Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Ludlow

One of the top spots on Lake Rescue, this rustic home features 4BR's and 2.5 Baths. Open living room/all season porch, and big deck with expansive views of the lake and mountain. Fully equipped kitchen with eat-in dining area. Two bedrooms downstairs, each with a queen bed. The 'master' bed looks directly out at the lake - the perfect way to wake up. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, each with twin beds (a total of 5). The deck has a grill, and picnic table paired with the best view you'll find. Less than 5mins to Okemo mtn and golf course, and under 20 to Killington - the house is situated perfectly for all seasons. In the summer months, it's a short walk to the Green Mountain Sugar house for a maple creamee (a must try!), and even shorter stroll down the lawn to a vast waterfront/beach area. In the winter - the wood stove keeps the house nice and toasty, and with views of the mountain you can make sure the snowcats are grooming all night!

Ideal renter - someone looking for a no frills, authentic lakeside VT rental with mountain access 5mins away. If you're looking for the Four Seasons, this probably isn't for you :)

A 9% rooms tax has been added to the rental fee per the State of Vermont.

Important notes:

- The owner's have a home next door to this house, and the dock area is shared. The groomed waterfront area is well over 100ft, and there is plenty of room should both parties be up at the same time.

- The fire pit/motor boat down at the lake is not allowed to be used by renters. Breaking this rule will result in a forfeited deposit.

Very Good! 4/5 -

Waterfront Home / Ski House on Lake Rescue (5mins from Okemo)
average rating of 4.0 based on 6 reviews

It was as described. However, I really did not know rustic until we stayed there.

  • 3 of 5

At first glance, we were not too impressed with the property. The house is very old and it had a very musty odor that permeated the living room furniture and downstairs small bathroom. The rest of the house was quite cozy. Beds were comfortable. I am a clean addict and brought my own products and after coming in and smelling the musty odor I went to work on cleaning bathrooms and kitchen. Honestly, it was really clean. Window were old and did not stay open. I had to prop them open and hold them open with cups and glasses. It however improved the musty odor.

Now for the good stuff,! Beautiful landscaped yard with an incredible view of the lake. My family had a ball. A nice deck and a nice dock. The owner left a paddle board and canoe for our use. We brought our own kayaks and paddle boards as well. So, there were plenty for all,of my family. We brought floats and the water was warm and so clean you can see straight to the bottom. The children went fishing right off the dock and caught several fish each. The TV did no get many stations so we just left it off and played cards and games each night after dinner. A real old fashion vacation with the family. My 10 year old grandson declared " this old place is really cozy after all"!

We enjoyed nearby Bromley Mt and spent the day there doing Ropes course and sliding down the mountain . A great vacation was had by all.

Comfy cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was just as described. It was warm, comfortable and cozy. Spencer provided great customer service and was quick to rerun our deposit. If I were to provide helpful feedback I would suggest something to make the house easier to locate at night. We couldn't find a house number and our GPS took us to the neighbor's house.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The location was great, right on the lake and near Ludlow. The owners got back to me right away when I had any questions. The house itself was a little odd, fully carpeted including the bathrooms and had a musty smell but it worked out well for a few days away and we didn't spend much time in the house anyway.

Clean and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The house was exactly as described. Location was great , very near town of Ludlow with a beautiful expansive lawn leading to dock and lake. My sons loved the paddleboard and kayaks and even took them out when it poured rain one of the days. It had one of the best equipped kitchens I've ever had in a rental house. i would give 5 stars except picture window in queen downstairs bedroom was quite dirty which took from the lake view and there was a moderately bad smell from one of the downstairs bathrooms (which may be from a faulty toilet ring). If these were fixed, it would be a 5 star house ,given it's very reasonable rental rate.

Great Family retreat for any season

  • 4 of 5

Great location to easily get to Killington and minutes from Okemo. This is an older house with a lot of character and very clean and comfortable. Plenty of room - 5 twin beds and 2 queen. Our family consisted of 3 adults and an 18, 16, 12, and 10 year old boys. We went to enjoy the skiing but would definitely like to also come in the summer to enjoy the lake.

Great place in Vermont Ski Country

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely little (but big in terms on number it can accommodate) cottage on a lake and only 5mins from Okemo Mountain. My family of 7 (2 adults, 2 older teens and 3 pre-teens) spent a very enjoyable 3 days there between Christmas and New Year. The (many) beds were comfortable, the cottage warm and cosy and the amenities very amenable. And the owner is very prompt to respond and pleasant to deal with. We will be back next year.
