Salem Cross Inn Fireplace Feast & Sleigh Ride

Salem Cross Inn
260 West Main Street (Route 9)
West Brookfield, MA (508) 867-2345

This unique event features dinner and a ride! The Fireplace Feast, a special dining event at the Salem Cross Inn, occurs weekends this winter. A series of 1700’s style feasts, prepared on the open hearth of a great fieldstone fireplace. Relax by the fire or lend a hand as dinner is prepared for you in colonial style. Stir the chowder as it bubbles in our cast iron cauldron. See your prime rib, roasted ‘to a turn,’ as the only known authentic Roasting Jack still operating in America rotates slowly over a crackling fire of wild cherry logs. Beware the brimming bowl of freshly whipped cream – the perfect complement to New England’s best apple pie.

While your dinner is cooking to perfection, enjoy a horse drawn wagon or sleigh ride through the valley on the Inn’s pristine 600 acres. Shake off the chill with warm mulled wine or cider upon your return and browse their extensive collection of colonial and federal period American antiques.
