One of five unincorporated villages in the town of Hartford, Quechee is known for many phenomenal things, i.e., a picturesque covered bridge, Quechee Gorge, and Quechee State Park, just to name a few. The covered bridge still stands at the site of the old Quechee Mill which now houses the Simon Pearce glass-blowing facility and restaurant. The bridge was severely damaged due to flooding caused by Hurricane Irene in 2011 but has since been rebuilt. Next you will find Quechee Gorge which is one mile long, 165 feet deep, being the deepest gorge in VT. It was formed by glacial activity approximately 13,000 years ago. It is a narrow gorge on the Ottauquechee River (whitewater kayak run). Having walking/hiking trails on both sides of the gorge, swimming areas, and picnicking, many people flock here for the unbelievable views. The locals call it “Vermont’s Grand Canyon.” Quechee State Park, with spacious campsites, also within close proximity to the Upper Valley, is a very popular spot for visitors to relax and take in the natural beauty of the area. Wonderful camping, with cold running water and clean sites can be found in the Park. Once you have seen the majestic surroundings, unique shops will peak your curiosity to come in and browse. The Quechee Gorge Village Vermont Antique Mall, Simon Pearce Mill (glassware), Route 4 Glassblowing Studio, and the Vermont Toy Museum (a trip down memory lane) are only some of the delightful shops you will find. You must be hungry by now! Restaurants and snack bars serving great food are in abundance in Quechee. This is a MUST SEE village when you are in Vermont!
