For twenty-five years, Cindy and Bob Maynard ran adventure travel companies that brought groups of clients on walking, hiking and biking trips all over the world. Ten years ago they decided to dial back on their traveling, and settle more fully into life in northern Vermont.
Thanks to Pat’s long career in the diplomatic corps, she and her husband Darryl have lived in many different countries and experienced a wide variety of housing types. In Norway, they became enchanted with hytter, the small cabins in the woods that every Norwegian family seemed to own. While renting these cabins for weekend getaways, Pat and Darryl found that they liked living remotely in the woods and decided to pursue this lifestyle in the U.S. for their retirement.
