I am typically not one of those people who enter lots of contests online. I hate the piles of junk mail with offers of sweepstakes and it seems that with each only entry to win a fabulous prize, my email box becomes packed with email after email that belong in the junk folder but never quite make it there. There is however, one exception to this. The HGTV Dream Home sweepstakes.
If you are not familiar with the HGTV Dream Home, each year HGTV announces the new location for their Dream Home giveaway, which awards one lucky person the house, a new car and some cash. And as you can imagine, the house is incredible. This is the fifteenth year of the Dream Home giveaway and this year the house is located in beautiful Stowe, VT, and is the quintessential mountain lodge with breathtaking views of the mountains and surroundings. You can visit the HGTV website for pictures of the home, floor plan and virtual tours of each room and information about the furnishings and accessories that were chosen to give this home the unmistakable look and feel that you are in Vermont.
Curious about the location? There is even a link to FrontDoor.com so you can check out what it’s like to live in Stowe. In addition to the home, car and cash, the winner will also receive a housewarming gift package that is chosen by visitors to the website and one lucky voter will also receive the housewarming package as well so be sure to vote while you are perusing the site.
After having much success with the Dream Home giveaway, three years ago HGTV decided to start another amazing prize package with the HGTV Green Home giveaway. This year the Green Home is located in Stapleton, CO, near Denver, and the floor plan is available for viewing on the site. As you can imagine, this home is built with every attention to detail focused on eco-friendly living. Though this contest is not open to votes just yet, you can view the progress and learn about the inspiration that has gone into the rooms of the home. And best of luck to all of you who vote in either of these great giveaways.
