There are two full bathrooms in this house. One on the first floor and one on the second floor. Our bathrooms are stocked with white fluffy towels, top quality liquid hand soap, body wash, shampoo and conditioner. There is also a hair dryer.


Outdoor Grill

There is a charcoal grill located on the side porch by the kitchen door. You will need to supply your own charcoal. You’ll find long handled grilling tools in the kitchen.

Please move the grill to the driveway and away from the house and propane tanks before using. We’d appreciate it if, when done you’d place it back on the porch.

Please clean the grate after using it by wadding a piece of foil up and running it over the cooking surface before putting it back on the porch.

Fire Pit

There is an outdoor fire pit in the back yard. It’s available during spring, summer and fall. During the winter it’s not shoveled and may not be accessible. You’ll find firewood by the shed on a rack. Please cover the wood back up when done.

Fire pit rules:

  • No more than 3 logs at a time
  • Always put the fire out with the garden hose in the back yard, turn off the hose at the hose bib when done!

Ski Locker

There is a lockable outside ski locker located on the kitchen porch. You’ll find the key hanging on the key holder by the kitchen door and coat rack. Please do not store skis and snowboards on the house.

Please, DO NOT TAKE the key.



The North House Lodge is very well insulated. You’ll find the Nest thermostat located in the kitchen. Feel free to adjust the temperature to your comfort level. We do ask that you help us keep the bills down by lowering the temperature to 65 when you leave for the day and down to 55 degrees when you check out.

The third floor has an electric radiator that will help keep the room very warm. Turn it on medium or high a few hours before going to bed to warm the room.


Besides looking pretty, the gas fireplace in the living room will help heat the first and second floor quickly. There is a wall switch to the right of the fireplace to turn it on. Please turn the fireplace off when leaving the house.


Window Fans and tower fans are located in each bedroom.

Bring the cool air in! Vermont is wonderfully cool at night.

Use the window fans to bring in the cool air from outside. The window fans are simple to place in the windows, gently pull out the side panels until they fit into the window grooves on each side of the window frame. Do not leave them in the window when it’s raining and please put them back in the closet when you check out.

The weather cools down significantly at night here in Ludlow. The easiest way to keep the house cool is to open the top and bottom windows on each floor when it’s cool. Close the windows and drapes when it’s hottest during the day.

To open the top of the window pull down at the finger pulls. To open the bottom, pull up. This helps circulate the air in the room. Hot air flows out of the top opening and cool air flows in.

We also have a few tower fans located in each of the bedroom closets.



We have two markets nearby for groceries. Shaws Market on Pond Street is a short drive or walk from the house.

Singleton’s, Market which we highly recommend you visit at least once if you’re a foodie, is located a few miles down the road. Great smoked and marinated meats and more.

Locals always boast you can buys your guns, liquor, food and more at Singletons. They even have a small upscale clothing dept.
