About Peter & Claudia Clark


We are Peter & Claudia Clark. We moved to Walden in 1979. Although we are natives of North central Massachusetts, we have never regretted moving to this lovely place.

Far View Tree Farm is located across the road from our residence and was purchased by us in November 2006. Our primary reason for purchasing this property was to keep it from being subdivided and developed into residential properties. The trees and wood lot had been neglected for several years, and the cottage was in need of major repairs. The trees are now under professional management, and major remodeling on the cottage is complete. Although we did not have plans to rent the property, we thought it appropriate to share the beauty of this place with others. We hope you will consider staying at Far View Tree Farm.

Please feel free to email, phone or write us with any questions you have. We'll be happy to help.

Thanks for your interrest, and have a great day!

Peter & Claudia Clark purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Peter & Claudia Clark chose Northeast Kingdom

The Most Perfect Place to Relax and Enjoy Nature

  • 5 of 5

This place is so beautiful. There was snow on the ground when we got there and it snowed a little more each day which only added to the beauty of the farm. We walked all over the christmas tree farm and through the woods every day with our labs. It is so peaceful, you can stand on the hill in the morning as the sun rises or in the late afternoon as the sun sets and you don't hear a sound other than a bird chirping. The cottage is rustic and unique but also has everything you would need. There are plenty of nearby towns and villages for shopping and dining out. You can snow shoe, cross country ski and snow mobile on trails all around the farm. The owners are very gracious and made us feel welcomed and at home right away. Our dogs enjoyed the week as much as we did and when it came time to leave there were a lot of sad faces. We will definitely go back to vacation at the tree farm again. Our Christmas tree this year is from the farm and every day I look at it and remember the most perfect vacation in Vermont!!!

A fun filled family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Bringing the family together for the fun gatherings we enjoy is ever more challenging as we are all working and spread between the UK and USA.

This Walden cottage provided the perfect relaxed and flexible location we needed.

The owners had kindly thought out every household item and supplies us far flung travellers would need which meant we settled right in to our holiday without having to seek out shops for basics straightaway.

Holiday games have become an annual must and the owner didn't question that we had "rearranged" his out doors into a volley ball court and set out a camp golf ground as priority soon after our arrival.

Indeed the owner's welcome and attentiveness from the outset really showed us they wanted us in their property and using it so we had the break we wanted.

Of course, in turn we respected that we were on a working tree farm and indeed we felt privileged having that opportunity. We wandered the set paths marvelling at the nature we saw - so much so in fact that we bought a special wild flower guide for the very many plants we came across which as Scots (mainly) we did not recognise.

The house and its surrounds would have easily fulfilled our entire holiday needs. However, we also discovered just how much there was around us in easy reach which we just could not miss - the farmer's market in Hardwick where we bought Birch syrup and now regret that we did not buy more to bring home; the Vermont Place and Buffalo Mountain restaurants in Hardwick for delicious food, Burlington for shops and a sail on the lake; the Cabot Cheese factory (friendly and plenty of free samples to try), maple shacks and Stowe for breakfast, minigolf and a cable car ride to a craft market.

Did we have a good holiday - most definitely. Might we return - without doubt.

Thank you Peter and Claudia for your genuine kindness and warm hospitality.

Perfect Getaway ~ Tranquility Among the Trees

  • 5 of 5

When my boyfriend and I arrived we couldn't believe our eyes where this cottage was located the middle of a Christmas tree farm. Talk about relaxation and quiet - we couldn't get enough. We also sat outside in the Andirondack chairs at night, turned off all the cottage lights and sat back and saw more stars then I have ever seen - we even saw shooting stars and a satellite - very cool! I was taken with how this place felt and looked like a little french cottage inside - homey and open - with well thought out amenities - such as satellite TV, music, pots/pans, seasonings, tin foil/plastic wrap, dishes, a very good dishwasher, microwave, stove, fridge with an ice maker, games, books as well as 2 full bathrooms and a washer/dryer with all the supplies. We did not need to get anything except our own food - it was great to have the "home away from home" feel (as the website suggests). We loved the little ceramic fire place outside and used it nightly. The cottage is extremely clean - which even my boyfriend appreciated - and smelled new (wood). Finally, the owners, Peter and Claudia, are extremely friendly and full of information about the house and grounds. They stopped by on their 4 wheeler off road vehicle with blankets (yes, they WERE needed that nite) and they informed us of areas to go on the property - such as the walk thru the tree farm to the picnic table on the hill under the oak tree along with tiki torches and 2 gravity chairs - all to watch the sunset go down behind the mountains - it was breathtaking. Then there's the sitting area and dock by your own private pond where they provide a small row boat, oars, chairs on the sitting area and a dock w/ladder if you want to swim. You can also fish or just sit by the water. They also assured us they were around - via phone or email - if we had any issues or questions otherwise they stated that they would leave us alone and enjoy our stay - and they did just that - we never saw them but I knew they were there if we needed anything (live in house across the street and diagonal from cottage but you're not able to see anyone or anything with the trees around us. We will definitely make this a place we visit again.

Wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely property was homey, warm, inviting, and had everything we needed, down to BandAids and coffee filters. The pond out front was relaxing, and watching the wildlife more entertaining than TV (sorry, Peter!). My husband said it was the most relaxing vacation he has ever taken. Great biking off dirt roads in the Northeast kingdom. Mountain bike was a better bet than a roadie, but excellent and safe riding either way. And views that went on forever. A wonderful property from kind people. I left a shirt behind and the kind owners promptly mailed it to me, which was much appreciated. Highly, highly recommend!

Exactly what we needed

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our 3 night 4th of July getaway here, and it was exactly what we needed! We are a family of four: my husband and I, our 3 year old son and 9 month old daughter. The house was cozy and comfortable for the 4 of us. But the best part was that it was secluded, quiet, and had absolutely gorgeous views on all sides! Our son loved going down to the pond to skip rocks and hear his "ECHO!" I loved lounging in the yard overlooking the pond. The view from the top of the property is outstanding! It is so quiet that both kids slept so soundly all three nights we were there. The owners are very friendly and greeted us when we got there (and left us some Cabot cheese, crackers, and maple syrup upon arrival)! This was one of the most relaxing getaways we have had since having kids. Because we had a kitchen that had everything we needed to cook, we didn't have to worry about meals for the kids as it was just as good as being at home! We visited the Cabot factory only an 8 mile drive from the cottage, did a kid-friendly and very beautiful hike at Barr Hill Nature Preserve only 10 miles from the cottage, and visited the museum and planetarium at nearby St. Johnsbury. Overall, it was an excellent trip and perfect for relaxing and taking in the beauty of Vermont!

Oustanding Long Weekend, Surrounded by Snow

  • 5 of 5

We headed up to the Tree Farm a couple days after a big snow storm, and before another was supposed to hit the next day. Roads were well plowed/salted and the cabin address (the cabin was not visible from the road) was easy to find in my Garmin.

There was one big (snow covered) hill that we had to get over in the pathway to the house, which our 2WD (RWD) Jeep could not make it over. We ended up struggling for a bit until just deciding to move the car back to the front of the drive way. No luck. But thankful for us, there was Peter! He tried to pull us up the hill with his truck, then eventually just out of the near-ditch where we had settled with his (new) tractor. We felt terrible (what a way to make a first impression!), but it was great to know how helpful our hosts would be.

Their outgoing nature persisted throughout our 5-day stay. Peter routinely plowed the paths around the cabin, gave us excellent tips on where to go in the area, and even let us take a quick ride around the farm on his snowmobiles. He was always available if we needed him (his house is visible on the opposite side of the road...maybe 1/6th of a mile away from the cabin), but we always felt like we had all of the privacy we needed in the cabin. The first thing Peter said to me (after saving our car) was "This is your house." The house was just what we needed for two couples. We each had a bedroom, and shared a bathroom for showering (only shower is upstairs). There is a laundry area and kitchen, both fully stocked. There were plenty of linens, towels, cleaning supplies, laundry necessities, etc. The only thing we had to provide was food, and even that included a little surprise, as there was a little basket of VT cheese and syrup on the dining area table when we walked in.

Cross-country skiing (from Peter and Claudia's suggestion) was about a 30 minute drive away (vice the nearest downhill skiing about an hour away). The cabin is right off of a frequented snowmobile trail, which we saw go by frequently during the day, and occasionally even when the sun had set.

It was an amazing getaway and we hope to do it again.
