You know what that means, don&rsquo;t you? You better make plans for that special someone in your life! Don&rsquo;t worry, Ludlow has plenty of options!</p> <p dir="ltr"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/6200/blog/event-img-vday-18.jpg" style="float: left; width: 200px; height: 200px;" class="featured">What better way to start your Valentine&rsquo;s Day than with a few runs on <a href="https://www.okemo.com/event/valentines-day/">Okemo</a>! Nothing says romance like a ride up the bubble chair with your favorite someone. Better yet, Okemo is setting the mood for Valentine&rsquo;s Day with a <a href="https://www.okemo.com/event/valentines-day/">scavenger hunt</a> on the slopes. Ski or ride around the mountain to find &ldquo;hidden&rdquo; red hearts along the trails. If you find one, return it to guest services for a prize!</p> <p dir="ltr">My perfect Valentine&rsquo;s Day includes a homemade meal at home, which makes for a great way to end your day after hitting the slopes. The way to my heart is most definitely through a <a href="https://singletonsvt.com">Singleton&rsquo;s</a> steak and their &ldquo;to die for&rdquo; loaded baked potato. Don&rsquo;t forget to pick up a delicious dessert from one of the Okemo Valley&rsquo;s bakeries! Check out <a href="https://www.vtprop.com/blog/posts/2019/01/28/the-sweet-tooth-fix-the-ludlow-way/"> last week&rsquo;s blog</a> for more ideas on the perfect sweet treat for you and your Valentine!</p> <p dir="ltr"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/6200/blog/Valentines-Dinner-slide-2.jpg" style="float: right; width: 300px; height: 91px;">However, if you are looking for a romantic dinner out on the town, the Okemo Valley has many options for you! A great option that is sure to impress your significant other is dining at <a href="http://echolakeinn.com">The Echo Lake Inn</a>. They are hosting Saint Valentine&rsquo;s Specials with a delicious four course meal with champagne for the evening. Make it a Valentine&rsquo;s Day you will never forget and splurge on getting a room for the night in one of the inn&rsquo;s cozy rooms.</p> <p dir="ltr"><img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/6200/blog/chr-logo-small2_2.png" style="float: left; width: 178px; height: 70px;">Another option with a special Valentine&rsquo;s Day dinner and rooms is <a href="https://www.castlehillresortvt.com">The Castle Hill Resort &amp; Spa</a>. The Castle frequently runs winter specials for lodging that include spa and dinner packages perfect for a romantic evening. After hitting the slopes, enjoy the afternoon getting a massage and a dip in the outdoor heated pool or hottub, followed by a delicious gourmet dinner.</p> <p dir="ltr">If The Echo Lake Inn and The Castle Hill Resort &amp; Spa aren&rsquo;t your style, checkout one of our other local restaurants for a Valentine&rsquo;s Day meal. Some of my personal favorites are <a href="http://www.thedowntowngrocery.com">The Downtown Grocery</a>, <a href="http://www.stemwindervt.com">Stemwinder</a>, <a href="http://homestylehostel.com">Homestyle Hostel</a>, and <a href="https://samssteak.com">Sam&rsquo;s Steakhouse</a>. Even if they don&rsquo;t have a special Valentine&rsquo;s Day menu, I promise you and your sweetheart won&rsquo;t be disappointed!</p> <p dir="ltr">For the perfect ending to the perfect day, head to <a href="https://www.mainandmountain.com">Main &amp; Mountain</a> for a nightcap. Their delicious house cocktails are certainly made with love, but if you prefer beer or wine, they have one of the best selections in town!</p> <p dir="ltr">Happy Valentine&#39;s Day from our Vermont Properties team!</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Lakes Region Local Events Ludlow Real Estate Okemo News Okemo Real Estate Okemo Valley Region Rentals On Okemo Sellers Ski On Okemo Ski Season Ski Season In VT Vermont Real Estate Winter In Vermont Winter In VT towns in VT fun in Ludlow Real estate agents Snow in VT Okemo Mountain snow on okemo Travel Vail Resorts Snowstorm Snow Day Mon, 11 Feb 2019 14:22:10 -0500 A Mountain Condo for Everyone! https://www.vtprop.com/blog/posts/2018/12/14/a-mountain-condo-for-everyone/ <p dir="ltr">Are you in the market for a condo?

