The location is ideal for summer or winter. (Okemo 2 miles away Buttermilk Falls, golf etc 3 miles)
The quintessentially Vermont town of Ludlow (about 4 miles) offers great local shops, a fully-stocked supermarket, drugstore, hardware store, bike shop, wine shops and fantastic restaurants.
The beautiful and historic town of Woodstock is a short 25 mile drive, and you can stop at the brewery and get a sampler of the different word famous Long Trail ales and maybe enjoy lunch or dinner there right next to at a murmuring brook. The renowned Weston Playhouse Theater is even closer at just 10 miles. Weston is worth a visit by itself.
Winter - It's virtually impossible to beat this home and this location for great winter activity and relaxation. From the winter wonderland that the lake and surrounding area becomes, to some of the most amazing skiing in all of Vermont, you'll find it all close by. Okemo's newest lodge, Jackson Gore, is just 2 miles away and connects with other Okemo lodges via a network of 121 trails & glades, 667 acres of terrain and a vertical drop of 2,200 feet ... the most in southern Vermont. Okemo is reliable to always have fantastic grooming and is known for “the best in family fun”. If you are an extreme skier and need a challenge go to Killington.
