Overview

Lake Rescue House Rental Photos and Description

3 + Bedrooms - 3.5 Baths + 1 add'l large room with pull out sofa and pvt bath

Our new (built in 2008) luxury 3,500 SF timberframe home is located directly on Lake Rescue and close to Okemo and Killington ski areas. The views of the lake and mountains are spectacular and the location is wonderful all year round.

Our Bensonwood timeberfame house (also known as a post and beam house) is characterized by beautiful Douglas Fir beams, towering cathedral ceilings, and a wide open main floor. The Great Room is open to the Kitchen and Dining Room. This openness makes it possible for everyone to be included in family or group discussion or activities, no matter where they are on the main level.

The home has 3 bedrooms, all with queen beds, plus a very large additional private room with a bathroom and pull-out sofa. The house can comfortably sleep 6. Although the house can accomodate additional people we prefer to limit the occupancy so as to keep the house in excellent condition for future guests.

The house has three levels; main, upper and lower. The main level has a magnificent “Great Room” with cathedral ceiling, many exposed beams, a fireplace, and large windows overlooking the lake. The kitchen has beautiful cherry cabinets, a large gorgeous granite counter, new stainless appliances, and breakfast counter which seats five. The dining room has a large cherry table.. The Great Room opens onto a beautiful deck overlooking the lake, which has stairs down to a patio and the lake.

On the upper level the master bedroom overlooks the lake. The master bath is decorated with travertine tile and has a walk-in shower. The shower has both a rain shower head and wall-mounted shower head with many different spray options. In addition we have a large “soaking tub” for relaxation. All of the bathrooms have granite countertops and travertine tile.

The loft overlooks the Great Room and has wonderful views of the lake. The loft has a sofa and TV and is a great place to escape to read or watch TV. Also the upper level has a large (24’ x 24’) “game room” with a cathedral ceiling, full bath, and a pull-out sofa andbathroom. This can serve as room where kids gather to play or watch TV. We have full laundry facilities on both the upper and lower levels.

On the lower level, the “family room”, with large windows looks directly out onto the lake. A door opens onto a spectacular patio which also overlooks the lake. The room has a French entry door, gas fireplace, a sofa, and LCD TV. The lower level also has two bedrooms. One bedroom on the lower floor also looks directly onto the lake while the other has a lake view. There is a beautiful bath with a large walk-in shower and granite counters on the lower floor

The lower level also has a second laundry room with a full size washer-dryer, as well as a second refrigerator. (This laundry room is in addition to the washer-dryer we have on the upper level.)

The nearby village of Ludlow, Vermont contains many fine restaurants, while nearby Chester is known for its fine antique stores. Weston, only a 15-minute drive away, is home to the famous Vermont Country Store and also the beautiful Weston Priory. Manchester, Vermont is well known for its many designer factory outlets and Woodstock, Vermont for picture post-card beauty and typical New England charm.

In summer, the fishing, swimming, and boating are excellent and it is a perfect place to spend a family vacation. There are multiple decks where you can relax in the sun any time of day. Wide stairs provide easy access to the lake where there is a generally sandy bottom for children to wade. The dock is a perfect place to tie up your boat, jump into the water, or fish (the lake is stocked with fish - perch, bass, and trout abound). A canoe is available for you to explore all the nooks and crannies of Lake Rescue.

The beautiful and recently renovated and expanded 18-hole Okemo Valley/Fox Run Golf course is nearby. An outdoor grill and picnic table are available for you to enjoy a wonderful cookout with spectacular views of the lake. And you can eat outdoors on the deck with a spectacular view. Other nearby activities include driving and hiking Okemo Mountain and riding the mountain slide at Pico.

In the fall, the foliage is spectacular. It is also a great place to enjoy a hike in the surrounding woods or antiquing in neighboring towns. And autumn is the perfect time to enjoy the foliage while canoeing around Lake Rescue.

In winter, the house is ideal for outdoor activities. The house is about three miles from Okemo and 12 miles from Killington’s Northeast chairlift. Lake Rescue is approximately one and one-half miles long and offers numerous activities in addition to nearby downhill skiing.

Lake Rescue usually has excellent conditions for cross-country skiing and the scenery is always beautiful. A full loop of the lake is approximately four miles. If you tire of exploring Lake Rescue, Echo Lake and Amherst Lake are easy to reach via interconnecting trails. Nearby Okimo Valley/Fox Run Cross Country Ski Center has extensive groomed trails for classical or skating skiers.

Ice fisherman love the lakes, and when the conditions are right, the ice skating is also good. Flood lights directed onto the lake allow you to enjoy lake activities after dark. Snowmobilers can utilize the lakes and the nearby access to all the interconnecting ski trails that Vermont offers (one-fourth mile from Lake Rescue). Once on the trails, you can even ride into Canada.

Lake Rescue Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family loved the Eckle retreat. It is every thing you could want in a VT. stay. We came east from Nevada and our daughter and family joined us from NYC for Easter weekend.. A blessing to spend it at one of the nicest spots in Vermont. While we did do some skiing we all hated to leave the house as it is so cozy and nicely appointed. Just looking out at the lake from the huge windows is so great! Thanks, we will be back.

Spectacular property!

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly beautiful house in one of the best locations on Lake Rescue. The great room was the perfect place for our family to gather after a day of canoeing, kayaking and swimming in the lake, just a few steps away, and we also loved grilling our lunches and dinners on the deck with stunning views of the lake. The condition of the house was perfect - everything is essentially brand new. Our family loved our trip and we'll definitely stay here again our next time back in Vermont.

Awesome 4 season chalet on lake with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We have visited this amazing spot in August of 2014 and had an awesome time. The house / cottage is extremely comfortable and has everything readily available you would need. The views from many of the rooms is stunning. The lake is great for swimming, paddling and easily accessible. The local area has fantastic biking and hiking trails for all levels, there is shopping nearby as well. An great place to stay in an awesome location.

AMAZING

  • 5 of 5

The house is amazing and you can actually see the ski area from the deck. It took less than five minutes to be parked and getting tickets at the resort. After skiing was awesome with drinks watching the snow fall and we even got some ice skating in down on the like below the house. We will be back as often as possible.
