Salad had an excellent dressing on it and was fresh and crispy. Rolls fresh and warm but average. Game hen with broccoli and potatoes was average... under seasoned. The lemon blueberry cake and cream was... More

Do not miss breakfast or dinner. The chef is awesome and she has a very delightful and enjoyable menu every night. Fresh herbs, well seasoned to bring out flavors. Take the picnic lunch basket onto the grounds and enjoy what you see.

Priced higher than I normally pay for a meal, but the intimate setting and deliciously prepared food made it nice to celebrate a special occasion.

Celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary with dinner at the Mountain View Restaurant while staying at Christopher Place. Everything was delicious and the presentation was gorgeous. All of the courses were served at the perfect time. We didn't feel rushed between courses. Excellent!
