Our Lodge in Ludlow, VT

The Blake House

  • In 1968 the Club bought a wonderful old house on Pleasant Street and converted it into a Lodge, which its members use year-round. 
  • The house was named “The Blake House” in memory of Robert W. Blake, an avid skiier, long time member, past treasurer, and many times past president, who dedicated much of his time and many of his efforts to the Manchester Ski Club.
