Whether you've previously seen this amazing property or it's your first time, you will be equally amazed. We have installed a brand new kitchen, completely overhauled the pub and added french doors out to the new hot tub deck. Add to that beautifully renovated bedrooms and updated electronics including a smart TV, blue ray & DVD, WIFI and a wireless Sonos speakers in both common areas as well as on the hot tub deck. Please read on for more information.
Lifelong CT folks that have always loved VT.
Amy Nichols purchased this house in 2012
We have another home in Ludlow and a property in Mt. Holly but this home has always been one of our favorites. When it went up for foreclosure after our friend Rob passed, we just had to try for it. We think we have done a great job with the renovation....Rob would be proud.
This home is on the river in the center of town. The amazing views and the new hot tub location make this home absolutely unique!

The River House was just perfect for our large group's annual ski trip!! The location was fantastic - the house is literally a hop, skip and a jump away from the Clocktower Base of Okemo mountain (3 minute car ride)! And because the house is right in town, getting to restaurants, bars, or convenience stores was a piece of cake. There is also Totem Pole Ski Shop right down the road , so you can rent skis for cheaper than you would pay on the mountain.
As far as the house itself, the common areas had a ton of space and seating available for everyone, which was a huge plus for the older members of our group. There are two TV's in the saloon, so you can watch two shows/sports events at once, all while playing shuffleboard or arcade games!! The house's SONOS system is fantastic and a breeze to work - and I loved that there was a speaker by the outdoor hot tub too!!
The bedrooms, kitchen, bathrooms, and hot tub are all updated and were clean and tidy upon our arrival. The layout of the bedrooms and bathrooms ensures that everyone has access to a full bath on their level - another huge plus for the older members of our group. The loft was a great place for the kids to hang out and sleep.
Lastly, Amy (the owner) was fantastic to work with. She was really helpful in making recommendations about restaurants and what to bring with us for our trip. Every step of the process was made easier by having Amy as my guide. If we come back to Okemo to ski again, we will definitely be staying in the River House (or one of Amy's other rentals) again!
The River House was the perfect location for our long Memorial Day weekend away! The home is everything Amy says it is in her overview! Four families fit very comfortably in the home and the proximity to downtown was wonderful for the teenage kids to roam around town. Even in the "off season" the towns restaurants and shops were open and we enjoyed a nice hometown Memorial Day parade, just steps away from our front door!! Just a mile away we enjoyed Okemo's summer recreation activities, Buttermilk Falls and hiking in Okemo State Forest. Amy was super informative and checked in to make sure everything was just as we expected. The families are already planning a return trip to this home!!
Round two at the River House for Thanksgiving was as good as the first! Once again arrived to a clean, well equipped house, moved right in and felt right at home. The location is awesome to be able to stumble back and forth from town. There's plenty of space and this year the upgraded sixty game Video machine was a big hit with all ages. Kitchen is very well equipped and everything worked according to plan! We would go back in a heart beat - thanks for helping us feel at Home for our Thanksgiving gathering!
We enjoyed a wonderful stay at the river house over the Easter holiday with three generations. The house was ideal for a larger family with kids, grandparents parents and dogs :-) There were accommodations for everyone, and a great central gathering room on the third floor with kitchen, fireplace and TV& long kitchen table to fit everybody - lots of seating. A game room downstairs for the kids and hot tub outside was very well received. Location was perfect right outside of 'downtown' & a walk to church, dinner and any other shopping, and a five minute ride to Okemo. Recommend this house to anyone and we will definitely be back again. Owners were incredibly helpful and thoughtful.
River House was exactly what our group of 15 needed. The location in town and proximity to Okemo cannot be beat. We were a diverse group of singles, couples, a toddler and a small dog. River House accommodated us perfectly. The lower level flop room fit all our singles with room to spare...and two people even chose to sleep on the full mattresses in the loft.
The kitchen was perfect for family style dinners and the saloon level was great for game night. I was initially discouraged when I forgot to pack board games, especially Taboo. But, to my surprise, River House had Taboo and several puzzles.
The hot tub was ready to go when we arrived and it was much needed in the sub-zero temperatures!
Ultimately, what made our vacation even better was how seamless and easy it was to work with Amy from the time we booked. She was responsive to all of my inquiries leading up to the trip, guaranteed a pack n' play and high chair and even called the day of check-in to make sure we arrived and had no issues getting in. During our stay, a fuse went out on the saloon level and we had difficulty getting the front bedroom up to a comfortable temperature. But, there was a binder in the house with all contact numbers and we were able to get in touch with Chris immediately who directed us to the fuse box. After about 24 hours, the front bedroom did climb up to about 68 degrees, but it started to cool down again toward the end of our stay. This may be because of its proximity to the front door.
Ultimately, River House was exactly what we needed and we will be contacting Amy again for our next trip to Ludlow.
Thank you for a great vacation!
Our family took our annual Thanksgiving celebration to the River House and we had a blast. Leave your cars in the parking lot, walk to town, stumble back or pick up some supplies. The house was clean, comfortable and warm with plenty to do. We had a crowd of twenty put never felt crowded. You can spread out on different floors. Kitchen was well stocked, The Hot Tub was well, Hot, and the Bar/Shuffle Board/Video Game area were a huge hit! Finally, The Nichols could not have been more accommodating! Thanks for the awesome memories!

Ludlow, VT is a simple town with simple pleasures. There is a great deal of wonderful dining and shopping, walking and hiking.....and of course you are just minutes away from Okemo Mtn and all it has to offer. The newer Jackson Gore area boasts a spring house with an indoor pool, hot tub, gym, racquet ball, etc. The ice rink opens seasonally but the on mountain coaster is open year round. There are other great reasons to check out the Jackson Gore base lodge....just ask us for suggestions.
