Culinary adventure is a large part of The 1861 Inn experience.  Your innkeeper is a culinary arts program graduate and delights in planning, preparing and serving guests a personalized, 4-course, private candlelight dinner. Dinner is the couples’ single entrée selection, choosing from beef, seasonal seafood, local poultry, or vegetarian dishes.

Salads might be pasta, potato, fruit or vegetable.
