We hesitate to call our breakfasts gourmet, since that has become such a cliche among bed and breakfasts. But our meals are indulgences, a full and satisfying experience you'd normally expect at a nice restaurant.
Each meal begins with our private-roast coffee, tea, and juice, with fresh fruit and made-from-scratch muffins served family style. Then we bring you homemade bread, made that morning or the night before, along with an individual serving of the day's entree.
Our entrees range from fritattas, a sort of open-face Italian omelette, to baked apple French toast, omelettes, stuffed crepes, eggs Florentine, fancy pancakes, quiche and some inventions of our own.
We gladly adapt the entrees and muffins to accommodate special diets, including vegetarian breakfasts, vegan breakfasts and diabetic breakfasts. If the entree doesn't suit you, we always have cereal available.
When the weather permits, and that's most of the year, we serve breakfast on the back porch, where you can watch the sun rise over the Blue Ridge Mountains to the adoration of the birds and flowers.
Each evening we serve a variety of beverages with an appetizer to prepare you for dinner out. It's a great time to look over our collection of menus and share suggestions with other guests and your hosts about places to eat, sights to see and things to do.
If there is an overriding theme at Inn on Main Street, it would be to embrace the healthy basics while focusing on your comfort. We make all our foods from scratch, including our muffins and breads.
We avoid using cleaning chemicals, deodorizers, fertilizers and pesticides, choosing instead to clean with natural and biodegradable cleaners like vinegar, citrus oils and baking soda.
We've adopted the Green Hotels philosophy, which means we'll forgo changing towels and linens as often if that is your choice, thus saving water and reducing wastewater.
We cook with our own organically grown herbs and vegetables whenever possible, and buy from local organic farmers when we can.
Our home is smoke-free, though we keep ash trays on the porch to accommodate smokers.
In consideration to guests who are sensitive to allergens, we do not accept pets. We do not even use potpourri. We will remove down pillows from your room on request.
