My cabin was rustic and comfortable. Loved having a writing desk looking at the pond. Staff are welcoming and responsive. Covid reduced the food service understandably, which would be my only complaint (and not under their control).

We enjoyed every minute of our stay at Quimby Country. Hospitality comes naturally to Lilly and Gene, they were always eager to please and went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. The buildings and grounds are clean, lovely and well maintained. Cottages are rustic in the best sense of the word. We spent five nights in September and almost wished we'd had rain so that we would have had to stay in our cottage with a cozy fire in the woodstove. Plenty of firewood provided. We took advantage of the canoes and bicycles freely provided. Loved the well-maintained and beautiful path through the woods a quarter mile to Big Averill Lake. Loons on both lakes serenaded us throughout our stay. No meals were available in the lodge dining room during our visit, but the dining room looked extremely inviting. We brought our own food and cooked all our own meals (some cottages have kitchens), and while we missed a few kitchen supplies, we were able to do everything we needed as far as cooking. Don't expect luxury, that's not what Quimby is about - but expect to unwind and have a simple life away from the noise and bustle.

We wished we could have stayed longer! Lily and Gene were very welcoming and helpful. The property is gorgeous and filled with opportunities. We can’t wait for the summer reservation system to open so we can book for 2021.

Cozy, comfortable cottage in an exquisite setting. Gene and Lilly are wonderful hosts, professional, knowledgeable and accommodating. My husband and I joined 3 other couples from our neighborhood in Vermont. Our visit was perfect. We paddles, fished, hiked and visited local waterfalls.

What makes this place so special is not the wonderful unspoiled Northeast Kingdom world of foRest and lakes and loons, but the the owners, Lilly and Gene,. From the first hour of arrival, they managed to makes us feel they were welcoming back old friends ( which next year, they will be). Their friendliness, generosity, and love for Quimby Country made what would have otherwise been onky a lovely place to stay in pristine country, a uniquely wonderful experience. We were there during Free range season- (no meals, no activities), which only made us more determined to correct the deficiency with our entire family next year. Cabins were roomy, our fill kitchen was well equipped, and the mattresses were good. The front porch was our favorite place to sit, and to commune with neighbors . And not lastly, for our time of visit, the wood was just right for easy fire starting in the wood stove.
