At Goldberry Woods, each flavor tells a story about Harbor Country. This sandy soil takes some coaxing and cajoling to produce sun-warmed juicy sweetness. Organic vegetables trace the journey from heirloom seed, to greenhouse, to mature plant on the farm. Orchard fruit blossom and ripen on branches a stone’s throw from your windows. Sweet snacks are expertly baked each day from family recipes, and wine features grape varieties picked down the lane. It’s a heady 360-degree culinary experience with a curtsy to the land, traditions and biodiversity that surround us. When you depart our Union Pier, MI B&B, you leave with your own, delicious story to tell.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! We aspire to inspire you with every bite of our farm-to-table breakfasts. We make everything from scratch and strive to use the freshest ingredients possible, many grown right on the premises and picked fresh that morning.
The fixed menu is posted the day before. Help yourself to unlimited coffee, juice and tea while we serve you a starter and main breakfast. We alternate between sweet and savory mornings, to satisfy all palates. A few sample breakfasts are listed below.
- (Spring) Yogurt Parfait with Rhubarb-Raspberry Compote, Lemon Curd and Homemade Granola
- Bacon, Asparagus and Jarlsburg Quiche
- Honeyberry Streusel Muffins
- (Fall) Steel Cut Oats Steeped in Apple Cider with Chia, Quinoa, Baked Apples and Sugared Walnuts
- Pumpkin Pancakes with Apple Cider Syrup
- Canadian Bacon Egg Cups with Farm Fresh Veggies
If you let us know at least 24 hours prior to check-in, we can happily accommodate any special dietary needs as creatively as possible. Breakfast will be served in our Dining Room at 9am and delivery to your room/cottage/camper can be arranged for a small fee.
Breakfast is not included for cottage/camper stays but can be added to your stay ($20/person) if breakfast is available and advanced notice is provided.
Breakfast is not typically provided for group rentals as we turn over the inn’s kitchen to the group for their meals. Each group rental is fully customized.
Wine & Charcuterie
Make your stay even more special by adding a bottle of local red wine, white wine or local champagne. You can even add mimosas to your breakfast order!
Better yet, you can order a charcuterie platter for any day of your stay. It is loaded with meats, cheeses, and lot of special homemade pickles, mustards, pepper jelly, and preserves from our farm. Our platter is abundant enough to possibly skip dinner out and stay in for the night!
Fresh Baked Goodies
A long day of kayaking, hiking or exploring Harbor Country can work up an appetite. At Goldberry Woods, savor delicious, fresh baked snacks in the afternoon.
