Recent Okemo reviews

  • Just what we needed

    "A great cabin close to Okemo and Jackson Gore. Cabin had everything you need, only thing I couldn't find was a cutting board. All amenities, wifi close to supermarket. I don't have anything negative to say about it or our stay. We would definitely recommend it and would definitely stay there again. Thank you!!"

  • Perfect mountain getaway

    "We went for a few nights (me, my boyfriend, and my dog) but wish we stayed longer! Adorable house, perfect location, and great owners! Short ride to so many, mostly outdoor, attractions; places to visit are even recommended by owners (but there are even more if you do a little research). Ron and Dottie were so accommodating and so nice, we can't wait to go back!"

  • A wonderful place

    "We just got back from our second stay in Ron and Dottie's cottage, and it was even more wonderful than last year. Were the sunsets even more spectacular, the folks in Belmont friendlier, the views more dramatic?? I'm not sure, but I wish I could bottle the peace and tranquility that we experience in this setting and take it home with me. Thanks so much, Ron, for being the best host ever."

Winter is just the start of the fun in Okemo, Vermont

Okemo is located in the south central part of Vermont and is reputed to be one of the best ski resort areas in the region. The powdery white slopes attract visitors and skiing enthusiasts from all over during the winter months. Yet as the snows melt in spring the mountain peaks do not lose their beauty; instead they are transformed into a summer adventure playground with activities that the whole family can enjoy. The colorful foliage in the fall season also adds to the romance of the area. A quiet stroll in the woods on a carpet of red and gold makes you feel like you've escaped into a dream world for a while.
