The Glen House Resort is the Inn complex a bad drive away from Smuggler’s Glen’s first hole. Or, in my case, hole #3, #5, #6, #8, #11, #12, #14 and #15. It is set right on the riverfront, near Gananoque, and is offering a beautiful and peaceful setting for the guests.
We stopped there before the final and decisive round, with me trailing badly in the 6th position.
The deluxe breakfast consist of 6 stations:
- A juice station, with nondescript apple and orange juice.
- A continental station, including commercial cereals, yogurt, a fresh fruit salad consisting mostly of melons, and muffins.
- A toast station, where you can toast your own bread or english muffins to your taste.
- A waffle station, where Wendy was making fresh waffles to order, and invited patrons to top them with a choice of fresh blueberries, strawberries, bananas, whipped cream or maple syrup.
- An egg station, where Sandy was making eggs to the patrons’ liking. Most folks would go for the omelette, choosing their own fixtures by filing a little cup with green and red peppers, onions, mushrooms and ham. These items are then fried before the two eggs (or three if you want to annoy the other patrons and make them wait a little more) are added and cooked to perfection, with a lot of cheese added and melted in the flipped-then-folded omelette.
- A side station, where juicy breakfast pork sausages, crispy but very salty bacon, and big home fries – nicely golden but a little heavy on the garlic for morning potatoes.
It was the perfect breakfast, hearty and filing, to set you up for a great round of golf. If you can golf, that is. Which I obviously can’t, since I ended up 7th out of 8.
