Breakfast was a mesmerizing feast served up by the Inn's chef, which included a mix of fresh kiwi, pineapple, tangerine, apple, and strawberries in cantaloupe, with muffins, coffee, and orange juice. This was followed by a spinach frittata with hollandaise sauce, freshly made biscuits, Canadian bacon, orange slices, and cinnamon apple crepes.

Everyone needs to be pampered, and the Sanford Spa and Salon provides complete massage, hair, and facial services just across the street. After your spa treatment, relax with a glass of wine, by a tranquil wall waterfall and above fluffy clouds decorating the recessed ceiling.
