About the property

4 bedroom, 2 full baths, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 11

Welcome! Our house is a Classic Vermont Farmhouse with an attached carriage barn located on Lake Rescue in Ludlow, Vermont. Our home is characterized by the original features like exposed timber beams, hardwood flooring, soap stone counter tops, and vintage/ antique farmhouse decor.

This home accommodates 11 and has 4 bedrooms, a living area with a futon pull-out couch and 2.5 baths.

Home is located on Route 100 just outside of the town of Ludlow within a 5 min drive to Jackson Gore / Okemo Mtn and a 20 min drive to Killington ski areas. The views of the mountains are spectacular and the location is wonderful all year round. We have a large country yard and just steps off the back of the yard is Lake Rescue. Our property shares a common two level deck/dock/ and boat storage area with neighboring houses in a separate lot just a short walk off the back of the yard.

Main Floor Layout: The main floor has a “Family Room” with cathedral ceiling, exposed beams, a wood stove, and large windows. It includes the kitchen which has original soap stone counter tops, hardwood cabinets, a center island with a large gas stove. The dining area has a large french country table which can accommodate ten. Next to the table is an unusual wood stove that opens to become a fireplace creating a cozy atmosphere and crackling fire. There is also a seating area with a couch and chair to allow for snuggling into a great book or breaking in a deck of cards with family and friends. This openness of this room makes it possible for everyone to be included in family or group discussion or activities.

The main floor also has a TV room with a futon couch, chair, bookshelves, wood stove, and TV (Cable included). A half bath is located off the TV room with a full size washer and dryer.(linens and towels provided)

The master bedroom is also located on the main floor it has a Queen size four poster bed, an armoire, vintage decor, and a full bath with jetted tub.

The “Family Room” has a door that opens onto a large deck, where you will find a grill and outside dinner table and umbrella. There is a large counry yard with multiple seating areas and a tire swing.

On the upper level there are country 3 bedrooms and a full bath. Bedrooms= One King, One Double, One with A Double and Twin. The upstairs bath has the original claw foot tub with country classic surround shower, and a bidet.

The nearby village of Ludlow, Vermont 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 the Weston Playhouse

In summer, the fishing, swimming, and boating are excellent and it is a perfect place to spend a family vacation. Just steps off the backyard is a multi tier deck/dock area with picnic table and boat storage. The lake has a gradual sandy bottom and is perfect for young kids playing in the water. The dock is a perfect place to tie up your boat, jump into the water, kayak or fish. We have two Kayaks, and a paddle boat for guest use for fabulous scenic trips on the lake.

In the fall, the foliage is spectacular and autumn is the perfect time to enjoy the foliage while boating on Lake Rescue or driving around the valley.

In winter, the house is also ideal for outdoor activities. The house is about 1 mile from Jackson Gore/Okemo. Lake Rescue is approximately one and one-half miles long and offers numerous activities in addition to nearby downhill skiing. (Ice fishing, Ice skating, sledding, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing)

Great location but needs some work

  • 3 of 5

We had a great time this holiday weeeknd at the farmhouse with our friends and family. It was located only minutes from Okemo and downtown which made it extremely convenient in terms of location. When we initially arrived the driveway was plowed however the walkway was not shoveled so it made it very difficult to get inside the house and we had to shovel ourselves a path to get in. The driveway was very icy for remainder of the weekend and there was no salt left which made for unsafe conditions. There was also a great deal of snow on the roof left from the last storm that continued to melt and fall onto the entrance throughout our stay. We found this to be extremely dangerous at times based on the amount of snow on the roof. We also found that the house had not been cleaned well and had a lot of white dog hair throughout the house. We were grateful to have a pet friendly place, however the cleaning service should do a better job in cleaning up in between guests. Also we were left with strict instructions on how to leave the house that we didn't mind - but one of the rules required us to clean and empty the dishwasher without any dishwasher detergent or soap left in the house. Overall we had a great stay while in Ludlow, however the house can definitely use some more attention to detail and better cleaning to make everyone's stay that much more enjoyable.

The farmhouse was wonderful!! Great location, close to town and Okemo mountain

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great weekend staying at this VT farmhouse. It was clean comfortable and very close to town and all the nearby attractions. We spent the weekend skiing at Okemo mountain and snowshoeing around the beautiful lake. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in the Ludlow area.

Beautiful Relaxing Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. We were up in the middle of winter, and it was important to be close to the mountain. We were only about 5 minutes from the base of Okemo and it was easy for us to get into the downtown area. We brought our dog and she loved running around outside and the house was safe for her too. The house was cozy, the kitchen was the perfect size, and the bedrooms were beautiful. We were very satisfied with our stay and we would absolutely rent again.

Great place for annual family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Loved the farmhouse. Quiet but really close to town and many interesting places to visit and the lake was a short walk off the property for those who wanted to fish. Very spacious, there was plenty of room for all family members. Would definitely book this rental again.

vt vacation

  • 3 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at the farmhouse there was plenty of spacious room for 9 plus our family pet.The home was full of farmhouse charms. The home is located on a main road but that did affect our time enjoying the large yard and evening fire pit or sitting on the deck. The lake is a very short stroll front the back of the carriage house . We spent our day enjoying the kayaks that are available to use.There was a few things that the home does need to be address my biggest issue was all the dirty bathrooms that needed a good cleaning . Two of the bedrooms had sheets on the that were covered in animal hair and had to be washed before we slept in them.All 4 couches were very uncomfortable and had not been vacuumed in awhile under cushion were dirty.I certainly understand its a pet friendly place but a good cleaning would solve that. The kitchen was large with lots of room to cook only thing you need going there is plastic containers with lids for leftover and a working can opener there 2 there but they were broken and the gas grill has a issue with not all burners working. We still used it all week just took a little bit longer.

Owner's Response: Thank you for posting this review. We will address the cleaning issues with our contracted cleaning company. Thanks for letting us know about the grill too we will have our handyman fix it or replace it. If you had let us know earlier it would have been corrected on the spot. Thanks for everything.
