Meet The Owners
Shane & Stacey Vorous met and fell in love in the summer of 1997. Married a year later in beautiful Vail, Colorado, they grew their "rainbow tribe" of four beautiful children and balanced intense careers in the demanding hospitality business. Once they had their first child, they quickly became self employed and completed over 30 residential projects as a team with a thriving building and excavation company. Over the years they grew to use more 'out of the box ' design and materials and were tearing down and repurposing barnwood about 18 years before it was super trendy. Combining their history in hospitality (Stacey was an Event and restaurant Manager for a 5 star resort in The Vail Valley and Shane was a Chief Engineer at an exclusive ski resort when they met), they took a leap of faith with their 20+ years of experience and found a property across the country in beautiful Rangeley, Maine where they knew they could create their vision of an all-inclusive wedding destination that people could afford to 'buy-out' and have as their own. The results quickly won them The Entrepreneurer's of the year in Franklin County after their first year in operation (before the venue was even completed)! Since then they have added to their offerings by building modern nightly rental cottages on a picturesque wooded property just on the edge of downtown Rangely (FieldStoneCottages.com).
"The Mountain Star Estate represents all of the things that are close to our hearts... family, memories and authenticity. We found an unparalleled natural setting, and created a comfortable, repurposed and beautiful place to gather with friends and loved ones for a one-of-a-kind experience. It is our honor to share our vision with you!" Stacey Vorous
