The Runaway Manor Bed and Breakfast is located in Glover, Vermont, in the Lake Region of the NEK, the Center of the Kingdom.

Nearby attractions include the spectacular lakes and mountains that make the Northeast Kingdom so special. Lake Parker is a short walk from the Manor. Shadow Lake‘s free public beach in Glover is a short drive. The Crystal Lake State Park in Barton offers comprehensive facilities. Willoughby Lake in Westmore is the largest and most stunning lake and offers free public beaches on the north and south ends. All four lakes have boat access for fishing or recreation.

Easy to moderate hikes with phenomenal views are available at the Willoughby State Forest and Bald & Haystack Mountains.

There are also a large number of Back Road Bike Trips that are less technical, yet still a great workout and the best way to see the land.

If mountain biking on single track is the thrill you seek, check out Kingdom Trails in Burke.

Parker Pie, just a mile down the road, offers world class pizza, comfort food, as well as an excellent variety of beers and wine on tap. Make sure to catch some live music entertainment as well.

Looking for a great spot for lunch, then make sure to check out Parson’s Corner in nearby Barton.
