Our parents bought the farm in the middle of the Great Depression. For 20 years we dairy farmed the property. We three sisters are now the owners. There are four grandchildren of the original owners, and four great grandchildren. The sisters and their families all live off-site but use the home as a vacation spot too. For that reason, it is kept in very good condition, with improvements added each year, and the house's charm and amenities have been preserved. We all grew up on the farm and were largely educated in the area. I, Kathryn, the eldest sister, am the renter contact, and my younger sister, Judith, is our treasurer.

Kathryn Phelps purchased this farmhouse in 1934

Just a quick look at our visitors' guest book and its many 5 star reviews gives a good overview of the reasons to choose our property for your vacation. The mountain and valley views are spectacular; the two hundred year old classic farmhouse colonial house is charming ( with several large, sunny rooms), as is the property itself, a mixture of wide lawns, lovely flower beds, huge fields and pastures and a picturesque woods. THe house is furnished with antiques, Oriental rugs, art and books that belong to the family, and the kitchen and dining facilities are very well equipped. Outside there is a picnic area that features our best view of Magic Mt. There are many recreational, shopping, and tourist sites in the area, and the house is furnished with guide books and other tourist information. Please look at our enthusiastic renter reviews for trustworthy reactions to this great location..

Location, location, location. Tons to do. Good restaurants, museums, recreation, shopping, antiquing, tourist sites. Wonderful privacy at an uniquely charming house and gorgeous rural property. Good amenities and well-kept house and landscape that features lovely gardens as well as a spectacular views. We have DSL as well as satellite TV. It's a perfect place to kick back and relax, or shop, go antiqueing, or to the theater, good restaurants and museums. Several popular tourist sites are within easy driving distance. Sports, such as swimming, hiking, tennis, golf, canoeing and horseback riding are available nearby. Finding a property with such a combination of warmth, charm and beauty is rare. Our father was smitten by the property's mountain views in 1934, and we-- his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren-- have taken pleasure for 20 years now in sharing our love of the property with our renters. ALL 3 MAJOR SKI AREAS--Magic, Stratton & Bromley-- CAN BE SEEN FROM OUR WOODLOT to the west of house, and it has nice trails for walking or cross country skiing..Magic is our lovely view from the front yard. .

Our wonderful stay @ the Humphrey House

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 26, 2006
  • Stayed: Nov 2006
My family and I spent a long weekend at the Humphrey house at the beginning of November. This home exceeded our expectations in every way. I would not call this house a "rental" it was a Home!

There were so many rooms and such beautiful fine points to look at in each room. We spent a great deal of our time in front of a roaring fire in the large comfortable living room. The size of the home was perfect for our family. Our nephew had a wonderful time exploring all the rooms, opening and closing the numerous doors. The rooms were snug and comfy especially the bedrooms and the TV room.

My family and I were delighted with the cleanliness of the home. The kitchen was perfect for cooking all our meals, it had every kind of appliance we needed, and there was even an outdoor gas grill.

The grounds were beautiful with the mountain range in the background, they were perfect for flying a kite and taking long walks.

It was a peaceful, relaxing weekend get-away that was made even more pleasant by the kindness and generosity of the owners.

We wanted to stay someplace with the kids that was relaxing, but also a place to be busy also. The house was immaculate, spacious and beautiful views. My favorite part of the trip was each night after our full day of activities, sitting in the livingroom by the fire, that I built myself and reading, listening to music or staring at the fire. Each morning I got up sat with my cup uf coffee outside and enjoyed the beautiful view of the mountains.
Owner's Response: we look forward to your family,s return visit next summer, as you told me at the end of your stay. it's gratifying when renters enjoy their visit so much that they want to come back. kathryn phelps for humphreys farm

It was a real joy to be in your house in Vermont

Dear Kathryn,
I want to thank you again; it was a real joy to be in your house in Vermont. It is a special place and we all had a splendid week there. We went out a bit - Hapgood Pond, Weston, a local fair, but mainly we were happy at home in your place. We read on the lawn, gazing at the mountains as much as reading. Our little city boy loved running barefoot in the grass, his whole body showing his happiness and sense of freedom. He found a little frog, which hopped into his hands, and he held very still and watched with fascination. Also found grasshoppers and crickets. A real high point for him was watching the mowing, turning, baling of hay, being a big fan of big machines. My kids all loved it there and expressed the hope that we could return for two weeks next summer.

Hi Kathryn, We had a great week, wonderful temps for hiking and biking! We went to Hapgood Pond yesterday afternoon ((one of the warmer days), and that was beautiful! We also went to Lowell lake, and walked the trail around it....the buildings are still there from the abandoned camp! It is only raining today...the cloudy days were actually nice for biking. We rode for 2 hours UP Forest road 10.....very interesting. Luckily it was much faster down!
We love your house, and would love to come again! We ate dinner almost every night looking out over the gorgeous view. Thank you, and I enjoyed speaking with you about your house, and all the history.

"Une belle maison dans un magnifique emplacement"

Nous n'avons que de bons mots pour cette authentique et magnifique maison de campagne. Nous l'avons louée une semaine durant le mois de juillet 2013. Nous étions quatre : deux adultes et deux adolescentes en provenance de Montréal. La vue panoramique sur la montagne est à couper le souffle. On a vraiment l'impression d'être tout seul au monde. Il y a peu de voitures qui passent dans le coin, donc les nuits sont silencieuses. Malgré cet éloignement, il ne faut pas beaucoup de temps pour se rendre de Londonderry vers les différents points d'intérêt, par exemple, Manchester, Brattlebaro et Bennington. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié notre visite au Mont Stratton et au Mont Equinox. Lorsqu'il faisait très chaud, nous allions nous baigner à la petite plage située à Peru. Par chance, il n'y avait pas beaucoup d'insectes. La maison est très grande et confortable. Mme Phelps, la propriétaire, était très disponible. On l'a appelée à notre arrivée pour qu'elle nous aide à établir la connexion Internet. En somme, tout s'est bien passé, pas de mauvaises surprises. Que du bon temps!!!
