Truly "THE VERMONT EXPERIENCE"
We had a lovely 2 weeks in this delightful home. Setting was beautiful. home warm and inviting, beds very comfortable. and owner concerned and responsive when electricity went out for a couple of hours....typical of Vermont. Centrally located for enjoying all of middle and southern Vermont.
Thanks for your nice review. We are very glad that you enjoyed our home and its beautiful, centrally located setting. Yes, there is much to see and do in our area, and we are happy that you enjoyed visiting friends and seeing the sights despite a little bad weather.
We simply did not want to leave
Upon entering the comfy living room at Humphreys Farm, we already felt at home. By the time we’d passed through the dining room, kitchen, and summer kitchen onto the garden lawn, we knew this would be a special week.
Much of our time was spent under a tree on a flowered terrace overlooking Magic Mountain. We ate most meals outdoors, lingering over the subtly changing view, to the sound of resident Song Sparrows. The well-equipped kitchen and gas grill made it possible for us to eat out only once during our stay.
We’ve long enjoyed Vermont attractions like sightseeing, hiking, theatre, and concerts. We could, however, have so easily whiled away our time simply relaxing in this beautiful, peaceful place, and each day required some little effort to leave in pursuit of those adventures. We enjoyed several nights of stunning stargazing, something we really can’t do in Manhattan. Some cozy evenings in the living room made us think that the fireplace would be delightful in Autumn and Winter.
The warm, welcoming house and picturesque views are simply the essence of Vermont we fell in love with many years ago. We eagerly look forward to coming again.
Thank you, John and Ellen, for your wonderful review! It’s very gratifying for my sisters and me to know that you enjoyed your stay at our home so much. I’m happy that you had good weather and could eat and otherwise enjoy the outdoors so often! Yes, those Mountain views are the reason our father bought the farm in 1934. Our mother was a great gardener, and the many colorful flower beds are in her honor. Yes, isn’t it wonderful that there is so much to do and see in our area! It sounds like you optimized your vacation time, and, yes, please do come back! All best, Kathryn
Beautiful home with incredible views!
We returned to the Humphrey house for the second time and it was exactly as we remembered it. This old farmhouse is beautifully maintained by the owners and has many modern conveniences, such as an adorable kitchen, while retaining many original details. The house has a very warm feeling due to the sense of family history and their obvious love for their home. In addition to the lovely house, you cannot possibly find a more scenic spot in Vermont for a vacation.The house has a sweeping view of the Green Mountains, gorgeous gardens and hay fields, and complete privacy. The location is also great for traveling to nearby local places such as the Londonderry farmer's market, Peru, Jamaica State Park, the Weston theater, and Manchester. We highly recommend this house and hope to return again. Thank you Kathryn!
Jessica, we love our returnees, and you are one I remember well from your last happy stay at our wonderful home! It was so good to have you and your children back again, and we hope that, indeed, you’ll find time for another short visit again this summer. By now you are well acquainted with many of the fun things to do and places to go while in southern VT. As you suggest, there’s a full cornucopia! Thanks for your nice review, and come back soon!
Heaven on earth!
We recently rented this farmhouse for 8 days and could not have been more pleased with our stay. The bucolic setting was far beyond our expectations and conveniently located allowing easy access to most of the major attractions Vermont has to offer. Day trips to Burlington, Woodstock, Middlebury, Queche, Weston, Bennington, and Manchester were easily had with our being able to return prior to dark. Each morning we awoke to different shades of beautiful as the mountains and meadows responded to the changing weather conditions. Rain or shine it was gorgeous!
The house itself added to our overall enjoyment of the experience. While being a stereotypical old Vermont farmhouse in construction, it was very spacious, comfortable, and tastefully decorated throughout. As technology challenged seniors, we initially struggled with how to operate the television. Our gracious host was quick to find someone who could assist us. She could not have been more responsive. Beds were quite comfortable and there was peace and quiet through both the day and night.
If you are looking for nightlife, look somewhere else. If you are looking for getting more in touch with nature or completing your novel, you could not find a better setting.
Dear renters, who came all the way from Texas. About technology, your hostess learned something valuable too about our TV remote...I didn't know about the small ''slide switch'' at the very top that takes you to Direct TV!
