Quimby's is a beautiful, family-oriented vacation spot in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom. I spent many summers there during my childhood, and now I bring my kids up there all the way from Florida. We love it!

We have stayed here several times and love the peace, cleanliness, fabulous location with all sorts of outdoor activity available or simply sitting around and reading. Easy access to the Eastern Townships of Quebec which are well worth exploring on the rainy days. Very friendly as well. We will return.

Cool nights, warm days, clean air. Perfect for deep relaxing and regaining a sense of wonder at the beauty of nature. We have been coming for many decades. Quimby's had been an anchor in my life. Try it.

We stayed during the off-season, so the dining hall was not open and I cannot speak about the food. The location was beautiful. The cottage was charming and very clean. The bed was very comfortable. We used the boats to go out on the lake and fish and followed a wooded path to another lake where more boats and paddle...

All the earlier rave reviews are accurate. This place is amazing. We were there for a weekend with a group of friends who have been camping/vacationing together since the late 1980s and this place was perfect for us. 'Rustic' is the word to describe the cottages, but ours was clean and the beds were comfortable. The service was incredible and...

A wonderful getaway. Peaceful,quiet,friendly and very clean. My husband had a good time fishing and boats with trolling motors are provided, as well as kayaks. A beautiful lake surrounded the cabins and made for a picturesque scene.

My favorite vacation spot. No tvs, computers or telephones to distract you. Great hiking, tennis by Forest Pond and swimming at the rock or at sandy beach. The Northeast KIngdom of Vermont at it's finest

“Cabins of various sizes- all views equal- variable is walking distance to lodge (farther being even quieter).”

“You can light a fire in the wood stove in your cabin on chilly mornings. A great way to start your day.”

“Each cottage is unique with various combinations of bedrooms, porches, living rooms, tub bath or shower. All are very old and heated with wood stoves if needed. Part of the charm is the simplicity of the cottage. Dog friendly but bring your own hairdryer if you need one.”
