This property offers a rental where you can enjoy boating, skiing, antiquing, shopping the outlets plus many more possibilities.
We have 100 feet on the shore of Lake Rescue and ten minutes from Okemo Ski Mountain.
This rental clearly belongs to a lovely family home on a great location of the lake, but you should be acutely aware that it is indeed only the lower-portion of a family's larger vacation home that you are renting. While the lake-side of this vacation rental is terrific (nice views, great dock, large deck), the rental feels no different than a basement when inside. The constantly running dehumidifiers (valiantly fighting the below-ground odors), mismatched and overly-cluttered furniture, after-thought kitchen and the stairs leading up to the locked first floor are constant reminders that you are indeed in a subordinate-level environment. If you expect this and know that it is the bottom/basement-level-only of a wonderful house, you will enjoy yourself undoubtedly.
Since our stay some of the description has changed here (we had a conversation about expectations with the very-nice owner) for the better and it now spells out more clearly what you are getting into, but still missing is the idea that when it rains, you and your family will be eating on the floor because the only "dining room" is a large plastic table on the deck.
Let me be very clear, this is a wonderful family vacation home. It's hard to imagine anyone finding issue with it...but from our experience, this truly wonderful family home should remain a wonderful family home. She's just not quite ready for renting out to strangers with expectations that can range so widely. There's clearly too much history of fantastic times in it for this family to think anything needs to change within it. But it needs some more objective attention before it submits itself to the use of those with expectations when money is involved.
The pictures posted for this property do not do this location justice. You are right on the water! There are two decks plus the dock. The picturesque views are non stop. A bald eagle landed on the small island across from this cottage every day. Swimming, boating and fishing every day. We had a fantastic stay! Tom, at the neighboring Tyson Village Store provided additional kayak and paddle board rentals (at a reasonable rate). He dropped off and picked up the rentals. So convenient. We had a great meal at Sam's Steakhouse. A few other restaurants looked very good as well, but we had most meals at the cottage. There is a very large and clean gas grill provided. The Buttermilk falls made for a great afternoon swimming in the basins and waterfalls. Jim, the property owner was very accommodating and helpful from the start. I would definitely rent here again.
Located on Lake Rescue, two miles from Okemo Mountain Resort (winter) and Okemo Valley Golf Club (summer). 15 minutes from Killington Ski Resort and Long Trail Brewery. 30 minutes from Manchester outlet shopping. Skiing, snowboarding, snow tubing, sleigh rides, ice skating, ice fishing, hiking, fall foliage, apple picking, wineries, horseback riding, golf, swimming, water skiing, tubing, fishing, canoeing, alpine slides, and mini golf. A true all season gem of a location!
