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.

Great house, beautiful property in Stowe!

  • 5 of 5

House was perfect for my family and friends to spend a long weekend in Stowe Vermont to attend a wedding. The owner Betsy was very responsive and accommodating for our trip! The home is in great condition, spacious kitchen and bedrooms. Beautiful views from the property and close by to many attractions, restaraunts, shops, breweries, etc. Stowe has a lot to offer and the Farmhouse was perfect. We will definitely be back!

Harvest moon at the Bouchard Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great location for Vermont adventures

  • 5 of 5

House served as a perfect location for our needs. 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.

Perfect house for family getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Bouchard Farmhouse was the perfect space for us. We were in Stowe for a family wedding, and the house was great! Well appointed, plenty of room to be together or to have quiet time. From the big kitchen island, to the front porch, roomy back patio, comfy living areas and the hot tub, the space was super comfortable. Big windows allowed gorgeous views from every turn. The property is very private, yet close enough to town and attractions to make it convenient....Close to Trapp Family Lodge, recreation path, corn maze, and hiking. Bedrooms and bathrooms were spread out in the house which was nice. The foliage was quite a sight to see. We were very glad we selected this farmhouse vs. a hotel....more time to spend together just hanging out and catching up (we came from RI, NY and CO to attend the wedding). We will definitely be back if Vermont is in our plans, and would recommend this house to anyone who wants to make special memories in Stowe in any season.
