There is something about Vermont that lures the romantic and the adventurous

Quite possibly, it's our unspoiled mountains, picture-perfect towns and friendly villagers, covered bridges, historic sites, pristine lakes and babbling brooks. But whether it's our scenic back roads and breathtaking views or the fascination of rustic, mixed with refined, people travel from around the world to experience the timeless beauty of this magical state. And we have lots to do....AND....Quechee was fortunate to experience 98.61% of totality during the April 8th Solar Eclipse!  What an incredible experience for our guests, our friends and ourselves!



Visit the Quechee Gorge; about 1 mile away.  The views from our property are of the hillsides from across the Gorge - beautiful any time of year.


Land your private or chartered helicopter - there's plenty of room right on our backyard

Hot-Air Ballooning right from the backyard!

  • Quechee/Woodstock is a walker's paradise with an interconnected, compact system of pathways, trails, and carriage roads. They take you from the historic center of Woodstock, across meadows and woodlands, through a national park and up to scenic vistas overlooking valleys, villages, and rural countryside.  Take a day hike or a short stroll. Enjoy the rich conifer forests of Mount Peg, the historic core of Woodstock Village and its pedestrian pathways, Faulkner Park, Billings Park, the Vermont Land Trust's King Farm, and the historic carriage roads and paths of the Marsh-Billings- Rockefeller National Historical Park.  Luce's Lookout is a 2.5 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Woodstock, Vermont that offers scenic views and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is best used from March until October. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.  If you are seeking a more back-country experience, the Appalachian Trail passes just north of Woodstock, and the Long Trail is not far away. There are several Appalachian Trail access points in and around Woodstock and access points to the Long Trail are less than an hour drive away.