If you are looking for adventure, spend the day in the <a href="https://www.okemo.com/activities/adventure-zone/">Adventure Zone</a> on the Timber Ripper or in the snow tubing park!

If you are an avid skier, <a href="https://www.vtprop.com/okemo-mountain-condo-guide/winterplace/">Winterplace</a> arguably has the best location on the mountain for you! With this location, you get to avoid the 1st round of lifts and head right to the top of the mountain! This is the ideal place to ensure that you get the first tracks when the mountain opens.

Ledgewood offers 3 and 4 bedroom condos and is located on one of Okemo&rsquo;s maintained ski trails. These condos are bright and spacious and definitely give you the mountain feel. Ledgewood&rsquo;s location makes you feel like you are out of the hustle and bustle of the main areas, but is a quick ski or ride to the base of the mountain.</p> <p dir="ltr">&nbsp;</p> <p dir="ltr">Another favorite location away from the main base areas is <a href="https://www.vtprop.com/okemo-mountain-condo-guide/okemo-trailside/"> Trailside Village</a>.

Even though some of the condos aren&rsquo;t directly on the trail, Trailside offers a private shuttle with access to Sachem. The condos boast a classic ski house style that make you never want to leave. All you need is a cozy fireplace and mug of hot cocoa and you are good to go!</p> <p dir="ltr">&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;If none of these condo options suit your needs, don&rsquo;t worry, there are more!

That&rsquo;s right! If you are a true Vermonter or trying to become one, you need to know all about stick season.</p> <p dir="ltr">You might ask; what is stick season? It is the time of year when the leaves cover the ground, leaving the trees with nothing but bare branches. There isn&rsquo;t any snow yet, the days get shorter and chillier, while the nights last forever and often leave us with a frost on the morning ground.</p> <p dir="ltr">It is the time of year that skiers and snowboarders anxiously await snowfall and for the mountains to open. As soon as October ends, they are crawling into their basements, attics, or garages to dig out their winter gear. You may even see the hopeful ones walking around town in eskimo hats and down jackets, just praying for those flakes to fall. Some head out to the local ski shops like <a href="https://www.totempoleskishop.com">Totem Pole</a>, <a href="https://www.northernskiworks.com">Northern Ski Works</a>, <a href="https://thebootpro.net">The Boot Pro</a>, or <a href="http://www.tygartmountainsports.com">Tygart Mountain Sports</a> to pick up brand new gear.</p> <p dir="ltr">However, if you are a summer lover, you probably are getting ready to go into hibernation. This most likely entails making all of your favorite comfort food like mac &amp; cheese or beef stew because let&rsquo;s be honest, most local restaurants shut down to prepare for the busy winter season. You are probably also drinking your favorite winter beers like <a href="http://longtrail.com/age-verification?destination=node/2">Long Trail&rsquo;s Harvest</a> or <a href="https://www.harpoonbrewery.com">Harpoon&rsquo;s Winter Warmer</a>.

If you don&rsquo;t like TV, make sure you have a GIANT stack of books because after stick season comes winter, and Vermont winters last forever.</p> <p>Just remember, stick season doesn&#39;t last forever and soon the trees will be filled with beautiful snow and glistening icicles!&nbsp;</p> Buyers Fall In VT Ludlow Real Estate Okemo Real Estate Okemo Valley Region Rentals In Vermont Rentals On Okemo Seasonal Rentals Sellers Selling Your Home Ski On Okemo Ski Season Ski Season In VT Vermont Foliage Vermont Real Estate Winter In Vermont Winter In VT towns in VT fun in Ludlow Real estate agents Snow in VT Okemo Mountain okemo skiing snow on okemo Travel Wed, 07 Nov 2018 13:24:17 -0500 It Snowed at the Summit; Get Your Season Passes NOW! https://www.vtprop.com/blog/posts/2018/10/16/it-snowed-at-the-summit-get-your-season-passes-now/ <p dir="ltr">&nbsp;&nbsp; <img alt="" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/6200/blog/43952245_10156064085121448_2698054569371369472_n.jpg" style="float: left; width: 300px; height: 169px;" class="featured">&nbsp;The announcement everyone has been waiting for; it SNOWED for the first time at the Summit of <a href="https://www.okemo.com">Okemo</a> on Saturday, October 13th!
