The Hampton Homestead provides a serene escape from the hustle and bustle of the big city. This is the childhood home of Wilmer Hampton, founder of Mission Ridge Ski and Board Resort, and is nestled in a valley of 20 acres of cherry orchards and 600 acres of forest. Wilmer’s father homesteaded and built this home about 1915. It has gone through several remodeling updates, most recently new flooring and counter top in the kitchen and main bathroom. All new furnishings in 2015. We have an active cherry orchard, so please consider any sensitivities or allergies you might have when planning your stay. As a curtesy to our guests with allergies, we do not allow pets or smoking in our home. There may be barn cats on the property during your stay, and we kindly ask that you not allow them inside or feed them anywhere near the home. The Homestead is located about 6 miles (15 minutes) from the Hampton Lodge at Mission Ridge and about 15 minutes from downtown Wenatchee. Close enough to enjoy the town and far enough to have the out in the country feel.
Enjoy walking through the forest along an old logging road or make your own trail. Climb a hill for a great view of the sunrise. Glide down our sledding hill for some wintertime fun. Taste a few sweet cherries during our July harvest. Find a quiet spot for a picnic. Gaze upon the deer and wild turkeys feeding in the early morning or listen to the owls hooting at night.
The Hampton Homestead is furnished with 1 king euro pillow top bed in the main floor master bedroom, 1 queen euro pillow top bed in an upstairs bedroom, and 2 twin beds and pop up twin trundle bed in a second upstairs bedroom. The kitchen is fully equipped with service for 7. A comfortable living room has large screen TV, DVD/ Blu-ray player and complimentary Netflix and wireless internet service.
The 1940’s Hampton Hideaway barn is now available as an event venue. See our web site or HamptonHideaway Facebook page for more information. The barn and our vacation rentals make a great country wedding package. Renting the Homestead with the Hampton Hideaway (VRBO.com/410092) allows a group of 15 to stay close together. Please note that weddings may be taking place at the barn between mid May and Mid October, with an ending time of 10 PM.
Whether you are planning a family vacation, a quick weekend getaway or are visiting for business, the Wenatchee Valley has an adventure for you. With four distinct seasons, 300 sunshine-filled days a year, a river running through town and mountains so close you can touch them, your stay in Wenatchee Valley will be memorable.
Greg and JoAnn look forward to welcoming you to their home.
