                                  About the owner: I was born and raise in the Northeast Kingdom and moved away when I graduated from High School. My parents and some of my siblings still live in the Kingdom. My husband and I built the house in 1987 and my children have grown up visiting the area all of their lives. They have learned to appreciate the beauty that the area has to offer. We taking advantage of the crystal clear lakes and the majestic mountains. We love to boat in the summer months and ski in the winter months.
