Spring Lake Inn – NJ Vegetarian Getaway

December 3rd, 2008 · No Comments

You have to think outside a box to get visitors to your New Jersey inn during the heart of winter, right?

Spring Lake Inn - summertime

Spring Lake Inn - summertime

Owners of the Spring Lake Inn, a bed and breakfast in Spring Lake, N.J., have come up with hands-on vegetarian cooking classes for their guests, freeĀ if you stay two weeknights during January through March. The classes are small — six allowed, including children -and you get to keep your apron, eat your food, and take home the recipes.

Classes are taught by innkeeper Donna Ferris and include dishes such as the Sun-dried tomatoes strata with cheddar cheese, or the Cheese blintzes with berry jam. For kids, there’s the Baked cheesy pizza omelet or PB&J French toast sticks.

The inn is from 1888 and was a horse stable back in the day, now repurposed as a 16-room inn; it’s only a block away from the ocean and a stroll down to the lake. (I like the idea of the Turret room with ocean views.

Go on — be different. Do a winter getaway in the northeast when the crowds are gone! More info: Spring Lake Inn, www.springlakeinn.com; or phone 732-449-2010.
