Ludlow / Okemo Mountain Area Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom, 2 full baths, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 11

Welcome! Our house is a Classic Vermont Farmhouse with an attached carriage barn located on Lake Rescue in Ludlow, Vermont. Our home is characterized by the original features like exposed timber beams, hardwood flooring, soap stone counter tops, and vintage/ antique farmhouse decor.

This home accommodates 11 and has 4 bedrooms, a living area with a futon pull-out couch and 2.5 baths.

Home is located on Route 100 just outside of the town of Ludlow within a 5 min drive to Jackson Gore / Okemo Mtn and a 20 min drive to Killington ski areas. The views of the mountains are spectacular and the location is wonderful all year round. We have a large country yard and just steps off the back of the yard is Lake Rescue. Our property shares a common two level deck/dock/ and boat storage area with neighboring houses in a separate lot just a short walk off the back of the yard.

Main Floor Layout: The main floor has a “Family Room” with cathedral ceiling, exposed beams, a wood stove, and large windows. It includes the kitchen which has original soap stone counter tops, hardwood cabinets, a center island with a large gas stove. The dining area has a large french country table which can accommodate ten. Next to the table is an unusual wood stove that opens to become a fireplace creating a cozy atmosphere and crackling fire. There is also a seating area with a couch and chair to allow for snuggling into a great book or breaking in a deck of cards with family and friends. This openness of this room makes it possible for everyone to be included in family or group discussion or activities.

The main floor also has a TV room with a futon couch, chair, bookshelves, wood stove, and TV (Cable included). A half bath is located off the TV room with a full size washer and dryer.(linens and towels provided)

The master bedroom is also located on the main floor it has a Queen size four poster bed, an armoire, vintage decor, and a full bath with jetted tub.

The “Family Room” has a door that opens onto a large deck, where you will find a grill and outside dinner table and umbrella. There is a large counry yard with multiple seating areas and a tire swing.

On the upper level there are country 3 bedrooms and a full bath. Bedrooms= One King, One Double, One with A Double and Twin. The upstairs bath has the original claw foot tub with country classic surround shower, and a bidet.

The nearby village of Ludlow, Vermont contains many fine restaurants, 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 the Weston Playhouse

In summer, the fishing, swimming, and boating are excellent and it is a perfect place to spend a family vacation. Just steps off the backyard is a multi tier deck/dock area with picnic table and boat storage. The lake has a gradual sandy bottom and is perfect for young kids playing in the water. The dock is a perfect place to tie up your boat, jump into the water, kayak or fish. We have two Kayaks, and a paddle boat for guest use for fabulous scenic trips on the lake.

In the fall, the foliage is spectacular and autumn is the perfect time to enjoy the foliage while boating on Lake Rescue or driving around the valley.

In winter, the house is also ideal for outdoor activities. The house is about 1 mile from Jackson Gore/Okemo. Lake Rescue is approximately one and one-half miles long and offers numerous activities in addition to nearby downhill skiing. (Ice fishing, Ice skating, sledding, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing)

Quaint, Comfy, and Restful

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting this lovely farmhouse with our friends from college, after my family had come up to the area for years prior, renting a house on Red Bridge Road. At first we were hesitant about the house's location on Route 100, but that quickly became resolved by the peace and quietude of the area, as well as the excellent dock and picnic space that the house shared on Lake Rescue. There were many days that the excellence of the lake shore wooed us away from doing anything else. We also immensely enjoyed the kayaks and paddle boat throughout the week we spent there. The fire pit made for many a cozy evening.

The week we spent was a very much needed moment of relaxation for all of us, and we found the rental rate we split for this house for the week was incredibly reasonable. We look forward to returning next year!

would stay again AND recommend!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I had the most perfect weekend away at Cathy's house. The house provided everything we could ask for, from ample sleeping space to a firepit to lake access. I can't think of a single complaint or thing I would change. The three days spent at the house were somehow both fun and peaceful. We all left feeling relaxed and happy. The house was clean and essentials like toilet paper and towels were easy to find. Cathy herself was responsive and helpful, even calling the day of our arrival to check in. I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone looking for a peaceful lakeside getaway. I can see where it would be a perfect family vacation spot, too. The lake is super close to the house so you can easily run back to use the bathroom or grab a snack, and the two kayaks and paddleboat make for a lot of fun. There's also a ton of yard space to spread out and play games. An excellent stay!

Nice Property

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful surroundings and a great lake with amenities. Rooms are well kept. Two issues: the kitchen needs upgrading and the disposal area in the back carriage had a bad smell and was not properly cleaned and maintained.

Best Ludlow Farmhouse - GREAT Place for a Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Cathy and Tim did everything to make our stay enjoyable. I hold weekend retreats for my company, Got Clicks, and it's the perfect setting for an intimate gathering. Mixing business brainstorming with fun on the lake literally steps from the house, we had plenty of room to work on internet marketing ideas and enjoying the Vermont Country Store and Weston Playhouse literally 20 minutes away. The Okemo Alpine Slide is only a couple of miles up the road and wrapping everything up at Harry's Restaurant was a definite treat. Great location - close to everything. This classic Vermont farmhouse has all the warmth of Grandma's house right down to the tire swing in the front yard. Highly recommend this home.
