If you've ever wondered how this sweet nectar of the gods is made, Maple Open House Weekend is when you should visit!

March 21 & 22 sugar houses all over the state open their doors so you can see how it's done!

There are several sugarhouses nearby and this year we will be tapping our own trees so you can see the entire process from tree to the finished sweet syrup!

Your Hosts - Sue and Steve Alario

It all started with with a backpacking trip in 1975 near Killington in Gifford Woods - we were hooked - so after raising a family and watching all of our kids move to Vermont, we decided to follow them to the Green Mountain State.

It took some time, but we finally found the perfect place to live and work. Dreamhouse is the special place we chose to provide friends we haven’t met yet with a truly enjoyable place to kick back and relax.  We are bakers, culinary enthusiasts and avid supporters of the arts and the environment. Finding this home was a dream come true for us.  Can we help you fulfill one of your dreams?
