Why Susan Kibler chose Okemo Mountain Resort
When I searched for a ski vacation home, I visited almost every ski area in the North East. I loved Okemo. Okemo has the greatest snow coverage of any mountain. They make snow constantly and skiing often continues into April. The trails are impeccably groomed. We also found the mountain very friendly. Skiers are polite and chat on the lifts. Totally unpretentious. Okemo easily accessible from New York City and Boston. Unlike many mountains, Okemo has a genuine village (Ludlow) with great local places with lots of surprises to explore year round. The restaurants are great (It is a must to visit Harry’s. Try the shrimp and corn bisque!). There are lots of local attractions from the delicious wine and cheese shop to glass makers and beautiful nature destinations. Great local markets too (Check out Singletons. It has everything including great milk vodka.) It is great for kids, the children’s programs are amazing. My son is skiing better than us and he looks forward to going. The instructors love kids and it shows! Our unit is very bright and cheery and we find it a relaxing get away in all seasons. We come to get away from the NJ summer heat and my husband fly fishes at some great local holes and always hike to the fire tower at the top of the mountain. We love being so high up on the mountain during ski season. We never have to go to the base and can totally avoid the base lift lines. You definitely feel spoiled!
What makes this Condo unique
Bright and cheery. Obviously, ski on/ski off -great for hot chocolate and lunch breaks. Our two story high windows look out on forest, providing privacy and beautiful views in every season. We have everything you need for a comfortable stay. It is a second home for us, not just "a rental". For example we have 2 coffee pots, one for decaf and one for regular. Specialty glasses for everything from beer to margaritas! We have what you need to make your stay your own, from pizza pans to toasters for bagels. Lots of board games for children, puzzles and books. TV/DVDs in two bedrooms in addition to the living room so all can see what they like.
Pool / Spa
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Nice place but very hot without AC
The place had all the amenities and was in a nice location. I would not recommend staying during the hot summer months. Even though you on top of the mountain it was very hot inside during the day. The fans worked to keep the heat down during the night in the bedrooms but the living room remained warm overnight. Lots of steps if your not in shape. Overall we had a good time and the kids liked the pool.
Beautiful Okemo location
Great location on Okemo - we enjoyed visiting off season - quiet and peaceful, yet close to soo much.
Great great place!!!
Everything about this condo was perfect. Great size, well organized, in great shape. The access to mountain is top notch as well! We will definitely be back!
Great stay at Okemo
This is a charming unit in a dynamite location. The unit was clean, comfortable and well stocked (including an ice pack that my wife used). The owners also provided great recommendations for grocery stores and restaurants. There is plenty of room here so you can spread out. The unit is about 100 yards from the top of the A-B quads from the base so you do not have to go to the base and deal with the crowds down there - for any of you have had to start from the base on the weekend, this is a real plus and a breeze to get to the Sunburst Six! We lucked out with the weather considering how late in the season it was but we had fresh snow on Monday and blue skies the rest of the trip. Thanks for a great time and we will look to book your unit again in the future.
Thank you Michael. So glad you enjoyed our location and condo. Glad our recommendations were helpful. It is great to avoid the base!! Hope to welcome you back. Susan
Not what we expected
We thought "Ski-on/Ski-off" meant first floor but this is actually a third floor condo, not what we expected. From the parking lot you go down two flights of steps then up three flights to get to the condo. The front bedroom was very cold, likely a minor repair but it needs to be repaired as it was very uncomfortable. Otherwise, clean, spacious, well stocked and a nice welcome basket on arrival. A nice condo, could use a better description.
I am glad you enjoyed our spacious and well stocked unit.
I find it surprising that you did not realize we were on the top floor. Especially as we had several direct email conversations about just this topic, and I described carefully the exact situation or our unit and the stairs.
We only want potential guests to have accurate expectations. This is why in addition to mentioning several times in our listing that we are on the top floor so that we have the double height vaulted ceilings, we have a photograph of the staircases to our unit in our VRBO description to avoid any misunderstandings.
Great location, comfortable family-friendly condo with all the amenities.
So glad you enjoyed!
