Other Information about the Home and Stove
Room Size (Sq ft): 1,000 | House Size (Sq feet): NA
Bought in 2019 , Price Paid: $2,400
Location : Stowe, Vermont 05672, Usa
Purchased from: Fireplace Retail Store - Chimney Sweep

Likes: Aesthetics are outstanding.

Dislikes: Inefficient. Too many working parts. Impossible to find replacement parts in a timely manner. Customer service at retailer and at Vermont Castings is nonexistent. A company which once made outstanding stoves has been bought, sold, bought, and sold so many times that it no longer measures up to its reputation.
