Wenatchee Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description
Farmhouse, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)
The Hampton Hideaway provides an unmatched serene escape from the hustle and bustle of the big city. This was the home of Wilmer Hampton, founder of Mission Ridge Ski and Board Resort and is nestled in a valley of 20 acres of cherry orchards and 600 acres of forest. We have an active cherry orchard and several barn cats (that are not allowed in the home), so please consider any sensitivities or allergies you might have when planning your stay. The Hideaway is located about 6 miles (15 minutes) from the Hampton Lodge at Mission Ridge and about 15 minutes from downtown Wenatchee. Close enough to enjoy the town and far enough to have the out in the country feel.
Enjoy walking through the forest along an old logging road or make your own trail. Climb a hill for a great view of the sunrise. Glide down our sledding hill for some wintertime fun. Taste sweet cherries during our July harvest. Find a quiet spot for a picnic. Gaze upon the deer feeding in the early morning or listen to the owls hooting at night. Enjoy the view of a star-filled sky while relaxing in your private hot tub.
The Hampton Hideaway is furnished with 3 queen beds in separate rooms and 3 twin beds in one room, cotton linens and down blankets. The kitchen is fully equipped with service for 10. A comfortable living room has large screen TV, DVD/ Blu-ray player and complimentary Netflix and wireless internet service.
The 1940’s barn is now available as an event venue. See our web site for more information. The barn and vacation rental make a great country wedding package. We have blocked our summer weekends for weddings, and will open reservations for non weddings later this Spring.
Whether you are planning a family vacation, a quick weekend getaway or are visiting for business, the Wenatchee Valley has an adventure for you. With four distinct seasons, 300 sunshine-filled days a year, a river running through town and mountains so close you can touch them, your stay in Wenatchee Valley will be memorable.
Greg and JoAnn look forward to welcoming you to their home.

About JoAnn Hampton
Greg Hampton was born and raised in Wenatchee. His dad, Wilmer, founded Mission Ridge Ski and Board Resort. Greg is an avid skier and was a ski jumper as a kid. He and JoAnn met while serving as Air Force officers at a US base in England. They were married in her home town in New Jersey. After their active duty tours were over, they settled on the family homestead in the Squilchuck area of Wenatchee.
Greg manages the family orchard and JoAnn is a home health physical therapist. They have four children, two son-in-laws, and three grandchildren.
JoAnn Hampton purchased this farmhouse in 1943
Why JoAnn Hampton chose Wenatchee
This property has been in the Hampton family for over 100 years. The original homestead was built in the early 1900's. The Hideaway was built by second generation Hamptons in the 1940's, with the most recent remodel in 2011. Greg and JoAnn are 3rd generation Hamptons and built their home on the hill over looking the orchards.
What makes this farmhouse unique
Before Greg and JoAnn moved back to Wenatchee, they would visit his Mom who lived in what we now call the Hampton Hideaway. It was always a pleasure to watch the sunrise from the living room. Our children loved having cinnamon toast with Grammie Hampton while the sun came up.
