About Amy Helburn
Our young family has enjoyed and maintained this property for nearly a decade now. We are very familiar with the surrounding area and happy to provide information and recommendations.
Amy Helburn purchased this Farmhouse in 2008
Why Amy Helburn chose Cabot
If you are looking for a charming, rustic retreat that offers privacy, space and activities for a multi-generational family and/or large group of friends - this is the place. You will feel like you have gone back in time, to enjoy a simpler, slower pace of life. Don't worry though, Wi-Fi is provided. The kitchen and dining area adjacent to the large screened porch make this a particularly nice place for groups to gather. And the variety and beauty of outdoor spaces make this property unique - especially the large private swimming pond.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Private, beautiful and relaxing, with many on-site amenities, and also conveniently situated to many points of interest.

Wow! What a GREAT experience! We booked during the FALL FOLIAGE and it did not disappoint. The house with its screened patio overlooking the pond was so beautiful and comfortable! We thoroughly enjoyed it! The bakery in Marshfield has chef quality food (even though you would NEVER guess that!). Sarah's little diner at the back of the hardware store was so quaint and delicious! The general store was stocked with just about everything you need. We went to the Cabot creamery, drove route 100, and many other routes. What a LOVELY EXPERIENCE!!! JUST DO IT!
The property is easily found off the beaten path. Spotless and full of anything and everything you’d want in a home away.
We look forward to coming back again.
I loved sitting on the screened in porch. So beautiful and tranquil.
Charming, fabulous, clean, so well laid out
My husband, four children and I stayed at the farmhouse for a long weekend and we can not wait to schedule a follow up trip!!!
The home was clean and cheeerful and spacious and had all of the amenities you could hope for. The property was exceptional, and the gardens and pond were a dream for my family.
We love outdoor time as a family, and this home served our needs. The screened in porch was awesome, and the playhouse was so cute and so fun for the kids. We made s’mores at the fire pit, watched lightning bugs, went in a little hike on the property, saw the waterfall, caught frogs and salamanders... it was a true paradise for my 8,6,4 and 1 year olds!
We got dinner one evening at positive pie which was great, we visited Cabot cheese, and made a day trip to Woodstock where we walked around the adorable town and went to Sugarbush Maple Farm for syrup and cheese.
The owner was easy to contact and had a handy book full of info about the home. Also be sure to look through the library of books. We found the invisible garden book which was a treat to look through.
Vermont is our new favorite place, and that is saying something because we have always been beach goers. I think we may have new vacation plans in the years to come!
Happy to hear that your family so enjoyed your stay! And we do hope you’ll return. Thanks
Loved every minute at this house. Beautiful location, comfortable and clean home. Spent our evenings on the screened porch watching the fire flies and listening to the frogs and peepers in the pond. A memorable experience. Eager to stay here again.
Glad that you enjoyed your stay!
A superb gem-of-a-house for the whole family
After driving a good 5hrs+ straight, it was a relief to finally reach our destination - and what a destination this place is! Located along a quiet Vermont country backroad, this splendid property has true charm and character in buckets, from the koi pond (which my kids loved, especially being able to feed the fish) to the wood-burning stoves keeping us cosy warm to the very large collection of books to the netted porch with relaxing views of the lovely garden...I could go on but don't want to spoil it for you!
There are many activities to enjoy in the area, catering to a wide variety of needs not least including a scenic drive up Stowe mountain road and through Smugglers Notch, eating out in Montpelier, tour of the Ben & Jerrys factory (plus free samples!), visiting the nearby maple sugar farms for delicious wares, hiking some of the many trails available, Rock of Ages in nearby Barre, etc.
We would very much love to come back here, and from the look of how far in advance the bookings can get it seems a lot of others are agreeing just how lovely Cabot Farmhouse really is for a pleasant and enjoyable vacation, whatever time of year.
One thing I would highly recommend is DownStreet Eats on the main road through nearby Cabot. We ate breakfast there on our last morning and wished we had found it at the start of our holiday - superb tasty food in a welcoming and well set out location.
Conveniently situated 20 minutes between Montpelier and St. Johnsbury - close to West Hill Pond (boating and fishing) - Groton State Park (boating, swimming, hiking) - VAST trails - great food Co-ops, farmer stands, farmer markets and restaurants in the area - Locally sourced foods at Pete's Greens and Hollister Hill Farm - Grandview Winery, Hill Farmstead Brewery and Alchemist Brewery nearby - Book and Antique stores - Great area for kids: playground and library nearby - Great VT Corn Maze - downhill and cross-country ski sites in the area - Great area for motorcycle riding: miles of open roads, beautiful vistas and motorcycle rentals at Wilkins H-D in Barre.
