Charming waterfront getaway w/ yard, firepit, dock, kayaks - close to skiing!

Whether you're visiting to have some fun out on Lake Rescue in the summer or to hit the slopes at Okemo Mountain in winter, this spacious, four-bedroom home by the water has room for up to 10 guests, a well-equipped, modern kitchen, an outdoor firepit, and a private dock.

A fantastic, get-away-from-it-all destination, this warm and welcoming home is located just a little over four miles north of downtown Ludlow for convenient shopping and dining. While you'll likely to be spending a lot of your time around and on the adjacent lake, this secluded getaway is also just four-and-half-miles from Okemo Mountain for year-round fun and adventure. Not only can you enjoy skiing and tubing in winter, Okemo also offers mountain biking, golfing, and the thrilling Timber Ripper Mountain Coaster throughout the year.

Ideal for a large family or a few couples, this home offers free WiFi and two cable TVs. Play some Ping-Pong in the family room or head outside to the backyard and roast s'mores at the firepit under the stars. Guests are also welcome to take one of the kayaks or the canoe out on the water for a relaxing paddle around the lake or an afternoon of fishing for bass, trout, and catfish. At the end of the day, head inside and warm up by the wood-burning fireplace.

You'll feel right at home at this beautiful, lakeside vacation rental. Make your reservation today!

This house provided everything necessary for a wonderful vacation, from relaxing to kayaking.

This home was the last house nestled in the woods down a dirt drive just off route 100. Drove a BMW sedan during dry fall weather and it was fine on the dirt drive. Snowy, icy weather would have definitely required 4wd. We rented this particular house because of its location on the lake and the fact that the owner provided a canoe and kayaks (which we used everyday.) The kitchen and living areas with the stone fireplace (plenty of wood provided) were great. We had a great 3 days here. If you need provisions, we'd suggest driving into Woodstock. Nice cafe for lunch (Cafe Vert) and the Woodstock Farmer's Market is a must.
To be honest, we had a few surprises. The house seems to be in the process of renovation so there were areas that needed to be completed. Some bare wires, some unpainted surfaces, and nonexistent smoke alarms or fire extinguisher in the kitchen/fireplace area seem to us a problem for a rental. There was no renter's "book" to refer to as we've had in some other rental homes, but it wasn't really a problem because Vacasa provided all the info about the rental online or through the App. The frying pans were "very used" and we would have liked some dish towels in the kitchen but maybe that's nitpicking! The water has a strong taste and smell so we'd suggest bringing bottled water to drink. Maybe the owner would consider a filter of some sort.
Family photos around the home show a great family (looks like 4 boys? - same as my husband's family.) All told, we have good memories of Vermont and our stay.
Manager response:
Thank you for choosing Vacasa and sharing your review with us. The owners still plan on removing the shower in the upstairs bedroom and will hopefully have this wrapped up soon so the finishing work can be done and the tools removed. The water in the area does have a particular taste to it, but it is safe to drink. We apologize if housekeeping missed stocking the kitchen towels and will remind them to get these in the future. We hope to see you again!

Stayed at this most beautiful home for our honeymoon with some friends and family. The house had everything we needed and more …. plus a spectacular view of Rescue lake. Everything was neat and clean and we enjoyed every minute of our stay.

We had 2 families, 5 kids. There was plenty of room for all of us to eat, cook, play, sit by the fire, loved the pool table and ping pong table.... It was such a lovely visit, and will definitely return!

We loved our stay at this lake house. The location is perfect, the house is beautiful and there is plenty of room to spread out. I especially like that the whole bottom floor can easily be a kid zone with the pool table, ping pong, and video games. We hope to stay at this house again.

This house was perfect - relaxing lake and fire pit and close to woodstock!

Beautifully set on a lake, with a magnificent view of its wooded banks. A very restful place, Also a good starting point for excursions in any direction, allowing visitors to get to know Vermont better.

Thank you!

We had a great long weekend at this Lake Rescue home. We have vacationed several times on this lake over the years and know the area very well. We love the proximity to Jackson Gore for skiing, and LOVE having the lake right in front of us. This is the perfect location for year-round fun. The house is very well appointed and cozy. The decor is quite nice and we loved having a working fireplace to use. There were 4 adults and 3 teenagers staying in the house and we never felt cramped. The beds in all the rooms were quite comfortable and the bedding looked relatively new and clean! The kids loved the downstairs room with the ping-pong table, and the large kitchen table made for great dinners and conversation area. We didn't want to leave! In fact, one of the days we actually opted out of skiing to sleep in a bit, cook a great breakfast and then play outside all day on the lake ice fishing and ice skating. While the home is undergoing some minor repair work due to some water damage, we would absolutely stay here again. We're looking forward to returning soon!

This house is cozy, spacious, and very convenient. Great for large groups and there is a ping pong table! The supermarket and ski resort is less than 10 minutes away which was perfect! The view is amazing even in the winter time and the fireplace is a good choice for an additional heat source or to just sit around and watch T.V. The house was very clean and the local managers were very nice and responded very quick to any questions. Would come again & highly recommend!
