Sightseeing
Willoughby Lake is the deepest lake in the area, making for lots of different stories, some true and some maybe not. Either way it is surrounded with mysteries. Picturesque Willoughby Gap supports two mountains (Mt. Pisgah and Mt. Hor) for hiking or ice climbing and each offers spectacular views from the top. Scuba divers love to explore the depths of Willoughby Lake, swimmers enjoy the cleanliness, boaters enjoy the expanse and fishermen enjoy the record size fish. There are three beaches for entertainment; one nice sandy beach is located at the north end of the lake which is the largest and most popular and the other two are at the south end. One is a family beach and the other, for those so inclined, is a nudist beach.

The Bread and Puppet Theater was founded in 1963 by Peter Schumann on New York City’s Lower East Side. Besides rod-puppet and hand puppet shows for children, the concerns of the first productions were rents, rats, police, and other problems of the neighborhood. More complex theater pieces followed, in which sculpture, music, dance and language were equal partners. The puppets grew bigger and bigger. Annual presentations for Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving and Memorial Day often included children and adults from the community as participants. Many performances were done in the street. During the Vietnam War, Bread and puppet staged block-long processions and pageants involving hundreds of people. In 1974 Bread and Puppet moved to a farm in Glover in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. The 140-year old hay barn was transformed into a museum for veteran puppets. Our Domestic Resurrection Circus, a two day outdoor festival of puppetry shows, was presented annually through 1998. The company makes its income from touring new and old productions both on the American continent and abroad, and from sales of Bread and Puppet Press’ posters and publications. The traveling puppet shows range from tightly composed theater pieces presented by members of the company to extensive outdoor pageants which require the participation of many volunteers. Today, Bread and Puppet continues to be one of the oldest, nonprofit, self-supporting theatrical companies in the country.

Food scene
Once upon a time, there was a girl and a guy. They fell in love, got married and had two beautiful little girls. Before having kids, her husband asked to buy the pub down the road, but she said no. The choice to be married and raise a family outweighed the desire to be business owners. Years went by, and their two beautiful little girls grew into young women. Now, with the input of their daughters, the couple asked the question again: "do we buy the pub?" And that's where our story begins... The Gap Pub and Grill is a small pub located up from the north beach of Willoughby Lake. We are a friendly and casual spot to come and have a drink and some good food. We encourage you to come and be a part of our story - and family - happily ever after.
