Dining at Back Inn Time

Dinner is served by Reservation Only. Let our chef prepare you a decadent meal served in either the formal dining room, the café area, or on the balmy deck overlooking the gardens. Due to popular demand, beginning in April we will again feature "Music & More" nights in our Carriage Barn. Fantastic musicians and terrific foods prepared with local and organic ingredients, freshly, on-site. Be sure to inquire when making your reservation.

NEW! Now you can order our most popular salad dressings and pestos online and have them shipped to your door.


We have catering packages to fit any budget. Whether you’re interested in a cocktail hour event, brunch, an afternoon tea, or sit down meal for any occasion, we will customize your menu selections and personally assist you in hosting a splendid event.

Great food, really interesting space, comfortable beds!—I was in town for a meeting and picked this place a bit randomly. It turned out to be awesome! The beds were so comfortable, the building is really interesting and a nice oasis, and the breakfast was outstanding. KarenMarie uses fresh local ingredients that are top quality and she is a fabulous cook. I would definitely stay here again.
