About Richard Van De Boom

We have been the stewards of Reading Farms for almost 30 years and the property has been in our family for over a 100 years, we are proud of the property and hope you will enjoy it as well.

Richard Van De Boom purchased this estate in 1900

Why Richard Van De Boom chose Woodstock

Reading Farms is one of the signature properties in Vermont, the property has been featured in Architectural Digest along with House Beautiful. Reading Farms is ideal for large family reunions and corporate retreats as we have so many spaces to meet or disappear ;)

What makes this estate unique

Reading Farms is 100% completely private estate, once you are here there is no reason to leave, Reading Farms has everything you could ask for. Complete with our own helipad so you never have to touch the streets.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Stacy and team,



Its hard to believe that its all over. Bill and I cannot express to you how perfect your home was for our event. You were so helpful and responsive throughout the entire process which eased my mind every step the way. Mark and Debbie were so wonderful and took care of all our needs. All your recommendations, Worthy Catering, The Little Flower Shop, Bentley's, etc. made the event magical and exactly what we had dreamed of. If other guests of yours choose to get married in the barn these are the people to call. The food was by far the best I have ever had at a wedding...and at a lot of restaurants for that matter. Its amazing what they accomplished in that kitchen. Randy and Edward transformed the barn into a winter wonderland. They are a hidden gem in Woodstock (maybe not so hidden to you but I would have never imagined their level of expertise). I will be sending along some pictures soon.

Many of our guests were in awe of your antiques, art, and overall design. I have already passed along your contact information to a family friend who hopes to rent from you as well. We hope that this is not the last time we work with you as Reading Farms will always hold a very special place in our hearts.



Thank you and your team for everything you have done for us.



Happy New Year.



Taiyo & Bill :)

Private, peaceful, paradise

  • 5 of 5
The property is beautiful. Great for large gatherings, plenty of room to spread out. Loved the hot tub by the gazebo and the fish pond! Enjoyed the theater room, especially the massage chairs. The barn setup was great for spreading out as well. Fireworks display was very impressive, thanks. We enjoyed visiting Woodstock, Quechee, Long Trail and Harpoon breweries and King Arthur Flour.
We would highly recommend this property. Stacey did a great job and was very accommodating. Thanks for the arrival cookies and wine!

Heavenly Beds!

  • 5 of 5
My family of 32 just stayed at Reading Farms and all of the reviews rave about the beauty of the place but no one speaks of the important things like beds rooms sheets bathrooms. The property is breathtaking first of all but the beds are a dream, my kids slept in the room with the bunk beds and I cringed because if they do not sleep well we all pay for it the next day but the beds were amazing all had feather beds on top of thick mattresses with very soft and clean sheets. When we take our annual family reunion the houses never have enough bowls or plates so we mix and match or buy paper plates, this property had 4 sets of plates with at least 40 of everything which was really nice. One nice thing about the place are the 3 downstairs bedrooms which my elderly mother stayed so she could avoid the stairs. You can be together with all 32 people or you could vanish for hours on this property which is really nice, usually a house that sleeps so many has everyone in 5 bedrooms but not here there were bedrooms everywhere. The house was extremely clean and well maintained and I was looking for something to complain about. I rarely give my 5th star as no place is perfect but so far this place has come the closest so I give my coveted 5th star! Oh and by the way the firework show is amazing!

Owner's Response: Thank you Randy. We really pride ourselves on making sure every bed is as comfortable as the next, so we purchased all new mattresses, featherbeds and 800 tc sheets for the entire house and made sure they would all pass the test so Im very happy you were pleased. We sleep up to 41 so we made sure there were enough plates glasses etc for every guest and the downstairs bedrooms have become the "parents" rooms this summer which has saved many walks up the stairs.Thank you again for your review we truly hope to see you and your family back next summer!

AMAZING!!!!

  • 5 of 5
The perfect place for our family reunion/vacation! Everything was spectacular, from the house, the grounds and the staff. We even had an amazing fireworks show after we were served a delicious dinner set up for us on the front lawn. It doesn't get much better that this! Thank you Stacy, Richard and staff for a truly memorable experience. Expect us to return. Vincent

A Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had our eleventh family vacation this year, and it was our first time at Reading Farms Estate. There were 26 of us. Everyone rated this vacation at or near the top in every category. Most of all, we appreciated the unparallelled hands-on attention from the owner.

The first day, we were greeted with smiles and lots of chocolate chip cookies. And one night, the chef prepared a fantastic dinner, complete with great appetizers and desserts. On July 4, we were treated to a wonderful fireworks display on site, ending with applause from all in the audience.

The grounds were beautiful, and many hours were spent playing in the giant lawn just in front of our large home. As a bonus, we were able to go a short distance to the quaint little towns of Woodstock and Quechee for dining and shopping. All in all, it was a wonderful experience for everyone.

Thanks, Stacy and Rich!

Our stay at Reading Farms was complete BLISS!

  • 5 of 5
The grand entry gate and the long drive way leading up to the home really builds up your anticipation to see the home and property and we were not dissapointed at all! We really loved walking on the property and seeing the breath taking views! Reading Farms is such a beautiful home full of history and intriguing art work. You must check out the library, such an amazing display of classics and a cozy space to relax and read. My husband enjoyed feeding the fish in the pond, and how every morning we had a beautiful waterfall scene out our bedroom window. Dinner by candlelight at the dining room table was glorious, and the view of the pool down the lane is so majestic! Woodstock is just a short drive with the quaintest little cafe's with delicious gourmet food. We visited Simon Pearce in Queechee Vt and loved the glass blowing demonstration, we bought the most beautiful wine glasses. We toured a maple syrup and cheese farm, of course we bought delicious samples to bring home for friends and family! Reading Farms in the fall was glorious with all the fall colors! We have already booked our next visit and we can't wait! We definitely recomend this property and have suggested it to many of our friends! Thank you Rich and Reading Farms for providing your home for our family to make such beautiful memories!
