Description from owner

Luxury Home on Lake Rescue

Our 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 designed 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 home has 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. Three bedrooms have queen beds, and one large bedroom with built-in beds. The house can comfortably sleep 6. to 8 depending upon sleeping arrangements. We do limit occupancy to keep the house in excellent condition for future guests.

The house has three levels; main, upper and lower.

Main Level

The main level has a “Great Room” with cathedral ceiling, exposed beams, a fireplace, and large windows overlooking the lake. The kitchen has cherry cabinets, a large granite counter, stainless appliances, and an island which seats five. The dining room has a large cherry table. A half bath is on the main level. The kitchen and Great Room open to a deck with an outdoor grill, picnic table and lovely views of the lake.

Upper Level

The upper level contains the master bedroom (with master bath), a loft, and a large bedroom with built-in beds, bathroom and a TV.

The master bedroom overlooks the lake. The master bath has a walk-in shower and a large soaking tub. All bathrooms have granite counters and travertine tile.

The loft overlooks the Great Room and has wonderful views of the lake, a sofa and TV and is a great place to escape to read.

There is a full size washer and dryer on both the upper and lower levels.

Lower Level

The lower level has two bedrooms with queen beds, a full bathroom with walk-in shower, and a family room with a gas fireplace and which directly faces the lake.

There is a second laundry room with a full size washer and dryer as well as a second refrigerator on the lower level.

Lake Rescue

Lake Rescue is a beautiful small, (usually) quiet and peaceful lake. It is about 1 mile long in the shape of a “figure 8”. Our house is located in the quiet eastern side of the “Round Pond” section at the northern end. Although power boats and water skiing are allowed, kayaks and fishermen predominate.

Wide stairs from the lower lake-side deck provide easy access to the lake where there is a generally sandy bottom. Multiple kayaks (both adult and youth) and a canoe are available to explore Lake Rescue.

Surrounding Area

The nearby village of Ludlow 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 Weston Playhouse and also the beautiful Weston Priory. Manchester, is well known for its many designer factory outlets and Woodstock, Vermont for picture post-card beauty and typical New England charm.

Okemo has many activities including a beautiful 18-hole Okemo Valley Golf course, mountain biking, outdoor concerts, a “mountain coaster”, zip lines, a climbing wall, and miniature golf.

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.

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.

Nearby Okemo Valley Cross Country Ski Center has extensive groomed trails and when conditions are right, cross country skiing or ice skating on Lake Rescue is wonderful.

Snowmobilers can utilize the lakes and the nearby access to all the interconnecting trails that Vermont offers (one-fourth mile from Lake Rescue).

“Wonderful Stay”

Reviewed 20 Jun 2016

My family and month-in-law stayed her last summer and I am fianlly getting a chance to say what a great time we had and what a beautiful house you have! We have 3 kids and in the beginning it was "I want to go here... I want to go there" but in the end the only thing we did was climb the tower at the mountain and go to a local swimming hole we were told about... otherwise the rest of the time was spent at the lake house with kayaking, canoeing and swimming. Games at night were always a highlight!! We truely relaxed. Thanks to the owners for giving us a great vacation!

Owner's reply: Sharon We are happy you enjoyed your stay. We always think its great when our guests enjoy the house and lake as much as we do. Although there are numerous sites and activities around Vermont, we rarely want to leave beautiful Lake Rescue
