Vermont’s Oldest Sporting Camp and Original Family Summer Camp
Nestled in the heart of Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom sits a family resort with more than 100 years of bringing generations together, a place called Quimby’s. Situated on 1,000 acres of Great North Woods Forest, Quimby’s offers something for everyone who is interested in stepping into a quieter place where nature beckons with opportunities for active and restful activities alike.
Hike or bike in spectacular New England beauty and then take to the water to swim, fish, kayak or row on crystal clear Big Averill Lake. Use of kayaks, paddleboards, and boats included!
If it’s peace and quiet that you crave, grab a rocking chair on the porch of the main Lodge or while away the hours in front of the fireplace, curled up with a good book.
Quimby’s 19 rustic cottages range in size from one to four bedrooms, some featuring full kitchens and all with porches overlooking Forest Lake. Get a morning cup of coffee and greet the day rocking on your porch!
We have internet, but no TV, and our guests enjoy slowing down to enjoy the pleasures of a quieter country life. Many families have been coming back for years and have formed lifelong friendships, cheering on the weekly “Quimbledon” family tennis tournament or socializing over a lobster at the weekly cookout (steaks and hamburgers available for landlubbers and kids).
Quimby Country sits amidst some of New England’s most productive and historic fishing waters. Brook trout, rainbows, browns, landlocked salmon, bass, pickerel, and pike swim the waters of Northern Vermont and New Hampshire. Whatever catch you desire is always less than an hour’s drive away and often much closer.
The only thing more overwhelming than the number of incredible fishing locations around Quimby’s is the sheer abundance of world class big and small game hunting available on nearby state and federal lands and privately owned commercial timberland.
