About Susan Wakefield

Okemo has been a special place for our family for over twenty years. Our daughter learned to ski at Okemo. Just three hours from home in Connecticut this ski chalet has been an all season vacation getaway for us. We have just as much fun in the summer hiking and at the lake as we do skiing and snowmobiling all winter. We hope you love the house as much as we do. So convenient you can go home for lunch and be back on the mountain quicker than fighting the lines at the lodge. Right off Route 103 makes this home private yet accessible to the main road that takes you to the mountain and town. All the years we rented the most important thing for us was convenience to the mountain. Three miles to Jackson Gore and just minutes further to the base lodge of Okemo. We hope you enjoy your time here as much as you do. Safe travels!

Susan Wakefield purchased this chalet in 2010

Why Susan Wakefield chose Okemo

LOCATION!! We rented for years before owning our home. Our biggest disappointment was being told we were close to the mountain and it turned out to be a twenty minute drive. With our house you are 3 MILES to the mountain, just minutes away. Spend your time skiing not driving. Our home is cozy, clean and comfortable and the best option for those looking to be close to the mountain without the high cost of slope side lodging. We are right off Route 103 so the roads are plowed and our property manager will plow the driveway after every snowfall so you're never stuck in the snow. All you need are your skis and food and you are GOOD TO GO!

What makes this chalet unique

Location - 3 miles to Okemo's Jackson Gore entrance and just a few minutes further to the main mountain. Close to town for food, restaurants and shopping. Property manager nearby will open and warm up the home for your arrival and plow after each snowfall. Late night arrivals will find the house brightly lit, warm and ready for you to start your vacation. Flexible arrival and departure times are permitted by owner when possible. Safe travels.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ms. Wakefield,

We had a great time at your home. I appreciated the proximity to the slopes and being able to get the kids home and warmed up quickly. I found the layout of the house with the enclosed outdoor ski rack very convenient for loading and unloading our ski's everyday. I also liked having the downstairs area where we could take off our shoes and wet things before going up to the kitchen and living room. My four boys really loved the loft area and declared it to be theirs 30 seconds after we arrived. Thank you for having toilet paper, paper towels and trash bags for us. That was very convenient. The dryer worked wonderfully and was greatly appreciated. I felt your kitchen was well stocked with essentials. I made pancakes and waffles for breakfast (using your mixing bowls, whisk, grill pan, waffle iron and spatulas) and chili, hot dogs, fruit slices and sandwiches for lunch and dinner (taking advantage of the cutting board, knives and pots). It was nice having aluminum foil and Ziploc bags to store and heat up leftovers. My wife and I were happy to have access to the Keurig machine and used it daily. I even bought some hot chocolate K-cups for the kids. It's possible we might try to make it up there again sometime before the end of March for a long weekend trip (the Okemo folks gave us some lift ticket vouchers). If we do I will contact you. Thank you once again for everything. You have a wonderful home.

Family Ski Vacation at Okemo

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location...the house is ideally located near Okemo, literally minutes away from the Jackson Gore entrance. Getting to and from the mountain was a breeze and given its location you avoid the Okemo traffic jam at the end of the day. We have a young family of 5 (3 kids 10, 7 and 5) and they loved sleeping up in the loft space! The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed and more for our short stay (Friday - Sunday). The owners were very accommodating, quick to respond and an absolute pleasure to deal with.

Family Ski Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful family winter get away. The chalet was clean, freshly painted and inviting. The kitchen was well stocked for all our cooking needs. We enjoyed taking walks in the woods and loved the surrounding area. It was just minutes from Okemo and town. The owners answered all of our questions, were very informative and quick to reply. Thank you for a wonderful vacation. The Moore Family

This place was simply great.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely vacation home very conveniently located near Ludlow, VT. The house has lots of space for guests, a full kitchen and a very private 'in the woods' setting. The wood burning stove on the first floor is fabulous, and the loft beds were perfect for us and our kid. I very much recommend this rental and look forward to returning when we can.

Great value

  • 5 of 5

This home was clean and had all of the necessities without the frills. The location was perfect for skiing and riding at okemo, and the price is right. The setup works well for a 4 or 5 person share, more if you don't mind sharing beds. I would recommend this house.
