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!

Perfect home for a Vermont family ski trip
I've rented a lot of properties through vrbo an this was my favorite home I've ever rented by far. The views were breath taken , the home cozy an warm , an very very spacious for a family of 4 . We went skiing at both smuggs an stowe an they both were a very easy trip to both mountains. Also not a bad drive to mountain road in stowe to go out to eat with your family. We definitely will be back. Absolutely loved it.
Housing made for a great trip
Restful, welcoming, glorious!
We are two older ladies who booked the country log home seeking a break from our busy routine. And what a break! We really had a sense of getting away from it all! The ambiance in the house and environs couldn't have been more restorative -- every detail delightful, every comfort provided for, from top-quality beds and linens to cheery skylight in the living room. Jacob (black lab) joined in our enthusiasm, grateful that the frogs shared their pond with him. We found the surrounding area to be full of every type of activity and attraction one could imagine. Scenic drives were our favorite, in the height of the fall colors. 100% positive - our highest recommendation!
Beautiful views and great space for a family
Clean and well taken care of property. It is about 20 minutes from Stowe Village and an hour to Montpelier or Burlington. Ideal spot to get away but within proximity to take day trips to other locations. Grill, fire pit, and lots of land at house.
Beautiful property. Peaceful and relaxing
My family and I spent 5 days at this lovely property in July. We had 6 adults and a yorkie in our group. The house is very spacious and well maintained. It has great gathering areas but we also had plenty of privacy with 2 bedrooms and a bathroom on both floors. The kitchen is well equipped and the custom dining table is beautifully made and huge! We enjoyed several meals there. As nice as the house was we spent most of of our time outdoors. The grounds are just amazing. There are gardens and a back porch to relax with a cup of tea, or a glass of wine and admire the spectacular mountain views. We had a lot of fun in the private pond. We swam, floated,(there are tubes in basement you can use) and had frog finding contests. Turtles too. My husband even took me on a sunset cruise around the pond in the canoe. There is also an outdoor firepit which was great for making s'mores and star gazing at night. There are plenty of things to do in the area and plenty of restaurants. Visit the nearby tucked away waterfall. Our family has been to Vermont several times and this was exactly what we were looking for. A peaceful relaxing retreat. Thank you Sandy and Peter.
Great Ski Cabin
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.
