Art and I are from New York. Art has owned his own business for many years providing specialized communication equipment to medical offices. I direct the local community foundation.
We are both sailors although I am a 'fair weather only' sailor and he is an 'old salt' and a competitive racer.
I began to visit Colorado when Art would abandon me each summer for his other passion - sailboat racing. I have always loved the mountains so Colorado was a natural destination. While in Colorado, a magazine cover caught my eye - sailboats racing with snow capped mountains in the background! Could I have possibly found an area that met both our interests? The caption 'Lake Dillon' sent me to the map. I was delighted to find out that it was a short hop off of I -70 en route to Denver Airport. That magazine photo led to several more trips to Colorado until I found my dream condo. Every summer since, Art has crewed in the Dillon Regatta and has grown to love the mountains as much as I do.
As long distance landlords, I was fortunate to find a wonderful local rental managemnt company which is responsible for making sure the condo is in tip-top shape for the guests and promptly takes care of any problems that might arise during their stay. Feedback from guests have been very positive.
We are looking forward to retirement in a few years and spending more time in Summit County.
Whether we visit in the winter or summer we find so much to do. We love the year-round live theaters in Dillon and Breckenridge, bike riding (as 'flatlanders' we especially like 14 mile the downhill ride from Vail), and skiing at Keystone and Copper. Summer brings great farmers' markets and outdoor festivals and concerts.
