Here is where we are at, the short version (as of September 22, 2016)
The Algerians were great, great fun and a very good time was had by all last night. (I asked the lead speaker where he learned his English and he said, “Watching the Cartoon Network in Algeria when I was very small.” Everyone should try and throw a big Algerian House Party at least once a year!
Right now we are in the middle-times, going forward.
Chef Paul has gone to seek his fortune, we wish him well and we are talking to ourselves, talking to chefs, talking to cooks, talking to each other and figuring out in a mindful manner what we are going to do next. Nothing rash, nothing scary, all good.
For right now,
we are serving
Breakfast and Lunch every single day, just like usual.
For now we are serving dinner
Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays only.
It’s what’s working well for us right now and we praise Cam Carantit and David Flaxman to the skies for stepping up to the plate and swinging home runs. Thank you, you guys!
I will tell you as we go where we’re going – this is restaurant-owning in a tiny town in Real Time! Thank you all for your friendship and carrying on with us!

Inn at Norton Hill – Bed and Breakfast
Why just come for breakfast (and have to get up early to do so) when you can just stay at our Inn? It’s a beautiful place with three interesting and comfortable rooms and it’s right across the street! You, too can live in the 19th century (or further back) without having to actually move here! Follow this link and go to the website and then call us. Nightly rates include full breakfast Elmer’s!
Ashfield is at the corner of Routes 112 and 116, up the mountain from Greenfield.
From Greenfield take Route 2 west out towards Shelburne Falls. Just past SF, take 112 all the way up the mountain until you get to 116. Then turn left.
From Northampton, take Route 9 to Goshen, go right on 112 to 116 – right on 116.
