Go for lunch. I had a great grilled sweet potato and cream cheese sandwich. There is also a campground, a fascinating museum with a working grist mill.

We stopped to have a look they were closed but at least got to see outside. I am sure it's a busy place in the summer

Simple menu of made-to-order sandwiches with great soup or salad. Griiled cheese, tomato and onion sandwich accompanied by a hearty beef barley soup (generous on the beef) was a memorable lunch. Wonderful historical garden setting with mill to tour. Lots of local goods -- bought...More
