Beginning today through 5 p.m. ET on Wednesday, September 27, eligible viewers can enter twice each day at for a chance to win the beautifully renovated getaway with 250 feet of direct frontage on Lake Champlain. This is the first-ever DIY Network Ultimate Retreat Giveaway, which invites viewers to follow the demolition and renovation process room by room as a home in a spectacular vacation destination is transformed into a show-stopping retreat.

“After ten years of incredible homes with DIY Network Blog Cabin, we wanted to give viewers a taste of some of the best vacation spots around the country,” said Ron Feinbaum, DIY Network’s General Manager of Home Promotions. “The stunning natural beauty of Vermont combined with Burlington’s vibrant and eclectic atmosphere make it the perfect location for the first-ever DIY Network Ultimate Retreat Giveaway.”

This year, DIY Network is pulling out all the stops to reinvent a dated 1960s ranch-style home, filling it with vintage goods, high-end finishes and natural materials that lend a “rustic meets refined” ambience. The two-bedroom, two-bath home features upper and lower decks with pristine views that afford a seamless connection to some of Vermont’s most incredible surroundings. Burlington serves as an ideal backdrop with a picturesque and walkable downtown, a booming culinary scene and activities for outdoors enthusiasts of all kinds.

Viewers can watch the renovation unfold every Monday night in August at 8 p.m. ET with episodes hosted by DIY Network star and licensed contractor Jason Cameron. The process kicks off tonight with the kitchen and family room renovation, followed by the master bedroom on August 14 and the yard and exterior on August 21. The whole-house transformation is documented in a one-hour special airing Monday, August 28 at 8 p.m. ET.
