Weekend Cooking Class Itinerary

Day 1 | Friday

Check into the Inn. There is no formal event scheduled so we recommend that you add our in-room Champagne & Chocolates or Wine & Chocolates special and spend the afternoon settling into the Inn or relaxing on our West Porch!

Day 2 | Saturday

Start your day with our delicious breakfast to fuel you for your class. Your hands-on cooking experience will be fun and provide valuable skills you can take home with you. And you’ll, of course, get to taste your masterpiece yourself with a rewarding lunch following the class. After lunch, you have some free time to explore Mercersburg before cocktails in the Tile Room. Don’t worry, your 5-star epicurean experience doesn’t end there! Following cocktail hour, sit back and enjoy an exquisite 5-course French dinner with wine prepared by the Inn’s chef Dan Nowalk!

Day 3 | Sunday

Sunday will include another energizing breakfast, followed by your second cooking class featuring new recipes! After your picture-perfect lunch, you can check out if it’s your last day with us. Otherwise, the rest of the day is open so spend it relaxing on the property or exploring more of Mercersburg. Regardless of when you’re checking out, we recommend some exercise in the form of antiquing at Beaver Creek Antique Market.
