Dining at Quimby Country
American Plan – Peak Season
In Peak Season, we serve three meals a day in our dining room, in addition to offering box lunches for people on the go. Depending on the weather, we have two cookouts, a Northeast Kingdom Barbecue on Tuesday and a Lobster Bake on Friday. All taking advantage of the best local produce and ingredients available.

Early Summer, Late Summer,
and Fall Foliage Seasons
In spring and fall, we serve a delicious complimentary Continental Breakfast daily in our dining room. We also offer “creative box lunches” at a modest price. For dinner, there are some great local restaurants, pubs, and diners which our staff can recommend. Our cottages with kitchens provide further options.
Twice a week, assuming the weather cooperates, evening meals move to the Rock at Big Averill Lake.
Tuesdays, guests enjoy a Northeast Kingdom Barbecue of chicken and ribs, slathered in maple syrup BBQ sauce, along with hamburgers, hot dogs, and all the fixings, like corn bread, coleslaw, roasted red potato salad, Baked beans, tossed green salad with a choice of dressings, and corn on the cob from local farms.
Fridays are for Quimby Country’s famous Lobster Bake, featuring Mill Cove’s fresh lobster, pulled from the waters of Boothbay Harbor, ME, and rushed to our little corner of Vermont. The usual accompaniments include creamy clam chowder, corn on the cob from local farms, roasted red potato salad, coleslaw, tossed salad, and fresh breads. Landlubbers and kids need not worry – delicious steaks, hamburgers, and hot dogs are always available too.
Dessert might be a choice of watermelon, blueberry or strawberry shortcake, or Quimby Country chocolate cake, followed by roasting s’mores over the camp fire (suitable sticks provided) and an explosion of penny candy from the piñata the kids made earlier in the week.
Before the cookouts end, they enter the “golden hour,” which provides warm lighting for family photos, followed by the sun setting in a blaze of color over Big Averill.
