“Perfect place for our reunion!”

Reviewed 19 Jul 2015

Great website and planning tools for visit. Owners were very responsive and easy to work with from our multiple questions pre-stay to looking for a lost bracelet. The house was clean and comfortable and the space was great for our purposes (family reunion.) The area offered various activities within a short driving distance. These included swimming, resort zipline and slide, food and more. The house is located on a dead end country road which is good for walking - very little traffic. This rental is a great value for the space offered. We would highly recommend a stay here!

Owner's reply: Carolyn, Thanks so much for the kind words about the house and your experience staying there. We are so happy that you enjoyed it and that you were able to hold your family reunion at our home. Kind regards - Bob & Sue

“Warm and Fuzzy”

Reviewed 26 Mar 2014

A great choice. Strategically located in the heart of ski / snowmobile country. We enjoyed the hot tub very much and all amenities where great.

Owner's reply: George, Thanks very much for taking the time to write a review for our rental home. We'd love to have you stay again in the future - feel free to reach out to me when the need arises. Kind regards, ...Bob & Sue Thomas

“Ski trip”

Reviewed 28 Jan 2014

I stayed here with a group of 13 people over the course of 5 days and it was absolutely fantastic. We had more than enough room for sleeping comfortably and were even able to all eat together in one place which is normally an issue with houses that sleep many but can fit them all into the dining area. If I return to the area with a sizable group then this will be the first place I contact.

“Amazing!”

Reviewed 13 Jan 2014

The pictures of this house do not do it justice!!! We spend a weekend away every year and this has been the best house yet! Not just because of the amazing house but also because of the location and wonderful owners. They were easy to get in touch with and answered all questions promptly. Will definitely be looking to rent again next year!

Owner's reply: Jess, Thanks very much for the glowing review on our home in Ludlow, VT. I already replied to Fallon about renting for next New Years... Kind regards, ...Bob

Amazing! The pictures of this house do not do it justice!!! We spend a weekend away every year and this has been the best house yet! Not just because of the amazing house but also because of the location and wonderful owners. They were easy to get in touch with and answered all questions promptly. Will definitely be looking to rent again next year!

Happy New Year to you and your family. We had a great time at your beautiful home and enjoyed everything.

My wife and I had a fantastic time and really look forward to returning soon....very soon!:))))))

You are great to deal with and on behalf of the other families we thank you again for everything.

Thank you, Bob everything is great and you have a beautiful home. We are enjoying the football and wood burning stove.

Hi. Everything is great. Plower was here first thing this am which was great. Had about sixteen inches. At the mtn now. But very happy and the house is absolutely fab!

Hi Bob - all was great at the house, we had a good weekend - some fresh powder on Sat and some real chills on Sunday - it was 0 degrees at the house. Enjoyed the hot tub in this cold weather - nice job with the home decorations - the place looks great. Thanks again.

So renting this house again! Skiing was really great today!

Thank you again for allowing us to stay in your lovely chalet. It was easily one of the best places we have had for a ski trip so far. Everything worked fantastically and I don't have any complaints. If we come back up to the Okemo area with a sizable group again then this will be the first place I look into.

The house was amazing as always. Everyone loved it, and you may have a few more guest inquiries this winter (do I get a finders fee? haha). Things looks soo much different up there in the summer. Looking forward to going again in February.

We had a great time and are already talking about coming back next year. The house is great with an ideal layout for several families with kids and Ludlow is an awesome town. You and your wife also make for an easy and comfortable rental process with lots of information that reduces the fear of scams which are very common in the vacation rental market. I hope to be back in touch in a few months to reserve a weekend for next winter!

Thank you so much for the place last week. We truly enjoyed the mountain and of course the ski house!!!

This place was amazing , perfect, and the whole family had such a wonderful time, I can't say enough positive things, we are sad to leave tomorrow for sure.

We loved it and hope you will have us back next year!! We have stayed at so many places over the years, not just in Vermont, and this has been the most pleasant experience by a mile! Kudos to you and your wife for coordinating everything a guest could possibly want for a wonderful stay. The whole process was simple and straightforward. If we had any suggestions it would be faster internet (some of us had to work)...though we were just happy to have internet since a lot of places don't have it. I'll be in touch next year!

Warm and Fuzzy! A great choice. Strategically located in the heart of ski / snowmobile country. We enjoyed the hot tub very much and all amenities where great.

I can't think of anything that we felt was missing, neglected or not working. I've already saved your information for next season. We'll definitely be in touch.

We arrived without any problems; that combination door lock is great and the house is beautiful!
