About the property

3 bedroom farm house on working cherry orchard, 6 miles from town

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 in our 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 a twin day bed and pop up trundle bed in a second upstairs bedroom. The kitchen is fully equipped with service for 6. 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 ( allows a group of 15 to stay close together.

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.

About JoAnn Hampton

Greg Hampton was born and raised in Wenatchee. His dad, Wilmer, founded Mission Ridge Ski and Board Resort. Greg is an avid skier and was a ski jumper as a kid. He and JoAnn met while serving as Air Force officers at a US base in England. They were married in her home town in New Jersey. After their active duty tours were over, they settled on the family homestead in the Squilchuck area of Wenatchee.

JoAnn Hampton purchased this farmhouse in 1997

Why JoAnn Hampton chose North Central Cascades

This property has been in the Hampton family for over 100 years. The Homestead was built in the early 1900's. The Hideaway was built by second generation Hamptons in the 1940's. Greg and JoAnn are 3rd generation Hamptons and raised their 4 children in the original Homestead then built their home on the hill over looking the orchards.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The Hampton Homestead has been home to 5 generations of our family. Greg has fond memories of visiting his Grandpa Tony, picking corn and milking cows.

Hampton Homestead Farm House on Cherry Orchard

Comfy, Quiet, and all the amenities like home!

  • 5 of 5

I love farms. So staying at the Hampton Homestead was the perfect place. Very quiet! We went on a beautiful walk around the orchards and then 4 miles away we were skiing at Mission Ridge all day. Busy playing all day and we could come home be just as comfortable as at home. Everything was well organized, spacious and available a cabinets reach away. I hope to come back every year. I loved it!

Beautiful, well maintained house on a great property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Hampton Homestead. The house is really nice and well maintained, the beds were comfortable, and our hosts even left us a bottle of wine. JoAnn was very responsive to emails and it was easy to get in touch. They left us a binder of information that was helpful as well. Thanks for a great stay!

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved the place. It's very close to the Mission Ridge ski resort. The house is very clean and roomy. Highly equipped kitchen. The picture dose not do the justice of the home. We really enjoyed stay there and would love to go back again next year.
