Let me start off by saying I'm a pretty large guy, vertically speaking. My friends who accompanied me on this trip share similar anatomical advantages. We eat a lot, we sleep like giants, we sweat near fire, and we love garlic. The ceilings in this house were very accommodating for the most part, as were the door frames. The biggest and perhaps most ingrained impression this house had on me were the many doors and cabinets. So many, in fact, that we were convinced the "Little Man of Ludlow" resided somewhere behind the abundant wooden portals. Call him what you want, but the mystical Vermont pixie pulls some strings! One night we were having a jovial time amongst alcoholic breath, when I felt compelled to enter the kitchen. Upon my return, a roll of shrink wrap appeared in the center of the table. Because of my apparent mobility, I was blamed and questioned for it. To this day, I know nothing surrounding the roll of shrink wrap. Little Man...
The bedrooms were far and plenty. I may be biased because I had the privilege of stretching my limbs on the master bed, or, the shag lair minus shag. However, we easily slept 9 adults throughout the house and for those that don't normally end up in a bed after a fun night of "Kings", fear not! Simply locate the closet in the master bedroom, and you'll find two twin stacked cots. Gives the feeling of being lower deck on a whaleboat with Jacques Cousteau, nice!
The fire place was undoubtedly the focal point of our homely evenings. This is not your Aunt Lucy's fireplace. This roaring heath will (and has :/) turn seemingly masculine men into feminine laughing stock. Very tough to ignite the logs to the left of the fireplace, and may take embarrassingly long hours to get a 10 second dancing flame. READ: Use dry, cold logs located outside the sliding door entrance near Foosball table. These will create a magic so grand, your cheeks will look like your other cheeks after trying snowboarding for the first time.
Another time-consuming room here is that which houses the jacuzzi. That tub can crank! And boy does it feel good on your ever-tiring muscles. Be sure to hydrate if you want to migrate, as the room gets so steamy that one of our people completely forget he spent a whole 3 hours pruning in the sweat laden stew! Be sure to add chlorine!
The house is a 5 minute drive from Ludlow/Okemo. We thought it acceptable one day to attempt walking, yet soon realized we had much maturing to do as adults.
