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.

The house is very nice and the screen porch was wonderful. Turns out we weren’t really private pond kind of people but I’d you don’t mind swimming with koi fish the pond was refreshing. There is lots of space and the 2 living room areas were nice to have. It is a beautiful area but with all the greenery and all make sure you bring bug and tick spray. The owner was great the deal with.
Thanks for posting a review - we’re so glad you enjoyed your stay! The bugs have been unusually bad this year, but it is a good idea for people to be realistic about how rural and densely forested this property really is. That is both part of the appeal, and something to be prepared for!
My husband and I, with our three labs, rented this property to celebrate our anniversary. It was so relaxing and peaceful. We all had a wonderful time cooling off and swimming in the pond. One of our dogs suffers from wicked anxiety, the whole time there he never needed his anxiety medicine. Even he was completely comfortable there. The screened porch was our favorite spot to hang out. We will definitely request the property again next year!
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
