About Nancy O'Brien

As a young girl my family vacationed on Lake Rescue every summer renting various cabins around the Lake. We would go every winter and stay at an A-Frame on Okemo mountain to ski. Then my dad purchased property the lake and built his family a dream home that we could enjoy for a lifetime. As time goes and many years of fond memories my parents no longer are able to make the trip from Maryland but we wish to hold on to what is so near and dear to our hearts. Enjoy!!!

Nancy O'Brien purchased this chalet in 1976

Why Nancy O'Brien chose Ludlow / Okemo Mountain Area

The chalet has parking in back and around the side of the house . It has lake access in front of the house and on the other side to Round Pond. There is a basement with one side being a work area with washer/dryer and storage for life jackets, tubes, oars, boats, rakes, etc. Other side has couches and bumper pool table with television. Great kids area! It has access to outside as well. Lots of water frontage to sun with a bonfire pit for evenings. Large , long dock to sit and sun. My favorite spot.

Quiet, Charming Lake Front Home in Ludlow, Vermont on Lake Rescue
average rating of 2.5 based on 2 reviews

We loved the country charm and beautiful location.

  • 4 of 5

What a gem in the woods. Located at the far end of Lake Rescue in a small cove, the space was perfect for our needs. Rustic and very clean with all the emenities the five of us needed.

From daily water skiing (off our own private dock), canoeing, kayaking, swimming and yes, swinging off the nearby island rope, it was a blast. Nightly grilling and relaxing on the deck was tasty & relaxing.

Day trips into the town of Ludlow, up the road to Killington, Woodstock, Quechee (sp.) Gorge, driving through the parks or seeing cheese made at Crowley cheese factory made each day memorable.

We will definately be back to our new temporary home away from home.

The location is great and close to Okemo mtn. Unfortunately, the house was not ready for us or for renting in general in my opinion. There were mouse droppings all over the house, furniture, in kitchen appliances, and in the beds. Also, a bonus dead mouse in the kitchen.The floors were not vacuumed, bathrooms marginal, and there were crumbs on the counter.The stove and oven were dirty. We ended up cleaning/disinfecting the house(after going out to store and purchasing supplies) and beddings ourselves and sticking it out since we had already purchased our ski tickets. The owner was very apologetic and did give us a free extra night for our troubles but it was difficult to sleep the first few nights and not something we would do again. The twin bed mattresses in one bedroom are in poor condition and need to be replaced. The lighting throughout the house is poor and the house is generally pretty dark inside in the evening.

Owner's Response: Dear Prospective Renters; Living in Maryland and renting a home in Vermont can be a challenge at times. The home in this instance had been unoccupied for months. To add to the problem my cleaning girls were not at the top of their game and neglected to deep clean. My dad built our home on Lake Rescue 35 years ago. This spot has been heaven on earth to my family and friend. We want it to be that way for those we rent out to. I am committed to renting out our home and to make it a wonderful stay for all those who rent. I have new cleaning people who I hope will take my home's best interest to heart. Sincerely, Nancy O'Brien
