Kemptville Country Breakfast

Begin your morning at The Old Shipman House with breakfast served in the dining room, or summer room.
Start with a selection of fruit juices: orange, Ruby Red, apple or cranberry.
Enjoy a plate of sliced fruit or a yogurt parfait. Follow that with toast or English muffins with Saskatoon Berry jelly' or Bagels and cream cheese. A selection of cereals will be available.

    I thought it may be of interest to you that your house must be my family's great great great grandfather's home. He settled there in 1821.
