Please contact Trish Dougherty if you would like to be on the mailing list for our annual marathon reading.  The readings take place outside Gifford Hall each October during Fall Family Weekend.  Baklava is provided for everyone but you must register beforehand if you wish to wear the laurel wreath and read.

When can I register for accommodations at Bread Loaf?

Registration for Fall Family weekend accommodations at Bread Loaf will be online only. The registration form will be available mid-September (be watching for an email coming your way soon with more information).

The Bread Loaf campus is located in Ripton, Vermont, about twenty minutes from Middlebury. The campus is a 2 1/2 hour drive from Montreal, about 4 hours from both Boston and Hartford, 5 hours from New York City, and 6 1/2 hours from Philadelphia.

What are the accommodations at Bread Loaf?

The Bread Loaf campus consists of one main building (The Inn) and many smaller houses or cottages. Due to renovations happening starting this fall (2014), the Inn will be off-line for guests. This will mean that there are about 150 fewer beds than normal, so this year will be very limited for options.

What are the accommodations at Bread Loaf?

The Bread Loaf campus consists of one main building (The Inn) and many smaller houses or cottages. Most of the sleeping arrangements are single beds-either one or two in a room. We do not put people in the same room unless it's requested.

With few exceptions, bathroom facilities are shared.  The cost to stay at Bread Loaf is $50/bed/night. We do not have the staff to turn over beds and we therefore have a 2 night minimum stay for Fall Family Weekend. The price includes a full hot breakfast in the dining room of the main inn.

What is Bread Loaf?

The Bread Loaf campus is located in Ripton, Vermont, about twenty minutes from Middlebury. The campus is a 2 1/2 hour drive from Montreal, about 4 hours from both Boston and Hartford, 5 hours from New York City, and 6 1/2 hours from Philadelphia.
