Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

Why the Owner Chose Stowe:
We are East Coast city folks who love VT and the Green mountains. When our children were born, we decided to buy that dream vacation home allowing our family to have a wonderful, well-balanced 'double life'. We chose the Waterbury, VT location for its proximity to various ski resorts (Stowe, Sugarbush, Bolden Valley), great recreational and culinary offerings, and easy access to I-89.
