Why John chose Ludlow
It is in the perfect location for swimming, boating, skiing and viewing VT foliage. This property had a 1940's or 50's cottage on it when we purchased it in 1983. It served as our family retreat as our children grew up and also fell in love with VT, Lake Rescue and Okemo. Our daughter had such fond memories of VT, she decided to get married nearby. As our family grew, in 2008 we decided to completely rebuild the house so it could accommodate them. It continues to be our family retreat and is our dream home.
