Top 3 Must Do’s for a Vermont Winter

As you probably know, Vermont winters are all about snow. Downhill skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing can only be enjoyed in winter. And after a day of any of these, nothing beats sipping wine by a cozy fire. Now that we finally have some some snow, here are my Top 3 Must Do’s for [more]

Pumpkin Carver

My Short Life as a Pumpkin Carver

Artistry is not my strong point and neither are sharp knives. Many years ago my sister-in-law told me I had to learn how to be creative so that I could help my daughter with her school projects. I thought, “Oh-oh, we’re in trouble now.” I’m a real estate agent, not a pumpkin carver! Fortunately my [more]

Lakefront Property for Sale, South Hero, Vermont

Road Trip to South Hero

Last week the fall foliage was nearing peak where I live in the foothills of Mount Mansfield. It was time to take a drive and photograph all my current listings so future buyers could see what they look like during Vermont’s beautiful leaf-peeping season. I also have one gorgeous lakefront property listing on Lake Champlain, [more]

I Love Rural Vermont Real Estate

One of my favorite (and original) quotes about rural Vermont real estate is this: “We drive to work, but we come home and play.” In other words, yes, our commutes may be slightly longer, but after work and on weekends we are right where we want to be!

They restored an 1875 carriage barn that now houses Boyden Valley Winery and also serves as an event space for [more]

My Favorite Vermont Hikes

Years ago I would have said Mount Hunger was one of my favorite Vermont hikes, if not my favorite by far! I made sure I hiked that mountain with my girlfriends the morning of my wedding, and every year I hiked it on my birthday, just to see the stunning fall views from the top. [more]

Vermont Fall Foliage and the Passing of Summer

Vermont fall foliage is like a big bowl of Trix—raspberry red, lemon yellow, and orange orange! The hillsides and mountains are breathtakingly beautiful right now. Every year I mourn the passing of summer; no more long days and warm nights. By mid-August the evening air starts to cool and I am sad to see it [more]

Farmers’ Markets near Pleasant Valley, Vermont

One of the great things about summer in Vermont is a plethora of farmers’ markets. What used to be venues for farmers to sell their fresh produce directly to the public has blossomed into complex outdoor markets offering baked goods, fresh flowers, artisan crafts, food carts, live entertainment, kids’ activities, organic meats, and of course, [more]
