Lunch was a fixed price of $28 including dessert and soft drinks - pricey but not too bad for a place like this. There was only one other couple in the dining room and our waitress was bubbly and efficient. The menu was interesting but included basics like "design your own sandwiches", a burger and some salads. There was also a chili that was described as "famous" and a squab dish with lentils and vegetable slaw. Ginnie was conservative and ordered a sandwich and I had the chili and squab, bth of which were delicious.
The waitress brought us the bill and didn't offer dessert, and being that it was a fixed price menu and I kind of wanted my money's worth, I asked about them. She said there was a chocolate and raspberry cheesecake and we agreed to have one. It was good, but enrobed in white chocolate so hard that it made it difficult to cut and eat. However, overall the meal was very good and the property is delightful. They are having a vintners event this coming weekend with Chateau Montelena wines. We held a winemakers dinner at Riverbend last year and the winemaker, Beau Barrett (the star of the movie Bottle Shock) came. I asked if beau was coming, and he isn't. Although I am sure it will be a great weekend regardless, I felt a touch of pride knowing that we managed to persuade him to attend and they didn't ;)
The rest of the afternoon was just relaxing at the cabin, catching up on blogs and LinkedIn networking, applying for a couple of jobs online, planning the next few days (and our planning for the house move and sale) and drinking wine.
We will leave this cabin reluctantly, but Yellowstone awaits, where apparently it is snowing and in the 30s!!
