Year Purchased: 1979
About the owner: I'm recently retired from my work as CEO of a national public health associatoin in Washington DC. I've owned this charming Vermont home since 1979 and in additional to vacation rentals, use in as a B&B part of the year. I love to travel and try to spend the winter months in a warm climate. I've been divorced for 16 years.
Why the Owner Chose Stowe: This is a home on the national register of historic places. I've enjoyed renovating it and preserving the integrity of the property. The Village location is ideal for me. I can enjoy all shops and restaurants and never have to get in the car. It is really convenient and a pleasure to walk to the recreation path, and hiking and biking trails. Stowe is a unique little village with an international flare. It was used by the British vacation company, Crystal Holidays for multiple years to bring Europeans to the ski area in the winter months.
