About ChildrenSimply put, we are fanatical supporters of kids and young families. There is plenty to do, and "The Coffee Dragons" acts as Kids Central. Parents with young children often camp together in The High Meadow and share the fun and chaos. You will find staff very supportive of parents during those "little emergencies" that are a part of parenting. Just ask! About FoodWe take food seriously at our kitchen, "The Starvin' Artist." We use meat from our pastures, produce from our gardens and neighboring farms whenever possible. Our meal plans must be preregistered, so we can plan this kind of local provender. We serve Brunch and Dinner, all you can eat; but plan on bringing your own snackables for mid-day. Our "Coffee Dragons" hospitality pavilion serves free coffee, tea and hot chocolate. Each evening features social time, with a open-to-all sideboard provided by "The Starvin' Artist."
