Note: Unless there are special needs, we serve the chosen meal to everyone. Please suggest items you and the others would like and we will try to select from your choices. Make comments as needed along side each item. Check as many as you like and we will do our best to please you.

In order to give you privacy, all ingredients for breakfast and lunch will be left for you to easily prepare and serve. The dinner meal will be done by our chef. He is generally on premise daily from 3 pm until dinner has been completed around 8 pm. Before leaving, he will set out all that is needed for the next day's breakfast and lunch. Some items will be in the fridge waiting for you.

If you have any last minute requests, please e-mail them to us so that we might try to find them in the local stores. (pilot555@aol.com)
