We eat well here in the Keene Valley area!! Within just
a few minutes drive, you can enjoy a refreshing ice cream
cone on a hot summer day, a burger and beer after a long
hike or an elegant dinner for your birthday or anniversary.
On summer Sundays, you'll want to visit the incredible
Keene Farmer's Market located at Marcy Field for
local produce, maple syrup, soap, coffee, artwork and more.

LOCAL DINING OPTIONS
Snow Goose Bed & Breakfast
Awaken to the smells of home-baked muffins and freshly ground coffee. Each dish is freshly prepared using all-natural and many organic ingredients. (Don't let the "organic" part scare you. You won't find any tofu or seaweed here - just delicious healthy REAL food.)
We are committed to purchasing locally so you will get a taste of Keene Valley's farms and maple sugar producers as well as fresh produce and herbs from our farm share with Fledging Crow Farms. Most of the egg dishes we serve are made with "just picked fresh" eggs from our own backyard flock of chickens.
On Saturday and Sunday mornings, guests enjoy a Full Breakfast which might include Fruit/Yogurt Parfaits, Spiced Pears, Apple Pecan Pancakes, Maple Glazed Sausage, Kale and Sun-dried Tomato Quiche or any of our other popular breakfast items.
(Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free dishes are available upon request.)
Monday through Friday, begin your day with our deluxe Continental Breakfast and coffee served at 8:30 a.m. Earlier (or later) breakfast times are available by request. If you are hitting the trail before the sun comes up, ask for our Bright & Early Packed Breakfast.
