About Ed & GraceAnn Podlesny

For many years, we've been searching for the all around BEST mountain & New England town, and Okemo & Ludlow kept popping up first in our searches ...Keeping in mind that Location, Location, Location is the MOST Important factor, and when we finally found our 1860 home ....I had a Limousine Service for over 25 years, and the Service was as important!!! Grace Ann is a retired nurse, and her caring nature ways brings a lot to the table.

Ed & GraceAnn Podlesny purchased this house in 2014

Why Ed & GraceAnn Podlesny chose Ludlow

OKEMO IS A GREAT SKI MOUNTAIN AND HAVING THE SHUTTLE BUS ON WEEKENDS AND HOLIDAYS IS KEY. THE BUS RUNS ON A PUBLISHED SCHEDULE, EVERY 15 - 20 MINUTES, AND IS USUALLY ON TIME AS IT IS RUN BY OKEMO. IT IS ONLY 2 MILES TO THE SIDE OF THE OKEMO LODGE WHICH IS 100 YARDS FROM THE SKI LIFTS. MOST GUESTS PUT THEIR BOOTS ON BEFORE CATCHING THE SHUTTLE AND WALK DIRECTLY TO THE LIFTS. MUCH NICER THAN DRIVING TO A PARKING LOT AND GETTING A BUS TO THE LODGE.

What makes this house unique

THE HOME IS VERY LARGE WITH LOTS OF SPACE FOR EVERYONE. BEDROOMS HAVE CLOSETS AND ALL HAVE AT LEAST A DOUBLE BED FOR COUPLES (6 HAVE KINGS OR QUEENS). LIVING AREAS ARE LARGE AND THE DOWNSTAIRS AREA HAS THE DINING ROOM WITH TABLE FOR 12, KITCHEN WITH COOKING ISLAND W/6 BARSTOOLS AND LIVING ROOM ARE ALL OPEN AND HANDLE A LARGE CROWD. WIFI AND LARGE FLAT SCREEN TVS MAKE THE HOME COMFORTABLE.

Great house all around

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 different families all with little kids spend Presidents' Day 2017 there. It was perfect location and layout. Kids could go to bed and we could all stay up have dinner and socialize.

Snowey wonderland at Okemo!

  • 4 of 5

We had a perfect week at Okemo. After a couple years of a snow draught we were blessed with snow 3 out of 4 days. Your house fits our families need great. We only wish we could get shuttle service on weekdays. As I stated in your guest book there are a few things that need attention in the house such as the first floor oven and the lack of a remote that worked for the second floor TV. Overall the house is clean and well stocked. We will consider coming back for a third year.

The house is not what is posted on your site.

  • 1 of 5

The house has rot on the out side and not very clean in side. The owner is not very honest with you( liar). Never told me that he would be charging me 76.00 dollars to return my deposit. I would not recommend staying there again .

(which is clearly stated on the site )" To avoid any credit card fee which could be any where from ( 2-4%) , personal checks or e-check's are accepted , as stated on the site.

Lots and lots of space - clean - very central

  • 5 of 5

Had a great couple days midweek with 10 guys from work - this house hit all the important points being very clean, very large, with loads of space to spread out and a great place to get a big group together. Also very very central, easy walk into Ludlow (1 block away) to restaurants and bars and a quick (5min?) drive up to Okemo. Owner Ed also very helpful and responsive throughout. Will definitely stay again.

Awesome house, awesome skiing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at this property. With 26 adults staying in the house, it was not overcrowded and there wasn't even a back up for the bathrooms! The downstairs and upstairs living room was a great place for everyone to gather, eat and hangout. We loved the 2 kitchens and well stocked plates, utensils, towels and sheets. Quick and easy drive to Okemo for a great weekend skiing!
