'BEAR DOWN' ON YOUR VERMONT GET AWAY ! OKEMO, KILLINGTON, LAKES, RESTRAUNTS !

Echo Lake House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14)

Winter at Bear Down' is a great destination for family and friends to reunite and create new lasting memories.” Bear Down” is decorated in the best of furnishings, tucked away in the classic Vermont setting. Enhanced with large windows in every room allows winters beauty to enter into the indoors. Non skiers will enjoy the day with a hike/walk around the neighborhood and cuddled up with a book by the fireplace enjoying the beauty of pure Vermont at it's best. “Bear Down” was designed with the skier in mind as the entry/mud room has individual cubbies for your boots, helmets and gloves. Adjacent next the mud room is the washer dryer so that the wet stuff after playing in the snow can go right in! The house is equipped with a real wood fireplace that is gas lit, making getting started a breeze. The living quarters have been designed for entertaining. The chef of the group will never feel alone while preparing the meal as everyone is part of the environment which leads to many pitching in. Many hands make for light work as they say! Dinners at “bear down” always feel like a holiday, creating memories. The kids in the group will all gather upstairs in the TV/video room and bond together giving the adults time on their own. The bedding at “Bear down” is of top quality. This insures a good night sleep when it’s your time to turn in. Skiing is conveniently located, with Okemo’s Jackson Gore only 5 miles south, and Killington’s Sky ship gondola 13 miles north.

Sleigh riding on our quiet street after a snow fall on a flexible flier sure bring back memories to many of us! I recommend it! Car pooling the sledder’s back to the top on a cold, cold night has been fun for us on many a star lit night.

We enjoy working with our guest and take pride in ensuring a perfect stay at “Bear down”

WE look forward to hearing from you!

WE rented in Vermont for 25 years before building. We new what we needed and how best to design it after all of those years in different ski homes.

'bear down' came out perfect in every aspect!

Wonderful, wonderful house

Randy and Lori really knew what they were doing when building this house. Top notch finishes; great layout for multiple families; and all the conveniences that you could want. Kids had a blast skiing/riding at nearby Okemo and Killington, and even sledding outside the house. We always, always enjoy our time here.

Beautiful home

Randy & Lori,
What a beautiful home - thank you for sharing! The attention to detail can be found throughout the house - from the large, "skier's" mudroom to the relaxing family room with the gas/wood fireplace (so easy to start a real wood fire). The upstairs, with bedrooms and an open tv/play area, was a perfect getaway for the kids! The home made is it so easy to relax - just what we needed.

We hope to make it an annual getaway!

Hi Randy and Lori, we had another great time in your place. It was a good thing we had that extra day due to the storm. Good food and drink, good skiing, and most importantly, laughing and relaxing with all our family there was really special and we thank you for that.

Magnificent home

What a magnificent home! It is even more beautiful in person and was the perfect choice for our family's vacation. Randy and Lori thought of everything when building this mountain getaway. We arrived with our 3 children and dog and were joined by 2 other families with seven children between them. The house is spacious and well laid out with plenty of sleeping and playing space for everyone. the very large open area upstairs provided a place for the kids to play allowing the adults to catch up. Speaking of sleeping, the beds were incredible with high quality linens and pillows. In fact, that is true for all the furnishings in this very clean and well maintained home. I Loved so many features of the home but especially the mud room with all of the cubbies for boots , helmets etc. as well as the gas fireplace and comfy leather couches. We were able to get what we needed at local grocery stores and ludlow has a number of very good restaurants . The Irish pub ended up being our favorite place to eat out.
We couldn't wait to get home everyday and build a roaring fire and when it was time to go we hated to leave. Thank you again , Randy and Lori for being so easy to work with and for building this amazing home! We look forward to coming back again and again!

The Best Vacation Rental...Ever!!!

Randy and Lori,
What an awesome week! We arrived back in Virginia just a bit ago but wanted to drop a quick line to let you know how much we enjoyed ourselves. You and Lori have a wonderful home and we felt like we were at home from the moment we arrived. Our friends that stayed with us have rented several vacation homes in the past and they both stated the Bear Down was by far the nicest/best home they have ever stayed in.
We had everything from beautiful clear days to heavy rain and even a little snow but nothing stopped us from enjoying ourselves even if it was just sitting on the couch enjoying the view while taking in a warm and cozy fire. My wife and I are already considering reservations for the same time next year. We will keep you posted.
Our sincere thanks for a vacation made all the better by the wonderful accommodations.
All the best to you and your family,
Karl and Marilyn
