So, we would rent it out a few weeks a year and live there the rest of the time! We love that area anyway.

I WANT TO WIN!!!!!!
I remember something about the family that did end up keeping the house thinking they would rent it and not being allowed to do so because of the local homeowner's association or something of that nature.

Actually I looked in this actual community where it is located in Stowe (Spruce Peak) and there are homes for rent by the week both by owner and through agencies. I am really researching this because I plan to win!!!

I saw it on HGTV and thought it is a beautiful house. Unfortunately, we couldn't afford to live there so I'd take the cash option.

I actually love this house. The last few I wasn't that excited about but this one is my style. If they would let you rent it out for part of the year I would want to keep it. It is perfect in every way. OMG what other dreamhouse has had sleeping for 14???? I was just thrilled it had 3 bedrooms, then they added the dorm and it turned awesome. Can you imagine waking up to the pink slopes out your bedroom window.

Anyway if you can't rent it the cash option is awesome.

A New Year with New Possibilities.
