“Thank you Lilly, Gene, and the entire staff at Quimby Country (QC) for hosting our corporate retreat!! While the service, attention to detail, and food were all amazing, what made QC perfect for us was the venue. The setting allowed us to “disconnect”, get to better know the members of our 15-person team on a personal level, and provided a distraction-free environment for our working sessions. For us, the result was a great strategy session that allowed our entire team to coalesce around a shared plan for the coming year. We look forward to coming back next year!”

Quimby Country is a total unplug for those addicted to their smartphone. This place is quaint & rustic with a hidden surprise; some of the best gourmet dinner meals you may ever experience! Our gracious host, Lilly, makes you feel welcomed and relaxed with her friendly disposition. The grounds are amazing. I highly recommend Quimby Country! Thank you so much, Lilly.

We did a trip here last June and it was absolutely wonderful. A gorgeous spot, very secluded, a stone’s throw from Canada. The hosts are energetic, positive, friendly. Cottages are sweet — little wood stoves, front porches with rocking chairs, right on the water. The scenery can’t be beat. We fell asleep to the yodels of loons each night. Walking trails, 3 gorgeous lakes to kayak and canoe on. We will be doing another loon trip there next June. I really encourage anyone looking for a sweet getaway to check out Quimby Country! It would be perfect for a wedding or a family reunion.

The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department hosted a regional furbearer technical committee meeting at Quimby Country last September.  Gene was a great host—very accommodating to our every need.  The food was great, the meeting room and cabins perfect, and the facilities and surroundings provided after business fun (hiking, fishing, campfire, indoor ping pong, shuffleboard, and darts).  It was a beautiful and relaxing setting and I heard nothing but great reviews from the participants.  I would recommend Quimby Country to anyone who enjoys the outdoor beauty of Vermont.

The Northern Forest Center held our staff retreat at Quimby Country in early October 2019. Gene and Lilly were fabulous hosts and provided all we needed to make our retreat a wonderful success. The foliage and landscaping provided a beautiful background for our event, and the quiet shore of Forest Lake was truly a place to retreat.  The fireplaces (and wood supply) were just what was needed to keep us all cozy in our cabins in the cool fall weather. Quimby Country is a great place to retreat, plan and unplug.
