Tom’s kitchen begins with fresh, whole foods, and then design dishes and menus that incorporate their natural flavors. In contrast to much of modern cooking, we don’t hide poor quality ingredients under the masks of heavy sauces, artificial flavors and added sugars.

Even when cooking for a large group, Executive Chef Tom Oates ensures that each individual’s meal is delicious and delightful. Guest House menus are creative and imaginative and our meals are always healthy and satisfying. Every meal offers variety, and vegetarian options are available by request. For an additional charge, we can accommodate groups who prefer entirely vegetarian meals.

Since Tom works to obtain the highest quality meat and produce available, his kitchen staff knows that clean, simple preparations will yield gourmet results. We also believe that the health of our bodies and the environment is always connected. All coffee is UTZ Certified. All salad dressings are made from scratch.
