grab & Go" Continental (sometimes you just have to be on the run
Every breakfast includes juice or smoothie, coffee/tea, fruit (fresh when possible, fruit parfaits, fruit soup), meat, entrée of either an incredible egg dish (e.g., strata, quiche, and egg bake, hearty breakfast casseroles) with a sweet treat (muffin, scone, coffee cake) or fabulous homemade specialty pancakes, thick Belgian waffles of many varieties, baked French toast with scrumptious toppings, or decadent bread puddings. All uniquely different—all delicious.
We believe that when you are away on vacation, you should have the flexibility of breakfast time. So, whether you are an early morning riser, or long to just sleep in, you can rest-assured, we try to work with your preferred breakfast time! Therefore, we don’t have specified times for breakfast, but do our best to work with your schedule.
Our land was once one of the largest apple orchards and berry farms in the region. So, of course, many of our specialties often include our apples, blackberries, black raspberries, and pears, fresh-picked from our land. The menus will change based on what is seasonally available. To tantalize your taste buds, see a few examples on our "sample menu" page!
If you have special dietary restrictions, please let us know when booking your room so we can do the necessary preparation to accommodate your needs. We have catered to heart-healthy, Vegetarian, Gluten & Lactose-free, and beyond, and enjoy learning and experimenting with new and creative dishes.
Welcome with Wine
A Toast To Your Getaway
As part of your experience at the Apple Tree Lane B&B, we offer a complimentary glass of wine or other available beverage of choice (e.g., non-alcoholic sparkling cider, soda, etc). On some weekends, we may have appetizers such as cheese & crackers, sliced vegetables and humus, or hot artichoke spinach dip and French bread points, to go with your wine. We This is a good time to meet other guests, ask the Innkeepers questions about the Inn or area, and simply enjoy a toast to your getaway! If privacy is more what you desire, we are happy to pour you a beverage of choice that you can enjoy in your room, strolling down to the river, or sitting on the covered porch or garden swing.
Dining Room Buffet Treats
Our guests love the sweet treats often awaiting you on the buffet. Whether it is our specialty Chocolate Chip Plus Dream Cookies, Magic Squares, Almond Cream-Cheese Bars, or a slice of Pistachio Bread, we are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth—whether you are coming or going. Of course, grab a beverage from our Keurig bar to go with it!
Cozy Up with a Warm Drink on a Chilly Morning
Let’s Start With Coffee/Tea/Hot Chocolate/Hot Apple Cider
Awake to the aroma of freshly ground and brewed coffee. Our hand-thrown pottery logo mugs (they are for sale in our gift shop too!) are waiting for you on our warming tray, helping ensure warm hands and a hot cup of coffee! For those of you who like flavored coffee, we have three Starbuck syrups to choose from, including sugar-free.
Not a coffee drinker? Then grab a hot cup of tea from our assortment or a cup of hot chocolate. Of course, the guest refrigerator in the dining room is always stocked with water or sodas, if that is more to your liking. Fresh-brewed sun tea is often set out during the summer months or just ask!
If you are up earlier than we are (which is unusual, but does happen!), or of you want hot beverages at any other time of the day, the beverage center and Keurig machine is there for your use 24/7. Help yourself! If you want to bring something special (e.g., a special soda, or favorite bottle of wine, for example) there is usually room in the guest refrigerator for your convenience.
