  • Description


    We are a couple from Switzerland, in our early sixties, who live in the US for over 18 years. In 2014, we bought a very nice log-house, which sits on 20 acres of land in Newport, Vermont. We are well traveled and easy going outdoor people, who have a big heart for animals. We have two dogs and two horses but the horses are not on our land. As we travel frequently, we have the horses in a stable a few miles from our house. The location of our home is about 20 minutes from the Canadian border so we have easy access to Montreal and other places in Quebec. The nearest town, Newport, VT is about 8 minutes by car but the town doesn't offer much in terms of culture, other than its nice location, situated at the Lake Memphermagog, and a few restaurants.
