For a relaxing, finishing touch on your heart of Vermont day, consider reserving dinner service at the inn one evening of your stay. Dinner is four courses, attractively presented, and is served table d’hote (no menu) at a leisurely Old World pace. With advance notice, dietary restrictions are always cheerfully accommodated.
A list of about two dozen labels of moderately-priced wine from Vermont, the Americas, and the Old World, plus house wine by the glass or carafe and Vermont craft beers by the bottle, are available for your enjoyment at dinner. Four recent dinner menus:
1 Red lentil soup ~ Organic garden salad with house dressing ~ Roast chicken breast, asparagus, risotto ~ key lime pie ~ coffee and tea service
2 Russian borsch ~ carrot-raisin-pomegranate salad ~ pork tenderloin with baked Macintosh apple, organic baby carrots, red bliss mashed potatoes ~ Seth’s Nana’s triple chocolate layer cake ~ coffee and tea service
3 Greek lemon soup ~ walnut-pear-gorgonzola salad ~ sugar-and-spice rubbed salmon, Himalayan basmati rice, local butter-sugar corn on the cob ~ maple mousse ~ coffee and tea service
4 New England corn chowder ~ tomato-mozzerella-basil salad ~ tenderloin of beef, roasted potatoes, green beans amandine ~ apple pie with Vermont cheddar ~ coffee and tea service
Dinner is $40 per person, and is available when six or more guests desire to dine in. Vermont Liquor Control regulations prohibit consumption in the common areas of wine and beer not purchased on-premises.
