Lake Location: Our charming, updated house is located directly on Lake Rescue w/ a large yard and 67 feet of lakefront with access to kayaking, canoeing and swimming. The village of Ludlow, Vermont contains many fine shops and restaurants, from candlelight dining to steak and seafood houses, Chinese or Thai food, a Subway shop and great pizza.

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.

Summer & Fall: In summer, it is the perfect place to spend a family vacation. There is fishing, swimming, kayaking and boating right in the back yard. You can relax on the deck or down at the lake in the sun any time of day. The yard is large and slopes down to the lake where the water is shallow and safe for children to wade. The lake is stocked with fish - perch, bass, and trout. Two kayaks and a canoe are available for you to explore Lake Rescue. 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. For the golf enthusiast, the beautiful and recently renovated and expanded 18-hole Okemo Valley/Fox Run Golf course is 2 miles away.

Winter/Ski: The world class Okemo Mountain & Jackson Gore Resort is 3 miles away, and the Killington and Pico Resort is 18 miles for skiing, snowboarding and snow tubing. 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 Okemo 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. Snowmobiles can utilize the lakes and the nearby access to all the interconnecting ski trails that Vermont offers (one-fourth mile from Lake Rescue). In addition, our sloped yard is a perfect place for smaller children to sled.

Great weekend get away

  • 5 of 5

Tidy home on lakefront was the perfect location for our family get way. Well appointed with canoe, kayaks, life jackets (for kids and adults), gas grill, and fire pit.

Owner was responsive and thorough. Couldn't have asked for better.

Also, home was truly pet free (pretty important to my animal allergy ridden family.) Thanks for a great weekend my inlaws will always remember.

great weekend at the lake

  • 5 of 5

Great house, everything as described.

Pans could have been a bit newer but otherwise great.

You can hear the street a little and the location is not really secluded but it's definitely a beautiful house with a nice garden and an awesome lake. Great fun to take out the kayaks and canoes for paddling or even fishing. I got a 10" yellow perch :-)

Perfect Vermont Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I just got home from a wonderfully relaxing week on the lake in mid-August. We had absolutely no problems the entire time we were there. Communications in advanced were so clear and timely, that I never once had to reach out to the owners until I got home... and that was to thank them for a wonderful week.

We had great weather, good fishing, and a variety of wonderful local hikes.

The house is not fancy, but it has everything you need... and hard to beat the value for the price. I highly recommend staying here if you want a nice family getaway on a lake.

Nice stay

  • 4 of 5

Thanks for an enjoyable ski vacation. House was pleasantly more beautiful, comfortable and well kept than the pictures show. Excellent communication. Two minor things were that the home was freezing when we arrived and that we couldn't get the brand new coffee maker to work even with the owner's prompt responses to our complaints. Hopefully it'll work for the next guests. Lovely home. Would recommend to others and we will keep in mind the next time we go to Okemo.

Owner's Response: Our apologies for to Regina and her party! We had just recently replaced our furnace and unfortunately for our guests, the new fuel company failed to make our scheduled drop of gas for the house. It did take a few hours to get the truck in and we have taken steps to make sure this never happens again-nothing worse than no heat in the winter!

Wonderful house for ski vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a short ski vacation. We loved the location of it as it is so close to the slopes, downtown and other amenities like the resort with sledding slope. We also loved the fact that once we were done skiing, we didn't have to deal with the traffic that unfortunately accumulates from all the cars trying to go back downtown. The house is very well maintained, very comfortable and everything worked well. There are also a whole bunch of games and movies available and we truly enjoyed those too. The owners are wonderful and very responsive.Overall we had an outstanding experience and we will certainly want to come back.

A Breath of Fresh Air

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the lake house for a week at the end of June. Our main purpose was to relax and was the perfect place for that. Everything was just as described and the cottage was extremely clean. It had all the things we needed to make our stay convenient and comfortable. We were especially pleased with the owners' willingness to answer any questions and to communicate with us. We were never made to feel as though we were bothering them. They were always accessible and provided several numbers to contact them should the need arise.

The cottage was easy to find and was directly off route 100. There were only two of us , but you could easily fit 8 people. It was fully equipped with everything you would need except for your own food. Although you could hear cars when sitting on the porch, it was not a problem or a nuisance.The area was lovely, especially all the tall pine trees that left the air smelling so clean and fresh. The lake and the use of the kayaks and water floats were a nice perk. The lake was quiet with only an occasional fishing boat. We loved being able to take a daily paddle and had plenty of lake to explore. The neighbors were kind, friendly and quiet. We were also able to take walks around the lake on the side roads with very little traffic. The homes were spectacular!

There are many nice day trips and things nearby to explore. We enjoyed Woodstock, Weston, and Manchester. Ludlow has some good restaurants. The steaks at Sam's were great. The nearby sugar shack has Vermont syrup, coffee and maple ice cream to enjoy.

It is best to do most of your food shopping before you arrive. The grocery store Shaw's is good for basics, but there isn't much compared to larger cities or at home. There is a Shaw's shopper's card at the cottage so you can get the sale items. It was another little thoughtful thing left for renter's convenience.

Overall, I would highly recommend this place. It would certainly be great for skiers as it it super close to Okemo Mountain and other ski areas.

We hope we will be lucky enough to return to this cottage/ home in the future.
