  • The Perfect Family Wedding House

    "We had a wonderful stay at Bear Down. The location was ideal for the wedding event at Camp Plymouth. The place is bigger than it appears on the VRBO web site and it was great to have a large living space for family from both sides to mingle between events and for the bride to dress with her Mom and girl friends. The owner, Randy, was very accommodating for a special request that we had and was very response via text on a minor question on getting the WiFi reset. He keeps the house well supplied with essentials - spices, condiments - with a simple policy "please help your self. If you finish something replace it.""

  • Great Time in a Great Home!

    "This home is beautiful and situated on a wonderful piece of property with amazing views. From the moment we opened the door we were all impressed with the lovely decorative style as well as feeling very comfortable in each and every room. This house was spotless, it is obvious that this home is well taken care of throughout the seasons. There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out and the large dining room table made sharing meals a pleasure. The kitchen is extremely well equipped with anything you could possibly need. Each bedroom and beds are beautifully decorated, very inviting for a great nights sleep. I recommend this home for any family or group. We had no issues during our stay but were confident that our concerns would be answered immediately. Our group consisted of skiers and non-skiers (shoppers). The skiers loved the short drive to the mountain and the shoppers loved all the shops throughout the area. I would not hesitate to return to this home!"

  • Ski Getaway

    "What a great week. This was such a lovely home and perfect for our three families. I only wish we brought our dog! This home was very spacious and so well stocked. We had fun cooking meals and the big farm table was perfect for the size for our group. The hot tub was a hit as well as the downstairs room with all the video games and pool table. The town of Ludlow was very close by as well as Okemo Mountain. The owners were a pleasure to deal with. We would definitely go back."

  • You can't go wrong here

    "The wife and I with our two teenage boys, found this fantastic condo available for a long weekend. I have been renting ski area condos for week/weekend trips for over 30 years. I must say that this was one of the best I have ever rented. FULLY stocked with everything you could need. Pots and pans in excellent condition. (never had that before in a rental) paper products and everyday supplies were abundant. Firewood right outside the door(never lit a fire) but a stack of starts was there at the ready. The short walk (30 Yards) to the slopes made it an easy start every morning and a great mid day stop. We bought our tickets online ahead of time and found we could pick them up Friday night at the clock tower, this made the trip even better. We never had to move the truck or stand in a ticket line. We skied right to the lift. Found the "Bubble" lift was the only line we had to stand in and avoided it for most of the trip. Never a line at any other lift all weekend. The place is may be a wee bit difficult to find, but we were blessed to have the owners meet us at the bottom with the key and give us a personal tour up the mountain. As for the owners. Two of the nicest people I have met in a long time. I can't wait to speak with them again and rent this unit over and over. If there is a downside, it would have to be the steps. Not everything could be perfect!!!"

Okemo Travel Tips

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.

Okemo, VT is a great Family Fun Destination

Okemo is a very family oriented ski resort area, and for this reason many families choose to stay in Okemo vacation rentals rather than hotels. This set up means you can enjoy meals on your own timetable, have enough space for the family to relax, enjoy some time together in front of the fireplace on your Vermont vacation, chatting about the day's exciting ski and snowboarding activities. Bed linen, towels, laundry facilities and a fully equipped kitchen are typically a part of vacation rentals and makes family lodging easy and convenient.

There are five main peaks near Okemo lodging, and ski runs cater to both beginner and advanced skiers.
