Ideal family all-season vacation Deere Run Townhouse in peaceful Quechee Lakes. All manner of seasonal fun (private ski-hill, leaf-peeping, pools, hiking, golf, hot air ballon-ing, etc, etc) the best Fall leaf-peeping the country has to offer, world class winter fun that Vermont is famous for.
Condo features: 4 bedrooms (sleeps 6 adults, 4 children comfortably) including 2 master bedrooms. Two brand-new state-of-the-art water heaters means even with a full house, everybody gets a nice hot shower, even on the coldest Quechee ski-hill day. Strong wifi for the modern family as well as the latest smart TV's to run streaming apps. Parking is steps from the front door, a nice plus in foul winter weather. Located a few blocks off Route 4 means easy access, a short drive to excellent local markets, but still nice, quiet and removed.
Wood burning fireplace on main floor, Vermont caster wood-burning stove on lower level, sauna and jacuzzi in upstairs master bath meaning when the temps are dipping outside you are warm and Quechee-cozy inside. Main floor living room for the adults, downstairs family room for the kids. Also beautiful family deck with partial (seasonal) water views, gas grill. Full access to Quechee Lakes amenities including: clubhouse, feature indoor pool, private and reasonably priced ski-hill, especially for the family with small children (you might even say "cheap" when compared to the major nearby ski hills. Lots of people choose to stay in Quechee to ski the Quechee Hill most days and plan a "big" ski day at a nearby premiere mountain, often mid-week for better lift-ticket prices and more manageable crowds). A 3-day Quechee Ski Hill/2-day Killington/Okemo (both 45 minutes away) ski vacation is the norm. And if the weather doesn't cooperate, the Quechee club has a nice indoor pool that the kids often enjoy to kill a few hours. And of course tax-free shopping just across the Connecticut River in Lebanon NH, (everything from LL Bean and Best Buy to Walmart to BJ's).
Tennis anyone? Our unit is located steps from the condo group's private, recently refurbished tennis courts. No fee, court is included in rental.
Lake, golf, tennis, gym, etc etc (guest fees apply). Washer/dryer. Ideal for extended family rental. (Pets considered for additional fees, please be specific re: pets in your inquiry)
If you can, try to fit in a few hours to tour the campus of beautiful Dartmouth University, also a quick 20 minute drive from our condo. Some nice restaurants and shopping there in Hanover as well.
And of course you should plan a special brunch, lunch or dinner at the world famous, picturesque Simon Pearce restaurant (google it, you will see what I mean. Too beautiful to describe here). A must visit destination on virtually every New England travel list.
And I'd be remiss if I didn't put in a plug for the wings, sliders and craft IPA's on tap at Public House.
Last but not least, enjoy some fine romantic dining overlooking the outtauqechee river at Parker House (also worth a google). Feed the kids pizza from Pizza Chef, put on a movie, have all the adults get in the car and take the five minute drive over to Parker House. Enjoy a great french-style gourmet meal, and cocktails. If you like, engage in some lively conversation with Parker House bartender and owner Adam (he was a roadie/audio guy for some famous punk rock bands back-in-the day. And he is not shy talking about it!) Or don't. Enjoy some quiet catching up time with friends and loved ones.
Book my place or someone else's. But come to Quechee and be prepared to fall in love with the place.+ More
