Winter at Bear Down' is a great destination for family and friends to reunite and create new lasting memories.” Bear Down” is decorated in the best of furnishings, tucked away in the classic Vermont setting. Enhanced with large windows in every room allows winters beauty to enter into the indoors. Non skiers will enjoy the day with a hike/walk around the neighborhood and cuddled up with a book by the fireplace enjoying the beauty of pure Vermont at it's best. “Bear Down” was designed with the skier in mind as the entry/mud room has individual cubbies for your boots, helmets and gloves. Adjacent next the mud room is the washer dryer so that the wet stuff after playing in the snow can go right in! The house is equipped with a real wood fireplace that is gas lit, making getting started a breeze. The living quarters have been designed for entertaining. The chef of the group will never feel alone while preparing the meal as everyone is part of the environment which leads to many pitching in. Many hands make for light work as they say! Dinners at “bear down” always feel like a holiday, creating memories. The kids in the group will all gather upstairs in the TV/video room and bond together giving the adults time on their own. The bedding at “Bear down” is of top quality. This insures a good night sleep when it’s your time to turn in. Skiing is conveniently located, with Okemo’s Jackson Gore only 5 miles south, and Killington’s Sky ship gondola 13 miles north.
Sleigh riding on our quiet street after a snow fall on a flexible flier sure bring back memories to many of us! I recommend it! Car pooling the sledder’s back to the top on a cold, cold night has been fun for us on many a star lit night.
We enjoy working with our guest and take pride in ensuring a perfect stay at “Bear down”
WE look forward to hearing from you!

WE rented in Vermont for 25 years before building. We new what we needed and how best to design it after all of those years in different ski homes.
'bear down' came out perfect in every aspect!

We had a wonderful stay at Bear Down. The location was ideal for the wedding event at Camp Plymouth. The place is bigger than it appears on the VRBO web site and it was great to have a large living space for family from both sides to mingle between events and for the bride to dress with her Mom and girl friends.
The owner, Randy, was very accommodating for a special request that we had and was very response via text on a minor question on getting the WiFi reset. He keeps the house well supplied with essentials - spices, condiments - with a simple policy "please help your self. If you finish something replace it."
We stayed at Bear down for a week in mid Aug. We had two families, 4 adults and 3 children, and had more room that imagined!!
House was perfect. Clean, bright, and just wonderful in all ways!!
Large TV in main living room with surround sound and a very beautiful fireplace that was a breeze to light. Bedrooms were large with very comfortable linen. Bathrooms had great showers- my son even took his very FIRST shower all by himself here!!
We had a GREAT week at Bear Down and plan on staying again next year!
Thank you Randy for sharing your home with us.
Beautiful home, fantastic view! Loved the open concept kitchen/dining room/living room. Made it easy for the family to spend time together during meals/meal prep, and the kitchen was well-stocked. Plenty of privacy/spacious yard, and we enjoyed the fire pit every night. Very comfortable beds. This was my first trip to the Ludlow area, and I will definitely go back. Many lakes and swimming holes to explore, and plenty of hiking. Thanks for a great week!
Randy and Lori really knew what they were doing when building this house. Top notch finishes; great layout for multiple families; and all the conveniences that you could want. Kids had a blast skiing/riding at nearby Okemo and Killington, and even sledding outside the house. We always, always enjoy our time here.
Randy & Lori,
What a beautiful home - thank you for sharing! The attention to detail can be found throughout the house - from the large, "skier's" mudroom to the relaxing family room with the gas/wood fireplace (so easy to start a real wood fire). The upstairs, with bedrooms and an open tv/play area, was a perfect getaway for the kids! The home made is it so easy to relax - just what we needed.
We hope to make it an annual getaway!
Hi Randy and Lori, we had another great time in your place. It was a good thing we had that extra day due to the storm. Good food and drink, good skiing, and most importantly, laughing and relaxing with all our family there was really special and we thank you for that.
