About the property

6 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 kitchens, hot tub, 3 boats, sleeps 16

Lake Rescue Chalet is an amenity-packed lake house with a private dock and three boats!

This cozy chalet has everything you need to feel at home on your getaway with family or friends: Six bedrooms. Two kitchens – one new, one recently renovated – two family rooms and two dining rooms. Plenty of room for your group of family or friends! Two large decks surrounded by pine trees. A large yard for playing or relaxing. A glorious outdoor hot tub to sink into on a cool summer evening. Close proximity to the region’s largest and most beautiful lake, 200-acre Lake Rescue, with your own private dock and three boats.

Let’s be clear – it’s a lakeside chalet, not the Ritz. Many of the bedrooms are small, as they are with many lake area homes, and there’s a breathtakingly large amount of knotty pine. Chipmunks occasionally scamper in the door. But the public areas are cozy, the windows upstairs are enormous, there’s a closet full of games, you don’t have to worry about your little ones breaking stuff, and the outdoor spaces are breathtaking.

Lake Rescue Chalet sleeps 16 people on two levels that feature three bedrooms apiece. Upstairs and down are connected by a wrought-iron spiral staircase, and each level has its own bathroom, fireplace, TV and VCR. Upstairs has a large-screen HDTV. It's a terrific home for families and friends who want to spend time together but also cherish their privacy.

In spring and summer, your group has exclusive use of a canoe and two kayaks at our private dock 1 minute down the dirt road -- as well as swimming, fishing, golfing, sunbathing or relaxing in two handcrafted wood park benches! Barbecue on the huge front deck, watch the great blue herons that live just over the ridge, play volleyball in the large yard, roast marshmallows over the fire pit, nap in a hammock in the woods, go hiking, take the family on a picnic, or go road or mountain biking. At night, watch the stars while relaxing in the hot tub on the back deck.

(The address is 26 Benson Point Rd,

9% VT lodging tax, $200 cleaning and $100 hot tub payment will be added to total rent, as well as a CSA travel insurance payment.

A ONE-WEEK rental is required in July and August, Sunday to Sunday.

FALL FOLIAGE season is also very popular.

IN WINTER -- Little Brook House is just 3.5 miles from Okemo Mountain Resort and 11 from Killington Skyeship. It is available as a winter seasonal rental, or for winter weeks and weekends.

About Lisa

We're a family of four who love the mountains and the outdoors. We lived in New York for two decades before relocating to Colorado during the recession. We get back to Vermont as often as we can!

Lisa purchased this chalet in 2000

Why Lisa chose Ludlow / Okemo Mountain Area

We love Lake Rescue Chalet because of its access to Okemo Ski Resort in winter -- just five minutes down the road -- and to Lake Rescue in summer for swimming, boating and fishing. We like its homey, woodsy feel, and the flat yard for volleyball and other fun activities. We love to sit around the fire pit toasting marshmallows at the end of the day.

What makes this chalet unique

We love that the lake is just a two-minute walk, so we never had to worry about the kids stepping outside and drowning when we weren't looking. We added two huge decks in the front and the back so that we could truly live outdoors. The hot tub feels like a wonderful luxury. We also love the two living areas so that we can send the kids downstairs to watch their movies while the adults hang upstairs sometimes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to thank you again for letting us rent your Lake House. We all had a great time. The house was very comfortable and clean, and well stocked. Getting in and out was a breeze, and we left everything as we found it.

Everything we hoped for

  • 5 of 5

The place was amazing, with ample space as well as parking. And the 2nd kitchen came in handy when cooking for 12.

It was also extremely helpful that Lisa spelled everything out clearly, both in email and with a binder in the home to help us know all the workings of the cabin.

The owner is very responsive

  • 3 of 5

Here is the important thing. The owner is really responsive and cares a lot about this property and your experience. I am confident my stay was not typical. The cleaning crew had definitely slacked off before our arrival which made things disappointing. This is the reason I give it 3 stars. The condition at the time was sub par. That said the owner was responsive to our feedback and took great concern to it. I am appreciative of her attention. Aside from this, the location itself is great. Right near Okemo which had a nice summer festival going on over the holiday weekend. The area of VT is beautiful.

Great Stay. Perfect for what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our wedding last month and it was great. The owner was easy to reach while booking our trip and gave us tons of info regarding the property so we were fully prepared for the weekend. It easily slept our wedding party (10 people) and a few more crashers. It's not a luxury home but it is a very nice lake house! Hot tub was great too! Thank you Lisa!

Nice house and a fun lake

  • 4 of 5

The house was in nice shape and well cleaned. Tons of deck space and some open area in front of the house. The fire pit could use some attention but the hot tub and boats were in good shape.

Just an fyi, there are other houses nearby so if you're looking to be outside late noise could be an issue.

Family convenient and great location

  • 3 of 5

Location and distribution is great for big families. Also locations is perfect (5 min to Okemo Mountain / 10 min to restaurants in town). Kitchen area is new and very convenient for cooking. It also has a great fire place. We recommend to change the table cloth, beds, mattress, cauches and upgrade the bathrooms to have a better impression since they looked old. With a short investment the house could be a gem and reach the 5 stars!!! House needs lots of love, but we had a great time.
