Spring at The Lazyjack Inn

Although we have been anticipating the seasons arrival for weeks now it is still hard to believe that it is upon us!

We are happy to have our hands in the gardens once more....fresh herbs and spinach from our own gardens at of the many small pleasures of our 'craft'!

The local farmers market is open for the season bringing the fabulous seasonal flavors of locally grown produce, meats and cheeses to our breakfast tableau.

It is always such a fantasic experience to begin the high season with the opportunity to see so many new faces at the Inn and to catch up with our many returning guests.

One of the real joys of keeping an Inn has always been our time getting to know the diverse group of folks that we are pleased to call 'our guests'. Over the past 16 years we have grown so many terrific friendships through our work.

We look forward to yet another incredible season at the Lazyjack Inn!

Happy Spring All!
