About the Quechee Area

Quechee is best known for its gorge and its annual Father's day weekend Balloon Festival and Crafts Fair. The area has been built up around the winding Ottaquechee River.

Quechee features two private, 18-hole championship courses designed by a renowned New England golf course architect, Geoffrey Cornish. Both the Lakeland course, surrounding a serene Vermont lake, and the more challenging Highland courses are kept in immaculate shape at all times ad have earned accolades from both Golf Digest and Vermont Golf magazines.

Simon Pearce restaurant overlooks a dam in Quechee Village, VermontBe sure to visit Simon Pearce right in the village. You can see pieces of heavy glassware hand-blown on-site right from the roaring glass furnaces. This is the original shop where Simon Pearce started out. It used to be linen mill. There is an adjoining restaurant serving great food with a terrific view overlooking the Ottaquechee River and the original dam that now powers the glass furnaces downstairs.
