At Absolute Charm we strive to provide a lovely breakfast to each of our guests. While many cottages in town have gone to a "no breakfast" or "coffee and tea service only" policy, we believe part of running a bed and breakfast of any size includes providing some type of breakfast. Whether a particular property offers a full sit-down affair, a continental spread, or a certificate to a well-loved local eatery, you can be assured the owners have made this choice with your comfort and convenience in mind. Some guests insist that a full breakfast in a traditional setting visiting with other guests is the way to go, whereas others prefer the privacy afforded by gift certificates or continental breakfasts. Please read EACH individual property's detailed listing page carefully to see what type of breakfast that particular property offers, and then you will be able to choose the property that is right for you!
Traditional B&Bs usually offer a big sit-down breakfast each morning in a lovely dining room. For example, at the Inn on the Creek, a lavish breakfast is served at 8:30 each morning. Typical fare at the Inn on the Creek’s daily breakfast table would include biscuits and bacon, homemade breakfast cake, bacon and green chili quiche, and fresh fruit with a delectable creme fraiche topping. Currently, our properties which do provide this wonderful service are: Inn on the Creek and Queen Anne B&B and Spa.
Some of our properties serve a continental breakfast which is typically left in your suite prior to your arrival. You will usually find items such as pastries, fruit and juice provided, though each owner's idea of continental breakfast will vary. Many guests enjoy the privacy afforded by finding the goodies in their room on arrival. No matter which breakfast best suits your style, you can certainly look forward to a lovely start to your morning!
If you book one of our many gift certificate properties, you will receive a certificate for each morning's breakfast. Breakfast Vouchers are accepted for Lunch and Dinner as well. If an Absolute Charm breakfast certificate is provided, it is good for $7.00 per person (other services usually only give $5.00) per day at any of our affiliated restaurants listed below. Please be aware that your certificate may or may not cover the full amount of your meal. This will depend on the selections you make. We offer a nice variety of restaurants that provide something for all tastes! (Please be aware that hours of operation, etc. can change without our knowledge. When in doubt, please call the restaurant to verify times.) Also, please note that if a property is listed as giving a certificate to a certain restaurant, their exact terms (as far as restaurants and dollar amounts) will vary. The restaurants currently offered through the Absolute Charm breakfast gift certificate program are as follows:
This unusual, upscale restaurant is located in the basement of the historic hospital building on Main St. The atmosphere is charming and the food is excellent.
