About Amy Nichols

Lifelong CT folks that have always loved VT.

Amy Nichols purchased this house in 2012

Why Amy Nichols chose Ludlow / Okemo Mountain Area

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.

What makes this house unique

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!

River House was awesome

  • 5 of 5

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!

vendice family

  • 5 of 5

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.

Just what our group of 15 needed!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Thanksgiving Blast at the River House!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Fun and spacious home

  • 4 of 5

We had 4 families (8 adults, 8 kids) and the house totally suited us. The spacious layout didn't make us feel crammed. Kids played in the loft (their "clubhouse") or in saloon. Adults hung out by big dining table, saloon, and hot tub.Lots of bonus amenities! Only quick 5 minute drive to okemo base, supermarket, or local restaurant. Amy was always quick to respond and pleasure/easy to work with. Would definitely consider renting here again!

Unexpected gem

  • 5 of 5

I was reluctant to write this review because I wanted to keep this place a secret! River House was the most wonderful accommodation for us (7 adults, 9 children).It's comfortable, clean, and spacious with a magnificent layout and location. The write up here is accurate with many unmentioned added "perks". The owners have a very personal interest in it. If I could have, I would not reveal the dates we stayed so that no one else can grab them!!

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.
