  • The Restaurant will close on January 2 and re-open for service on January 20, 2022.  

This gives my phenomenal staff the opportunity to enjoy a short vacation.

January - the month of new beginnings!  The days are getting longer and I personally get so excited with this anticipation. We have continued to experience many blessings in 2021 because of you and your continued support of our restaurant.  We are very grateful and always embrace your kindness and support.  I continue to prune out the toxic and negative, look for the positive in every moment, breathe deeply and let go.  I try to accept unconditionally, listen intently, embrace life with passion, nurture and above all understand.  May 2022 bring you blessings way beyond your expectations.  A new year lets us look back with wisdom and look forward with hope.  I hope you stretch your wings and fly.

This weather is a tease.  I am definitely not complaining because I love the warmth, tolerate the cold and look forward to a new growing season.  Seed catalogues have arrived, some orders have been made and instead of sitting by the fire and plan, I have the windows open!

We have set the schedule for the Sunday Suppers.  It should be exciting, trying different cuisines from around the world and right here with Appalachian and our annual Feast in the Forest.

I personally thank you for the opportunity that you have given me.  Meeting and speaking with you throughout the years lifts me to heights I would never have believed that I could achieve.  I am honored and humbled that I have been able to live my dream.  Thank you for making this possible and for your continued support.

Our thanks to all the farmers, wineries, breweries and artisan produers who provide us with their outstanding products.  We appreciate the dedication and and the extraordinary job they do each and every day.

From our farm to your table, we offer you a rare experience with a breathtaking view and natural setting overlooking the Potomac River.  Each course presents inspiration for the seasons and harmony with the earth.  The chefs draw from what the region has to offer, crafting a progressive menu on what our farm and local farmers, foragers, artisan producers provide.  The elemental base of fresh ingredients serves as inspiration for our cuisine.  Regardless of the season, you will experience contemporary, local cuisine that excites the palate and nourishes the soul.®
