To mark this important year for Jane Austen and our thoughts on her short life (December 16, 1775 – July 18, 1817), I am offering the remaining places at any weekend through September at half price to anyone who writes a eulogy, poem or very short story to be read at the weekend. I hope many will put quill to paper and help us mourn the unwritten books, but celebrate the great pleasure so many readers have had in the past 200 years.

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 2017. 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, carriage driving, archery, fencing, and a picnic with or without Colonel Brandon. Weekend rates are $395 for singles, $365 per person double, and $320 per person triple plus 9% tax and there is an additional charge to participate in some activities. Add $150 to each of the above rates for the special three-day holiday in character weekend June 30 – July 3. Now’s your chance to be Elizabeth Bennet, Anne Elliot or Lady Catherine, but only one of each character may sign up so make haste to confirm your reservation. Bring your own Darcy or maybe meet him on the croquet lawn. Perhaps the door to the romance of Jane’s world isn’t in Hammersmith after all.
Jane Austen Weekend rates start at $395 for singles, $365 per person for doubles, $320 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, early Sunday Continental breakfast, and the Jane Austen quiz with 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., $14.00
Afternoon Tea, Saturday, 3:00 p.m., $22.00
Book Discussion and Dinner, Saturday, 7:00 p.m., $35.00
Jane Austen Quiz and Sunday Brunch, Sunday, 11:30 a.m., $15.00
All four activities: $75.00
Please inquire about the special rate for book groups which may also reserve a Jane Austen weekend on dates other than those regularly scheduled as availability permits.
