Jane Austen Weekends
The Governor's House in Hyde Park
100 Main Street
Hyde Park, Vermont

A leisurely weekend of literary-inspired diversions has something for every Jane Austen devotee. Imagine a literary retreat that will slip you quietly back into Regency England in a beautiful old mansion where Jane herself would feel at home. Take afternoon tea. Listen to Mozart. Bring your needlework. Share your thoughts at a book discussion of Persuasion, Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility or Emma and how the movies stand up to the books. Attend the talk about the time of Jane Austen. Test your knowledge of Jane Austen, her books, and the Regency period and possibly take home a prize. Take a carriage or sleigh ride. For the gentleman there are riding and fly fishing as well as lots of more modern diversions if a whole weekend of Jane is not his cup of tea. Join every activity or simply indulge yourself quietly all weekend watching the movies. Dress in whichever century suits you. And imagine the interesting conversation with a whole houseful of Jane's readers under one roof. Weekend guests have commented that they wish there had been a tape recorder under the dinner table so they could replay the evening again and again. It won't be good company; it will be the best! It's not Bath, but it is Hyde Park and you'll love Vermont circa 1800.
