If you’re looking for an exclusive getaway in the USA, then there are few better states to look towards than Vermont - its peaceful, green vistas are a world removed from the big cities and thronged coastlines found in the bigger and more popular states. Ludlow, in which you can find the Okemo Mountain Ski Resort, is one of the most interesting options for tourists looking to kick back and having a great holiday in the state of Vermont. It’s a four-season town that offers plenty of winter sports options but has enough walking trails, golf courses and dining spots to ensure that you’ll enjoy your break no matter when you visit. Check out the best VRBO vacation rentals in Ludlow, Vermont below for a taste of what awaits you in this delightful part of the world.
This is a classy residence with enough space for eight travelers, and its private setting means that after a day on the slopes you can come back to relax in comfort, peace, and quiet. A fully stocked kitchen allows you to prepare delicious home-cooked meals and enjoy them in the magnificent surroundings, and all of this is just 1 mile (1.6 km) from the Okemo Mountain Resort. It is advised that if you visit in winter, you bring a 4WD vehicle, as the track to the cabin can become slippery when it snows.
