We believe that our guests should receive the very best foods that are available in season. We are pleased to serve locally produced foods grown in Kentucky. For example, we obtain our fresh eggs (1-2 days old) from a local farmer (1.6 mile away) that produces a variety of eggs from free range chickens. The shells are harder to crack and the yokes have an orange center. (Did you know that eggs from a supermarket are from 10-14 days old when you buy them?)

Each week we shop for the freshest, best tasting, organic foods available at the Berea Farmers' market or other certified locations. Depending upon the guest's menu selection, we might snip fresh herbs from our diverse garden just before we plate-up the meal. 

Our Kitchen 


Welcome to the kitchen at the Pinnacle View Inn, where we prepare food from treasured recipes and provide tips on sustainable cooking. You may explore our Kentucky Bed and Breakfast's community's recipes and add your own! Please see our specific recipes in another section of this site.

The kitchen is an open design using "day-lighting" a to enhance the views of outdoors. The design of double corner windows allows a vision of birds and wildlife. In the dining room the double opening design with even larger windows brings the outdoors inside.

Guests can see their food being prepared and may engage the chef. The idea is that when you can observe and talk about what you enjoy eating, and know where the food comes from, guests understand about "sustainable cooking" and value the shared experience.

Your Own Personal Chef


The "good life" (for many of our guests) means receiving the individual consideration necessary to make excellent personal food choices (which is then prepared by someone else)! And that is what we desire to do...

We are different from many bed & breakfasts because of our highly personal food service. Staying at the Inn is very much like having the attention of a "Personal Chef," where the food is arranged and custom-made for each guest according to what they wish to eat. We negotiate with each guest both the time, and the detailed menu so that guests may feel "special and cared for", as well as nourished and "at home".

We interview each guest to determine their food preferences and then agree on a time to serve them. While some guests prefer sweet dishes, others desire savory meals. Some visitors want vegetarian, or gluten free, or fat free or sugar free products. We can accommodate most dietary restrictions – just let us know at the time you make your selection.

Although sometimes it gets complicated for us when we serve 8 guests simultaneously, we still try to serve all our guests to the very best of our abilities, and we are passionate about the challenge!
