240px-Okemo-2005-0316aLudlow, Vermont is a beautiful, quiet town next to Okemo Mountain Resort.  Unlike many resort-side towns on the east coast, it has not become overrun with ski huts, chalets and boutique shops, instead keeping truer to its Victorian Vermont charm.  It’s the perfect place to go when you’re looking for a great ski vacation with quiet surroundings.

Though Ludlow is relatively quiet, there are plenty of things to do.  Okemo Mountain has the largest vertical drop in southern Vermont, and with over 100 trails covering the mountain, there’s plenty to explore! There’s also plenty of local history to explore, including some of Calvin Coolidge’s former haunts.

Okemo Valley has a great amount of arts, crafts and antique shops including Fletcher Farm in Ludlow. Take classes on everything from drawing to pottery!

There are many great places to eat in Ludlow.  You’ll find anything from casual pubs to delicious fine dining.  Many focus on farm to table dining, utilizing the freshest, finest ingredients that the Okemo Valley can provide.

Most of the places to stay in Ludlow are charming bed and breakfasts and inns, though there are some larger hotels in the area.  However, it’s really the perfect place to go if you’re looking for a small boutique hotel or bed and breakfast with very personalized service.   Stay in beautiful, romantic Victorian homes that are just a short walk from Okemo, or stay right at the base of the mountain, practically right in front of the chairlift!

Ludlow is really the perfect destination if you’re looking for a quiet getaway that still has lots of fun.  Ski, snowboard, or spend lots of time out in the snow, then come down the mountain for drinks at a quiet restaurant or just relax by the fireside and sip hot chocolate.
