It’s that time of year – the annual Rose Bowl Parade, the Rose Bowl itself, and the HGTV Dream Home Sweepstakes. This year the house is set in Stowe, Vermont and you can have two chances daily to win until February 18, 2011 on HGTV.com and FrontDoor.com.
The HGTV Dream Home 2011 in Stowe, Vermont features a ski dorm straight out of a destination ski lodge. Architect Robert Paul Rousselle designed an inspirational gathering spot for generations of one fortunate family. Just looking at the artist renderings as the home developed seemed to wrap me up in a cozy cocoon for winter hibernation, with the added benefit of some astounding views.
