A Full Breakfast is served every day in the original Bed and Breakfast for those guests staying in the Garden Suite, Courtyard Cottage and Upstairs Suite. Those guests staying in Hattie's Half and the Master Suite next door at the Guesthouse have homemade breads, muffins or coffee cakes provided by Lynn for their Continental breakfast.
Delicious breakfasts are formally served on silver and china in the dining room of the main house at 8:30 every morning for all the guests of the B&B. This is a set time breakfast so that all the food is fresh and hot off the griddle and out of the oven. As often as possible, Lynn uses seasonal herbs and vegetables from their garden, fresh eggs from their chickens, and honey from their bees. Cut flowers from the gardens center the table. Between courses, guests browse their cookbook - a compilation of many of their breakfast and family recipes, and treasured by many guests.
Guests of the Guesthouse enjoy a continental breakfast at their leisure. Coffee, juice, cocoa and tea are available in those suites.
Breakfast at the B&B may consist of:
Fresh fruit cup with Gran Marnier sauce, Pumpkin-Date bread, Baked Apple Pancake, Parmesan Potato Gallette, and Opa's Smoked Country Sausage.
Baked Pears with Cream, Baked Ham and Eggs with Swiss cheese and mustard sauce, and Pan-fried Garlic New Potatoes.
Praline French toast, Greek eggs with Basil, Fresh Tomatoes and Feta cheese, and homemade Breakfast Sausage.
Complementary amenities in all the rooms include:
Signature blended Das Garten Haus coffee
Assortment of herbal teas
All the suites have small kitchenettes with refrigerators, microwaves, and coffee makers. Although cooking isn't allowed, guests will find ample dishes, glassware and silverware for snacking. There are hair dryers, irons, and ironing boards, Signature toiletires, cable TV and alarm clocks in all the rooms. Brochures and maps are provided in all suites. Current events and live music venue information is available as well. And if you've forgotten something, please ask Lynn and Kevin - they keep necessites for most situations.
In describing the garden, one of our recent guests most eloquently wrote about the ambiance at Das Garten Haus:
"I was very drawn to sitting in your garden, letting a lovely and full day wind down. Your cat returned and we sat together like two zen monks. Das Garten Haus is a rare retreat and greatly appreciated" June B. - May 2013
