The Riverbend Inn is a bed & breakfast located in the woods of Chocoria, NH. I became acquainted with the Riverbend through the White Mountains Annual Inn to Inn Cookie Tour.
When Craig Cox and Jerry Weiss took over the inn, they stripped the interior and spent months renovating. They decorated with their own personal furniture and art collected while traveling through Europe and Asia. The result is a warm and inviting look that has earned the inn awards like Best Interior Design and Decor from Inn Traveler magazine.
There's ten rooms at the Ellis Inn. Each room is different, uniquely decorated. One thing that all the rooms share are amenities like cable tv, air conditioning, hair dryers and comfy terrycloth robes.
The inn is well-known for their breakfasts. Dishes like Apple Coffee Cake, Blueberry Pancakes and Yogurt Parfait are some of the favorites served to guests in the morning. Below, the owner share their recipe for Yogurt Parfait.
Riverbend Inn's Fresh Yogurt Parfaits
1 cup chopped strawberries
1 cup fresh blueberries, raspberries or blackberries (or any combination)
Place heaping teaspoon of strawberries and teaspoon of blueberries in a parfait glass. Put a teaspoon or two of yogurt on top, then sprinkle with cinnamon and drizzle with Maple Syrup. Sprinkle granola on top. Add another layer of berries, yogurt, cinnamon, maple syrup and granola. Place parfaits in refrigerator for about 30 minutes before serving. Makes 4 servings.
Craig and Jerry took over the inn in 2002. They moved to New Hampshire from Los Angeles to fulfill a dream - a dream of running a bed and breakfast and spoiling guests. People who stay at the Riverbend are happy that they followed their dream.
