Summer is Finally Here!

It was a great winter here in the Stratton/Bromley area.  We loved the extra-long season which provided skiing and riding well into April.  Our renters and owners enjoyed their properties and all of the great amenities our location provides.  Now we are busy listing and selling homes and land while managing rentals for locals and visitors alike.  Stratton is in full swing with summer concerts, tons of creative mountain activities, golf, shopping, fine dining and more.  Both seasonal and short-term rentals are already in progress, so don't wait to take advantage of the full selection of properties available.
