Dining Room - Meals are generally served buffet-style in our Dining Room which can seat up to 30 people. Additional seating is available in the Sunroom, increasing occupancy to 70.
Meals are provided 3 times daily: breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Breakfast is usually served continental style, with assorted breads, bagels, and cold cereals available, along with a hot cereal, yogurt, a hot breakfast entree, and fresh fruit. For some retreats, the last day will feature light snacks in the early morning and a late morning Brunch. Lunch and dinner are usually hot meals with fresh bread and salad available.
We serve meat, usually in the form of beef, pork, chicken, turkey, and fish. A vegetarian option is also available at each meal; we ask that this be reserved for those who request vegetarian meals, as there is not enough of the vegetarian option prepared for everyone to eat.
Snacks such as cold cereals, fruits and nuts, along with coffee, assorted hot teas, chilled water, and iced tea, are available 24 hours a day in the dining room.
Please note that we can not always accommodate special dietary requests for food allergies. If you have specific food allergies, we suggest you contact us ahead of time and bring some special food for yourself to supplement any food that we serve which you can eat. Refrigerator space can be provided for you if needed to store your food.
