Food & Wine

Chef Paula prepares everything from scratch with primarily fresh local ingredients. Her gourmet breakfast entrees are creative with unique flavors and food combinations. She makes pork or turkey sausage patties with spices and fresh herbs. We serve award-winning maple syrup purchased from Fuller’s Sugarhouse in Lancaster, New Hampshire. With prior notice, most entrees can be modified for gluten-free (for those with Celiac Disease), vegan, diabetic, or vegetarian diets. One morning a savory breakfast entrée is served and the next morning a sweet breakfast is served. The savory morning breakfast starts with either a very light and tender scone, quick bread, or muffin and juices, including our special concoctions. Cereals, homemade granola, yogurt, fresh fruit, and toast and jam are also available if you prefer a lighter start to your day.

For the savory breakfasts, Chef Paula would prepare one of the following: Light, fluffy scrambled eggs with ham and fiesta blend cheese folded in —egg variations: sautéed sweet red peppers and Monterrey Jack cheese or sautéed spinach, mushrooms, and Gruyere cheese. Potato Cakes, Southwestern Potato Hash, or Sautéed Sweet Potatoes with Apples and Sage may also served in this entrée.

Strata with Sausage, Corn, Baby Kale and Monterrey Jack cheese and Roasted Red Bliss Potatoes with Rosemary

Business Travel & Events

"Plan your next small corporate meeting, retreat, or reunion at The Buttonwood Inn where your schedule is our schedule. For a successful meeting or social gathering, each group is given exclusive use of the Inn. You have total flexibility in planning your day. We’ve had great success with a small business retreat (up to 20 people) catering a group dinner in our spacious Dining Room, serving an early morning breakfast and mid-morning coffee and tea service with mini muffins and scones. We can also arrange a golf outing, train ride, hiking or shopping excursions, etc.

Every November, a women’s group books the inn for a weekend of shopping and merriment. In addition to breakfast and afternoon tea service with treats, we also make a group dinner reservation. After a day of shopping, we put out Holiday wrapping paper, ribbon, bows, etc. for gift wrapping. The Mt. Surprise Room is piped in with music for the annual Saturday night party where the women bring in drinks and appetizers and party until they drop.

If you reserve The Buttonwood Inn for your next business meeting or social gathering, you can use either, our L-shaped Living Room, large Dining Room, or the Mt. Surprise Room. During the warmer months, you can also enjoy the front porch and gardens during breaks.

A full country breakfast is included daily: fresh baked quick breads, scones or muffins, and a special entree that changes daily. Menus can be arranged for Lunch or Supper meals at the Inn; or, we will happily make reservations for your group at one of our wonderful local restaurants.
