At three o'clock each afternoon, guests are invited to enjoy tea with a fresh baked treat from the kitchen such as chocolate chip cookies, poppy seed lemon cake, or old-fashioned brownies. In the evenings from 5-6:30pm, complimentary wine and cheese are available on the relaxing patio under the trees, or in the dining room with its one of a kind hand painted stamped tin ceiling.
