There is nothing like a bowl of homemade soup and pioneer-style cornbread to warm up you on a chilly winter evening. During your stay, be sure to ask for a plate of persimmon pudding. What’s a persimmon you might ask? We promise there’s nothing quite like it, but you’ll just have to try it out for yourself.
