“Gastro Heaven With A Pinch of History” – Southern Living Magazine

Fine Dining in VirginiaWe recently had the pleasure of hosting Find Everything Historic’s (Easton, MD) own Meggen and Peter Taylor!

During thier stay in December 2015, The Taylors got to sit down for a fantastic dinner with co-owner and InnKeeper of L’Auberge Provencale, Celeste Borel.

Laughter, stories of history of the inn, and a touch of raspberry spice filled the air from the aroma of a 2013 Pinot Noir, Talley Vineyards, Rincon.

Meggen Taylor described  “[t]he whole L’Auberge experience [as] a family affair, just as it should be at an inn of this caliber”

Renovations at L’Auberge Provencale – Virginia Wine Country Inn

 

French Country Inn

 

 

 

Lately, we’ve been getting a lot of questions on exactly what is going on at the Inn. Well, long story short we’re expanding because our guests love our food and service!

That being said, the current state of renovations is focused on the heart of our Inn: the kitchen.

 

 

 

Gourmet Restaurant in Virginia Wine Country

 

We’ve more than doubled the capacity of our walk-in refrigerator/freezer to hold more of the local produce we know you’ve grown to love and expect from our farm to table restaurant. Then, we’re introducing service stations for our front staff members to use that will enhance your dining experience in the restaurant. If you didn’t realize yet, our chefs need plenty of room! We’re also adding more work stations for our chefs to experiment and create culinary works of art. Most of all, we’re creating a beautiful environment for chefs and guests to collaborate! We want to show you where and how your food is crafted and once the renovation is complete, our doors will be open!

Be on the lookout for updates on our renovation. As we continue through this process, we’ll explain more about the next phase of our addition: the bar and lounge!

L’Auberge Provencale Teams with Tesla Motors

Tesla Motors

L’Auberge Provencale has teamed up with Tesla Motors to provide an increasingly desirable amenity; Tesla Destination Charging.

One of the driving principles behind L’Auberge Provencale is a commitment to the environment. In the 1980s, the Inn introduced several green-initiatives that have carried into the way it operates business today. Many of its sustainability efforts, including the local garden that supplies its restaurant with fresh vegetables and fruit, have attracted eco-conscious guests and contributed to the success of its business. When Select registry approached L’Auberge Provencale with the opportunity of installing Tesla Destination Charging, there was no doubt that it needed to participate. The addition of Tesla Destination Charging is part of several efforts implemented by the Inn to lower its carbon footprint while providing a special convenience to its guests.

L’Auberge Provencale joins a rapidly growing network of resorts in Tesla Destination Charging, including more than 160 other Select Registry properties throughout the U.S. This new program provides hotels, resorts, and restaurants around the world with charging equipment, and gives Tesla drivers the freedom to charge wherever they want to travel by replicating the charging convenience owners are accustomed to at home. (L’Auberge Provencale has one 80A Tesla Wall Connectors; guests charge for free and non-guests can charge for $15.)

“It’s been a little under a month since the charger has been installed and we’ve already seen a difference in customer attitudes. We’ve had several come up to us and ask us about it, and even more let us know that they’ll be back with their Tesla vehicles or other electronic cars to use the station! We’re always looking for ways to improve our guests’ experience here at L’Auberge Provencale. This is our opportunity to enhance our sustainable efforts and provide exceptional offerings to our guests, all while remaining one of the most technologically advanced bed & breakfasts in the area. Plus, I really love Tesla!” said Celeste Borel, Innkeeper of L’Auberge Provencale.

Tesla’s growing Supercharger network (now 400 stations along frequently-traveled highways) has inspired Model S owners to hit the road in increasing numbers. Owners can drive all day, charging for 30-40 minutes at Superchargers and then stop at night to stay at L’Auberge Provencale other quality-assured Select Registry properties, and other locations that have installed Tesla High Power Connectors. Tesla’s High Power Wall Connectors add 58 miles of range per hour, topping off Model S’s full 265 miles of range in just a few hours on a single charge.

Select Registry properties and other Tesla Destination Charging station locations are located on Select Registry’s website, Tesla’s interactive webpage, and will soon be featured in every Tesla vehicles’ 17” touchscreen through the navigation application to easily plan trips and locate the property. Visit www.teslamotors.com/findus for more information.

Photographs of the property and chargers are available upon request.
