The village of Ludlow, about 7 minutes from our cottage, is quintessential Vermont - it is all here in the Green Mountains and it is all beautiful - each season has its unique offerings. Many charming Vermont villages (Weston, Woodstock, Manchester, etc.) are within a 1 hour drive down beautiful country roads. Our house is on the largest lake in the area, 5 minutes from Okemo, 20 minutes from Killington. Good grocery shopping, restaurants and night-life are here in Ludlow, along with many other activities of your choosing, such as hiking, golfing, antiquing, and just relaxing. Besides great skiing/snowboarding, Okemo has a spa/fitness facility, ice skating rink, and 'adventure zone' with zip-lining and numerous other activities, excellent golf, swimming pool, etc. Several X-country ski areas are also nearby.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We live in southeastern CT, are 2 professionals (business owner, professor), and have 2 grown daughters (22 and 32).

Why the Owner Chose Ludlow, VT, USA:
We bought Hemlocks in 2004 and spent 1.5 years carefully renovating it, making the most of the cozy spaces. It has been in Barb's family since it was built in 1939, and she has many happy memories of summers on the lake and learning to ski at Okemo and Killington.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Sitting in the hot tub looking out over the lake with a glass of wine after skiing or hiking is heaven. Being on Lake Rescue is peaceful serenity, and we come up as often as we can. The lake is magical any season, and almost always quiet. Hemlocks is our second home, we keep it immaculate, and it is filled with personal items and extra touches that make it warm, welcoming, and fun.
