About Bernie Bolton
I reside in CT and have always wanted to live on a lake. Finding this house in Ludlow - an area I love! - was pure fate! I have done home exchanges in the past and really enjoyed the experience. I love sharing what brings me joy and I trust people to treat it as though it were their own. I have 2 grown children and Golden Retriever rescue named Gracie. Pets are generally not allowed, but trained, well-behaved pets will be considered since I know they are part of your family, too.
Bernie Bolton purchased this House in 2015
Why Bernie Bolton chose Ludlow
I fell in love with Ludlow 20 years ago and fall in love all over again each time I drive into town. It has everything anyone could want -- interesting shops featuring talented artists; world-class golf; sensational skiing; beautiful lakes, streams and waterfalls; friendly people and breathtaking views all around. Burlington is a good day trip and Manchester, Woodstock, Rutland, Bennington & Lake George are all within an hour's drive. But honestly? You won't leave Ludlow! :)
What makes this House unique
I've just recently purchased this home and want to create a "cottage" experience. I do not want a home to be featured on 'Cribs' -- I want a home where you walk in and feel at peace. Like perhaps you've stepped back in time a bit to a simpler life at a slower pace. Yes, there is wifi and cable TV and Bose surround sound & a dishwasher. If you need them. But there are also kayaks and fishing poles and jigsaw puzzles and a squeaky screen door. So I encourage you to unplug and enjoy life's simple pleasures.

Beautiful Vermont lake house
Very comfortable and well supplied with everything for beds, bath, kitchen and fun. Beautiful and conveniently located to enjoy Ludlow and other picturesque Southern Vermont villages. Owner extremely responsive.
Best part is the wide porch looking out over Lake Pauline.
This vacation home was wonderful! It is on the best part of Lake Pauline, right where it opens into deep lake and very close to the red bridge. We paddled are kayaks over to the sugarhouse more than once for maple syrup ice cream, and spent more than one day at the red bridge swimming in Lake Rescue and playing in the rocky shallows on the Lake Pauline side. The beds are comfortable, the couches are very comfortable, the deck is big and shady all afternoon, and we wished we could stay even longer.
Our family loves making memories at this house, and Bernie is the best!
The entire process was great, and we really enjoy renting from Bernie.
Porch over the lake is great
We have a wonderful time at this house. The porch is heavenly.
It was so nice to have you back again this year -- twice!! :)
I'm glad you enjoy the porch -- it's definitely one of my favorite spots! I'll look forward to hosting you again in a few weeks...
Relaxing at the lake.
The house and its location are perfect for our needs.
It sounds cliché, but the Ludlow area truly has something for everyone! The winters boast exceptional skiing at Okemo with Killington just 25 minutes away, snowmobiling, skating & snow shoeing. Fall is fabulous for scenic drives as each turn offers a thrilling view of mountains, fields and forests as you follow the winding Black Rock River. In summer you can spend the day antiquing, wandering through farmers' markets, boating, fishing, hiking or trying your skill at the Jackson Gore Adventure Park on the zip line or alpine slides.
