River House was exactly what our group of 15 needed. The location in town and proximity to Okemo cannot be beat. We were a diverse group of singles, couples, a toddler and a small dog. River House accommodated us perfectly. The lower level flop room fit all our singles with room to spare...and two people even chose to sleep on the full mattresses in the loft.
The kitchen was perfect for family style dinners and the saloon level was great for game night. I was initially discouraged when I forgot to pack board games, especially Taboo. But, to my surprise, River House had Taboo and several puzzles.
The hot tub was ready to go when we arrived and it was much needed in the sub-zero temperatures!
Ultimately, what made our vacation even better was how seamless and easy it was to work with Amy from the time we booked. She was responsive to all of my inquiries leading up to the trip, guaranteed a pack n' play and high chair and even called the day of check-in to make sure we arrived and had no issues getting in. During our stay, a fuse went out on the saloon level and we had difficulty getting the front bedroom up to a comfortable temperature. But, there was a binder in the house with all contact numbers and we were able to get in touch with Chris immediately who directed us to the fuse box. After about 24 hours, the front bedroom did climb up to about 68 degrees, but it started to cool down again toward the end of our stay. This may be because of its proximity to the front door.
Ultimately, River House was exactly what we needed and we will be contacting Amy again for our next trip to Ludlow.
Thank you for a great vacation!
