Arriving later in the evening, or just want to stay in and enjoy a movie, lounge on the patio or relax by the fire?  Add one of our cheese board or charcuterie packages and make the evening an uncomplicated one!  If you're headed out for a hike, day at the beach or to make the trip home and don't want to think about lunch or snacks, we also package these 'to-go'.  Each package features local cheeses, jams and spreads.

  • Cheese Board ($70) - Includes assorted cheeses, crackers, spreads, seasonal fresh fruit and a bottle of sparkling cider.
  • Charcuterie Package ($125) - Includes an assortment of cheeses, cured meats, spreads, crackers, bread, fresh seasonal fruit, chocolates and a complimentary bottle of wine from Pere Marquette Winery - a local winery located on the Buttersville Peninsula here in Mason County.
