Water activities (Pool & Lake) at Quechee

If winter is about skiing, then summer is all about the water at Quechee…

Quechee Club boasts a huge, heated outdoor pool (and baby pool) for a summertime splash.

After my daughter learned how to ski this winter, she’s now ready to take on swimming.  During our week-long stay, she took a few lessons – and again, can’t stress enough how much of a breakthrough the ski lessons were.  One year ago, we signed up for swim lessons at the local YMCA back home – we never made it in the pool – despite showing up every Saturday.  Maya just wouldn’t go in… maybe it’s her age, but I personally think it’s the confidence she gained from conquering her fears in the ski lessons.  Not to mention the amazing Quechee Club staff.  Susan was her swim instructor – over a few lessons, Maya conquered her fear of “letting go” and has progressed to jumping in by herself.  Now, she’s starting to swim without her floaties, not afraid to put her head under water… it’s amazing.

Maya even swam from the beach to the buoy in Lake Pinneo all by herself (with floaties of course)… and her little brother Owen – he just wants to do everything that she does ; ).  He followed us out to the buoy.  I feel like the lifeguards and other parents thought we were crazy with our 2 & 4 year olds swimming 100 yds out – but they LOVED it.  These kids have no idea how good they have it!

We also rented kayaks & paddle boats – $15 for 2 boats for an hour – what a bargain!  And explored Lake Pinneo… just an awesome family adventure…
