When you stay at Blantyre, you can have breakfast in the Main House’s breakfront room or stay in your pajamas and have it served to you in your room. A full breakfast is included in your room rate at this Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel, so take advantage of the morning meal. Choose among light dishes, like fresh berries and yogurt, or heavier ones like whole-wheat pancakes with lemon-poppy-seed butter, maple syrup and berry compote. The mushroom ragout and Vermont cheddar cheese omelet is one of the luxury hotel’s most popular dishes though the freshly made blueberry muffins are our favorite pick. All breakfasts come with a fruit bowl, a basket of baked breads and pastries. If you aren’t a breakfast person, at least partake in the freshly squeezed juices and perfectly brewed coffee.
Breakfast at Blantyre is served in the conservatory, just off of the dining room in the Main House. The conservatory has windows on all sides, where early morning sunlight displays the beautifully manicured grounds surrounding the building. In the winter, it can look almost like a snow-globe with winds swirling around the outside, but don’t worry — the hot chocolate will keep you safe and warm. The conservatory is also the best vantage point for spotting our resident wild turkeys and many furry critters that call the 117 acres of Blantyre home. Full breakfast is included in the room rate at Blantyre, and may also be enjoyed through room service.
