Whats up at Stratton!

Things are happening at Stratton.    The Stratton corporation is investing 7 million dollars mostly in skier amenities!    The new gondola cars are arriving and the lift is getting ready for its new cars!   Yea -- Can't wait to be able to sit down on a nice comfortable seat!  instead of stretching to sit and it will be an eight minute ride.     Stratton has also spent $1.2 on 350 new high efficiency snow guns so skiing will be great.   Stratton is also constructing 3 new glades for skiing fun, two blue and one challenging!

We are busy with lots of people looking for Stratton winter rentals and we seem to have less this year than in previous years.    There are a number of great properties for sale both on Stratton and in Strattonwald with bus service.   Now is a good time to buy.


July doings at Stratton

Summer has arrived at Stratton!    We have had 6 weekends of absolutely beautiful weather, blue bird skies, lush green grass and trees and golden sunsets. The Stratton Golf course is celebrating it's 40 th Anniversary with some nice improvements to the greens and fairways. Tenderloins Restaurant at Stratton  underwent a major transformation and reopened as "The Green Apron" serving farm to table fare. Great locally sourced food prepared in some familiar and inventive forms, served on the patio overlooking the course and Stratton.    Gets my vote for the best lunch spot in all of Southern Vermont.

Winhall suffered a major loss with a fire at the Fat Spy (former Haig's). We are thankful that no one was hurt or injured and hopeful that good things will be come from the ashes.   It appears the original building may be saved. Tony's Pizza is relocating from Rawsonville to right next to our office.

At Winhall Real Estate have an extremely strong website where most of our buyers find our listings, . We are in town and get many walk-ins. There are seven licensed Realtors in our office and we are open from 9-5 six days a week, and 9-4 on Sundays so that we can always serve our sellers and buyers. We do not hand out keys nor do we use lock boxes! Our website is accurate and has lots of good area information as well.     We just put a beautiful Timberpeg home under contract that was listed in the high $900,000's.   They Buyer was looking on our website, fell in love with a home they were coming to Buy at Stratton and then saw this other home and truly fell in love and went to contract!
