Reservations are required!

 

A leisurely weekend of literary-inspired diversions has something for every Jane Austen devoteé. Slip quietly back into Regency England in a beautiful old mansion. Take afternoon tea. Listen to Mozart. Bring your needlework. Share your thoughts at a discussion of Pride and Prejudice and how the movies stand up to the book. Attend the talk entitled The World of Jane Austen. Test your knowledge of Pride and Prejudice and the Regency period and possibly take home a prize. Take a carriage ride 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. It’s not Bath, but it is Hyde Park and you’ll love Vermont circa 1800. 

Note that our very own Kelly McDonald will be speaking on 
“Georgiana Darcy and the ‘Naïve Art’ of Young Ladies”   ~ Looking into the lives of ladies like Georgiana Darcy (Pride & Prejudice), as expressed through their artwork.

  1. I encourage all readers to consider this wonder weekend! I attended the Persuasion weekend in January and have secured my reservation for the September Pride & Prejudice weekend. It is a wonderful opportunity to share our love of Austen and Regency with other Janeites.
