‘Carolyn’s Kitchen’ What I am thinking about this week…
We are in the middle of the hottest days of summer, we need a refreshing and delicious way to cool off in Carolyn’s Kitchen!
@ the ‘nack & coffee bar
It started last year as we were brainstorming new treats for the ‘nack bar. We started making our homemade popsicles with fresh, local ingredients and testing the flavors on our friends at Balsam Farms. After all who better to test on then a group of farmers who have been in the hot sun out in the fields all day. Our paletas were a great success and this year our guests and “testers” alike have been asking for them (or rather demanding them!) Fruity, Savory, Creamy, Tart…we’ve hit all the flavors. Drop me a line and let me know if there is a flavor you would like to see us make!
Highlights on the coffee bar this week:
Try our seasonal paletas (homemade popsicles)

‘I have to say, that is one of the best breakfasts I have ever had.’
‘My brain is telling me to stop eating but my mouth can’t stop.’
‘You really pay a lot of attention to the details here. The cold bowls and the copper tray – it is all so beautiful. This is one of the best places I have stayed in the past 10 years.’
