                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: We are skiers! Summer time we frequent Mad/Chase/Mill River - two are within walking distance from back yard. We are outdoor folks - picnic table, fire pit, chairs for outside - and lot's of light in house east-facing living/kitchen. We like clean! We use this house and want it to be as clean and comfortable for you as for us.

                      Why the Owner Chose Waitsfield:
                      This is the very best valley in in Vermont! Better snow ( 300'+) from lake effect, NO stop lights, franchises, or cheesy motels for 30+ miles in Mad River Valley - VERY quiet year round, yet close to Stowe, Woodstock, Killington and 45 mins to Burlington! Montreal is 1.5-2 hrs drive

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Flat yard for kids adults who enjoy sitting outside, manicured professionally maintained lawn, hot tub and fireplace for year round enjoyment outside, Can see no houses in summertime. Private community with 28 houses - no traffic. Good walking paths behind house ( Catemount Trail) Marked!
