Wenatchee Wedding Venue – William and Mary Hampton settled in the Squilchuck Valley in 1901. William was pleased to raise his children in the Great Northwest. Their son, Antone, shared in this dream and settled the current property in 1915. He built the white farm house that year and married Jesse Halverson, a farmers daughter from the adjacent canyon. Tony and Jesse raised six children together while farming a wheat crop. the family developed a love for sledding and skiing. In the mid 1940s the areas first rope tow was built on the sledding hill just behind the white farm house. Of their children, William and Walt were the most dedicated skiers. In 1943 William married Helen Malone and they made their home in a one room grain storage shed. Over the years they dug a basement and have added rooms to what is now the Hampton Hideaway vacation home. In 1946 Antone and Wilmer built the dairy barn and continued the family’s farming legacy while growing wheat and raising cattle.
In the early 1960’s Wilmer, now a competitive and nationally recognized ski jumper, and his brother Walt began working on the establishment of the Mission Ridge ski area. Wilmer passed on before seeing his dream come to fruition but the family was honored to have the MIssion Ridge ski lodge named after him. Wilmer and Helen had four children and Greg, the only son, took responsibility for the family ranch when he returned in 1987 after serving in the Air Force with his wife JoAnn. Greg and Helen turned the ranch into a cherry orchard. Greg and JoAnn raised four children and built the hilltop home in 2007 before opening the Hampton Hideaway Vacation Rental in 2011. In 2012 their oldest child, Katie, and her husband Tim moved to Wenatchee and began renovating the barn and incorporated Hampton Hideaway as a wedding and special event venue.
We look forward to writing the next chapter of our history with you and your family.
