Why Wendi Wachtel chose Ludlow
I traveled through the area in the summer of 2015 and fell in love with Vermont and the area. That fall, my husband and I found an old duplex built in 1835. It had great bones, lots of natural sunlight and plenty of potential to make it a unique getaway infused with character. Ludlow and its surrounding towns and attractions made the location perfect for a year-round destination that families and friends could enjoy. The old home was in rough condition but structurally sound. All it needed was creative updating and ingenuity. After lots of hard work, many hours of labor and lots of creative DIY projects, we are happy to host guests in the the North House Lodge and as of 1/2020, add the now the Mill Place to our group as well. . We aren't done yet! Is a project house ever really done? Visit us each season to see what's new and what we've changed.

..... found my ideal home away .....
Okemo is my home mountain, away from home, and has been my family’s winter vacation destination since the 1990’s. I’ve leased many homes during this time and have only encountered one nasty experience (amen). Yet not surprising, if given the chance to change something in each unit I would, however, that IS NOT the case with this home or the ease with which booking, entry, communications and expectations flowed.
Wendi certainly is experienced in the investment market and it is evidenced throughout the process itself and especially in the accommodations and how Wendi has presented the space.
This was a quick end of season trip (March 2020) and I found the home more than suitable and very accommodating. My ever present personal complaint with ALL units I’ve leased is the lack of free space for our traveling gear due to the owners decorating choices or it being a place to display the overflow of their personal effects which then lets little room for the tenants belongings and, increases the chance of something being damaged due to overcrowding.
Wendi, your tasteful minimalist approach was extremely refreshing, all needs were met with regard to amenities including kitchen and dining equipment, bathroom and bedroom linens, all appliances and electronic conveniences and the home was exceptionally clean.
I never measure or grant across the board high ratings, but this experience did deserve high rating. Sadly, my kudos to you Wendi may prompt accelerated bookings for you but in turn, may hinder my scheduling of my next visit to your home, and my Okemo mountain, til then, JJohnson
Cozy house on Ski Bus Route
Great location on ski bus route, easy to and from Okemo and walking into town. House was clean and cozy. Owner was responsive to questions. Our only suggestion was that there were barely enough dishes/utensils for our party of 7. The kitchen is tight but usable -- but if you want to cook in the house, the kitchen could be better stocked.
Perfect location and very clean!
The house is very clean and updated. The house is on the Okemo shuttle route and the pick up location is right at the corner. It is extremely convenient and quick to get to and from the mountain. The heating was consistent and easy to control which made for a very comfortable stay. The beds were very comfortable and there were plenty of towels. Complimentary Shampoo/conditioner and body wash was a nice touch in the showers. Plenty of toilet paper, paper towels, cleaning products, and a well stocked kitchen was quite helpful. We enjoyed our stay!
2nd time renting this property. Clean,well furnished. Close,easy access to town and ski slopes. Owner is very responsive should you need anything during your stay.
Great Cozy House in Town
We stayed during a ski weekend. Great house as advertised with 2 master bedrooms and 1 bedroom with 3 single beds. Nice living space on the first floor. The house was clean and well furnished. The location was fantastic. The shuttle to Okemo stopped next door and was extremely convenient for skiing. There are several restaurants, coffee shops, and breakfast places within walking distance. Plenty of parking for 3-4 cars in the driveway. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks!
Okemo Ski Mountain is just over 1 mile away. Skip the parking and catch the free shuttle steps away from the front door.
