Brought a friend from Washington, DC to Baldpate for lunch. Was a great historic lunch, lots of hummingbirds, great white chili and broccoli-cheese soups - and cornbread. Wait staff friendly and good service. Lovely view.

They had an auction to sell the Baldpate Inn in October 2018: it looked deserted when we visited it at the end of March 2018. Whoever bought/buys this 100 year old structure and outbuildings has a challenge to update and renovate to code. It’s in...More

Our Soup and Salad Buffet is served daily for lunch or dinner. Although we do not offer traditional entrees, we are loved for our fresh salad buffet, homemade soups, breads, and pies. Not only locals, but travelers especially delight in the refreshing change and value that our Baldpate Soup & Salad Buffet offers.
