We had two journalists visiting last year. Julia Shipley from Seven Days participated in the August Pride and Prejudice weekend and wrote a lovely piece for their State of the Arts section which you can view online here. And Melanie Stetson Freeman, a staff photographer from The Christian Science Monitor, joined us on Saturday of the In Character weekend to snap pictures for her photo piece in their September 18th magazine and you can view the online version here.
Please inquire about the special rate for book groups, families, or others who may reserve a Jane Austen weekend on dates other than those regularly scheduled as availability permits and may choose which novel will be the theme.

Click on the Innkeeper’s Blog to see some photos from the 2013 “in character” weekend. Another Jane Austen “in character” weekend will be scheduled for August 2022. Each guest will choose to be a character from any one of Austen’s novels. Period dress is optional, but guests will interact in character throughout the weekend. The activities will depend somewhat on the weather and participant interest, but may include a Regency dinner party, an evening of games, letter writing, fencing, English Country dancing, crewel embroidery, tatting, rolled paper decoration, a game of croquet, a very long walk, riding (side-saddle and astride), carriage driving, playing whist, sewing workshops, and a picnic with or without Colonel Brandon. Weekend rates are $545.00 for singles, $495.00 per person double, and $460.00 per person triple plus 9% tax and there is an additional charge to participate in some activities. Now’s your chance to be Elizabeth Bennet, Anne Elliot, Mr Knightly, or even Lady Catherine, but only one of each character may sign up so make haste to confirm your reservation. Bring your own Darcy or perhaps you’ll meet him on the croquet lawn. Perhaps the door to the romance of Jane’s world isn’t in Hammersmith after all.
Regular Jane Austen Weekend rates start at $455.00 for singles, $425.00 per person for doubles, $395.00 per person for triples, and include two nights’ lodging, Friday evening’s talk over dessert and coffee, full breakfast on Saturday morning, Saturday afternoon tea, Saturday dinner and book discussion or English country dancing, early Sunday Continental breakfast, and the Jane Austen quiz during Sunday brunch. Add any weekdays immediately before and/or after a Jane Austen weekend and get the room for half the regular rate. 9% Vermont tax is additional. The usual cancellation policy applies.
Or come for just an evening and choose from these activities:
Informal Talk with Coffee and Dessert, Friday, 8:00 p.m., $15.00
Afternoon Tea, Saturday, 2:30 p.m., $30.00
Book Discussion and Dinner, Saturday, 7:00 p.m., $42.00 or
Dinner and English Country Dancing 7:00 p.m., $42.00
Jane Austen Quiz and Sunday Brunch, Sunday, 11:30 a.m., $16.00
