Second time’s a charm
Our second visit to Humphreys Farm felt more like a homecoming than a vacation trip. We fondly remembered the comfortable, welcoming house in its lovely mountain landscape, where we could relax and unwind. Our stay ended far too quickly, just as it had last year. Once more, we left wishing we could have stayed longer, for another breakfast under the tree, for one more more night under the stars....
John and Ellen, thanks for your kind words! It’s very gratifying to know that you enjoy staying with us so much. I hope that you both feel well rested. And we hope to host you again soon. Best wishes, Kathryn
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!
Estamos muy cerca de Stratton, Bromley, Magic Mountain y Okemo descenso zonas de esquí y varias zonas de esquí de fondo. Para los turistas de verano y otoño, muchos deportes son Senderos de los Apalaches, la natación y el piragüismo y en Lowell Lake y Hapgood estanque, la pesca del Battenkill en Manchester o Arlington, golf y tenis en Londonderry y Manchester, montar a caballo a nivel local. El spa del complejo Equinox, una excelente tienda de libros North Shire, So. Vermont. Art Center, Hildene mansión (hijo de Abe Lincoln Robert de casa), descuento salida de centro comercial, muchos restaurantes y una sala de cine son en Manchester. Las tiendas de antigüedades abundan en toda la zona, pero me gusta los que hay en Chester, a 15 millas al este de Londonderry. Weston, al norte de Londonderry, merece la expedición de un día entero, ya que cuenta con la famosa tienda de Vermont país, el maravilloso teatro de verano y de conciertos teatro de Weston, el Priorato de Weston, Farrar casa de Mansur, y un par de restaurantes de 4 estrellas. Además de elegir los juguetes y juegos en el Vt. tienda de campo, los niños disfrutarán especialmente de la piscina antes mencionada y lugares de picnic, Lowell Lake y Hapgood, por no hablar de los animales en la granja Taylor, al oeste de Londonderry. Esta granja es también un gran lugar para comprar jarabe de arce y quesos artesanales, de los cuales VT tiene muchos. Los niños pueden ser fácilmente entretenidos y jugar con seguridad en los grandes jardines que rodean nuestra casa, pero no deben aventurarse en nuestros campos sin usar repelente de insectos .. Toda la familia le encantará mercado de Londonderry sábado por la mañana los agricultores ', que ofrece productos y muchos otros productos de los agricultores locales y otros artesanos.
Otras Actividades en la zona: Hoteles en todo (nuestra casa tiene muchos folletos y guías para ayudar a planificar sus viajes). El Festival de Música de Marlboro de fama mundial es de una hora en coche hacia el sur. la casa del presidente Calvin Coolidge es una hora al norte, cerca de un gran lago de natación, y el conocido, preciosa ciudad de Woodstock y la maravilla de la naturaleza, la garganta de Queechee, son sólo un poco más al norte. Hay otra buena teatro de verano en Dorset. No es maravillosa la hoja asomando en el otoño, que culminó a principios y mediados de octubre.
NB: alquilamos por semana en verano y otoño, pero solo por un mínimo de 3 meses durante la TEMPORADA DE ESQUÍ. Los esquiadores pueden hacer uso de cuatro diferentes zonas de esquí cerca, pero el favorito parece ser Stratton o Bromley montañas. Contamos con guías de viajes y volantes en abundancia en la casa para los inquilinos de verano y otoño (invierno también), y con frecuencia estamos actualizados. Para obtener información más detallada sobre varios puntos populares, explorar el sitio "gogobot" en nuestra lista. No he descrito varios aspectos más destacados de la zona inmediata, entre ellos algunos de nuestros lugares favoritos para visitar, deportes y lugares de compras y restaurantes.
Si está de vacaciones, recomiendo pasar un día en Manchester, otro en Weston. La gente disfruta de Grafton y Chester también. Por supuesto, algunas personas simplemente disfrutar de quedarse en casa y disfrutar de nuestra casa, césped, jardines y unas vistas maravillosas. Nuestros esquiadores simplemente disfrutaron de su séptimo invierno consecutivo (2016-17) porque les encanta la casa. La casa está disponible para la temporada de esquí 2018-19. También tenemos retornados de verano y un libro de visitas lleno de reseñas de 5 estrellas. Los agentes inmobiliarios locales nos han dicho que nuestra casa es una de las más bellas en todo el sur de VT.
