September 1st, 2013 by Honey Hill


This the most requested menu item and recipe. Returning guests ask for Pecan Encrusted Bacon when they arrive. New guests read about it on and ask for it. So, here it is. Enjoy!

Step 1: Pre-heat oven to 400. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Set a cooling rack on top of the foil and arrange bacon slices on the rack.


Step 2: Coarsely chop pecans.


Step 3: Sprinkle brown sugar on each slice of bacon. Do not use too much sugar.

Step 4: Sprinkle chopped pecans on each slice.

August 24th, 2013 by Honey Hill

Gretchen Huffsmith, who is the chef at Honey Hill Inn and Cabins, brings over 25 years experience in the restaurant business to Honey Hill, starting as a cook and ending in upper management for large restaurant chains. Along the way, she has worked with a lot of talented people.


When our guests ask Gretchen if she went to culinary school, her reply is, “No… I went to the school of Hard Knocks!” What she doesn’t tell our guests is that, in addition to her years of experience, she holds a BA in Theatre from Emerson College and an MBA from Simmons College in Boston, MA.

Our menus and recipes are always evolving. Rather than publish a cookbook that is really just a snapshot in time, we have decided to publish some of our favorite breakfast and snack recipes here on our blog. We hope you enjoy them and continue to check back as we add more!
