Our on-site restaurant is not open for breakfast but we do offer fresh brewed coffee from our local Shop Bike Coffee Roasters in the lobby daily from 8-11am.

There are a few great breakfast restaurants within a couple minutes drive from The Ashwood.  We recommend Renegade's Diner and The Bayfield Berry Farm.
