About Amy Nichols

Lifelong CT folks that have always loved VT.

Amy Nichols purchased this house in 2012

Why Amy Nichols chose Ludlow

We have another home in Ludlow and a property in Mt. Holly but this home has always been one of our favorites. When it went up for foreclosure after our friend Rob passed, we just had to try for it. We think we have done a great job with the renovation....Rob would be proud.

What makes this house unique

This home is on the river in the center of town. The amazing views and the new hot tub location make this home absolutely unique!

Just what our group of 15 needed!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Thanksgiving Blast at the River House!

  • 5 of 5

Our family took our annual Thanksgiving celebration to the River House and we had a blast. Leave your cars in the parking lot, walk to town, stumble back or pick up some supplies. The house was clean, comfortable and warm with plenty to do. We had a crowd of twenty put never felt crowded. You can spread out on different floors. Kitchen was well stocked, The Hot Tub was well, Hot, and the Bar/Shuffle Board/Video Game area were a huge hit! Finally, The Nichols could not have been more accommodating! Thanks for the awesome memories!

Fun and spacious home

  • 4 of 5

We had 4 families (8 adults, 8 kids) and the house totally suited us. The spacious layout didn't make us feel crammed. Kids played in the loft (their "clubhouse") or in saloon. Adults hung out by big dining table, saloon, and hot tub.Lots of bonus amenities! Only quick 5 minute drive to okemo base, supermarket, or local restaurant. Amy was always quick to respond and pleasure/easy to work with. Would definitely consider renting here again!

Unexpected gem

  • 5 of 5

I was reluctant to write this review because I wanted to keep this place a secret! River House was the most wonderful accommodation for us (7 adults, 9 children).It's comfortable, clean, and spacious with a magnificent layout and location. The write up here is accurate with many unmentioned added "perks". The owners have a very personal interest in it. If I could have, I would not reveal the dates we stayed so that no one else can grab them!!

Excellent Property, Location & Owner!

  • 5 of 5

The River House has been magnificently restored. We had rented the River House about 7 years ago and we couldn't believe the transformation. The house always had a great location and bones but Amy has done a fantastic job turning it into a premier rental. We loved our stay here for a golf weekend. The bedrooms were super comfortable and the second floor pub/saloon with shuffle board and hot tub made for a great place to relax at night. Also the convenience of walking to the Village for coffee and breakfast in the morning and the restaurant and bars in the evening was an extra bonus. We are looking forward to returning for ski season!

Awesome, Totally Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay. A comfortable, clean, accommodating house for a large group of friends getting together for a ski trip reunion.

The sonos system throughout the house is great, connecting and running the music for multiple levels is perfect for a group. Someone can control the music in the kitchen while someone else controls the music in the bar area.

Big buck hunter...enough said!!

The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare large family style meals, something that i personally value when I'm away.

Overall a great house on the river which looked really awesome with the extra foot of snow we received the night before our arrival! Our group will be back again!

Ludlow, VT is a simple town with simple pleasures. There is a great deal of wonderful dining and shopping, walking and hiking.....and of course you are just minutes away from Okemo Mtn and all it has to offer. The newer Jackson Gore area boasts a spring house with an indoor pool, hot tub, gym, racquet ball, etc. The ice rink opens seasonally but the on mountain coaster is open year round. There are other great reasons to check out the Jackson Gore base lodge....just ask us for suggestions.
