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!

Trip was awesome. House was perfect
Family weekend fun
As this was our first time using VRBO, we were a little concerned that the photos might not represent the real property. We were pleasantly surprised to find a warm and charming Vermont home. There was plenty of room for my husband and our grown children. We would recommend it for anyone looking for a place to stretch out and keep warm by the fireplace. The dining room was perfect for meals and card games. We got take out from Mojo Cafe, which allowed us to enjoy a delicious meal, without waiting in line. One morning, I watched a family of deer from the upstairs bathroom window. Thank you for making our first experience with VRBO a fun one!
We are so glad you were able to stay with us, and enjoyed the open and spacious layout of the main floor. It certainly is a great area for bringing the whole group together! The wildlife around the area is always fun to watch... occasionally there's some very large gatherings of turkeys.
Great location and house with attentive hosts.
We had three families stay over presidents day week and had a great time. House was in a great location and had ample room for us to be comfortable. There was a problem with the hot water one day but Peter had it serviced the same day. All in all a great place to stay for a ski vacation. Thanks for hosting us!
Loved having your family and friends stay with us.. you guys were great! The living room with the fireplace, all the couch space and that huge bean bag surely make for some great family/friend hanging out.
Yea sorry about the hot water hiccup... glad we were able to get it address quickly, and we've fixed the issue.
Please come back anytime, it was a pleasure to have you!

Great house for a big group!
I stayed here at the end of January 2018 with a group of 12 friends. It was a perfect setup for quality time with a big group of people. It wouldn’t be easy to walk to the slopes, but we were all able to drive the 2 minutes to the base or have one person shuttle some groups. I would definitely stay here again!
We're so glad your group had a wonderful time. The house is certainly set up well to host a large group and create a wonderful "togetherness" setting. You were great guest, and we'd love to have you back at any time.
Quiet cozy ski house
Everything you'll need for your stay and more. Will rent again if we are in the area
So glad you and your running group had a great stay, and congratulation on the VT 26.2! Happy to have you stay with us anytime.
Great family house!
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!
Jenn, we're so glad you and your family had such a great time. You were fantastic guests and we hope we have the opportunity to host you again!
