Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Matt and Lauren met and were married five years ago in New Jersey. Lovers of the outdoors and avid skiers, they decided to purchase the Red Tail House as a respite from their busy work weeks in NYC. They own two rescued mutts and often take family and friends to the house on weekends all year round.

Why the Owner Chose Dorset, VT, USA:
We fell in love with this property primarily for its mountain views. It's intoxicating to sit on the deck or inside the house and look out over the mountains. The peace of being with nature has a healing effect. We have been walking the 5.5 mile loop in the Hollow for two years now and it gets better every time. We love that we can have the remote feel on the private acreage without being far from activities! The town of Dorset has great people and great food. Manchester has great everything else, as well. What we love best is that whether we are feeling indoors-y or outdoors-y, the relaxation and peace seems to penetrate you whether you are relaxing by the fire looking over the mountains, or 'playing' outside. We bought this property, have furnished it and cared for it without the intention to rent it. However, we believe it is a place that should be shared. And, hey, we have a mortgage to pay!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Its the fact that this house and location has everything we love all in one place that has caused us to fall in love. The house itself is beautiful in side. Pretty, open and cozy.
