                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  Why the Owner Chose Windham:
                  I have always wanted a place to escape from the city, but a place that wasn't too far away driving so that it could make a nice weekend possible. I also wanted a place that could be used all year 'round. This place was the perfect combination of all the criteria I wanted and hopefully you too can benefit from that!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                  This is my house too, I rent it out only when I am unable to come up myself, so I keep it in excellent condition always and with all the perks and toys you will want to use too! Close to area ski centers makes it a great home base for skiing/snowboarding to come back to and sit in the hot tub and look up at the stars. In the summer, close to hiking, golf & fishing and has a beautiful inground swimming pool with mountain views and lush green forest.
