An extraordinary breakfast is included with your room each day and we recommend that you eat in the MacCallum House Restaurant or Café for dinner as well. A nationally recognized restaurant with a world-class chef, the MacCallum House Restaurant is not to be missed. Begin your evening with a glass of complimentary wine in the ocean view café and then proceed into the fire-lit dining rooms for a romantic dinner. Finish your evening with a nightcap and one of our divine desserts—perhaps a dish of outrageous house made ice cream or a cheesecake soufflé—and you will be ready for a restful night's sleep. 

If you are staying for several days there are other high quality dining options in the village and surrounding areas as well. We have listed a selection below:
