Overview

Ludlow / Okemo Mountain Area Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Vermont Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

A cozy Vermont mountain cottage one mile to picturesque Belmont Village and Star Lake, and 6 miles to Okemo Ski Resort and Ludlow. A private location with a deck overlooking Star Lake, meadows and mountain vistas (with a 75 mile view!).

Sleeps 2 to 6...... 2 for a romantic get-away, or up to 6 for family and friends:

2 bedrooms [Queen; Double; and Queen Sleep Sofa in living room], 2 baths, living room with woodstove, FREE long distance calls within US and Canada, High Speed Internet, cableTV with DVR, DVD player; dining area; fully equipped kitchen including dishwasher, microwave; laundry with washer/dryer. A beautiful mountain get-away, yet close to skiing and other activities.

We are in the heart of the Green Mountains between Killington and Stratton/Bromley. We have beautiful (spectacular!!) views off to the west and northwest (great sunsets). Our cottage sits on a hill surrounded by stately maples and open pastures. It sits at 2100 feet above sea level and overlooks a lake with a 75 mile view across the mountains of Vermont and into New York State (we see the highest mountain in NY). We are one mile from Star Lake which has a beach and boat access. The cottage is surrounded by 180 acres of our land, and hundreds more acres of friends, family and the State of Vermont. We have our own trail network for hiking, snowshoeing and xc skiing, and there's lots of other hiking all around the town and local area. On our land across the road from the cottage there are four beaver ponds that string along a brook that runs into Star Lake.

Although private, our cottage is in the heart of the Vermont ski and tourist area so there are lots of restaurants, shops, and activities within 5 to 10 miles

Winter:

Okemo 6 miles; 5 other major ski areas are 30-40 minutes away (Killington, Pico, Bromley, Stratton, Magic); snowshoe, cross-country ski and sled from house; village skating; 1/2 mile to VAST snowmobile trail system.

Summer & Fall: Peaceful hide-away; nearby mountain lakes - swim, fish, boat rentals. Central to sightseeing, golf, tennis, horseback riding, hiking, biking; near historic Weston Playhouse and Weston Priory. Surrounded by Vermont forests and autumn foliage.

NO SMOKING

DOGS allowed with permission; please inquire when booking.

(sorry, NO CATS)

About Ron Unterman

My wife and I are retired and live full time in Belmont, just down the road from our rental cottage.

Come visit us in our little corner of paradise :)

Why Ron Unterman chose Ludlow / Okemo Mountain Area

Ron's family began coming to Belmont for summers in 1956 and his parents moved here full-time from New York City in 1970. As a teenager Ron worked on a local farm and the family came up to Belmont for every vacation, all year 'round. Ron and Dottie moved here full-time in 2001 and enjoy all of Vermont's seasons -- You will too :)

What makes this cottage unique

We are in the heart of the Green Mountains between Killington and Stratton/Bromley, and minutes to Okemo. We have beautiful (spectacular!!) views off to the west and northwest (great sunsets). Our cottage sits on a hill surrounded by stately maples and open pastures. It sits at 2100 feet above sea level and overlooks a lake with a 75 mile view across the mountains of Vermont and into New York State (we see the highest mountain in NY). We are one mile from Star Lake which has a beach and boat access. The cottage is very private being surrounded by 180 acres of our land, and hundreds more acres of friends, family and the State of Vermont. We have our own trail network for hiking, snowshoeing and xc skiing, and there's lots of other hiking all around the town and local area. On our land across the road from the cottage there are four beaver ponds that string along a brook that runs into Star Lake.

..... and we have a moose that visits every now and then [EMAIL us for this picture and many others].

Although private, this house is in the heart of the Vermont ski and tourist area so there are lots of restaurants, shops, and activities within 5 to 10 miles (Mt. Holly, Ludlow, Weston, etc.)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Ron and Dottie--

Thanks very much for letting us enjoy your very comfortable cottage. The photos we'd seen both in the brochure and on the internet didn't do justice to either the clean and modern facilities, nor the marvelous views. We look forward to returning some day. Many thanks again, especially for the warm and thoughtful welcoming touches.

Cottage Ski Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Ron and Dotties cottage last weekend with 3 friends. It made for the perfect home base for skiing at Okemo. The wood stove really helped with the cozy vibes, and the stars were pretty incredible. Definitely hope to return soon!

Great Vermont getaway with amazing views and sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our week at Ron & Dottie's cottage. The views are amazing and we had

some really great sunsets. Cottage is comfortable and accomodating. Kitchen provided

everything needed to cook some nice dinners. My husband grilled some delicious steaks

on the charcoal grill. Haven't used a charcoal grill in years. Our 2 grown sons and their godfather

joined us for a few days. Cottage was large enough to be comfortable with all of us and

our black lab as well. Loved being able to have Mack vacation with us, thanks for being pet

friendly.Enjoyed visiting the Belmont General store just down the road. Kevin, the owner, makes some

really great burgers, they're huge! We also enjoyed meeting Ron and Dottie who are super friendly

and very accomodating. Looking forward to returning next year!

A True Get-Gway

  • 5 of 5

The first positive experience was how helpful accommodating the owners were. I was meeting friends and were having troubles with the dates - They solved the problem -I always appreciate pet friendly places. The cabin was warm, roomy and very inviting. The area around the cabin was very nice -with several trails and wonderful vistas -I will be back

Thanks for making a great place to stay, greater

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four truly enjoyed our stay in the cottage. The cottage was well-appointed with everything you could need and was highly organized. The grounds are lovely and the nightly sunset views are a real treat. The surrounding areas offered lots to do with kids, all in a very serene setting. We hope to come back soon!
