Rolands Place offers a truly memorable dining experience that is a culmination of years of experience and will appreciate the careful attention to detail that is the hallmark of the innkeepers. Guests will relax and feel at home whether after a long workday or following a full day of exploring in the Green Mountains.
Rolands Place will benefit from the expansive knowledge of its chef, Roland Gaujac. His background, training and specialties are traditional and provencal cuisine of France. He is a graduate of the Grenoble Hotelry School in France and served as a chef in the Four Seasons Hotel of Newport Beach, California. For eight years following, Chef Roland was a private chef to affluent households and in doing so expanded his knowledge of cuisine by working directly with the great chefs of San Francisco, Los Angeles, Detroit and New York. In addition, he enjoyed unlimited access to all of the latest ethnic cuisine, while developing and maintaining a distinctive cuisine with his own personal style.
After dinner, guests are presented with a variety of tempting homemade desserts to put the finishing touches on their dining experience. Guests are sure to be attracted to his soft spoken, charming French personality and handsome curling mustache.
Rolands Place has guest rooms available that include breakfast. The 1796 House is 5 miles north of Middlebury & 30 miles south of Burlington. Great biking, hiking, antique shopping, swimming & fantastic views. Something to do for all Four Seasons! When time permits, Chef Roland will try to visit the dining room to greet each guest, welcome them to the Inn, and inquire about their meal.
Roland’s Place is also wonderful for weddings of 100 to 200 people. The 35 x 80-foot deck attached to the Inn has a white canvas cover and a wonderful view of the Adirondack and Green Mountains. The grounds are beautiful and naturally landscaped for the perfect wedding. Miniature white lights surround the deck, and the deck surface makes an excellent dance floor.
