                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: My wife Jen and I are from Western, MA. We were married at the 'Chapel of the Snows' on Stratton Mountain. We have 2 dogs that love to go to VT for the fresh air as well. We are avid skiers and golfers that still enjoy coming to Stratton Mountian year after year. Thanks for taking a look at our vacation home, and hope to see you in the future. Jeff & Jen Puffer

                  Why the Owner Chose Windham:
                  We bought our house while honeymooning at Stratton Mountain in Feb. 2005. We fell in love with the area after years of coming here skiing. We decided to buy in this area due to the easy drive from Western, MA and surrounding areas. The area has so much to offer and I feel it's one of the most beautiful places in Vermont, with it's quaint towns and quailty of life. We spent several months updating and furnishing our home with antiques from homes in South Central, VT. We wanted our guests to feel as comfortable as we do when staying. We hope you'll have the chance to stay and enjoy this beautiful state.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                  You'll enjoy just being able to relax and taking in benefits of just being here. Whether it's sitting in front of the fire, playing cards with family and friends, making a puzzle with the children, reading, making snowmen, exploring, etc., you'll know you can do it in a safe environment. As with many homes in VT, we try to accomodate everyone and I'm sure you'll find your stay in VT most enjoyable.
