About Lisa

We're a family that loves the mountains and the water, and relaxing in Vermont's Green Mountains. We were forced to move away from the area a few years back (because of the recession) but get back to our Vermont home whenever we can!

Lisa purchased this house in 2002

Why Lisa chose Okemo

Because of its proximity to lakes, mountains, and world-class skiing. Because it's got a friendly, small-town atmosphere. Because NY and Boston are so close!

What makes this house unique

Serenity. Peace. Nature. Togetherness. The country store across the street, and the little library around the corner. The babbling brook out back. Walking down to the lake with fishing poles or kayak paddles. Drinking beer and playing horseshoes in the yard.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to let you know my family had a wonderful week at the Little Brook House. There was room for all of us. We enjoyed the Brook but all the rain we have had this Spring and Summer has made it a raging brook!! The man at the Tyson Village Store said it’s usually a calm stream at this time of year!We had one full day and night of torrential rains and an afternoon and night. We got to sit out and play in the yard with our grandchildren.We used your list of 20+ favorite things to do also. We had stayed in the area the previous 2 years and had already done some but found quite a few new suggestions. We actually saw a moose at the crossing!We will probably head back to the Echo Lake area next year and hope your home is available for us.

We had a large group for our stay and there was plenty of room for everyone. The place was very clean. It was definitely a plus having the general store across the street.

Very dirty house

  • 1 of 5

The house was very dirty inside. Most of the dishes were old and damaged. The beds were smelling, the carpets were dirty. It seems that they just want to rent the house and don't care about it. However, The location and the back porch with river were great. Totally, doesn't recommend this house at all! be Careful!!!

Owner's Response: The house has new carpeting and the cleaning service, which is exemplary, constantly monitors dishes and kitchen stock to make sure there is enough and that it's in good condition. There is a classic Pfalzcraft dish set as well as unbreakable Corel ware. We also just purchased new furniture, lighting and art. I would hardly call these comments grounds for a 1-star review and suggest people read other reviews when making their lodging decision. Every season you get a complainer or two; its the nature of the rental business. But this is a lovely, comfortable vacation home.

Bring your own towels

  • 3 of 5

This house is completely sufficient and functional for a big group, but lots of little things made it not as nice as it could be. The ad suggests that you don't need to bring towels because all linens and towels are provided. Unfortunately our group followed these instructions and were surprised to find that there were insufficient towels provided, and the towels that were provided were very small and thin. There were quite a few other very small things that made the stay less enjoyable than it could have been: multiple lamps that were broken, light bulbs that were blown or just missing, we couldn't figure out how to control the temperature, there was no hand soap provided in the kitchen, a pull out sofa was half-broken with the mattress falling through, there was only one frying pan in the kitchen (to feed everyone in a place that sleeps 14, I would think more than one frying pan would be provided), and the owner sent us directions to the wrong house. These are all fairly minor concerns, but they add up.

That being said, the house has some lovely benefits. It has a working dishwasher. There are good instructions for testing the hot tub to make sure the water is good with instructions about which chemicals to add for different test results. It has a shower upstairs and a bath/shower downstairs, both of which worked well. It has plenty of room for parking cars. The stream behind the house provided for a really nice hike behind the property. Although the house is right on Route 100 it is set back just far enough that it doesn't feel like it's on the major road. Also, being right across the street from the general store is very convenient. There is an extensive VHS movie collection.

Owner's Response: We thank this group for sharing issues they had while staying in our home, because we always want our guests to have a wonderful, worry-free vacation experience. Our property manager is available 24/7 and could have remedied their problems swiftly -- but they never contacted us or called him during their stay. As soon as we found out about the broken sofabed it was prepared, but the renters waited until after they left to complain. We could also have easily told them how to control the three-zone heating system, designed to keep every area of the house cozy and warm on cold winter nights. Again, they didn't ask! The lamps are being repaired (most just needed to be plugged in), and a towel and kitchen pot inventory is being taken (although new towels and pots and pans were purchased just before the winter season). We work hard to maintain our home to the highest standards and are immediately responsive to guests when they contact us. We can't, however, help people who "suffer in silence" and wait till after they have left to complain. The Little Brook House at Echo Lake is welcoming and ready to go for future renters. If you run into any issues during your stay, we encourage you to contact our property manager right away!

Weekend Trip

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I just got back from a weekend stay at the Little Brook house and it was great. The house was big and very clean and slept the 12 of us easily. Lots of things to do in the summer. The front yard was big and the owners had a volleyball net, badminton, and even a horseshoe pit. The back deck was nice and secluded with a running brook going right through the yard, and the hot tub was great even in the warm weather. The house is minutes away from the lake and there is ton to do in the area. I plan a weekend trip every year and these owners were a pleasure to deal with. I definately recommend the house to anyone going up to the area in any season.

Our group of seven adults and four kids stayed at the Little Brook House in October. It's a lovely house. There's a wonderful, private hot tob on the the rear deck next to the brook. There's great hiking on the mountain right out back and the facilities in the house are very nice. There was room to spare for our group and everyone enjoyed their stay.

We just got back from our stay at the Little Brook House. It was fantastic. The house is large and comfortable. It has all amenities that you could want, and the general store across the street is a definite bonus. I would highly recommend this house to anyone. Thanks!

Map

Our home is located in the North Ludlow Lakes region. It's a short walk to Echo Lake, where we have a boat. It's 1 1/2 miles from Camp Plymouth State Park. South 4 miles is Okemo Ski Resort, and north 11 miles is Killington Ski Resort. We are on a scenic Vermont road that offers beautiful driving and bike riding. the fishing is great. A wonderful hiking trailhead is a three minute walk up the road. Across the street is a little country store with everything you need.
