About Lisa and John Ryan
We are Lisa and John from Massachusetts and we discovered the magic of Quechee in 2000. Our original plan was to enjoy the spectacular winter season offerings with our two young children so they could learn how to ski. The wonderful learn to ski program at Quechee ski school worked wonders. Soon mom and dad were left in the dust! (or powder) Once we began to get a taste of the other three amazing seasons we realized this was where we wanted to own so we purchased a tiny Quechee condo. Soon we were making the run north nearly every weekend, holiday and school vacation. The limitless options of outdoor activities kept us busy and truly instilled a love of the outdoors in our children. We sold our condo and built our Quechee home in 2006.
Lisa and John Ryan purchased this House in 2006
Why Lisa and John Ryan chose Hartford
After enjoying our small condo for a few years we learned that the top of the ski hill was without a doubt the best location in Quechee. It afforded our family so much freedom and flexibility each day on the slopes. When we decided to build our home we knew it had to offer the same easy access to skiing. We built our home in 2006 and it has proven to be the best decision ever.
What makes this House unique
Our southern exposure, nine-foot ceilings and lots of windows make our home so bright and sunny all day long. The large finished walkout basement makes our property incredibly attractive to families with children since it features a game room and large flat screen TV. One of our unexpected pleasures of our home is the backyard. We discovered how special it is after moving in. Since our lot has a significant slope we were pleasantly surprised by the feeling of sitting in the upper branches of the surrounding trees when relaxing on the deck. With the addition of a rustic fire pit last year our evening smores parties have become a regular part of our day. One of our family's passions is fly fishing so you will quickly notice a lot of fly fishing themed art gracing the walls. We are also happy to share some of the best local fishing hot spots as well!

Perfect foliage weekend in Quechee
Our stay at Lisa and John's home could not have been any more perfect! The home is so lovely and cozy, and was such a joy to return to every day after exploring the area. A fully stocked kitchen, luxurious bedding, and a wonderful fire pit made it better than any top hotel in the area! The home is ideally situated in Quechee and is a perfect home base from which to explore the area, particularly via the beautiful winding country roads all around. Communication with the host was superb- Lisa offered a wide range of recommendations for the area, and checked in before, during, and after the stay to ensure our stay was pleasant. Such a lovely weekend, and we look forward to returning one day!
Dartmouth Family Weekend Trip
Very nice property - spacious, clean and well appointed. The owners were extremely responsive and easy to work with. Great stay.
Lovely home tucked in the woods.
We had a wonderful family stay in this home. The owners were very easy to work with, responsive to questions and have taken great care of this property.
This property is in an ideal location. The house is beautiful and perfect for families. The owners are thoughtful - providing toiletries and other items do you felt like you were at home. The kitchen is great. We particularly enjoyed our ability to use the Quechee club.
Thank you so much, it was great to have you as guests. It makes us happy that others get to make happy memories in our sweet little home.
Amazing Property, Amazing Owners!
We can't say enough about our stay at the Ryan's home in Quechee. The house is beautiful, immaculate (beyond clean), every amenity is available and the owners go above and beyond providing useful information in advance of the trip (recommendations on things to do, places to visit, etc.), and remaining available and in touch as necessary during the stay. We'd not only recommend the home to anyone looking to stay in the area, but are very much looking forward to the opportunity to return.
Thank you so much! You were dream guests. I loved receiving the pictures of your adorable kids having fun. It makes us so happy to see families getting to enjoy the magic of Quechee the way we did with our kids. Would love to have you back anytime.
Perfect for A Young Family of 5
The property is updated, simple & elegant, warm and cozy. There was plenty of space for the five of us (three young kids) with the kitchen dining area, family room, and basement the most popular areas to hang out. The garage to mud room entrance was perfect in the winter months. Short drive to skiing and the Club, on a quiet dead end street.
The area has many grocery and dining options. Quechee seems set up for families with young kids - movie nights, daily activities, and an amazing ski school with about a 1:2 instructor:student ratio during our stay. It was like a week of family camp.
Lisa was wonderful with communication, and went above and beyond tracking down and sending us the treasured lovie one of our little guys left behind.
Highly recommend this property.
Thank you so much. So happy you had a wonderful stay. And thank you for being such thoughtful guests and taking such good care of the home.
Hiking Mount Tom in Woodstock and kayaking the White River (just minutes away) are some of our families all time favorites. Also the Montshire Museum in nearby Hanover NH is a must see.
