Visit Quechee

Home to Vermont’s deepest gorge and a plethora of antique shops and artisans, this village in Windsor County has something for everyone.

Quechee is a small Vermont village with a lovely personality. Its natural beauty and annual hot air balloon festival put it on the map. Discover everything it has to offer, from a covered bridge to a dramatic gorge.

Explore Quechee State Park. Hike along its network of trails. Set up a tent or RV overnight in one of its many campsites. Go fishing or whitewater kayaking in the Ottauquechee River, a tributary of the Connecticut River.

Check out the park’s main attraction, Quechee Gorge. It is Vermont’s deepest gorge, created by glacial activity dating 13,000 years back. Look down from vantage points along Route 4. Get your camera ready to capture breathtaking views of the Ottauquechee River rushing 165 feet (50 meters) below you.

New England is renowned for its quaint covered bridges, and Quechee’s is no exception. Walk or drive through the Quechee Covered Bridge. The original historic wooden structure was built in 1970. Hurricane Irene nearly destroyed it in 2011, necessitating extensive repairs. Today, it spans the Ottauquechee River, as strong and picturesque as ever.

Check out the unique Irish-style glassware in the Simon Pearce Mill. Since 1981, the company has created beautiful pieces in its factory in an old mill overlooking the waterfall. See a glassblowing demonstration, browse the shop or enjoy a meal in the on-site restaurant.

Discover the shops and restaurants along Woodstock Road. Look for heirloom finds in Quechee’s many antique stores.

Plan your visit to coincide with the annual Quechee Hot Air Balloon Craft and Music Festival. Held every Father’s Day weekend, this famous festival features colorful hot air balloons, a host of family-friendly activities and dozens of artisans selling their wares.

Quechee is centrally located in eastern Vermont. Drive 15 minutes west to the bustling town of Woodstock or an hour to the city of Rutland. Discover the historic White River Junction, located on the New Hampshire border just 7 miles (11 kilometers) east.

The location is lovely. 1/2 mile from Simon Pearce glass blowing showroom and restaurant. Lunch there is one of our favorite places. And the inn is close to Woodstock Vermont. Another plus.
