Space 3,000 sq. ft.
Property type chalet
Minimum Stay 2 - 5 nights


About the property

Bedrooms 4, Bathrooms 3

Our Contemporary Ski House is less than 4 miles from Okemo Mountain Resort. It is situated on 10 private acres in the South Hill section of Ludlow, VT with lovely views of Okemo Mountain.

Before we built our house we rented a lot of others and this is what we learned from them:

There's a large mudroom for skis, boots, boards and coats. Please leave your shoes here - it keeps the rest of the floors clean and dry!

The kitchen is large and open to the family room with a big island. It is well-stocked with everything from cookie sheets to cork screws. There are filters for the drip coffee maker, the spice cabinet is equipped with most anything you'd need to make a great meal.

The family room has a wood stove, satellite TV and lots of seating (don't you hate those houses that sleep 12 but only seat 3?). We've even got a mitten and hat warmer (dryer) on the hearth next to the wood stove.

There are 3 full baths with plenty of hot water (we've never run out), so no one has to wait to take a shower after a long day of skiing / boarding / sledding.

There are 4 bedrooms (3 have queen size beds, 1 has two combo futon / bunk beds) and there's also a sleeping loft with 2 double futons and 3 twin platform beds complete with lots of blankets and pillows. Linen service (sheets, pillow cases and towels) is available for an extra fee or you can bring your own to save $.

There's a large driveway that can usually handle 5 cars without the need to jockey them around when someone needs to get out.

There's DRY firewood stacked inside on the rack in the mudroom along with buckets of kindling. We leave some fire starters out next to the wood stove for each rental group.

Perfect Ludlow Chalet near Okemo

  • 5 of 5

We had a family gathering with eight of us and this house was a perfect fit. Plenty of beds and 3 full bathrooms. Everyone really enjoyed the place. Beautiful wrap around deck. Nice lot in a country setting with views of Okemo ski area. The place was very clean and the woodstove made the place very cozy. The owners Bob and Sue were very quick to respond. I would definitely go back to this rental.

Great House for Big Groups

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I were looking for a nice house to spend for BBQing and hanging out on a long holiday weekend.

First I just want to stay I've dealt with a lot of rental property owners and very few have been as easy to communicate with as Bob. He answered every question I had extremely promptly. He was extremely accommodating for myself and my friends and easy to contact when we had a question or issue.

The house is big with PLENTY of bed space. It was so nice to have bedding for me and all of my friends. It's great for hosting large parties. Saturday we had a great day of playing games on the lawn, using the hottub, lying on the outdoor wrap around deck, grilling and having a campfire with smores at night. Sunday was pouring rain the whole day, but the house easily lends itself to being able to hang out in the big living room/kitchen and playing wii and pingpong downstairs. Even in a wash out rain day we had a great time.

I will say that the house is a little older and some things need a bit of replacing and TLC. We had a few issues our first day with a couple of things not working, but Bob answered me right away and sent someone to deal with the problems.

Though the house is indeed older, I have researched and searched for many rentals and almost none offer all the amenities and space as this place for this price. It's extremely hard to beat. I hope to be back again!

Owner's Response: Just a quick note on some updates that have been completed at the house: New engineered vinyl plank flooring has been installed throughout the basement rec room. This same flooring has also been laid in the basement bathroom. New toilet has been installed in the main floor bathroom. Two new horseshoe pits have been built and installed in the side yard. A fire pit with lots of seating has been constructed in the yard next to the pond.

Bear Hill Chalet

  • 5 of 5

Every thing I expected and hoped for. 3 adults and 6 children you can imagine how hard it can be to entertain. While at the house all had something to do, boys outside working the campfire, girls playing ping pong and reading books on the large deck. Many nice attractions locally (Buttermilk Falls we loved) to break up the day. Shopping 3 miles away. We may make this an annual trip. Oh and lets not forget the morning visit of the black bear we all waited for every morning around 5am.
