Overview

About the property

4 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom, Open Family & Dining Room With Cozy Fireplace

Beautiful family friendly home on a "secluded" 1+ wooded acre lot with an open main floor plan that features a family room with a warm and inviting fireplace, TV and seating for the entire group. Enter the house via the spacious mud room that will house all your skiing equipment. Cook meals in the fully equipped kitchen with breakfast bar seating, while enjoying the camaraderie of your family and friends as they relax in the family room, then move to the dining area to enjoy your meal and revel in stories from your day's adventures. The downstairs features 3 bedrooms and a full bath with washer & dryer. Two bedrooms have double bunks, easily sleeping 4 each... A great boys and girls set up. The 3rd bedroom has a full size bed. All rooms have full closets and dressers for all your clothes. The third floor features a big and beautiful master bedroom and bathroom with skylight in each. Grill on back deck, and great sleigh riding hill just off the side of the house with 4 spotlights to light up your nighttime sleighing fun, sleds are included.

Cable TV, DVD player and movies, wireless internet, games/cards provided.

House is located on Okemo Mountain, so you are never stuck in 'mountain traffic' - literally a one minute ride to the base lodge and 5 minutes to Jackson Gore. Drop your crew off at the base lodge and park, or grab the shuttle bus during the winter at the top of the street for a quick ride to either base location.

3 minute ride to the quaint town of Ludlow, which features bars, restaurants and retail and grocery shopping. Eat in or out - everything is so close and convenient. You can choose to enjoy the comfort of our mountain hideaway or make a night on the town.

Why Peter & Heather Sheehan chose Ludlow

This has been our family's 'happy place' since the first time we came to Okemo in 1988. We enjoyed Solitude slopes when there was just a trailer selling hot cocoa out of huge metal soup pots! Our kids, now 12 & 14, learned to ski on the bunny hills when they were just toddlers (yup, pacifiers in their mouths at 18 months, skiing with a leash!) It is the perfect place to enjoy a true family vacation - for years we have come to Okemo with our best friends and their kids, creating memories that will last a lifetime.

What makes this house unique

This house is perfect for families - the layout allows for the kids to spread out and have fun, and for everyone to have a great time in a casual atmosphere. For years we have made it our getaway. Let me give you a day in our life there: everyone gets up and grabs a quick breakfast while a few of the adults throw together the packed lunch for the day (a sandwich assembly line is really efficient!). We take the truck to the base lodge or Jackson Gore drop off, unload the gear, and park across the street at the main parking area (no mountain traffic, we are on the mountain). A quick boot up in the lodge, and we have an awesome day on the slopes! Back to the house, and the kids head out to the side yard for sleigh riding with the dads (beers in hand) while the moms (beers in hand) get easy dinner going. (or vise versa, the dads have been known to put together some great grilling!) fire in the fireplace, dinner served, showers done, kids hanging out playing games, and we all relax and enjoy until bedtime - and we wake up and do it again!

Great family house!

  • 5 of 5

My family had an excellent stay at this home over President's Week 2017. The owners could not have been nicer and the house was fantastic. Perfect ski house. I highly recommend it!

Great House Close to Okemo

  • 5 of 5

This is a cozy house, with a bit of architectural flair, that is well set up for families. The location is quite close to Okemo. Walking is possible, but with ski gear and kids, you may find driving or the shuttle a better option. We found it clean and well-furnished, and decorated with a bit of personality that reflects the owners.

Super cozy

  • 4 of 5

Our family felt right at home in this cozy Vermont house! We came for a visit off season in July and it was really very nice. The surrounding trees kept the heat outside. Our kids loved getting cozy on the big bean bag chair in the living room and playing one of the many board games or watching a movie. It is a two minute drive into town for pizza or groceries and a ten minute drive to the local lake beach to go swimming. We really enjoyed ourselves!

Awesome ski home

  • 5 of 5

A spacious, well laid out and very clean home. Great fireplace in the open living area with a well equipped kitchen. House has a great mudroom so you don't drag the snow and dirt inside. It's not ski in / ski out but is less than a 1 minute drive to the Okemo (Clock Tower) base area. Wifi was easy to set up. Several large flat screen TV's in the house. The owners are well organized and very much involved to make sure you have a great vacation. They are easy to deal with. I would stay here again
