We live in Mansfield, MA, but our favorite place to live is Sugar Hill in Quechee. We found Quechee when we were looking for a vacation home with close proximity to Dartmouth College. Both Andy and his sister went to Dartmouth and enjoyed the area, so we were looking for a place that would work for our families to visit together.

We always refer to our time in Quechee as living in a fairy tale. The Quechee community allows us to escape our busy lives and enjoy time with our family in an amazing setting. With each season of the year, we are surrounded by wonderful activities, food, beer, and people.
