There are a basically two options for meals while you are at the cottage:

Pot Luck

This is typically the most popular option when a group is gathering from a short distance.

You are welcome to prepare a meal at the house.  We suggest that you contact us ahead of time to make sure that you do or don’t need to bring certain cooking utensils.

Local Dining

A list of local dining options (and a few of their menus) will be available for you to review at the Craft Cottage.  Let us know if you would like any recommendations before you arrive.
