Owner Naina is known for her culinary skills and hosting acumen. Working with Liz Garza, Chef de Cuisine, Naina plans globally-inspired menus and creates gatherings and events to entertain guests.
A full breakfast is served every morning from 8:30 am to 9:30am in Julian’s Hall. Family-style dinners with Anand and Naina, to which all guests are invited at no extra charge (with a 2-night stay), are served on Mondays and Thursdays at 6 pm. There is an extra charge for dinner if you are staying just one night on a Monday. Dietary restrictions and allergies will be requested of you prior to arrival so the kitchen can be ready to ensure a great dining experience.

A impressive, locally built steel fireplace welcomes you into Julian’s Hall, the dining room where breakfast and the bi-weekly family-style dinners are served. The ceiling soars 30 ft above where four old-style belt driven fans hang. The walls are adorned with pictures from our travels around the world. Large windows face East towards the Blue Mountains and Pushpa’s Pond. The tables are all live-edge walnut, harvested from close by and finished by a local craftsman. A closet on the far end contains board games and books. 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 by Chef Liz Garza, a graduate of the Walla Walla Community College culinary program.
Weather permitting, breakfast can be enjoyed ‘al fresco’ in Sushila’s Courtyard.
