Overview

Ludlow / Okemo Mountain Area Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Welcome to Belmont Treetops - your perfect getaway in the lush beauty of the Green Mountains. Although we are located in a classic quaint Vermont village, we are only minutes away from all the activities that make Vermont wonderful, especially in the winter months - skiing, skating, and snowshoeing. And, of course in summer and fall: Swimming, kayaking, canoeing, hiking, biking, summer concerts, great theater, and restaurants.

This new large studio loft is ideal for a romantic getaway, summer holiday, fall foliage tour or ski vacation. The loft has open space, high ceilings, glass, and is furnished with antiques and cozy furniture. The best part - you feel like you are living in a treehouse as you look out over the treetops to the mountains. We're family friendly but we've also been told that Belmont Treetops is a wonderfully romantic place to stay. Writers and those seeking quiet away from their busy lives have found this to be a place they love coming back to year after year.

The partitioned sleeping area has a queen bed and is surrounded by partial walls and etched glass for privacy. A pullout couch has a full bed. There is a fully-equipped kitchen including dishwasher and microwave and stocked with all the pots, pans, and cooking utensils you will need. All linens are provided. There is also Wifi and a bluetooth speaker in the studio. And our guests always enjoy the homemade treats and cheese and crackers we leave for them upon their arrival!

SPRING/SUMMER/FALL: We are located in the heart of the Green Mountains on nine acres of wooded land and open fields. Views of the mountains are outside your window. Beautiful walks right outside your door and more challenging hikes and miles of trails are nearby. Easy access to beautiful dirt lanes for biking and hiking. Swimming, kayaking, fishing, golf, tennis are less than 15 minutes away. For those seeking cultural activities, the acclaimed Weston Playhouse (Christopher Lloyd played was in DEATH OF A SALESMAN in the summer of 2010) is only ten minutes away and a concert can be found almost every day of the week.

You are an easy 1.5 mile scenic walk on a tree-lined country dirt road to the charming Belmont Village, store, and Star Lake. You can start your day with a walk to the store and pick up your morning coffee and newspaper - even in the winter it is an invigorating walk! There is also an old-fashioned library, with a wide selection of books, and a local museum in town.

If you don't want to eat at home using the fully equipped kitchen, there are restaurants as close as ten minutes away. Also nearby is the famous Vermont Country Store in Weston where you will discover hard-to-find items and an impossible to resist selection of candies, cheeses, jams, and other delicious food items.

WINTER: We are near many ski areas: Okemo, near Ludlow, less than 15 minutes; Bromley, 30 minutes, Killington 40 minutes. You can also enjoy skating on beautiful Star Lake 2 miles away. More than 25 acres of snowshoe and cross-country trails or sledding, outside your front door!

******In winter, four wheel or all wheel drive (AWD) only. If you have rear wheel drive you will not make it up our driveway******** If you do not have AWD or 4wd, you accept responsibility for towing or damage to your car if you cannot make it up the driveway.

SPECIAL AMENITIES: In addition to all your linens (sheets and towels), we provide many of your essentials including paper towels, napkins, toilet paper, soap, shampoo and conditioner, hair dryer, foil, plastic wrap, garbage bags, sugar, flour, a variety of spices, etc. We also have puzzles, games, and lots of books and magazines in the loft.

LOCAL INFORMATION: We have extensive information and brochures on local attractions, restaurants, places to shop, and local skiing, hiking, swimming, biking information.

THREE DAY MINIMUM for all holiday weekends, vacation weeks and from Memorial Day through Labor Day weekend.

We look forward to welcoming you to Vermont!

Why The Owner chose Ludlow / Okemo Mountain Area

We had a second home in Belmont (Mount Holly), Vermont for more than 30 years. We lived in San Francisco for 15 years but spent all of our winter and summer vacations here. When we moved back to the East Coast, we decided to make Vermont our home because of the beauty, wide variety of activities in the area, and because Mount Holly is a wonderful, friendly, and welcoming community.

What makes this studio unique

The endless variety of activities in the area always keep us busy. In the summer, the three mile round-trip walk to the local country store is how we start every day. The summer is loaded with things to do: there is our own local music series in the center of town, great local theater and concerts, and for the sports enthusiast, there are not enough hours in the day for all the activities. In the fall, Belmont has its own Columbus Day celebration with a real apple press, a photo contest, and many vendors selling local products. In the winter, Mount Holly is known as the snow belt - we almost always have beautiful snow even when others do not. There isn't a time of year that isn't perfect - even mud season because you can smell the earth begin to thaw, see flowers begin to peak out above the last remnants of snow, and watch the trees begin to bud. It is a magical time.

Great Location , Beautiful Loft and Great Host

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this beautiful Loft the last weekend of February 2016. It is only 15 minutes to Okemo Mountain and very easy ride. The Loft is absolutely gorgeous, very neat, elegant, with lots of windows and natural light. Janet was very helpful during our stay. She gave us a lot of tips and recommendation about Okemo area (restaurants, music events, shopping). We are definitely coming back next year. Thank you so much for opening your beautiful house to us. Ania and Mike (New Jersey)

Beautiful Space, Wonderful Hosts

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Belmont Treetops for a quick ski trip. It is a beautiful apartment, spotlessly clean and very attractively furnished, with many antiques.The pictures are very representative. Janet and Paul were wonderful hosts, very friendly and welcoming. Yes, there were cheese, crackers, and brownies waiting for us when we arrived. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils and plenty of information on local activities and restaurants is provided in the apartment. After my ski boots fell apart on the first day, Janet quickly surveyed some local skiers for recommendations for a good ski shop, and I was able to be fit for new boots and back on the slopes the next morning. We had a great stay, and I'm sure we will return. Definitely 5 stars!

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I recently stayed at Belmont Tree Tops and I could not have asked for a better place to stay. Janet and Paul are the nicest people. We arrived late on Friday night and were welcomed with a brownie and cheese platter. Janet had left notes all around the apartment that made us feel right at home and answered any questions we had about the place. The loft was gorgeous and so clean! There was plenty of space. I had a queen size air mattress that I had brought up and we had more than enough room. During the day we went skiing at Okemo, which was only a 15 minute drive away. In the evening Janet and Paul let us use their snowshoes to explore the trails behind their house. This place is truly magical. I cannot wait to visit again!

Great place to relax after skiing!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed at the Belmont Tree Tops two years in a row and absolutely love it!! The owners are amazing and make you feel at home. We ski at Okemo, which is a short drive from the loft. We are a family of 3, so the space works great for us. We love having the kitchen so we can make breakfast and dinner at home. It is such a wonderful place to come back to after a long day of skiing. A great place to go to relax and get away from it all! We cannot wait to return this year!

Relaxing Getaway with Mountain Views

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at Belmont Treetops. Owner Janet greeted us with homemade brownies and helpful information about nearby state parks and things to do in the area. The rental was clean, comfortable and nicely furnished, outfitted with all that we needed. We slept with the windows open at night, listening to the wind in the trees and relaxed in the Adirondack chairs with views of the mountains during the day. For those who enjoy photography, there are many interesting local sights including an old cemetery down the road. Thanks, Janet and Paul for a great time. We hope to return someday.

A Peaceful, Beautiful Escape!

  • 5 of 5

I was up in Vermont for a wedding and Belmont Treetops was the most wonderful place to call my own during the weekend. Impeccably clean, quiet, peaceful, beautifully appointed and incredibly comfortable. I'm a solo traveler but I imagine this would be terrific for families as well. Plenty of space to spread out. Can't recommend highly enough!
