Recent Okemo reviews

  • Ludlow house

    "The house was in an excellent location. It was situated one minute from the town of Ludlow and 5 minutes from the Okemo ski area. The house is surrounded by a lovely wooded area and there was quite a bit of privacy from any surrounding neighbors. The house was well maintained and very clean and well- equipped when we arrived. The structure of the home was attractive and really felt like a true ski area house, however the décor needs updating. Although the furniture was adequate, it was not particularly attractive and appeared quite dated. The master suite was quite comfortable and the mattresses in the master suite and in the bedroom with the twin beds were comfortable, The mattresses on the 4 bunk beds were quite hard and uncomfortable and we needed to pad them with blankets for our adult kids to sleep on them. The bunk bed mattresses are better suited to younger children. It was very convenient to have a full washer and dryer in the house. We needed to contact the owners once during our stay with a question about the fireplace and they were very responsive to our inquiry. I would recommend this house to a family with younger children, rather than adult children. I was impressed with the cleanliness of the house and with the maintenance of the house. The only recommendation that I would make is to update the décor, to make this lovely home more attractive."

  • Perfect Winter Retreat

    "everything was exactly as promised, communication with owner was flawless and made arrival and departure simple. Okemo/Jackson Gore was very enjoyable for the whole family - friendly staff, not getting gouged on prices, courtesy on the mountain. Definitely would use the house again - note it a 10-15 min trip to the ski resort but this was not a issue, the house felt very private. I would recommend this place to a family or a couple looking for a quiet retreat. The resort down the road also had a good pool/sauna which we enjoyed (need a car to access)"

  • Great location, cozy cabin!

    "We were here during the Christmas week. We loved this cabin, loved the fireplace! Great location too. Owner had the firewood ready for us. Every day when we back home after skiing, the first thing were Building fires and the house became warm so quickly. Everyone enjoyed this peaceful, cozy cabin! Kitchen had everything we need. Had snow for the last day, but we had no problem to drive on the road. Thank you Corsi for sharing such a wonderful place with us."
