Breakfast at Rookwood 

Awaken each morning to our renowned breakfasts. We offer a full, buffet-style breakfast with one hot entrée, selected by the chef daily. Breakfast entrées alternate between a sweet and a savory dish. At all times, we pay close attention to cooking heart-healthy entrees that do not sacrifice taste.


We are sensitive to the growing special dietary needs of our guests and are happy to meet specific dietary restrictions and allergies. As the innkeeper says, “we specialize in special diets.”


Our Ideal Location
