              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: To briefly escape the hubbub of New York in 2002, I spent two weeks with my best cousin in Vermont. For months after I returned to NY I dreamed of living in Vermont. A year later, thanks to the Internet, I was able to make my dream come true. I bought the property right next door to my cousins place and moved to Vermont for good. A 25-year veteran of the higher education publishing industry, I no longer have to live where the company I work for is located. I telecommute.

              Why the Owner Chose Granville:
              My brother liked to come to Vermont in the summer to escape the Florida heat, but he is deathly allergic to dogs and cats and since my cousin and I both have pets, he had to stay in hotels. So in 2008 I built a guest cottage for him on my property. He uses it for a week in summer and a week in winter and the rest of the time (to help pay for it) I am renting it to vacationers.

              The Unique Benefits at this Guest House:
              I love participating in the small town social life of Granville. But what I love most about my new life here is that I can work and vacation in the same place. In the summer I can swim twice a day if I want to, work in my vegetable and flower gardens, go for long walks, hang out with my cousin and her horses, and still put in a respectable day’s work at the computer. I work longer hours in the winter, but still get plenty of exercise walking, show shoeing, and snow shoveling. My son and his family love it here in summer, but even more in winter as they are avid skiers. So I always seem to have family visits on the horizon.
