Many of our guests wish to enjoy meals here in the Canyon. We enjoy being a very small, exclusive and
quiet business and do not have a "restaurant license”. Our B&B permit only allows us to cook breakfasts. Due to frequent requests from those guests who prefer not to travel to a restaurant, or take up valuable vacation time with grocery shopping we have a provisioning service. We will be very happy to provision you for some memorable, easy meals that you can enjoy either in the comfort of your accommodations or in the majesty of nature extraordinaire. You arrive to a fully stocked pantry and refrigerator with no further cares.

As we are a remote, wilderness destination, we normally maintain well stocked food supplies. We purchase high quality, wholesome, fresh and natural foods, using local specialties that nourish body, heart and soul. With sufficient advance notice we are able to provide all ingredients for a wide variety of entrees. Please let us know if you have any special dietary needs or concerns.

Retreat / Hermitage

We are happy to support secluded retreats (meditation, creative, stress-relief, bereavement, etc) with an
extended stay. Daily delivery of fresh foods (with little or no direct contact, as you choose) can be
pre-arranged, accommodating a variety of dietary needs and preferences. Daily deliveries would include a hot breakfast, fresh baked goods and produce, other meals ready to eat or requiring minimal preparation and all beverages as required.
