About Barb Silver Holt

We live in southeastern CT, are 2 professionals (business owner, professor), and have 2 grown daughters (19 and 29).

Barb Silver Holt purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Barb Silver Holt chose Lake Rescue

We bought Hemlocks in 2004 and spent 1.5 years carefully renovating it, making the most of the cozy spaces. It has been in Barb's family since it was built in 1939, and she has many happy memories of summers on the lake and learning to ski at Okemo and Killington.

What makes this cottage unique

Sitting in the hot tub looking out over the lake with a glass of wine after skiing or hiking is heaven. Being on Lake Rescue is peaceful serenity, and we come up as often as we can. The lake is magical any season, and almost always quiet. Hemlocks is our second home, we keep it immaculate, and it is filled with personal items and extra touches that make it warm, welcoming, and fun.

Doesn't get much better than the Hemlocks!

We have now stayed at Hemlocks 2x this winter and cannot wait for the next trip up. The cottage is right on Lake Rescue and just a few minutes drive from Okemo so it is a perfect location. The Hemlocks is very cozy. It has great decor, warm fire place, comfortable couch/beds, etc. The hot tub is fantastic. Nothing better than getting back from long day on the slopes and soaking in the tub with a drink and view of the lake. The kitchen is great as well. We went up both times with a group of 7 people and didn't eat out once. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need and a gas grill in back for all your BBQ needs. The dining room table has plenty of space for food, drink and after dinner gaming (cards, dice, backgammon, etc.). Some other sweet little perks: Bose speaker system with input for iPod, computer, etc. Cross country skis and snowshoes and a crockpot!!!
The owners are amazing as well. Very accommodating and generous who you can tell take great pride in maintaining a beautiful cottage and ensuring their guests have a good time.

We highly recommend the Hemlocks and can't wait for the next time we can get up there. We did both times in the winter this year and hoping to see it in the summer!

ABSOLUTE PERFECTION!!!

  • 5 of 5
The property was even more beautiful than shown in the pictures. Barb was beyond helpful and quick to respond to questions and the rental process went smoothly. The home is amazingly layed out and with 8 women it fit us perfectly. The little touches in the home made us feel right at home and the woodworking inside is something that we admired the entire weekend. The kitchen had everything we could have needed and more. The boats were a fantastic to enjoy coffee while on the lake and the hot tub was perfect for winding down at night. This house was everything we could have dreamed of and more and we will definatly be returning!!! Thank you so much for letting us enjoy your gorgeous home!!!

Lake Side Vacation Paradise

  • 5 of 5
The Hemlocks and Lake Rescue are everything I imaged for a perfect summer vacation. The location of the home has a breathtaking view of the lake and is a stones throw away from the home. The property is very clean and cozy with colorful furnishings and wood floors. The kitchen is so well equipped and had just what we needed to make great meals. The property has all types of outdoor boating including kayaks. canoes, and a row boat. There is even a power boat which you can rent. An added feature is the short drive to shopping in Ludlow and close to the athletic facilities at Jackson Gore on Okemo Mountain. The owners were great in responding to our questions. I strongly recommend the Hemlocks for a couple who needs some rest time or as a family vacation!

The village of Ludlow, about 7 minutes from our cottage, is quintessential Vermont - it is all here in the Green Mountains and it is all beautiful - each season has its unique offerings. Many charming Vermont villages (Weston, Woodstock, Manchester, etc.) are within a 1 hour drive down beautiful country roads. Our house is on the largest lake in the area, 5 minutes from Okemo, 20 minutes from Killington. Good grocery shopping, restaurants and night-life are here in Ludlow, along with many other activities of your choosing, such as hiking, golfing, antiquing, and just relaxing. Besides great skiing/snowboarding, Okemo has a spa/fitness facility, ice skating rink, and 'adventure zone' with zip-lining and numerous other activities, excellent golf, swimming pool, etc. Several X-country ski areas are also nearby.
