The Woman Behind Honey Hill Inn’s Delicious Breakfasts

Posted by: TOM WATSON

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!
