To celebrate its silver jubilee, the resort will be launching several promotions throughout the year, including special gift baskets and giveaways for guests who stay on the 25th of each month and who are celebrating a 25th anniversary, and a contest centered around past romantic experiences at Sterling Ridge.

 

“We first developed Sterling Ridge Resort by operating it as an 8 room Inn, but soon saw potential for secluded units on the property. Scott and I saw our customers’ want for more privacy, and our log cabins provides them with a place to call a home away from home, somewhere they can relax and enjoy the beautiful Vermont Setting,” said Susan Peterson, owner of Sterling Ridge with her husband, Scott. Scott continued, “It has been a wonderful experience to watch the resort grow and key into what the guests are looking for in a getaway vacation. We have personally involved ourselves into every aspect of the business and we are proud to have a successful business that continues to grow each year.”

Launching around Valentine’s Day until March 14th the resort will run a contest, asking current and past guests to share a romantic tale that they’ve had while staying at Sterling Ridge. The top story will win a weekend getaway (a 2 night stay, with restrictions). Contestants are asked to share their story on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using #sterlingridgeromance. The winner will be selected on our official anniversary date in June 10, 2017.

Highlighting the importance of this year’s superstar number, 25, the resort will present guests who stay on the 25th of each month with special giveaways. Couples who are also celebrating their 25th anniversary with the resort will receive a complimentary Anniversary Gift Basket filled with select goodies to increase the romance of the stay.

“We have made wonderful friends along the way that have helped us by being repeat customers and by referring family and friends to visit the resort. Celebrating our 25th year would not be possible without our guests, and this promotional year gives us the opportunity to say “thank you” for staying with us, whether multiple times, or only once,” explained the Petersons.
