Candlelight and soft music greet 1897 Beekman House’s guests as they come down the grand staircase for breakfast.
Fresh-brewed coffee, tea, and hot chocolate are available for early risers.
Chef Chuck’s three course gourmet breakfast menus vary daily, beginning with a fresh baked pastry course followed by a mouth watering fruit course and an entrée that will delight your eyes and excite your palate.
**An important note to our VEGAN friends – Chef Chuck says: “I am formally trained in French culinary techniques. It has been said that there are three main ingredients in any respectable French recipe: 1. CREAM; 2. BUTTER; and 3. MORE CREAM! Running in a close 4th place would be EGGS. My suggestion to our vegan friends is to consider a stay at another nearby bed and breakfast where the menu is 100% vegan! The Ginger Cat Bed and Breakfast is a mere 10 minutes to our south. Follow this link to their website: The Ginger Cat B&B “.
