We live in Mountainside, NJ and both work in the area. We love Vermont and use the house frequently during the warmer times of year, from April through November. The house is typically rented for the entire ski season, (phone number hidden), and at other various time of the year when we are not using it. My wife and I are planning to retire in VT at some point in the next few years, it's just a beautiful state with a very laid back lifestyle. It is just what we need to unwind from the New York area hustle anbd bustle.
