A clean, crisp lake with a sandy beach and lots of secret swimming spots. (We can share when you are here, but not on the internet.) Carved by a glacier and nestled between two mountains, Mount Pisgah & Mount Hor. Both mountains offer excellent short hikes with beautiful views of the lake.

Biking – (other than Kingdom Trails)
The Northeast Kingdom is home to miles and miles of gravel roads with few cars. We can help you design a route of your choice.

Bread Puppet
In the summer, there are weekend shows in Glover – the Theater continues its prolific output of new shows, addressing the issues of the day – like militarism, capitalism, and ecology – as well as re-staging classic Bread and Puppet shows from the 1960’s and 1970’s.
The puppets, masks, paintings and graphics of the Bread and Puppet Theater are housed in a 150-year-old barn in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. It is one of the largest collections of some of the biggest puppets and masks in the world. The museum is open year round.
Rye bread is baked using a Quebecois-style oven.
