Innsider's Tip: A
must see is the Bread & Puppet
Museum in Glover (about a ½ hour drive from
the Inn). Here you may tour the 100 year old refurbished
barn to view the world's largest collection of gigantic
puppets. In the summer, the theme usually involves
political satire and includes theatrical puppet performances,
live music, guest speakers, exhibits and poetry.
