Overview

Ludlow / Okemo Mountain Area House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

The Grant home rests on a hill overlooking Lake Echo and is not like your every day rental property, it is a home away from home. We have had many satisfied guests over the years. It is tastefully decorated, with many of our personnel items, and is warm and friendly. Its location, while situated in the middle of all the action, it is also a quiet and private house.

In summer it provides a deck on the lake, dock, fishing, swimming and boating. A row boat and canoe are available for your use. A glass sliding door from the house leads to a patio/deck that overlooks the lake, A Gazebo and awning shelters one from the sun if you are inclined that way and there is a second deck just below and a deck on the lake, with a dock in the summer. Sufficient outdoor furniture is provided for sitting and dining out.

And, nearby is an outstanding world class golf course at Okemo Golf Club, open to the public.

In the fall, you have the advantage of watching the leaves turn in all their glory from your own private deck. Perhaps bundled up and having an afternoon glass of wine or cocktail or hot chocolate as you watch the sun set.

In the winter, you can enjoy ice fishing; ice skating, skiing, snowmobiling and other winter activities are on the lake or nearby. And, don't forget the XL Whirlpool tub after a day on the slopes. A convenience store is within walking distance. The town of Ludlow is 5 miles away and boasts many fine restaurants.

Family friendly Okemo Mountain and Jackson Gore Base are a short ride away. Killington Gondola and Pico are about 12 miles north. The house has a mud room with convenient ski racks allows you to leave your skis here for your next visit.

Why The Owner chose Ludlow / Okemo Mountain Area

We were with our daughter, who rented a house in the area, and we discovered and fell in love with this house. It's been 15 years now and we still enjoy it as well as our daughters and grandchildren.

What makes this house unique

Rest relaxation and then the availability of all the winter activities. We enjoy sharing it with our family on the skiing trips.

A complete vacation home!!!!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for the July 4th long weekend. We had 2 couples and children. So much room. The house is so welcoming and warm. It had all necessities you will need. It was very clean the sheets even smelled freshly washed. So much to do in the area. Waterfalls, okimo mountain, state park, not to mention the lake right at your back door. We would definitely rent this home again. The owner is pleasant and accommodating to work with. The only reason I gave 4 star instead of 5 was there is a lot of stairs to water so tough for lil kids and elder. But great if you have a step counter.

My family and I had an amazing time in this home for New Years, beautiful views of the lake and just minutes from Ludlow and Mt. Okemo, my 3 children were so excited to stay in what they called their "tree cottage on the water"!!! Thanks!

Wished we could have stayed longer

Wonderful view, peaceful clean lake, comfortable house - everything as described. If only we had more time there (3 days was not enough!) because there's lots to see and do in the area BUT it's so nice by the lake too!

Wonderful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific week of vacation at this charming property! Our daughters, ages 8 and 11 did not want to leave. We fished off the dock, and from the owners' rowboat which was great fun for the kids. Swimming off the dock was nice and refreshing and we floated around well into the evenings to enjoy sunset.

There are a number of stairs from the house to the dock, but we got our two tandem kayaks down just fine. We boated them across the lake to take them out at the boat launch, which worked out well. The neighbors' tenants let our kids use the floating trampoline which was tons of fun for the kids and they made some new friends.

We spent a great day in historic Plymouth where Calvin Coolidge lived and was sworn into office. We kayaked a lot at this house and at Kent Pond and at a reservoir near Quechee. The Gorge was beautiful. The VINS Center is a must see for bird enthusiasts.

We saw lots of songbirds at this home too!

The house is just as you see in the photos. Very cute and homey. There is good wifi if you need to be connected. The owners were very helpful and nice to work with. I think they went above and beyond for us. We had a fantastic experience here and recommend it highly.
