Amazing! Beyond Expectation!
The food at this little inn is absolutely spectacular! I came on two occasions, once for lunch with my boyfriend and once again with my mother for a nights stay. The first time I went was in the winter during their off-season. The dining room was empty, but that just added to the ambiance. We started with a roasted beet salad which was spectacular. I had the lobster grilled cheese sandwich (which I'm still dreaming about!!) and my boyfriend had the gnocci, which was equally delicious. Our server was very friendly, and, while pricey for students like us, it was definitely worth it. We did have a coupon that eased our price a bit, but I would pay full price for quality like that! The second time I visited Keefer Mansion was for a night's stay coupon, which included a 3 course dinner for two, a luxury suite and continental breakfast. Dinner was absolutely delicious! We started with a salad and spare rib ravioli, to die for!! I had the roasted capon with wild mushroom risotto, and my mother had the beef tenderloin. Both were cooked to perfection and had amazing flavour. The dessert course was a lemon curd tart and a white chocolate cheesecake, beautiful way to end the meal. We were in the best room of the inn, and it was delightful. The best par of the stay I have to admit was the 'continental breakfast.' Maybe I just haven't been to the right places, but my perspective of a continental breakfast is a few stale bagels and some cereal. Keefer Mansion's 'continental breakfast' is served to you!! It included a goat cheese and leek quiche, a yogurt berry and granola parfait and a few croissants as well as the option of cereal. This came with the stay !! It was beautiful. So delicious. I was not expecting a warm delicious breakfast, that's for sure. Overall, what a great experience. Can't wait to go back and try it again !!
