As Fresh as It Gets
Furthering our farm-to-table philosophy beyond daily dining, residents are free to pick corn from the farmer’s field adjacent to our own backyard. Plus, as part of our popular Cooking with Bernie program, residents frequent local orchards and farms to pick fresh fruits and vegetables. Their harvest is brought back to our community where they help prepare savory dishes, pies and desserts to enjoy at home.
Main Dining Room
A beautiful, vaulted wood-beamed ceiling with skylights. Expansive windows to frame majestic mountain views. The main dining room is as inviting to the eye as it is pleasing to the palate. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, enjoy satisfying made-to-order full-course entrées, chef’s specials and resident favorites, including grilled salmon, steaks, locally sourced fruits and vegetables, and homemade soups and desserts. Wine and beer are available upon request.
The Exhibition Kitchen featured in our Main Dining venue lets you watch our culinary team in action. You’ll be dazzled and enticed as they showcase their expert cooking skills. You may even pick up a great tip or two along the way!
With its open design and comfortable seating, The Village Café is an ideal place to share a specialty coffee with friends, enjoy a casual bite or relax with a good book. Fresh-made subs and sandwiches, pizza and salads, homemade soups, shakes and refreshing drinks, house-made muffins, pastries, and more are all here to enjoy. Wi-Fi with docking stations and tablets are also available. The Village Café is open to all residents from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Sometimes dining is best enjoyed in the great outdoors. We offer a cozy patio right off our main dining venue that offers comfortable seating, tableside service and our full dining menu — all with the added benefit of fresh mountain air and panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Grab and Go
When you need something on the run or are just craving a tasty snack, we offer a large variety of fresh grab-and-go options at The Village Café. Grab a Caesar salad, a fresh-made sandwich, soup, a homemade muffin, a refreshing beverage and more. Sundry items like ice cream, candy, cheese and chips are also available.