Wow, what far-ranging day trips you had. I'm glad that our home was easy to return to each night. And that you found it so charming and comfortable.
Just one thing. I've not done this, but if you seek night life and like the bar scene, downtown there are Jake's and The Mill, and Manchester has a night scene. During ski season the ''night scene'' explodes at Stratton ski area, I've heard tell. But after a very full day of sightseeing I'm sure you were happy to return to the beauty, peace and quiet of Humphreys Farm. Thank you for your kind comments, and we hope you come again to Vermont.
Beautiful antique farmhouse with outstanding views!
I found what I was looking for, a stunning antique Vermont farmhouse with outstanding views!! My two cousins and I could not have found a better house, or a better view! Filled with comfortable antiques and original architectural details throughout it was the perfect vacation house. It was bright and beautiful with light streaming through the original antique hand blown glass windows, every room exudes a sense of history and old country charm. On the practical side, the beds were very comfortable, the kitchen was stocked with just about everything you could possibly need and the shower has excellent water pressure. We were lucky to have exceptional weather and sat outside each morning with our coffee enjoying fabulous views. I recommend visiting the Vermont Country Store in Weston, and also the Bryant House for lunch; Chester has a fabulous antique mall, a great little bookshop and several places to eat. We ate at the Scottish pub which was very good. The village of Grafton is absolutely charming and we ate a great lunch at the MKT, also there is a small but very interesting historic museum across from the MKT. Quechee Gorge is about an hour away but worth the trip. There are several trails in the area but I liked the one next to the bridge that travels down to the bottom of the gorge. There is also an excellent large antique mall in Quechee Village, and an Alpaca store that we loved. Don't miss Woodstock, on the way to Quechee Gorge, probably one of the most beautiful towns in Vermont with lots to see and do! In Londonderry, Jakes restaurant, right down the road from the house, has simple decor and very good food and the New American Grill in the little shopping center was excellent. J.J. Hapgood's General Store in Peru also served a great unch. We went to Stratton Mountain and took the gondola to the peak for awesome views! We rented the first week of October 2017. I would definitely rent this house again and highly recommend it! Terri
Terri, wow, what a review! You captured the essence of our home and some of the multiplicity of fun things to do and see in our area of southern Vermont... north, south and east of our farmhouse. Next time you come (we hope), you must explore to the west, in Peru, Dorset and Manchester.
It's very gratifying to have renters who truly enjoy our house, the main part of which dates from the early 19th century. Of course, we have modernized and updated it over the years without destroying its considerable charm. Our father bought our farm chiefly because of the gorgeous views. Now you have seen why! We're up relatively high and can see the three big ski areas...Magic (direct View), Stratton and Bromley... from our land. The big fields surrounding the house give it privacy, peace and quiet, and closeness to Nature.
Terri, thank you for your appreciation. My two sisters and I sincerely hope that you will be our guests again in the not too distant future!
My husband and I recently spent a week in this wonderful farm home in Londonderry. Everything about our stay was just terrific. The house had every amenity we needed and was extremely comfortable. We had not slept so soundly in such a long time. The icing on the cake was the breathtaking view of the meadows and mountains from the back yard. We took advantage of the available adirondack chairs and with drink in hand, watched the sun set and felt our blood pressure drop. It was as if we took a step back in time and were staying at Grandma's house! Very cozy! The particular location of this home allowed us to explore the many small towns surrounding Londonderry. We had the best Sunday brunch ever at the "Free Range" in Chester. We swam at Hapgood Pond. We went to the Vermont Country Store which is only 10 minutes from the house (and be sure to stop at the pottery store on the way). Bromley and Stratton Mountains are close by and offer plenty of fun activities for the entire family. There are great restaurants and convenience stores right at the bottom of the hill. In particular, the Garden Market was a delight to find in a small town. We definitely recommend this vacation home!!
Thank you, Lynda, for your heartwarming description of your stay at our farmhouse. I particularly appreciate the detailed information you provide about some of the many wonderful things to do and see in our area. That you were able to be out and about so much but also feel relaxed and comfortable while at our house is gratifying. Yes, that fantastic view of mountains and the big valley, the sunrises and sunsets, the open fields... all helped our father so many years ago to choose this property as our family home! It is my two sisters' and my privilege to be able to share it with others.
