About the property

AVOID THE BASE! SKI TO THE BUBBLE LIFT! 4 Bedrooms 2 Baths, Sleeps 8, spacious

Fantastic Ski-on/Ski- off access! Our condo is at the top of the South Ridge Quads A and B. Walk a few steps to the trail from your door and start your day already high on the mountain and with no need to ski to the base, avoid base area congestion! Ski right over to the high speed Sunburst Six enclosed bubble lift with heated seats, the Sachem Quad lift, or the Black Ridge Triple. Boarders can go directly to the Pull or the Black Ridge Triple to go to the Progression Park and the AmpEnergy Supreme. Our Winterplace location makes stopping home for lunch or a quick change of clothes a breeze. In addition, the chairlift from the Clocktower base drops you directly to our unit for an easy return at the end of an exciting day. Easy access to the Snow Star area for young daycare and the lesson meeting area for all ages. On the main trail to the Base Lodge, we always have snow, regardless of the weather. It's that convenient! Our unit is located close to the pool and hot tubs! Park in front of your door, unload and relax.

Great WiFi, 2 designated free parking places.

The interior is as great as the location!

Our spacious atrium living/dining area with wood burning fireplace (unlimited free fire wood is stacked nearby) and two story picture window is the perfect place to stop in for hot chocolate and relax after a day of fun and adventure and enjoy company while watching the snow cats groom the mountain for the very best conditions the next day. The main floor also has a master bedroom with a queen bed. It has direct access to the balcony and full bathroom. We have blackout curtains. It has a large two door closet. The second and third bedrooms have two twin beds each and large two door closets. Both have access to the second full bath. The entrance to the unit has a mud room with lots of space for everyone’s ski gear. There is a sitting area to comfortably put on your boots, pegs to hang up all your clothes, and a baseboard heater to warm up gloves and hats. Right off the entrance is our laundry room with an oversized washer and dryer. The kitchen has everything you need to eat in for all meals: stove, oven, microwave, toaster, two drip coffee pots, large refrigerator/freezer, garbage disposal, dishwasher, large selection of pots, pans, crockpot and other cooking items.

** We just purchased 2 new chairs for in front of the atrium window and have yet to get them photographed. A pleasant surprise when you arrive.

Other things to note

You receive 2 parking passes for your stay. Since our location is ski-on/ski-off, their can be some people that try to sneak into our parking! So, they do tow cars without a pass. I need your make, license plate numbers and state of registration to get your parking passes. They will be waiting for you in the unit upon your arrival. If you are bringing a 3rd car, please let me know and I will try to accommodate that for you.

A perfect spot for a SPRING, SUMMER AND FALL stay. Enjoy hiking on the trails of Okemo mountain right out your door.

About Susan Kibler

Adoption consultant, real estate professional and personal trainer.

Susan Kibler purchased this condo in 1995

Why Susan Kibler chose Ludlow

When I searched for a ski vacation home, I visited almost every ski area in the North East. I loved Okemo. Okemo has the greatest snow coverage of any mountain. They make snow constantly and skiing often continues into April. The trails are impeccably groomed.

We also found the mountain very friendly. Skiers are polite and chat on the lifts. Totally unpretentious.

Okemo easily accessible from New York City and Boston.

Unlike many mountains, Okemo has a genuine village (Ludlow) with great local places with lots of surprises to explore year round. The restaurants are great (It is a must to visit Harry’s. Try the shrimp and corn bisque!). There are lots of local attractions from the delicious wine and cheese shop to glass makers and beautiful nature destinations. Great local markets too (Check out Singletons. It has everything including great milk vodka.)

It is great for kids, the children’s programs are amazing. My son is skiing better than us and he looks forward to going. The instructors love kids and it shows!

Our unit is very bright and cheery and we find it a relaxing get away in all seasons.

We come to get away from the NJ summer heat and my husband fly fishes at some great local holes and always hike to the fire tower at the top of the mountain.

We love being so high up on the mountain during ski season. We never have to go to the base and can totally avoid the base lift lines. You definitely feel spoiled!

What makes this condo unique

Bright and cheery. Obviously, ski on/ski off -great for hot chocolate and lunch breaks. Our two story high windows look out on forest, providing privacy and beautiful views in every season.

We have everything you need for a comfortable stay. It is a second home for us, not just "a rental". For example we have 2 coffee pots, one for decaf and one for regular. Specialty glasses for everything from beer to margaritas! We have what you need to make your stay your own, from pizza pans to toasters for bagels.

Lots of board games for children, puzzles and books. TV/DVDs in two bedrooms in addition to the living room so all can see what they like.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your Condo is very nice, and cozy. Everything is so convinent. I love the deck and I love the loft! This place is amazing. I wish my house was like this. There are doors and doors and more doors that lead to different rooms. I feel like I am in "Alice in Wonderland" it is so very interesting. And I absolutely love the interior decorating. Some of it is chic and some of it is just cozy looking and makes me want a cup of hot chocolate. Even though it is like 80 degrees! Well thank you this is a very nice condo and definately beats staying in some hotel.

Perfect condo for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Susan's condo and did not want to leave. It was very well-stocked, comfortable, and relaxing, with lots of space for our family, and the location was wonderful. We visited for a summer vacation, but it clearly would be a perfect condo for winter also. Susan is a great owner to work with, and we really hope to be back again soon. If you are searching for properties in the area, I would suggest putting this at the top of your list if it is available and fits your family's needs for number of bedrooms. Okemo itself is a wonderful place for a family vacation.

A great weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our three-night fall visit to Winterplace. The condo was clean, roomy, and comfortable. It was easy to get to the Okemo Adventure Park and many restaurants (we found Harry's Cafe delicious and family friendly). We loved playing the many games and puzzles and appreciated the well-stocked kitchen. The pool was warm and we mostly had it to ourselves. It was easy to check in and out. The kids have asked to come back next year!

Great place for a big family.

  • 5 of 5

Ludlow is great in the summer and the condo is awesome. Our kids went swimming every day. The scenery in the area is beautiful and everything you need is a mile away. We will definitely book again if we get the chance.

This was a beautiful property and cleverly designed condo that was extremely comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We were traveling for a writing retreat and found it to be a wonderful place for the work we had to do. It rained so we were tempted by the beautiful woods and lakes all around. It was a great pleasure to be there and we hope to go back!

Perfect condo for a perfect family weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to Susan’s condo was a summer weekend get-away. Our family and our young grandchildren loved the pool and activities at Okemo’s Adventure Zone which is easily accessible from the parking lot at Jackson Gore and has lots of activities for all. We had fine meals at Sam’s Steakhouse and Mr. Darcy’s Bar and Grill. We also explored the village of Ludlow and the Vermont Country Store in nearby Weston.

The condo is well appointed and was impeccably clean. There is ample seating and sleeping accommodations with linens provided. We were appreciative of the laundry, pool and condo’s location. We also found Susan’s pre-visit email information especially helpful and comprehensive. We would heartily recommend Winterhaven for any of the four seasons!

Convenient trail access

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this condo. We had three nice days of skiing and the location of the condo offers great ski-in-ski-out convenience. There was plenty of room for two families. Windows and doors are a bit drafty so when it is cold make sure to close the curtains!

Thanks for sharing your condo!
