About Betsy Longstreth
My husband and I live in Philadelphia, PA. We have 3 children and 9 grandchildren. Our whole family loves the outdoors, so we gather here often and enjoy all that Stowe and this wonderful house provide.
Betsy Longstreth purchased this Farmhouse in 2001
Why Betsy Longstreth chose Stowe
My brother who lives in Stowe picked this house out for us. He called me telling me he had found 'my house.' We had not been considering buying a second home - however, he knew he had me with the rural, cozy charm of the farmhouse with its perfect location. He knew another good thing. Owning his own construction company, he was responsible for all of the recent renovations and additions..... so I know the work was done well.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
The house is an iconic part of Stowe - as you drive along Luce Hill Road and look across the fields--the house, the surrounding farm and the mountains and ski slopes in the background form a classic Vermont scene. The charm of the old and new wide-planked floors, the fireplace, the light-filled windows that look out to incredible views, and the simple yet comfortable country style living creates wonderful times for families and friends to enjoy. With its central location, all can head out in different directions whether to the bike path, the mountains, the spa, or town--all just minutes away.

The farmhouse exceded our expectations.
We expected a nice home with modest surroundings that would accomodate our family. We know that pictures don't always tell the truth. However, when we entered the home we were filled with great joy to find it was more than we had hoped for, better than the pictures with everything we needed and accomodated everyone very well. The upgrades to the home made it warm and inviting, especially since we were there at the coldest season of the year. We were thankful that someone came to clear the roads, right up to the home! We had a beautiful, snow white, fun filled Christmas and took with us memories to last a lifetime. Thank you for sharing your home in Stowe!!
Thanks so much! It gives us great joy that you so enjoyed the house and your family time in Stowe!
Great location, wonderful house and owner/host (Betsy). 1800s home discreetly updated.
Beautiful views, close to town and activities. Couldn’t ask for a better vacation for our family of grandparents, daughter/son-in-law and granddaughters.
Beautiful home and property!
Betsey was a fantastic host, and her farmhouse was the perfect place to spend school vacation week. We were very comfortable in her home and enjoyed relaxing by the fire or in the hot tub. My girls loved seeing the deer visit the fields at dusk each night. The house is close to the Trapp Family Lodge, Ben and Jerry’s, skiing, ice skating, restaurants, and all that Stowe has to offer.
Thanks so much for your complimentary review. We are thrilled you had a wonderful visit and family time at the house and at Stowe.
Awesome home for a Stowe family getaway
We rented this home for the Thanksgiving week/weekend and utterly enjoyed our stay. The house was well appointed and setup for our family of 5. The kitchen is well equipped to cook anything you may desire for a large group. Upon arrival, we found the house was very clean, and in very good condition. We loved the tasteful renovations which added an open concept kitchen/living room, but also kept the original house intact and full of Vermont farmhouse character. Betsy (owner) is very responsive to inquiries via email. The location is very convenient to all of Stowe, and less the 10 min to the ski slopes. If you are looking for a house that oozes "Vermont country home", then this is it! We will absolutely be renting this home again in the future. Highly recommended.
We love having great guests who enjoy the house as much as we do.
Harvest moon at the Bouchard Farmhouse
Sometimes in life you get lucky. And we hit the jackpot when we arrived at the Bouchard farmhouse Immaculat, elegant , cozy. Right out of HD TV ! Everything neatly placed in perfect order from silverware in the kitchen draws to the linens and towels in bedrooms & baths. And supplies were plentiful. The house was bigger than I thought providing enough space for a group of ten women from boston celebrating a birthday. The open floor plan was great The gorgeous stone fireplace was cozy and took the chill out. The hot tub Was a gift after hiking & biking all day.
We had front row seats taking in the Mountain View while sitting on the front porch The house is in a great spot. It’s close to everything We walked to dinner at bistro at ten acres. Delicious. I could go on & on. Loved it & will definitely go back.
Lovely home in Stowe
We loved our stay in Stowe and the Bouchard farmhouse was a wonderful home to come back to after a day of hiking or biking. Clean, comfortable, and amazingly cozy. Beautifully decorated. Perfect for 4 couples to enjoy time together on a beautiful setting.
We love having guests that appreciate the house and all the activities Stowe offers. Thanks for your complimentary comments.
