Jane Austen Weekends

Jane Austen weekends at Vermont Bed and Breakfast

Leisurely weekends of literary-inspired diversions at The Governor’s House have something for every Jane Austen devoteé. Book discussions of Pride and Prejudice, Persuasion, Emma, or Sense and Sensibility. Movies. Afternoon tea. Informal talks. Carriage or sleigh rides. The challenging quiz over Sunday brunch. Stay for the weekend or come for individual activities. Or try a special weekend where each participant becomes a character from one of Jane Austen’s novels. It’s not Bath, but it is Hyde Park and you’ll love Vermont circa 1800. For more details, please go to our Jane Austen page.

For the schedule, please check our calendar of events.

Smugglers’ Notch
When the Embargo Act of 1807 prohibited trade with Britain and Canada, the residents of northern Vermont used this pass across Mount Mansfield to continue trading with their closest city, Montreal. Later the path was used as part of the Underground Railroad helping escaped slaves into Canada. And during Prohibition, a lot of whiskey found its way south through the Notch. It’s closed as soon as the first snow covers the ground, but during the summer and fall it makes a great drive, or bike ride for those in very good shape, as the narrow paved road twists and turns sharply around huge rocks. There are also several good hikes, including to Sterling Pond.

hiking trails near the Governor's House, a Vermont B&B

Your hike can start at  the front door of the Governor’s House. Take your choice of town, country roads, nature trails,  or along the river as you follow the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail east to a brewery with great food or west along the river and choose the time or distance that’s right for you. We also have many books which list nearby hikes and we have printouts to share of our favorites.  A few are listed below.


Long Trail
hikers leaving The Governor's House BandB for the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail, Hyde Park, VTThe 270-mile footpath follows the main ridge of the Green Mountains the length of Vermont from Massachusetts to Canada. Built between 1910 & 1930, it’s the oldest long-distance hiking trail in the country. There are 175 miles on its 82 side trails and it was the first leg of the Appalachian Trail. Guides and maps available from the Green Mountain Club which maintains the trail and also schedules organized hikes.

802 244-7037

Lamoille Valley Rail Trai

Immediately adjacent to The Governor’s House in Hyde Park, this scenic trail that traverses the state from New Hampshire to New York is open for non-motor use and connects to a network of other trails. The old rail bed which follows, and sometimes crosses, the river through the mountains has been described as the prettiest in Vermont.  This 93-mile trail has almost no inclines at all and is wonderful for biking. Since Hyde Park is right in the middle, it’s ideal for bikers going from one end to the other. In winter, the trail is maintained by VAST for snowmobile use, but it is still quiet enough for peaceful cross-country skiing.

Cricket Hill Trail

This trail was established and is maintained by Lamoille Union High School students and friends for hiking and cross-country skiing for our high school teams and the general public. There is no charge, but feel free to make a donation.

Smugglers’ Notch State Park

It’s a climb to the top, but the view is spectacular as you follow in the footsteps of those prohibition-era smugglers who gave the pass its name.

At 93 miles, this trail is now the longest rail-trail in New England. Hyde park and the Governor’s House are about in the middle and adjacent to the trail. It passes through the Fisher Bridge, one the very few remaining covered railroad bridges in the country and perhaps the only remaining one in the world with a cupola. The section along the Lamoille River in Hyde Park has been described as the prettiest in Vermont and as an ex-railroad bed, is almost completely flat until you reach the end at St. Johnsbury.
