Overview

Ludlow House Rental Photos and Description

3+ BR, 2+ BA, Sleeps up to 9.

Private wooded setting on 80+ acres, pond, mountain views, spacious living room with wood stove, sun room. Beautiful mixture of antique & contemporary furnishings. Writing desks in every room for the contemplative visitor. Satellite TV, VCR, stereo with cassette and CD players. We now have WIRELESS internet as well! Jenn-Air stove and oven, microwave, and fully furnished kitchen. We even supply the cottage with good sharp knives for the gourmet cook! Grill, picnic table, hammocks and tire swing on the property.

My response time: I always respond promptly to any inquiry by phone or e-mail. My spam catcher occasionally stops these e-mails from getting to me, so if you don't hear back quickly, please try calling.

The area: Cavendish is a quiet town, located 7 miles from Ludlow and the Okemo Ski Resort. The Cottage at Stone Walls is situated on 75 acres outside of the village. There are many historic, tourist, and outdoor attractions in the area, but if you want peace and quiet, you have only to stay around the property and you will not be disturbed. Writing tables in every room, beautiful sunny views to inspire you. Plenty of room for your children to play and run around outside, tire swings, hammocks, etc.

References: I would be happy to put you in contact with previous guests of the Cottage, many of whom return year after year.

Wonderful house and location

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed two year in row, and intend going back. It is in an ideal location for a relaxing week in Vermont and the house is perfect for famalies. The pond is great fun for the kids and the large grounds are safe to let them run around in. We highly recommend the house.

The perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5
First let me start by saying the pictures do not do justice to this beautiful property. It was much more up to date and modern than the pictures let on. It is a really interesting design. All the charm of a traditional cape with many modern touches that make it just that much more comfortable and enjoyable. An abundance of fresh towels and 2 full bathrooms was a huge plus because we were staying with another couple.The owner was amazing in her communication with us and help with where to go and what to see. It was the perfect vacation with the perfect place to stay and we will definitely be back! Thank you so much Joannah!

Quiet, comfortable and close to great skiing

  • 5 of 5
This was our second trip to the Cottage, which is nestled in the peaceful Vermont hills. The house is clean and comfortable and spacious enough for our family of four. Our dog loved running in the field and woods across the road and our boys liked relaxing in front of the fire after a satisfying day on the slopes. I hope that we can return next year!

Wonderful Place to Celebrate a Milestone Birthday!

  • 5 of 5
Since this was my first time renting a vacation home, I was a bit nervous about going through with it. A host of questions ran through my mind: What if the place doesn't look anything like the photographs on the website? What if they don't let me bring my dogs? What if the place is rundown, dirty and creepy?

For answers, I turned to the reviews on Home Away. After reading some wonderful comments about The Cottage at Stone Walls and talking to the owner Joannah, I felt at ease going forward with the rental. Not only were my fears unrealized but the Cottage turned out even better than I had imagined. The place was very clean, spacious, beautiful and dog friendly! And Joannah was so wonderful - she made sure we had everything we needed and was very easy to deal with.

My weekend was spent snowboarding and tubing at Okemo, located just a few miles away. A huge grocery store and medical center were also just a short drive away. At the Cottage, my favorite spot was near the fireplace where I spent my evenings relaxing with a cup of hot tea!

I loved The Cottage. My friends loved it. Our two small dogs loved it. But most of all, my husband - who was celebrating a milestone birthday - loved it!

We had a great time and will definitely come back!

Delightful Christmas stay

  • 5 of 5
My extended family, including my husband, two adult children, sister, husband and Jasper the grateful rescue dog spent Christmas week of 2011 at the Cottage at Stone Walls. The cottage is not only lovely, but roomy enough to allow each of us some privacy if desired. The kitchen was well stocked with cookware for the family dinners we prepared each evening. Our group was evenly divided between skiers and non-skiers. Jasper and I took lovely walks on the adjacent roads, followed by reading by the fireplace. I have read other reviews by those who have stayed during the summer, and would love to visit during that season myself. Joanna was very accommodating and easy to deal with. A very pleasant, relaxing place to spend time!

Owner's Response: I don't want this response to be on the site. The only correction I'd make is that my name is spelled Joannah, not Joanna. Otherwise, the review is fine, wonderful, in fact. Sheila and her family were lovely to deal with as well.

What a wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, along with our 2 labrador retrievers, really enjoyed our vacation week at the Cottage at Stone Walls. The cottage is close to many hiking areas in Vermont, which is what we did every day, and served as a great home base. The setting is beautiful, and the dogs liked to swim in the pond across the street after our daily adventures. It was quite easy to make ourselves at home.

Wonderful walks in the woods, bicycling through back roads, holing up to read a good book (or write one!)

Horseback riding is not far away, and there are several golf courses in the area.

30 minutes to Woodstock, perhaps for a delicious meal at the Woodstock Inn or dinner at Simon Pearce just a few miles farther on the road. The Children's Science Museum is less than an hour north, between Norwich and Hanover. Other villages to visit: Chester, Weston, Grafton, to name a few.

Walk down the side road to the 20-mile stream and the flat rocks or a favorite swimming hole. Take your drinks and picnic to the dock at the small pond on the property and just enjoy the day.

It's also a relaxing place to stay while helping your son or daughter consider colleges in the area!

Whatever your desire for a getaway in New England, The Cottage at Stone Walls will welcome you.

Golf: I am not a golfer, but know there are golf courses in the area (Woodstock, Weathersfield, Ludlow/Tyson). I'd be happy to help you if this is what you are interested in doing during your visit.

Ski: Okemo Ski area is about 10-15 minutes from here.. Also within an hour are Killington, Bromley, Stratton, and Magic Mountain Ski areas. We are approximately 2 hours from Stowe.
