About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

This spacious, but cozy, 3 bedroom, 4 bath home has a split level floor plan that lends itself to spectacular water and mountain views from every room including the 3 upper level bedrooms all with sliders to the balcony. The open-concept lower level is a wonderful kitchen/dining/living area with big windows towards the lake, a brick fireplace, and convenient, walk-out access to the stone patio. Especially nice is the 2 car attached garage equipped with a spectacular game room for all ages with a mudroom area for all your gear. Ideally located on a private lot less than 10 minutes to Okemo and 25 minutes to Killington, this is a sensational property to enjoy with family and friends during any season!

Owners provide two kayaks, a paddle board, a canoe, and life jackets for your use.

About Dana Montanez

We are a tight knit family of five that puts a premium on family time. As full-time teachers, and our family super-busy with working, coaching , sports, school, and homework, we wanted to find a home we could grow into, in a community that gives us "small town," with outdoor activities and life-long sporting opportunities. Our kids are 12, 10, and 8 and our beloved Nala-girl is just 4!

Summer Trip to the Lake

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this property with 6 adults, 2 toddlers, and 2 infants. It was a very rainy week, so having the game room was a huge plus. You can't get closer to the lake and having access to the canoe, 2 kayaks, and paddle board made exploring the lake very easy. From the shore, the water is very shallow and gradually deepens. This was fun and safe for the little ones. The town of Ludlow is less than 10 minutes away for all your grocery needs as well as dining. The owners were a pleasure to work with and responded quickly to any questions. I imagine this is a great ski rental as well with its proximity to Okemo and Killington. The only trouble we had was the weather.

The property is a piece of paradise.

  • 5 of 5

The location was convenient to some outdoor fun at Okemo. We loved the property and lake. Owners were wonderful checking in to be sure everything was initially great and continued to be during our stay. Owners were immediately responsive with any questions that we had. We are already talking about returning next year. Thank you Dana! :)

Loved it!

  • 4 of 5

This property is perfect in so many ways, sitting right on the water, with 2 kayaks, a canoe, and even a paddleboard. There was something for all of us, from age 10 to 71!

The fishing was perfect for our 2 grandsons---so much fun! The inside of the house is beautifully laid out with sliding glass doors in each of the 3 bedrooms that opens out onto a 2nd floor balcony. The house was impeccable. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that there is some road noise at times. All in all, it didn't spoil our vacation at all!

Two for two

  • 5 of 5

This was our second summer and our family of seven had another marvelous week creating more beautiful memories. We were again grateful for Dana's attention to detail and also the on-call handyman who responded immediately to a minor problem.

We are already talking about next summer and would definitely choose this again!

For starters, this property comes with a half-acre island to explore during all seasons. Our kids LOVE to strengthen their confidence and independence kayaking to the island and going on adventure expeditions. Absolutely NO FIRES are allowed on island, but sleepovers are the best!

During the summer months enjoy fishing, swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, and canoeing right out your back door. The waterfront is sandy with a gradual incline which is terrific for young children and the end of the dock is only 3-4 feet deep. If you have a boat, there is a boat launch across the lake and you may of course use the dock. Besides kicking-back and relaxing, close to the house will find the Jackson Gore Adventure Zone filled with summer and winter activities, the Okemo Valley Golf Course, and local shopping and antiquing. Within a short drive is the shopping mecca in Manchester, the Appalachian Trail Head, the Long Trail Brewery, and the Weston Playhouse. You may also enjoy visiting Calvin Coolidge State park or a plethora of other Vermont State parks for camping and hiking and don't forget a local favorite, a trip to Buttermilk Falls!

In the winter enjoy skiing and snowboarding at world class Okemo, Jackson Gore and Killington resorts as well as miles of groomed cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails. After the lake freezes you have access to more of the former as well as direct VAST access for your snowmobile. Ice fishing and skating are also popular winter activities on Lake Rescue.

The fall foliage season is spectacular if you are looking for a weekend away and some of the best months to visit Vermont are the late ski and early spring seasons.
