Ranch style breakfast with coffee and orange juice

Breakfast At Wilson Ranches Retreat

As you enter the kitchen, you will see your hosts working to give you the experience of enjoying a ranch breakfast with all the trimmings. Each morning, the Wilson Ranches family joins their guests at the one-of-a-kind dining room table that Phil Wilson crafted from local lumber milled at the Kinzua Pine Mill in the 1930s.

Breakfast Setting and Times

Breakfast with the Wilsons is about much more than just good food and nourishment, it is truly a unique dining experience. The Wilson Ranches family sits down with the guests and share about ranch life, local history, and the funny and serious sides of rural living. Whatever the topic at the breakfast table, expect the conversation to be intelligent, informed and often humorous. You are likely to have a large helping of fun and laughter with Phil’s stories!

  • Breakfast is served family-style daily at 8:00 am (one seating only)
  • Coffee and tea are available at all times
  • Early breakfast available by special arrangement

What You Can Expect

The ranch breakfast changes daily and Phil calls it a “3 o’clock breakfast” because you don’t start looking for a place to graze until about 3:00 pm. We proudly serve locally sourced Apricot Apiaries honey, Sisters Coffee Co. Black Butte Gold coffee, and Stash mint tea grown in the Pacific Northwest.
