Fantastic Ski-on/Ski- off access! Our condo is at the top of Quad 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 one of three lifts (including to the main boarding trail). Our Winterplace location makes stopping home for lunch or a quick change of clothes a breeze. In addition, the chairlift from the base drops you directly to our unit for an easy return at the end of an exciting day. With our own lockers, no need to carry skis. 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.

A perfect spot for a SPRING, SUMMER AND FALL stay. Enjoy hiking on the trails of Okemo mountain right out your door. A nearby lake with a lovely beach is a great place to swim and picnic as well as canoe. We are right next to the Jackson Gore adventure fun zone with a mountain coaster, bungee trampoline, bouncy houses, disc golf on 2 courses, miniature golf, a climbing wall, AMP jumps onto an energy big air bag, Segway personal transport tours, mountain biking in the evolution bike park, a zipline, and several Haulback challenge course. Okemo has a summer camp for children (Camp Gokemo) whether your family is visiting for a week or weekend definitely check it out. Okemo offers scenic chairlift rides. The Green Mountain Rail offers scenic train rides. Fall offers amazing leaf-peeking.

If you like golf, Okemo has two 18-hole, championship golf courses that offer challenging play with spectacular scenery.

In the town of Ludlow and surrounding areas there is much to do. Great antiquing, fantastic restaurants, outlet shopping and feeding and playing with the huge fish at Orvis in Manchester. Visiting the famous country store in Weston or enjoying the great local fishing.

Of course, you can always sit on the balcony with a book and a drink and just relax!

Our home is the perfect location to have your spring, summer and fall Vermont get away.

The interior is as great as the location! Our spacious atrium living/dining area with wood burning fireplace (unlimited free wood) 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. In the summer open the windows to get a cool mountain breeze.

About Susan Kibler

Adoption consultant, real estate professional and personal trainer.

Susan Kibler purchased this condo in 1995

Why Susan Kibler chose Okemo

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.

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!

Great ski-on/off location

  • 4 of 5

We slept eight comfortably (three adults, five kids). This condo is a good value in a great location, especially for a family with young children and beginner skiers.

Ski and swim and sleep

  • 5 of 5

Susan's comfortable and convenient ski condo had it all for our large family group. Location location location...The adults and our 5 year old skiied down to base lodge each morning to join the grandparents and our 2 year old. We reconvened after the slopes closed at the condo pool and hot tubs, which are a short walk away.

You will not find a better combination of ski and swim right on the mountain at the top of the A quad lift!!! This all resulted in an early bedtime for the little ones. The adults then enjoyed a bit of board game action at the table. There is plenty of seating and everything you could possibly need in the kitchen.

The condo is set up in a flexible way with a master bedroom with adjoining bath, and twin beds that can be pushed together in three of the four bedrooms. Two of the twin bedrooms adjoin through a shared bathroom, which is perfect for parents who want night access to young kids. The open loft bedroom is great for older kids or early rising extra adults.

The condo also has plenty of towels and a washer dryer, meaning you can easily dry your bathing suit and your best set of ski mittens. The foyer can hold all your apparel and boots too.

In the unlikely event you do need anything at all that is not already provided, know that Susan will respond at lightning speed!!!

We loved this condo so much we stayed here twice, and hope to return next year. Thank you Susan!!!
