30-Day Journey to Quechee

There’s nothing more exciting in life than having a well-planned vacation waiting in the wings. While even short trips have a way of inspiring and rejuvenating, when you have 30days to set aside in the name of fun, discovery, and exploration, it’s that much better. Particularly when your travels bring you to the scenic destination of Quechee, Vermont. This year-round destination beckons visitors to come and make the most of some truly fantastic terrain. Whether you’re one for biking, hiking, skiing, restaurant hopping or simply savoring the sights that surround you, Quechee is a place that promises to provide it all! Here are a few ideas when it comes to making the most of your 30-day stay at our vacation homes in Vermont:

Fun Activities to Enjoy at Family Friendly Resorts in Vermont

If your 30-day stay at our vacation homes in Vermont happens to fall within the winter months, a trip to the Ski Quechee Club is bound to be a highlight. Whether you spend a single day or make it into a multi-day experience, ski enthusiasts love this locale for its accommodating setup, readily available lessons, and challenging slopes that can meet a variety of abilities and skillsets. If you’re in the mood for a round of ice skating, this club also hosts a winter rink as well as horse-drawn sleigh rides that give you a comprehensive look at the fantastic wintery terrain. For those that travel this way for a 30-day adventure in the warmer months of the year, outdoor adventures are wonderful when they revolve around hiking and biking outings. The Quechee Gorge is by far the ultimate icon of Quechee and an equally intriguing place to plan on spending time hitting the trails during your getaway. Bike the lower trails for an incredible view or make the most of trekking top to bottom and set aside at least an hour to make it happen. When you’re ready to wind down and take things at a slower pace, planning a stroll under the Quechee Valley Bridge on Waterman Hill Road is always inspiring. While not historic, this covered bridge is a wonderful testament to architecture and a great place to work on photography skills as well.

Places to Eat That Are Sure to Please

Visitors to Quechee with a passion for palate-pleasing stops won’t want to miss at least one meal at Simon Pearce Restaurant while they’re in town. This delightful culinary destination is popular amongst locals and visitors alike and brings the savory dishes accompanied by a fantastic view. While guests can enjoy everything from lamb shoulders and salad to cheese plates and chicken, they’ll also enjoy beautiful views of Ottauquechee Falls from their elegant table in the main dining room. If you happen to be in the mood for a more casual dining option, check out Pizza Chef of Quechee while you’re here. This laid-back chain is well-loved locally and serves up a wide variety of traditional and specialty pizzas in addition to Italian dishes, salads, and sides. This is a savory option when you’re looking for a quick fuel-up after a long day of adventure.

Things to See

When you’re hoping to sprinkle in some educational moments into your stay, a stop at the VINS Nature Center is just the ticket. Sitting west of the gorge, this center works to educate the general public on wildlife conservation and also doubles as a site for avian rehabilitation. Its collection of elevated boardwalks gives guests a chance to wander through the trees, spotting birds, and learning more along the way. The center sits on 47acres of land and is just next door to Quechee State Park, making it a great gateway activity into a day of further fun and exploration in nature.
