Favorite Breakfast Entrees

scrambled eggs with biscuit and bacon and fresh salsa white poached egg on yellow grits with biscuit and sausage patties Here are two versions of breakfast entrees - one from a favorite long time guest and one from Laurel Shuffitt who is an assistant innkeeper here at Woodhaven. Mr. Kurrie "invented" the first version with the baked cheese grits and a poached egg and then Laurel added onions, tomatoes and more cheese to hers. The guests come up with some fantastic ideas and we are happy to add them to our menu choices. Recently we even tried scrambled tofu for a guest who is vegan!

poster for the titanic exhibit showing the three propellers The Louisville Science Center is now showing and exhibit on the Titanic. It runs through February 15 and includes some never before shown objects. The Science Center is located in a very interesting area of downtown Louisville. The buildings were built in the 1800s and were used as wharehouses. They backed up to the wharf where steamboats unloaded wares. Most also have cast iron fronts with fabulose designs. This is the one of the largest grouping of these buildings in the country.It is a great area to walk along and stop into galleries and restaurants. And just a block north you can walk along the river at Louisvile's waterfront park.

front porch with six inches of white snow on the chairs and railing front of main house with snow everywhere snow on the yard and with the cottage in the background covered in white snow and the green evergreen trees Louisville received 3 inches of snow yesterday and a blast of very cold temperatures from Canada. Well, it is January so I guess we should expect some of the white stuff! The front porch is definitely not the place to sit these days. It is so beautiful though...makes you want to get a good book and some hot tea or hot chocolate and sit in front of a fire after you take a walk. You can do that here so check out our rooms and the low season rates on line.
