An impressive, locally built steel fireplace welcomes you into Julian’s Hall, the dining room where daily breakfast and the complimentary Thursday dinner are served. The ceiling soars 30 feet above, where four old-style belt-driven fans rotate. The walls are adorned with pictures from our travels around the world. Large windows face East towards the Blue Mountains and our pond and to the North to the courtyard. The tables are all local live-edge black walnut, and finished by a local craftsman. A closet on the far end contains board games, books and equipment if you bring back take-out food. The lighting is warm and inviting. A carved mango-wood door from Bali, converted into a barn door, separates the dining room from Ruby’s Kitchen, where delicious meals are prepared for you.
