About Brigid Sullivan

Brigid Sullivan is happy to welcome you to this idealistic setting in the Green Mountains of south central Vermont. Our family feels fortunate to be able to enjoy the beautiful seasons of Vermont and wants to share it with our guests. We are experienced world travelers and understand what you need to be comfortable away from home. Family ancestors were early settlers in Mount Holly. We love to share local history and great spots to visit. In the summer and fall enjoy the vegetables and herbs from our gardens.

Brigid Sullivan purchased this apartment in 1990

Why Brigid Sullivan chose Ludlow / Okemo Mountain Area

The apartment, attached to our home, with the same spectacular views, is a secret hide away. It is on a dead-end dirt road in a tiny, wonderful Vermont hamlet. At the opposite end of our living areas, the apartment is private and cozy. The property has been a family summer home since the 1940's.

What makes this apartment unique

The landscape is beautiful and it is so peaceful and quiet here. You can hear the winds whispering in the trees or howling in a blizzard and then it is quiet again. The skies are clear at night and the stars are spectacular. Venturing outdoors at night is an amazing experience to be cherished. Walk to the village for coffee and pastry or a sandwich. Enjoy the lake with a refreshing swim or ice skating or fishing. Don't forget your camera as every day is different and the scenery is stunning.

The Village is charming with the historical museum open on weekends. Family style dinners at the Odd Fellow Hall are delicious and a taste of real Vermont. Fireworks and the bonfire, skating and hot chocolate on New Years Eve are right out of Currier and Ives.

Music on the Green during the summer is a relaxing way to spend a great evening.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow. What an amazing experience from top to bottom Brigid and David's Loft provided myself and my family. The Loft was beautiful, spacious, clean, and had every single amenity we could ever hope to have on a vacation. I loved that we had a full kitchen to make ourselves breakfast every morning and look out onto the beautiful landscape. Brigid and David were both very welcoming and gave us advice on how to explore Vermont. We also had fun with their dog who led us on a hike off the property on the first day there. We had such a great time that I can't wait to book another stay!

Lovely stay

Wilder was an added touch to my entire stay at your apartment! Beautiful and clean which made my trip nice and quiet. I'd recommend anyone who wants to stay around Ludlow.

Favorite Part of our East Coast Vacation

  • 5 of 5

After a long journey of visiting eight different states all over the East coast, we took a family survey and everyone agreed- our stay in Vermont was the very best of them all!

We thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful accommodations, the hospitality, and the beauty that surrounded us. The kids have wonderful memories of climbing Buttermilk falls, eating Maple Creemees, and playing outside with Wilder. Brigid was wonderful in helping with suggestions and making sure our stay was fantastic.

We look forward to our next visit!

A great spot for a ski weekend

  • 5 of 5

This rental was the bright spot in our very chilly stay. We had the misfortune of choosing one of the coldest weekends of the winter for a ski weekend at Okemo however this rental brightened our visit tremendously. We stayed with our two teenage sons and there was plenty of room for everyone. The architecture is beautiful with a high cathedral ceiling, exposed beams and hardwood floors. The beds were comfortable and the unit was clean. The kitchen is well stocked with cookware and supplies for cleaning up and the overall unit is bright and well-lit. Since it was so cold, Brigid supplied us with packets of hand and feet warmers to use on the mountain as well as extra heaters to use in the apartment. We used the space heaters only sparingly however because the unit is also well-insulated and warm. One word of caution that an all-wheel drive vehicle is a necessity in the winter months - not all roads are treated. Overall this rental was great.

Great weekend retreat

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Brigid for sharing your lovely home with us. We really enjoyed staying there. The girls didn't want to leave the loft and they wanted to take Wilder home with them.

It was such a great homey place to come back to after skiing all day

Cozy and large!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment had lovely views and a well equipped kitchen as described. Brigid even pulled out the charcoal grill w accessories when asked. There is a large snow mobile trail at the rear of the property. Okemo is maybe fifteen minutes door to door. How nice. The nest thermostat was a nice touch. Loved having a full bath. There is a shared entry to the main house to access the apartment to be mindful of if you intend on complete seclusion. A tool room or shop may be located under the apartment and noise can be heard if people are there but this only occurred one evening and was not bad. If I had to make two suggestions it may be a new mattress in the king room and a new tv. That said, the place is lovely and we'd come back. The hosts are gracious.

Perfect Vermont Experience

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful stay at this location! It is in the heart of everything! Hiking, biking, boating! The host were the best! Extremely helpful in anything I needed help with! The accommodations were just what I was looking for and very comfortable. It is Maple Sugar time, so lots of sap flowing through tubes to make the BEST maple syrup on earth! I will be back next year for ski season, for sure!
