About Ted & Betsy Newcomb

Betsy and I lived in and loved the Mount Snow Valley and its people for 10 years prior to our move south as a pastoral family. We knew this would be the location of our future retirement home where our grown family and all our friends could comfortably gather to renew relationships and build new found community. As the sign says in the living room, 'Friends are the family you find along the way.' We hope you'll discover such warmth in this place.

Betsy and I are Massachusetts natives (Amherst & Braintree respectively). We met at college at the University of Massachusetts, setting our eyes on the future. Married one week after graduating, I then continued with my graduate degree in the area of Pastoral Ministry within a progressive denomination. Betsy's field has been greenhouse management. We take a rather pragmatic view of life, raising 3 kids to love the simple pleasures and to revel in the out of doors.It is one of the reasons our hearts leaped when we discovered the property only 11 miles from where we once lived. We knew it was the right place for our future home. And in 2010, construction got underway to fulfill a very big dream that we've long shared.

Ted & Betsy Newcomb purchased this house in 1993

Why Ted & Betsy Newcomb chose West Wardsboro

As previously noted, we are outdoor people who love the environment and revel in the unique beauty of all the changing seasons. Each has a character uniquely its own. The wetland behind the house is an active ecosystem that enthralls visitors. Between activity in the pond, the interplay of color and shadows, floral beauty, a very dark night sky where the Milky Way band leaps out at you, and easy access to the two incredible mountains and their amenities just around the corner along with all the lakes and trails for outdoor enthusiasts, this is about as good as it gets in our mind's eye!

What makes this house unique

When preparing to build, we fell in love with a special design. It melded Betsy's dream of a Country Farm House with a lovely front porch with my vision of a hybrid Colonial. While we employed skilled framers and other trades people do what they do best, we (along with family and so many friends) have labored countless hours to finish interior and exterior to our liking. It has taken two years to get to this point often working just 1-1/2 days per week save for vacation time, but slowly the dream has been realized. Now we are pleased to share it with you!

Great stay near Mt Snow

  • 4 of 5

Our group had a great stay at Ted & Betsy's property. The house was conveniently near Mt Snow and right off Rt 100 but still felt very private. It was very clean, comfortable and well equipped with the amenities you'd need and expect. Sleeps many without feeling cramped too. You can tell the house is still a work in progress as some things, like the wall behind the basement bar, have not been finished but still is completely usable. Would make for a great rental any time of year, especially with the pond at the bottom of the hill and the fire pit off the deck.

Owner's Response: So glad your group had a wonderful stay. As outlined in the guest information packet and in the HomeAway info, we are in the process of completely finishing the walk out basement Rec Room. Planning to install brick behind the bar, acid stain and seal the concrete floor, and install a suspended ceiling on the pool table end with recessed section over the table (ceiling is 10' high) and certainly not your everyday basement. Definitely a place for all seasons. Looking forward to your return.

Beautiful Home and Property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Ted and Betsy's beautiful home in West Wardsboro. The house felt new and was incredibly clean upon our arrival - it was ready to go! There was plenty of room for all of our guests, including a basement and living room that served as entertainment areas. The house boasts a beautiful view of the sunrise and was perfectly in between both Mt. Snow and Stratton. Ted and Betsy provided excellent service and were communicative throughout the rental process. We are already looking forward to our next long weekend in Vermont. Thanks so much!

Beautiful , Clean, Spacious, home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful Christmas staying at this house. Reviewing the photos before hand I knew this was the house for my family and we were not disappointed! The owners were wonderful. Although the weather (mostly rain),was disappointing we were so glad to have a nice clean, warm home to come back to after skiing. The mountain is only 5 mins. away and entering Mt. Snow from the north end was perfect since we never had any traffic and always got a close parking spot. Plenty of ski rentals,restaurants and markets nearby are another plus. This home and the surrounding area has so much to offer.

Fantastic location - great golf weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here. Ted is a really nice guy and was easy to work with when getting everything ready to head up there. The house had plenty of room for our group. The pool table / bar area was great the first rainy night. The second night, we had a great time taking in the crazy Vermont sky at the fire pit. It was a little early for golf, but the Mt. Snow course was open and we had a great time there as well. Highly recommended - great place to stay in the area.

Four season, outdoor enthusiast's paradise. Just 3 miles north of Mount Snow's north entrance (no traffic). Stratton is only 11 miles NW. Very fine restaurants (Dover Forge) and pubs (Valley View Saloon) in West Dover & Wilmington await your discovery. Somerset Reservoir (the largest body of impounded water within VT) is nearby...a total wilderness experience on 11 mile lake. Kayakers...don't miss! Challenging golf courses with grand vistas at Haystack, Mount Snow and Stratton. Cross Country Ski/Snowshoe at Timber Creek or create your own trails in our adjacent National Forest. Appalachian Trail just 5 miles away. Foliage in the region is unparallelled generally from the final week of September through the 2nd week of October. Relax, Re-create, Reflect!

Notes:
A couple of moose ambled through the Beaver Pond in late Sept. 2012. You'll see a picture on our site to prove it. We've also been entertained by the beaver population in the pond. And a local black bear and cub have made their way along the back side of the house on their way to the pond. Can you say tranquility? To sit out back on the deck some 15' above the yard and feel the peace...priceless! Hike in nearby woods. Behold the expanse of the Milky Way in the dark Night Sky. Have ease of access to Mount Snow from the 'traffic lite' north side just 3 miles away. Enjoy the best that Vermont woodlands has to offer. For on site massage, contract with Marci Himelson with Mount Snow Massage (802) 464-5602. For on site sitters, contract with Deerfield Valley Sitters (802) 490-4729.
