Bed and breakfasts are unique compared to regular hotels. At The River Nest B&B you get some terrific amenities, private bath, walk-in shower, separate bedroom with queen bed, sitting room with jacuzzi, in wall fireplace between the bedroom and sitting room and a private deck. But a great part of B&B’s usually is THE BREAKFAST!! I will admit I have been to B&B’s that did a poor job of breakfast. Some were just POOR and blase’. One we had to beg for something besides cold cereal (They had eggs etc, but you had to ask and the help really did not want to be bothered.), and once we got a voucher to go next door to a coffee shop. Are you kidding me???? Not at The River Nest B&B!
Mrs. Dunn takes pride in her breakfasts, and makes them special. (Everything is made right here in our kitchen from scratch.) You will get treats (caramel rolls, scones, or muffins) in your suite with coffee (or breakfast beverage of choice) an hour before the real breakfast—nice way to wake up and get ready for the day. After the hour, you come out to the main dining area and have BREAKFAST. Always a fruit dish which varies depending on season (Have you ever had a poached pear?? They are wonderful.). Next you get the main entree which will be an egg bake of some kind. Quiche, Mexican egg bake, sausage bake (which is served with Dr. Dunn’s fantastic applesauce pancakes)— or one other alternative is Creme Brulee French toast (This comes with a side egg cooked to your liking, and sausage links.). Mrs. Dunn has a special recipe for orange-cinnamon bread that she uses in this one. When is the last time you had fresh, warm, home made buns? Always you have coffee, juice, water and milk with your breakfast. Our coffee is a special roast we get from Gloria Jean’s called “Mudslide“. Our guests generally really like it.——
——AND—drum-roll—–you will get dessert!!! We serve heart-shaped chocolate cake with chocolate frosting (birthdays and anniversaries get candles and singing), apple crisp, hot milk cake with fresh strawberries or raspberries (in season) or crepes. Occasionally you get your own pie!
Not only do you get fed very well, we can cater to special dietary needs. When you call to reserve a suite, we will ask about any dietary restrictions. Mrs. Dunn can do vegetarian, sugar free, and gluten free. She has even had request for dairy free and MSG free (Those are not easy, but doable.). How easy is it to get this kind of special treatment at other bed and breakfasts or or even at restaurants???
