Recent Okemo reviews

  • Nice stay

    "Thanks for an enjoyable ski vacation. House was pleasantly more beautiful, comfortable and well kept than the pictures show. Excellent communication. Two minor things were that the home was freezing when we arrived and that we couldn't get the brand new coffee maker to work even with the owner's prompt responses to our complaints. Hopefully it'll work for the next guests. Lovely home. Would recommend to others and we will keep in mind the next time we go to Okemo."

  • Ideal for long weekend

    "A perfect place for a long weekend at Okemo. Plenty of room for two adults, two children and the dog ! Excellent location - really couldn't be any easier ! And made all the better by having a flexible departure time ! No midday checkout meant we could have a full day of skiing and then relax, pack and freshen up before the long journey home. Would definitely recommend staying here and imagine we will be back !"

  • Nice Ski Condo

    "This was a nice, comfortable ski condo for a family of 4. Everything is there, the trails are a couple hundred yards but walkable in ski boots, the swimming pool is right across the street, the owners are friendly and responsive. And it is priced right. The fleece blankets / throws are the softest I have ever felt and we all wrapped ourselves up in them by the fire. The only downside is that it is a little worn around the edges, but whether that bothers you is a matter of opinion. Kitchen stuff could use an upgrade, knives weren't sharp, gadgets were old and not always clean, drawers were a little disorganized and sticky. The ski locker was filled with 5 or 6 foldable chairs and not easily used for guest skis (we had to move that stuff out into the condo and then replace it before leaving). Little things like that. Could it use a little makeover, organization or renovation? Sure. But in owner's defense, that seemed to be factored into the price and the unit was not misrepresented, so 5 stars. And since I do all the cooking and ski storage, I was the only one it bothered, everyone else thought it was great."

  • Perfect Rental

    "Excellent 3BR/2BA condo that was truly ski on/ski off. The place was as advertised and the owner was a pleasure to work with. We would definitely rent again in the future!"
