Great family summer vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

Great house for family and friends summer vacation! The house has plenty of space to spend time together but also privacy for all. The view is awesome, had many meals on the screened in porch, sat outside around fire pit, walked to Plymouth State Park (Echo Lake) to swim, kayak and paddleboard. There were plenty of towels, bed linens and well-stocked kitchen. Our family composed of adults/young adultsrented for three weeks and enjoyed every day!

Great Family Reunion Spot

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my husband, brothers and their kids, ranging in age from 4 - 29. It was a great spot to relax and the house was clean, well stocked and spacious. We enjoyed the fire pit area and even had a chance to see a bear, hence the name of the place! I highly recommend this VRBO!

The Perfect Family Wedding House

  • 5 of 5

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."

Best house EVER!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bear down for a week in mid Aug. We had two families, 4 adults and 3 children, and had more room that imagined!!

House was perfect. Clean, bright, and just wonderful in all ways!!

Large TV in main living room with surround sound and a very beautiful fireplace that was a breeze to light. Bedrooms were large with very comfortable linen. Bathrooms had great showers- my son even took his very FIRST shower all by himself here!!

We had a GREAT week at Bear Down and plan on staying again next year!

Thank you Randy for sharing your home with us.

Beautiful home, fantastic view! Loved the open concept kitchen/dining room/living room. Made it easy for the family to spend time together during meals/meal prep, and the kitchen was well-stocked. Plenty of privacy/spacious yard, and we enjoyed the fire pit every night. Very comfortable beds. This was my first trip to the Ludlow area, and I will definitely go back. Many lakes and swimming holes to explore, and plenty of hiking. Thanks for a great week!

Wonderful, wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

Randy and Lori really knew what they were doing when building this house. Top notch finishes; great layout for multiple families; and all the conveniences that you could want. Kids had a blast skiing/riding at nearby Okemo and Killington, and even sledding outside the house. We always, always enjoy our time here.
