The Bed and Breakfast

Lee Duberman and Richard Fink invite you to the (most likely) last chapter in their story of food, drink and family!

Lee and Richard moved to San Miguel with their son Noah and their dog Bailey after 30 years in Vermont.  They met while teaching and bartending at the New England Culinary Institute, and within a few years had created four restaurants and two wonderful sons together.  Their most well known restaurant, Ariel’s in Brookfield, Vermont, provided 21 years of fine farm-to-table dining to Central Vermont, and their reputation spread much further.

They fell in love with San Miguel their first time here in 2001, and for many years they have been plotting their move.  Finally, they are here to stay.

Casa Papaya is Lee and Richard’s San Miguel home. It is an experiment in hospitality, encompassing three B&B guest rooms,  Chef’s dinners open to the public, a wood-fired oven on the roof, providing hand-crafted pizzas on Sunday afternoons, market tours, cooking classes and small-event catering.

Casa Papaya San Miguel is a No Smoking Business  .  We do not allow smoking in guest rooms or public areas, including the roof and the courtyard.  No children under 10 are allowed to stay in the B & B, but they are welcome for our Pizza Sundays!

We hope to meet you soon!  Please explore our website for details on all we have to offer, and contact us for more information and reservations, or to be added to our mailing list.
