About Ted & Betsy Newcomb

Betsy and I lived in and loved the Mount Snow Valley and its people for 10 years prior to our move south as a pastoral family. We knew this would be the location of our future retirement home where our grown family and all our friends could comfortably gather to renew relationships and build new found community. As the sign says in the living room, 'Friends are the family you find along the way.' We hope you'll discover such warmth in this place.

Betsy and I are Massachusetts natives (Amherst & Braintree respectively). We met at college at the University of Massachusetts, setting our eyes on the future. Married one week after graduating, I then continued with my graduate degree in the area of Pastoral Ministry within a progressive denomination. Betsy's field has been greenhouse management. We take a rather pragmatic view of life, raising 3 kids to love the simple pleasures and to revel in the out of doors. It is one of the reasons our hearts leaped when we discovered the property only 11 miles from where we once lived. We knew it was the right place for our future home. And in 2010, construction got underway to fulfill a very big dream that we've long shared.

Ted & Betsy Newcomb purchased this house in 1993

Why Ted & Betsy Newcomb chose Wardsboro

As previously noted, we are outdoor people who love the environment and revel in the unique beauty of all the changing seasons. Each has a character uniquely its own. The wetland behind the house is an active ecosystem that enthralls visitors. Between activity in the pond, the interplay of color and shadows, floral beauty, a very dark night sky where the Milky Way band leaps out at you, and easy access to the two incredible mountains and their amenities just around the corner along with all the lakes and trails for outdoor enthusiasts, this is about as good as it gets in our mind's eye!

What makes this house unique

When preparing to build, we fell in love with a special design. It melded Betsy's dream of a Country Farm House with a lovely front porch with my vision of a hybrid Colonial. While we employed skilled framers and other trades people do what they do best, we (along with family and so many friends) have labored countless hours to finish interior and exterior to our liking. It has taken two years to get to this point often working just 1-1/2 days per week save for vacation time, but slowly the dream has been realized. Now we are pleased to share it with you!

A couple of moose ambled through the Beaver Pond in late Sept. 2012. You'll see a picture on our site to prove it. We've also been entertained by the beaver population in the pond. And a local black bear and cub have made their way along the back side of the house on their way to the pond. Can you say tranquility? To sit out back on the deck some 15' above the yard and feel the peace...priceless! Hike in nearby woods. Behold the expanse of the Milky Way in the dark Night Sky. Have ease of access to Mount Snow from the 'traffic lite' north side just 3 miles away. Enjoy the best that Vermont woodlands has to offer. For on site massage, contract with Marci Himelson with Mount Snow Massage (802) 464-5602. For on site sitters, contract with Deerfield Valley Sitters (802) 490-4729.

beautiful, well maintained and clean

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here for a family getaway week-end. The house was very clean and well maintained. The master suite was gorgeous and the upstairs bedrooms were situated perfectly so as to give the occupants a feeling of having their own wing. The house had everything you could want. Plenty of room for everyone, games, puzzles, pool table as well as outside games. The grounds are stunning with gorgeous flowers and rolling lawn. Ted was a dream to deal with! He was very accommodating to our needs and requests. If you are looking for a large home for a peaceful vacation, this is the place to be.

Another amazing weekend at Camp Newcomb North!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about this wonderful home. We have rented the same house almost 10 times and we keep coming back because of the beautiful home and the lovely owners. It is fully equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The views are spectacular from the great room. We love to end the day around the fireplace - it is so cozy and inviting. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare a wonderful meal. The bedrooms are well spread out throughout the home. The entire family enjoyed the pool table and the kids loved all of the games provided in the library. We love it so much, we are shortly returning for another ski weekend with friends. Our highest recommendations!

Dreaming about fall in starry vermont

  • 5 of 5

We love everything about the cabin. The fall season add more beauty to the house with the back drop of the mountains. The house is clean, serene and we have everything that we need. Rev. Ted was everything you can wish for in a host. You asked one thing and he will tell you more than you asked for. We went to the places that he suggested, and it was all good. When we get tired of driving around we just stay at home which is more relaxing and we seat by the fire pit and make smores. It was a memorable trip that we will cherish for a lifetime. Thanks Ted and Betsy for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home.

Four season, outdoor enthusiast's paradise. Just 3 miles north of Mount Snow's north entrance (no traffic). Stratton is only 11 miles NW. Very fine restaurants (Dover Forge) and pubs (Valley View Saloon) in West Dover & Wilmington await your discovery. Somerset Reservoir (the largest body of impounded water within VT) is nearby...a total wilderness experience on 11 mile lake. Kayakers...don't miss! Challenging golf courses with grand vistas at Haystack, Mount Snow and Stratton. Cross Country Ski/Snowshoe at Timber Creek or create your own trails in our adjacent National Forest. Appalachian Trail just 5 miles away. Foliage in the region is unparallelled generally from the final week of September through the 2nd week of October. Relax, Re-create, Reflect!
