We are a skiing family, living in NJ. Some of our favorite vacations have been family ski trips. It was only after buying this house that we found how much Vermont has to offer in the summer.
Cndy Stoneking purchased this house in 2000
We never considered any other place in VT. We have been skiing here since the 1970's. It was only after buying our home we discovered that it is truly a four season place to go. Something is always going on within an easy drive. Having a town like Ludow right at the bottom of the mountain is a definite plus.
We are on a 2 1/2 acre wooded lot on a peaceful cul-de-sac. Located on the mountain, it is an easy drop into town if you need to. At the end of the ski day you can avoid all town traffic because of our on mountain location.
This was a wonderful family get together to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. Family came from CT, MA, ME and VA to make this celebration wonderful. This home offered so much, from comfortable sleeping accommodations, to an excellent, well stocked kitchen. We enjoyed wonderful evenings playing hours on the Foosball table and the bumper pool. The fire pit was amazing! Brought back wonderful memories of when we camped at Camp Plymouth State Park. We were centrally located to everything; Okemo Mtn, Calvin Coolidge Homestead, Quechee Gorge Village, Long Trail brewery, MacLaomainn's Scottish Pub, Adirondack trail. We would definitely come back again. Thank you!
Our experience with this rental was terrific - it was a last minute-rescue after another arrangement had fallen through. The homeowner was helpful, attentive, and quickly responsive. She gladly accommodated our payment requests, even offering options we had not considered because of the last-minute nature of our reservation. She was flexible in terms of both arrival and departure times, and made our travel arrangements much easier because of it.
The home is clean, spacious, and as shown in the pictures. It's not formal or fancy but surprisingly comfortable. We were able to entertain, having a large group for dinner, all enjoying the games, the foosball, the bumper pool, the deck, and the fire pit for s'mores at the end of the evening.
The house was well stocked with cookware (particularly using the upstairs kitchen as our "cooking central," bedding, and towels. None were fancy, but all were functional. There were more beds and spots for people to sleep than we had people even with extended family - ALL the beds were comfortable and everyone slept soundly.
We would surely go back if we find ourselves in this area again. We were there late summer/early fall just before the leaves turned and wished we were there to see how spectacular it would be just a few weeks later. We don't ski anymore, but if we did, this is a terrific location.
Our goal this trip was visiting family (plenty of room for LOTS of family) where we could eat in (farm stands and a decent grocery store are just down the hill), and we wanted a place the "kids" (20s) could bring their friends after work. They came, they stayed, and visited some more. It was just right.
We didn't see any moose but did see foxes, turkeys, beaver, geese, and loved the crickets.
We used this property as "home base" for a family reunion, our party consisted of 14 adults and 2 dogs. The house was exactly as described, very private and clean, great outdoor space. My husband and I have been renting houses for 10 years and this was the best stocked house we've stayed at - paper towels, spices, toilet paper were all there. Our family especially enjoyed the bumper pool table - they stayed up late into the night playing. The owners were very responsive to all questions and a pleasure to work with.
So much to do this summer, so little time! In Weston (15 mins) enjoy the Vermont Country Store & Weston Playhouse. Outlet shopping in Manchester (30 mins). Okemo Golf course, just 5 mins. down the hill. An afternoon at the spa, weekly outdoor concerts and Timber Ripper rollercoaster at Jackson Gore (5 mins). Hiking trails all over the mountain. Buttermilk Falls for swimming (5 mins). Rent a canoe or kayak at Lake Rescue (10 mins) or enjoy a picnic on it's beach. Bromley Mountain has it's Thrill Zone or take the gondola up at Killington (30 mins) and mountain bike down. Festivals galore all summer & fall!
