About the property

Log Home, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths with Awesome Mountain Views

Vermont is all about mountains, outdoor life and peaceful, beautiful surroundings. Upon arrival you will find it difficult to leave this one-of-a-kind four bedroom log home in paradise. It has all the ambiance you could wish for....warm and charming with spectacular views and large private spring-fed swimming pond with dock and raft for diving or sunbathing.

This very comfortable, family and pet-friendly home has a large open floor plan with cathedral ceilings in both living room and dining room, massive two-sided stone fireplace, unique 12-person custom pine table in dining area, and spacious loft with additional TV/DVD for the kids. Enjoy mountain views from every room in the house including large picture windows in living, dining and master bedroom. This house comfortably sleeps a maximum of 8 people in four bedrooms; portable beds are available for two additional people at an additional cost of $50 per person per night.

During the summer find yourself relaxing in our adirondak chairs on the expansive lawn or large farmers porch overlooking the large serene spring-fed swimming pond, surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens, spectacular mountain views and sunsets. Gaze into the sky and you will see soaring gliders from nearby Stowe airport, hot air balloons or migrating Canadian geese. In winter, step outside with your snowshoes or cross-country skis onto local trails or enjoy watching your children playing or sledding in the snow. And of course, you can also enjoy some of the best skiing in the East just 20 minutes away at the Mt. Mansfield ski resort, 35 minutes to Smugglers Notch, 45 minutes to Jay Peak and 55 minutes to Sugarbush.

Take a short drive into Stowe Village and indulge yourself in shopping, fine dining and world-class spa facilities. Or travel up the Mountain Road to visit Mt. Mansfield and the new $400 million resort at Spruce Speak at Stowe and experience the new hotel, spa, restaurants and shops, base lodge, 18-hole golf course, and much more. Also visit the newest exciting addition to the community, the recently opened Performing Arts Center at Spruce Peak . In the summer, enjoy many local activities such as the Hot Air Balloon Festival in July, summer concerts, antique car shows and farmer's market. The area also includes nearby well-known breweries such as The Alchemist (home of the famous Heady Topper), Rock Art Brewery and Lost Nation Brewery.

We know that your stay here will be fun, relaxing and memorable for your entire family and friends and you will want to return again to this lovely property in paradise.

About Sandy Farmer

My husband Peter and I grew up in Beverly, Massachusetts. He has always had roots in Vermont, since he and most of his family were born in the Stowe area. In fact his father was on the original crew that built and operated the first ski trails and lifts at Mt. Mansfield. Peter spent many summers and winters in Vermont as a child and eventually became a professional free-style skier in the 70's. Because of his love for Vermont and family connection, he built our wonderful log home on this beautiful property with breath-taking views.

I also had moved to Warren, Vermont in the late 70's where I owned a home with a beautiful horse farm for 15 years. Coincidentally, after many years Peter and I re-met in Stowe during a weekend visit. I later relocated to Massachusetts, and we eventually married with a lovely outdoor wedding at our Vermont home.

Needless to say, Vermont still has a special meaning to the both of us, and we are always reminded of how romantic the area is and how we fell in love every time we are there!

Sandy Farmer purchased this house in 1987

Great Ski Cabin

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends and I rented the Farmer’s home a few years ago and had an amazing time. The house is well equipt and close to the Stowe Ski Resort. We have been going to Stowe every year since but were not able to rent this home. We were so excited to stay here for winter break again. The house was as cozy as we remembered it and the owners were very attentive to our needs.

Perfectly Vermont

  • 5 of 5

We’ve stayed at the Farmer’s Home twice. It has been just what we needed during our stay. Clean spacious and comfortable. Located close to grocery stores and just a short drive to Stowe. Highly recommend this property.

Dream stay in Vermont

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely home with 4 big bedrooms, 2 full baths, a giant fireplace and 2 living areas. Perfect for a family getaway. The view of the Green Mountains is spectacular. The interior is old-fashioned, open post and beam, with country, rustic style. Only drawback is the kitchen - old electric stove whose burner dials are completely worn out so you never know what temperature you're cooking at. Definitely a challenge for foodies like us, but we were able to fix some good meals anyway with no complaints. All in all, a great stay!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Our group of six adults for a birthday celebration had a really lovely time at the Farmer property. The house is comfortable and its view is gorgeous. It is a good location for leaf peeping in all directions -- we went north and west -- and also easy to access from Burlington

Beautiful and relaxing setting, very comfortable and well-equipped home.

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a relaxing family weekend with our two grown children. Morristown, in the summer, was perfect. Although it rained most of the day Saturday, we enjoyed visiting the stellar breweries and a couple great restaurants in the area. I can't say enough about the view from the porch! Absolutely gorgeous!

Wonderful Winter Cabin

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect for our ski weekend getaway. The house has 4 bedrooms, which was great for the 4 couples on our trip. The pictures did not do the house justice. It is an adorable cabin with stunning views. The fireplace was perfect for warming us up after a day on the slopes. The large table was amazing! The only thing I feel I would like to mention with the house is that the beds weren't the most comfortable, as multiple people in our party mentioned that. The other thing was the distance of the house to Stowe mountain. It wasn't an issue for us, but it would have been nice to be a little closer. Overall, we had a great weekend here. I would definitely recommend this rental.

Owner's Response: It is always our goal to make our guests very comfortable in our home and to improve our guests’ experience. Upon receiving and following up on the guest review regarding the beds, she expressed that some of the beds were too firm. In the many years that we have hosted our home, the beds were never an issue and some guests have commented that they were very comfortable. In addition, we do have many repeat guests. In this case, the firmness of a mattress appears to be a matter of personal preference. During our recent trip to our home, we purchased a mattress topper for one of the beds to provide our guests with the option of a less firm mattress. It is our hope that this issue will not prevent future guests from choosing our home and missing out on the wonderful experience our property offers our guests with its serene surroundings, spectacular mountain views and relaxed atmosphere of a log home. As the guest mentioned, their overall experience was very positive and would highly recommend.
