A leading Vermont destination community, Quechee Lakes is famed for its award-winning, four-season Quechee Club along with luxury townhomes and distinctive single-family homes built on 5,200 acres in picturesque hills above the Ottauquechee River Valley.
At the heart of Quechee Lakes is the The Quechee Club, which recently underwent a major $7 million expansion and renovation, including fitness facility upgrades and the enclosure of part of the outdoor deck for year-round use.
For the Quechee Club membership—which includes all Quechee Lakes property owners—there is a stimulating roster of amenities. The list is topped by two championship golf courses, plus a wide variety of winter sports, outdoor tennis and indoor squash courts and abundant outdoor recreational activities for adults and children.
Designed by Geoffrey Cornish, the two golf courses ramble through splendid terrain, accentuated by dramatic finishing holes that have earned accolades from Golf Digest, Golfweek and Vermont Golf magazines. The Highland Course plays 6,765 yards from the back tees with a combination of gently rolling and elevated, tree-lined fairways along with rock walls and bunkers.
The Lakeland Course measures approximately 6,570 yards from the back set of tees and presents a links-style design that incorporates trees, bunkers and water features. A long stretch of the Ottauquechee River runs through the course.
Summer Idyll, Winter Wonderland
It doesn’t get any better than Quechee Lakes for winter sports, beginning with downhill skiing at nearby resorts like Killington, Okemo and Ascutney. There are a miles of trails for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, as well, and snowboard runs to suit everyone from first-timers to experts.
Once you’re off the slopes and trails, Quechee Club facilities include an indoor pool and squash court. Or take an afternoon for backcountry snowmobiling or snow tubing or the ever-popular horse-drawn sleigh rides—a bit of romance amid winter’s chill.
Quechee and its immediate area are home to galleries, shops, museums, restaurants and performing arts centers. Quechee Lakes is a 15-minute drive from the historic villages of Woodstock, Vermont and Hanover, New Hampshire.
