Registration is NOW OPEN!  

It is time to celebrate Quimby Country’s 130th Anniversary! Over a century, Quimby Country has been welcoming guests and bringing people together to recreate and share time with one another in the great and beautiful wilderness of the Northeast Kingdom. Our 130th Anniversary weekend will be no different. The goal of the weekend will be to create a space for guests, staff and other friends of Quimby’s, both old and new, to gather and celebrate Quimby’s storied history together. We sincerely hope you will join us in this great celebration as we honor the past and look toward the future of Quimby Country. 

To that end, with the help of our 130th Anniversary planning committee, we believe we have put together the perfect blend of time with one another, the opportunity to explore and the chance to reconnect with everything you love about Quimby Country. We are equally excited to share that concurrent with our anniversary weekend, Quimby’s will be hosting the annual Averill Lakes Association (ALA) meeting. Following the meeting ALA members will have an opportunity to join in on our lunch gathering allowing an opportunity for guests and local Averill residences to connect. All attendees of the weekend are welcome to join the guest speaker portion of the ALA meeting. Historically ALA brings in a guest speaker who focuses on efforts to conserve treasured lakes such as the Averill Lakes.

We encourage you to explore our 130th Anniversary page to learn more and help us spread the exciting news of Quimby’s 130th Anniversary! This page will be updated from time to time as more details and planning takes place.  Our goal is to have as large of a representation from all generations (both guests and staff), as we believe it is the people who make Quimby’s the unique and special place that it is. We hope to add attendees names to this site as they register, so you can see who else will be in attendance.  

On this page you will have the opportunity to view the weekend schedule, register for the event and book your stay. If you have any questions or require any further information we encourage you to be in touch. We can’t wait to “Welcome Home” as many of you as possible this August!!!
