Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We're a recently retired couple. We've both been in education since the early 70's. Jim worked mostly in higher ed (Boston University and Hunter College) while Kathi focused on K-12 as a teacher and principal. Our current work involves consulting with schools and universities around the world as they seek to better use modern technologies in meaningful ways. We split our time between wintering at Crossett Hill Lodge in Duxbury, Vermont and Cedar Cove in Portsmouth, RI in the summer. Each property has two units, available for rentals. We sail out of Bristol, RI throughout the summer on our 38' yawl (charters available!). Contact me at jim@lengel.net or 508 904 0749.

Why the Owner Chose Duxbury, VT, USA:
We lived in Williamstown, Vermont from 1972-1988. When we moved down country, we kept our rental property there. Then, our daughter and her husband bought a house in Duxbury so we did too. Dividing our time between mountains and beach is just about perfect for us! When we got it, the Lodge needed a complete renovation. We've spent the last three years building bathrooms, tearing down and refinishing thousands of feet of pine boards. They were very dark brown when we moved in. Each board was carefully removed, planed, varnished (with VT whey varnish) and put back up. The house has new windows, insulation, new kitchens, and so on. We both like doing renovations so it's been a great project for us. And, we love being a half mile from our daughter and her young family!

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
The lodge is out in the country, close to town, with skiing, snowshoeing, and hiking out the back door. Combine this unit with the Terraces and you have a perfect spot for a family reunion! Opening our two units to renters has meant a steady stream of very interesting people since we started renting in the summer of 2015.
