Mary and Rob provide an extraordinary meal that includes vegetables and herbs freshly picked from their beautiful garden. Dinner began with fresh tomato bisque and then a mixed green salad with perfectly ripened peaches and a light vinaigrette dressing. The chicken wrapped in prosciutto and stuffed with brie was accompanied by perfectly prepared baby vegetables from the garden. Dessert included a choice of two sweet treats of homemade pastries that highlighted blueberries in season and a lemon cheesecake with chocolate to die for. The locals we met at dinner, who regularly dine here, were celebrating a family event and opined they hoped Amherst Shore Country Inn would remain a “local secret”… Shhhh! Don’t tell anyone that this was one of the most memorable meals we have ever had!
