Ludlow House Rental Photos and Description

3 + Bedrooms - 3.5 Baths + 1 add'l large room with pull out sofa and pvt bath

Our new (built in 2008) luxury 3,500 SF timberframe home is located directly on Lake Rescue and close to Okemo and Killington ski areas. The views of the lake and mountains are spectacular and the location is wonderful all year round.

Our Bensonwood timeberfame house (also known as a post and beam house) is characterized by beautiful Douglas Fir beams, towering cathedral ceilings, and a wide open main floor. The Great Room is open to the Kitchen and Dining Room. This openness makes it possible for everyone to be included in family or group discussion or activities, no matter where they are on the main level.

The home has 3 bedrooms, all with queen beds, plus a very large additional private room with a bathroom and pull-out sofa. The house can comfortably sleep 6. Although the house can accomodate additional people we prefer to limit the occupancy so as to keep the house in excellent condition for future guests.

The house has three levels; main, upper and lower. The main level has a magnificent “Great Room” with cathedral ceiling, many exposed beams, a fireplace, and large windows overlooking the lake. The kitchen has beautiful cherry cabinets, a large gorgeous granite counter, new stainless appliances, and breakfast counter which seats five. The dining room has a large cherry table.. The Great Room opens onto a beautiful deck overlooking the lake, which has stairs down to a patio and the lake.

On the upper level the master bedroom overlooks the lake. The master bath is decorated with travertine tile and has a walk-in shower. The shower has both a rain shower head and wall-mounted shower head with many different spray options. In addition we have a large “soaking tub” for relaxation. All of the bathrooms have granite countertops and travertine tile.

The loft overlooks the Great Room and has wonderful views of the lake. The loft has a sofa and TV and is a great place to escape to read or watch TV. Also the upper level has a large (24’ x 24’) “game room” with a cathedral ceiling, full bath, and a pull-out sofa andbathroom. This can serve as room where kids gather to play or watch TV. We have full laundry facilities on both the upper and lower levels.

On the lower level, the “family room”, with large windows looks directly out onto the lake. A door opens onto a spectacular patio which also overlooks the lake. The room has a French entry door, gas fireplace, a sofa, and LCD TV. The lower level also has two bedrooms. One bedroom on the lower floor also looks directly onto the lake while the other has a lake view. There is a beautiful bath with a large walk-in shower and granite counters on the lower floor

The lower level also has a second laundry room with a full size washer-dryer, as well as a second refrigerator. (This laundry room is in addition to the washer-dryer we have on the upper level.)

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 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.

In summer, the fishing, swimming, and boating are excellent and it is a perfect place to spend a family vacation. There are multiple decks where you can relax in the sun any time of day. Wide stairs provide easy access to the lake where there is a generally sandy bottom for children to wade. The dock is a perfect place to tie up your boat, jump into the water, or fish (the lake is stocked with fish - perch, bass, and trout abound). A canoe is available for you to explore all the nooks and crannies of Lake Rescue.

The beautiful and recently renovated and expanded 18-hole Okemo Valley/Fox Run Golf course is nearby. An outdoor grill and picnic table are available for you to enjoy a wonderful cookout with spectacular views of the lake. And you can eat outdoors on the deck with a spectacular view. Other nearby activities include driving and hiking Okemo Mountain and riding the mountain slide at Pico.

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. And autumn is the perfect time to enjoy the foliage while canoeing around Lake Rescue.

In winter, the house is ideal for outdoor activities. The house is about three miles from Okemo and 12 miles from Killington’s Northeast chairlift. Lake Rescue is approximately one and one-half miles long and offers numerous activities in addition to nearby downhill skiing.

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 Okimo 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. Flood lights directed onto the lake allow you to enjoy lake activities after dark. Snowmobilers can utilize the lakes and the nearby access to all the interconnecting ski trails that Vermont offers (one-fourth mile from Lake Rescue). Once on the trails, you can even ride into Canada.

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

This is quite honestly one of the best vacation rental homes we have ever stayed in. Our family of five, with kids ages 14, 11, and 8, absolutely loved it. The house is comfortable, spacious, and has all of the amenities you could ever need. There are many different areas both inside and outside the house to sit and relax.

The lake was the highlight of the stay for all of us. There were enough kayaks for our entire family plus a canoe. The lake was manageable and fun to explore. Jumping off the dock and swimming were great. At night, we roasted marshmallows over the fire pit.

We sincerely hope to visit again. Our vacation week could not have been better!

Impeccable Lakehouse!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third summer staying in this beautiful home. It is located directly on Lake Rescue which provides for wonderful swimming, canoeing and kayaking. It's a gorgeous relaxing area. Yet, it's close enough to delicious restaurants if you can pull yourself away from this beautifully appointed home. The owners keep the home very clean and updated with all the amenities. They are easy to deal with and timely in their responses. We highly recommend this home and look forward to returning next summer.

Lake Rescue Beauty

  • 5 of 5

House and location was amazing. Kitchen and house in general was well stocked. Everything you could want or need is provided. Great to have the three kayaks and the canoe to use. My family and I had a great time. Could not ask for more. I would highly recommend this house if you are considering visiting the Okemo area.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing. Our young children had a great time. The place was super comfortable and very clean, the kitchen very well stocked (compared to many homes we've rented before), and all very modern yet cozy. We appreciated the many kayaks including the kid's kayaks. Even as a family of 6 we were all able to go out together. Owner was also very responsive. We'll definitely be back.

Lake Rescue

  • 5 of 5

The house and surrounding area are gorgeous. We stayed there over Memorial Day weekend. The house is luxurious and spacious but still felt cozy. The lake was amazing. We loved this place and hope to return soon.
