Fall Foliage Season (Sept. 14th to Oct. 9th – 2024)


There is no better place to be than Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom during fall foliage season. The trip is worth it, escape for a weekend or a week to explore and take in all of the beautiful colors. The forests in the Northeast Kingdom are always the first to change color in Vermont, usually from the end of September to very early October. Quimby Country, in Averill, is the perfect base to explore the area on both sides of the Canadian border. This is also a perfect time to get in some end of the summer fishing and experience some of the best Upland Hunting in New England.

Our rates include your own private cottage overlooking Forest Lake, with full bath, living room, wood stove, and porch. Many of our cottages also include full kitchens; small refrigerators are available for all. Guests enjoy complimentary use of our canoes, kayaks, paddle boards, and rowboats (with trolling motors) on Forest Lake, Great Averill, and Little Averill Lakes. Use of our clay tennis court, recreation hall, and the main lodge with fireplace, library, is also included. Check out our facilities gallery!

Due to our small size, short season, and location, cancellations can have a significant impact on us and we ask that you please read our reservation, cancellation and pricing policy. We strongly encourage you to purchase travel insurance to protect yourself in the event you need to cancel or modify your travel and vacation plans due to unforeseen circumstances. Thank you.


Making and Confirming a Reservation

Guests may make reservations by phone, by email, online, or at the Quimby Lodge. No booking at Quimby’s is confirmed until your initial deposit is received and you receive a confirmation via email from Quimby’s.


A 40% deposit is required for reservations with the balance due upon departure. Although we greatly appreciate payments by check, for ease of making online      reservations deposits made by credit cards are not subjected to the 3% credit card fee.     

Payment – While we do accept credit cards, cash or personal checks are preferred. All credit card charges (less the initial deposit) will be charged a 3% processing      fee at checkout.


If you cancel your reservation 1-month or more prior to your scheduled arrival, your payment will be refunded less 3% if your deposit was paid by a credit card.

If you cancel your reservation within 1-month of your scheduled arrival, your payment will be forfeited unless Quimby’s is able to rebook your cottage. In that event your payment will be refunded less 3% if your deposit was paid by a credit card.

However, in any case, if you choose to apply your payment to the following season, your entire payment will be credited to your account with no service charge. You may only carry over your payment for one year.

You are not entitled to a refund for an early departure or late arrival.

Specific Cottages

At the time of reservation, requests will be accepted for specific cottages. However, Quimby Country reserves the right to change cottage assignments at any time prior to arrival, without notice, in order to best accommodate all of our guests.
