Sip and Simmer Cabin/Cottage Dinner

Order your Prepped Dinner for a 3-night Iris Inn cabin or cottage stay. $159/couple when you enjoy a 3-night cabin or cottage stay!

You requested time off, arranged for coverage at work, and found the perfect babysitter and pet-sitter for your home. Now wouldn’t it be nice if you didn’t have to worry about dinner plans during your 3-night cabin/cottage getaway? You’re in luck! The Iris Inn Chef has shopped, chosen the perfect ingredients, made the sauces, paired each dish with a wine, and placed everything in your room–complete with chef hats, and wine glasses. All you have to do is follow one page of instructions to finish the meal.

Order a Sip & Simmer package, and the Iris Inn’s Chef will prepare a seasonal dinner where you add the finishing touches, pair with local wines, and enjoy right in the privacy of your own cabin or cottage. (The cabin/cottage dinner will be prepared for the second night following check-in with one of each of the main course offerings.)
