Step into the Terrace Dining Room and experience a truly memorable evening that starts with a warm welcome and smile from the host and ends after you’ve finished the last bite of a Panna Cotta with Blueberry Sauce and the last sip of smooth (never bitter!) Speeder & Earl’s® Coffee. Each installment of the four-course dinner is served by knowledgeable and friendly serving staff whose sole focus is to ensure your utmost satisfaction. Or join us for Sunday Brunch, where the atmosphere is relaxed and the choices are numerous. Bask in the warmth of the large fireplace by winter or relax by the windows with a view of the valley and the mountains of Hubbardton beyond.
Our MeadowSweet and GardenSong residents join us in either of the neighborhood dining rooms for three meals a day, with offerings as varied as Blueberry Pancakes to Egg Sandwiches for Breakfast, Sandwiches to Casseroles to various Hot Entrées for Lunch and full three-course meals for dinner.
The Bistro is open for Lunch Monday through Friday, offering Lunch options that are as light (or not) as you would like for you, your friends and your family.
The Dining department is headed up by our Director of Dining Services, Chef David Merrill, former executive chef for the upscale Basin Harbor Club for 19 years. Having enjoyed an extensive culinary career prior to that, he brings over 40 years of experience spanning the east coast from Maine to Florida, providing fine dining in resorts, hotels and clubs.
As a charter member of The Vermont Fresh Network, Chef Merrill is inspired by local foods and fresh flavors and driven by the desire to provide guests with the very best quality and nutrition for the most satisfying dining experience.
Every day sees the professional kitchen staff, with over 150 combined years of experience, preparing and cooking the foods that will be showcased on that day’s menu, using only fresh, raw ingredients, following Chef Merrill’s lead in the quest for the very best.
