Why Jim Tepper chose Ludlow / Okemo Mountain Area

Comfoprtable farmhouse homestead enjoyed for many years by guests. Relaxing environment with the "Million Dollar View" of the lake from the rockers on the porch...enjoy morning coffee and take in the breathtaking view.

As Described...Very Pleasent to Deal With

  • 5 of 5

Stayed over New Years Eve weekend with a group of 10 people (ages 24-25) and had a very nice time. The house doesn't come with anything special so be prepared to entertain yourself, but overall the house is very cozy and convenient. Nice living room area with plenty of seating and a nice fireplace. The kitchen is plenty big and the dining room was also spacious enough for our entire party. Very nice proximity to Okemo, about 7 minute drive, but I would recommend having an AWD vehicle. Overall it was a great experience and I would recommend this house if you're not expecting anything crazy.

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We have spent a week here almost every summer for more than 20 years. It is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy VT. The house and beach are comfortable for a family (kids, grandkids etc..) or group of friends. The beach front is protected and private, with nice sand for kids but also perfect for kayaks and adults to hang out, swim, read and relax. Swimming is perfect and the raft provides a source for lots of fun. Ludlow is very nearby with a great bakery, Okemo and Killington for hiking or summer drives and local inns just down the street if you want to go out for dinner. The house, porch, yard and beach provide enough room so that people can spend time alone or time together.

Fantastic place with a one in a million view!

  • 5 of 5

Had the pleasure of spending the week of July 25th up at Echo Lake in the Tepper home and had a great time. You can't beat the mornings waking up with coffee on the farmer's porch looking out over the lake, priceless! The beach area is very clean and there are loads of beach chairs to relax in while you take a break from the lake. The owners are very accomodating and really encourage you to enjoy the lake.

I highly recommend this property.