Vi er meget tæt på Stratton, Bromley, Magic Mountain og Okemo downhill ski områder og flere cross country ski områder. For sommeren og efteråret vacationers, mange sportsgrene er i nærheden: vandreture Appalachian Trail, svømning og og kanosejlads på Lowell Sø og Hapgood Pond, fiskeri Battenkill i Manchester eller Arlington, golf og tennis i Londonderry og Manchester, ridning lokalt. Den Equinox kursted, fremragende North Shire boghandel, So. Vt. Art Center, Hildene palæ (Abe Lincoln søn Robert hjem), rabat shopping outlet center, mange restauranter og en film hus er i Manchester. Antikke butikker bugne i hele området, men jeg kan lide dem i Chester, 15 miles øst for Londonderry. Weston, lige nord for Londonderry, fortjener en hel dags ekspedition, da den er udstyret med den berømte Vermont Country Store, den vidunderlige Weston Playhouse sommer teater og koncertsal, Weston Priory, Farrar Mansur hus, og et par 4-stjernede restauranter. Ud over at vælge legetøj og spil på Vt. Land butik, vil børnene især nyde ovennævnte svømning og picnic spots, Lowell Sø og Hapgood, for ikke at nævne dyrene på Taylor Farm lige vest for Londonderry. Denne gård er også et godt sted at købe ahornsirup og håndværksmæssige oste, hvoraf VT har mange. Børn kan let underholdt og spille sikkert på de store plæner omkring vores gård, men de bør ikke vove sig ind i vores marker uden at bære myggebalsam .. Hele familien vil elske Londonderry s lørdag morgen landmændenes marked, der byder på råvarer og mange andre produkter fremstillet af lokale landmænd og andre håndværkere.
Andre Aktiviteter i området: sightseeing rundt omkring (vores hus har mange flyers og guider til at hjælpe med at planlægge dine ture). Den verdensberømte Marlboro Music Festival er en times kørsel mod syd. Præsident Calvin Coolidge hus er en time mod nord, nær en stor badesø, og den velkendte, dejlige by Woodstock og naturlig undren, Queechee Gorge, er bare en smule længere mod nord. Der er en anden god sommer teater i Dorset. Der er vidunderlige blad-kiggede i efteråret, der kulminerede i begyndelsen til midten af oktober.
NB: Vi lejer om ugen om sommeren og efteråret, men kun med minimum 3 måneder i SKI-SEASONET. Skiløbere kan benytte sig af fire forskellige skiområder i nærheden, men det foretrukne synes at være Stratton eller Bromley bjerge. Vi har rejseguider og flyers i massevis i huset for sommer og efterår lejere (vinter også), og de er ofte opdateret. For mere detaljerede oplysninger om flere populære pletter, udforske "gogobot" site på vores liste. Der har jeg beskrevet flere højdepunkter i nærområdet, herunder nogle af vores foretrukne steder at besøge, sport og shopping steder og restauranter.
Hvis du er på ferie, anbefaler jeg tilbragt en dag i Manchester, en anden i Weston. Folk nyder Grafton og Chester også. Selvfølgelig nogle mennesker bare nyde at bo hjemme og nyder vores hus, græsplæner, haver og vidunderlig udsigt. Vores skiløbere nød bare deres syvende vinter i træk (2016-17), fordi de elsker huset så meget. Huset er til rådighed for skisesæsonen 2018-19. Vi har også sommer tilbagevendte og en gæstebog fuld af 5 stjernede anmeldelser. Lokale ejendomsmæglere har fortalt os, at vores hjem er et af de smukkeste steder i hele sydlige VT. Du er sikker på at finde fred og ro i et charmerende hus på en smuk gård, med mange bøger, kunst, antikviteter og et flygel. ELLER du kan vælge at deltage i mange lokalt tilgængelige sport og udforske området, som er fyldt med mange sjove ting at gøre og se. Plus gode steder at spise. Kom nyde vores ejendom og smukke sydlige VT.
