Karey, a mom who owns a print and promotional product company with her husband Rick, couldn't hold back the happy tears as designer Brian Patrick Flynn informed her she was the winner of a gorgeous, fully-furnished mountain retreat in Warren, VT plus an All-New 2022 Grand Wagoneer and $250,000 cash from Rocket Mortgage®.

The Ambush

Karey's sisters gathered the family for lunch at their favorite local restaurant, claiming a film crew was there to shoot a food show. "My sister sent out a text saying she needed our opinion on something and asked if we could meet for lunch," said Karey.

They all agreed to do an on-camera interview for the show with designer Brian Patrick Flynn posing as host. As the interview began, however, Brian revealed his true identity and that Karey was the winner of HGTV Dream Home 2022. "I still cry just thinking about it," said Karey.

An HGTV superfan and home design enthusiast, Karey has tried her luck at HGTV home giveaways for years, including HGTV Smart Home and HGTV Urban Oasis, entering twice each day for a chance to win HGTV Dream Home 2022.

I entered every day for the past ten years to every home and people laughed at me for it.

Well, they're certainly not laughing now — Karey was chosen from over 142 million entries, the highest in HGTV Dream Home history!

Karey's favorite thing about the Scandinavian-inspired ski cabin located just miles from Vermont's idyllic Mad River Valley? "The outdoor space," she said, "And the land it's on. The privacy and the Vermont setting — it's a package deal." For a family who loves to ski, we'd agree!

Congratulations on your once-in-a-lifetime win, Karey!
