The last weekend of 2012 we did our first overnight trip with Frances to Vermont. We were invited to stay at a beautiful farmhouse my sister rented in Waterbury, Vermont. The trip was just over 3 hours from Massachusetts and a safe distance to practice our new parenting skills. As we drove north through New Hampshire the landscape turned from muddy browns to white blankets of snow. Frances slept majority of the way (see a pic here); making just one pit stop where we successfully maneuvered our first diaper changing in the car.

On Saturday, we bundled baby up in full winter gear and brought her out for her first winter snowstorm. I got a kick out of letting the fresh snowflakes fall on her face even though she squirmed and whined a little. We made our first baby snow angel (she was asleep) and took a hike around the farm meeting chickens in an adorable red hen house and sat on a pony! This little girl is spoiled for only being 2-months old!

My sister found the house on Homeaway.com (for rental info): an online database of vacation rentals. She and her family spent the week skiing at nearby Stowe Mountain. The farmhouse has a huge kitchen that’s great for cooking in the evenings, a pool table, hot tub (my nieces loved), an outdoor fireplace and five bedrooms situated on 20 acres. The shots above and below are the views! The mountains clouded in snow; the air still and crisp.

    Love the photo narrative! Stunning photography. And, of course, I had to bookmark that farm on homeaway.com — quintessential Vermont.

    Wow I want to go now! I’m assuming there is a caretaker on site for the horses? I’m going to bookmark this for our next time in Vermont with the kids!

    @Susan

    Yes, there is a caretaker for the horses and the chickens! Liz the owner is super nice and let my older nieces brush the horses too! And Liz put aside the fresh eggs from the chickens for us to cook with!

    Looks beautiful! I’ve painted a few times at a farm up in the hills overlooking the town and it’s so pretty. Haven’t been there in the winter but it looks just as nice.

    Hello Katy,
    Found your site recently searching for Samuel Chamberlain info. My wife Linda and I live in a 1790’s cape in NH and enjoy both Chamberlain and Nutting books. Our daughter and son-in-law recently purchased an old home in Marblehead and will enjoy your site as much as we do.
