Sunny's Rooster Ramblings
I have heard the sound of birds at our feeders. Not just the chickadees and cardinals of winter but the sound of robins and a song bird I couldn't identify. They had better be hardy since the
weatherman thinks this will be a cooler than usual (read that cold) March with more snow in the offering.
March brings warm thought for us though as we will be celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary on March 2. And our first granddaughter will celebrate her 6th birthday on the 4th. Also on March 6th this year our oldest grandson will be leaving for boot camp, something that brings us both pride mixed with a tinge of sadness. On March 15 our number three son (Mark) will be marrying his sweetheart and currently it appears all four of our boys will be in attendance (first time all four will be in the same state at the same time in just about 17 years. This is one time when we hope business will be slow!
March 7-8 is the second annual Lewiston Cocktail festival. Last year was such a success they decided to do it again and already tickets are in high demand. Your $25.00 ticket purchase gets you a passport to enjoy visiting 12 establishments for variations on the "Absolut Lewiston Cocktail." Be sure to vote on your favorite! If you time it right you will run into a group of out Lewiston Arts Marble Orchard Players posing as Catherine Hustler and learn all about how the cocktail got it's name.

Relax all evening; Start the day with a full breakfast
We encourage you to take your first cup of coffee and sit on the porch swing before you tuck into our full breakfast. Unless, of course you have an early date to meet friends. Or maybe you have the first ride on the Jetboat and prefer to eat later. Simply let us know the night before the time and food you would prefer so we can make this YOUR vacation.
Over the years we have asked our guests for their breakfast preferences and discovered that healthy hearty breakfasts are much preferred over fancy gourmet fare. Everyone requests Sunny's Scones and she has whipped up a variety of flavors made with whole wheat, oat, multi-grain, or wheat-free (rice) flour. She'll add a bit of fruit or nuts then adds just a touch of decadence adding flavored honey butter to compliment the scone of the day.
With the hearty breakfast and family atmosphere at Sunny's Roost our large dining room allows you to practice a boarding house reach. We attempt to have a variety of local items on hand to help spark your breakfast appetite, so you can choose from the following list or ask if we can make something special. Here's just a sample of breakfast items Sunny enjoys serving:
- Orange cinnamon French toast served with orange honey butter and maple syrup
- Eggs of many persuasions including omelets with assorted fillings, fritatas, stratas, and baked eggs
- Add some meat to breakfast; sausages, bangers, breakfast steaks, pork chops or bacon - Canadian or regular
- Buttermilk, whole wheat, buckwheat, oat pancakes OR waffles!
- Most items can be made gluten free or vegan if enough notice is given
We want Sunny's Roost to the kind of place where you feel comfortable kicking off your shoes and putting your feet up on the furniture, coming down to breakfast in the comfortable bathrobes you find in the room, or inviting friends to join you on the roomy front porch.
What are you waiting for? We're looking forward to your visit Our home may be 100+ years old and within the Village of Lewiston's Historic District, but our welcome is ever in the present. The quiet, after concert evenings and our comfortable beds let you rest up for the next day's adventure.
