Breakfast at the Inn
Richard and Nancy Woodworth of Inn Spots & Special Places say our breakfast is a culinary event! It is served each morning between 8 and 9:30 a.m. in our sun-filled dining room. Fresh fruit, assorted juices, and freshly baked sweet breads accompany a choice of cooked-to-order entrees or homemade granola. Blueberry pancakes, waffles with strawberries, brie and roasted red pepper omelets, and amaretto french toast are favorites among guests. Local ingredients, including organic Maine maple syrup, are featured, as well as organic coffee from Maine roasted coffee beans. We even offer eggs fresh from the inns flock (aracauna chickens who live about a mile from the inn). With all our offerings, food allergies and restrictions are easily accommodated. We are also able to prepare breakfast to go if your schedule necessitates an early departure.
Homemade treats and hot and cold beverages are available in the parlor every day. Fresh baked cookies, chocolate-covered toffee, decadent cakes–one never knows what will emerge from the kitchen each afternoon. Fresh fruit, often local apples, is offered as well.
Hors d’oeuvres are served in the living room or in the garden from 6 to 7 p.m. each evening. Selections highlight Maine seafood, local and imported cheeses, and locally prepared salsas and chutneys. Wine, local beers, and a full line of fine liquors are available.
Blue Hill village and the surrounding areas are dotted with excellent restaurants for lunches and dinners. For fine dining, we especially recommend the Arborvine, just a block from the inn. Advance reservations are often necessary, and we are happy to make them for you. The Fish Net is the choice for the best lobster roll around and the Boatyard Grill offers seasonal waterfront dining. Check with us for other recommendations for casual fare or fine dining on the Blue Hill Peninsula.
After handing out and sending along so many recipes to our guests, we’ve created an online cookbook with delicious recipes from your home-away-from-home.
