Breakfasts

Breakfast, the day’s most important meal, takes on new meaning at The Oakwood Inn. Crafted from scratch daily, your palette will be sent to places dreams are made of, transporting you to some version of foodie heaven.

Culinary delights are part of The Oakwood Inn’s story. Known for decades-old family traditional recipes paired with current techniques for robust flavor and wide-eyed presentation excitement – this is where guests travel for breakfast. Breakfast + The Oakwood Inn + Lake Okoboji = the perfect place to Reconnect, Relax, and Refresh.

Ryan, we were happy to have you back as guests at The Oakwood Inn. We're delighted you enjoy coming to visit to get away! We look forward to welcoming you back again - maybe when our gardens are in bloom? 🙂

We absolutely love this place. The rooms are beautiful and well cared for, the hosts are friendly and helpful, and the breakfast is absolutely delicious. It’s a great mix of classic rustic B&B style but with modern conveniences and amenities. My wife and I have stayed here twice in the offseason just to get away and we’ll definitely come back again.
