view of a cottage livingroomQuimby’s offers three-season accommodations in our 19 well-kept cabins. Nine of the cabins have kitchens and all 19 have wood stoves, porches overlooking Forest Lake, comfortable beds and daily maid service.

In addition, the main lodge has a fireplace, library, and chessboard and the rec hall provides space for crafts and games on rainy days. Wireless is available in the main lodge, along with complimentary long distance phone calls.

In summer, guests get a sit down breakfast and dinner in our comfortable dining room, a boxed or picnic lunch, complimentary camp counselors to arrange activities for visiting youngsters, and lakeside lobster cookouts once a week, weather permitting.

In fall and spring, guests are on their own for meals and can stay in one of the nine cottages with kitchens. There is no television available, but who needs TV when there are galaxies of stars to gaze at nightly given the clear mountain air?

“For families that enjoy the outdoors, Quimby Country is ideal. It sits on one of the prettiest lakes in Vermont and is a brief 10-minute walk from the most unspoiled swimming and boating anywhere. Counselors keep the kids busy all day and all meals are taken in the century-old lodge, where wifi is available for people who have trouble cutting the string to civilization. The inn’s one phone line is also there (free long distance). Quimby’s is a great place to experience the outdoors and each other’s company.”
