DIY Network Ultimate Retreat 2017 Giveaway

Colchester, VT - Looking for a dream home on Lake Champlain but staying on a serious budget, you are in luck. The DIY Network's next ultimate retreat giveaway is right on Mallets Bay in Colchester. And it could all be yours, for free.

All you need is your tooth brush and a bathing suit, then you are home. Red Rock Point in Colchester is the site of the 2017 DIY Ultimate Home Retreat.

Dylan Eastman is a project manager for the DIY Network. He says Lake Champlain is the ultimate retreat, providing plenty to do year round.

"There are things for adults, things for kids. It's a very family friendly community. One thing I found if you go to an arts walk, it is everything here is family oriented," said Eastman.

The home located on Malletts Bay has 250 feet of shore line and the home spans over 2,100 square feet. And was renovated with Vermonters in mind.

"A lot of the butter nut in the kitchen and master bedroom came right from Shelburne Farms. Trees cut down right at the farm," said Jed Emerson a Jericho contractor with Red House Inc.

The show reached out to Jed Emerson, a Jericho native to be the contractor on the project. Even turning to a Burlington  architect to re-design the out dated lake home into an entertainers dream.

"The traffic patterns and the flow of the house is good for that. Those are some of the things we worked to develop," said Don Welch of Don Welch Architecture.
 
Renovations began back in January on the 1960's home. Turning it into the modern two bedroom lake side cottage of today.
 
You can enter to win this ultimate retreat starting August 7 through September 27. The home also comes fully furnished for the lucky winner and 50-thousand dollars in cash. Which will come in handy, the taxes on the property according to the Colchester tax assessor is just shy of $12,000. From more information about entering, click here
