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.

                                                                  Terry W.

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!!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Awesome home for a Stowe family getaway

                                                                  Jonathan R.Natick, Massachusetts

                                                                  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.

Clean, comfortable, and amazingly cozy. Beautifully decorated. Perfect for 4 couples to enjoy time together on a beautiful setting.

                                                                  Kathleen M.

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.

                                                                  Beautiful farmhouse, close to everything we wanted to do

Close to the bike path into the shops/restaurants on Mountain Rd, minutes from downtown Stowe in one direction and Stowe Mountain, Smuggles Notch and all that area has to offer in the other. 45 minutes to Burlington and Shelburne and less than a mile to the Alchemist (for craft beer fans!). There were a couple of issues that came up, all out of the owner's control, but she was very quick to respond and do right by us despite being overseas and they were relatively minor things in what was otherwise a great house.
