Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are the Case family - Brian and Charlene and our three young boys. When we are not in Vermont, our primary residence is in Connecticut. We enjoy road and mountain biking, skiing, hiking, soccer, and hockey. Brian is a business owner and Charlene is a physician.

Why the Owner Chose Grafton, VT, USA:
After renting in Grafton, Vermont for a couple of winters, we decided to find a home of our own. We have enjoyed the close proximity to Grafton Ponds for cross country skiing and are looking forward to exploring more of the area during the other seasons as well. The town is quiet and well-maintained, the locals friendly, and the pace a bit slower than what we experience at home.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Both of us have extended family in the New England area with whom we enjoy spending vacation time. As well, we have many friends who share our love of the outdoors. We have such great memories of time away with these loved ones, away from the hustle and bustle of our every day lives. The house is a quiet retreat where we play games, have meals, and just reconnect. We really enjoy being just minutes from the cross country skiing at Grafton Ponds where there is also a tubing hill, a new biathalon course, and swimming and mountain biking.
