Our new (built in 2008) 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 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 Great Room is open to the Kitchen and Dining Room. This openness makes it possible for everyone to be included in family or group discussion or activities, no matter where they are on the main level.
This is a very sapciaous and beautiful home, with plenty of space for everyone to gather together in the Great Room and dining area as well as other locations for children and adults to read or get togethre for games.
The home has 4 bedrooms. Three bedrooms have queen beds, and one bedroom with private bath has built in twin beds and is ideal for children. In most cases the house can comfortably sleep 8. We do limit the occupancy to 8 so as to keep the house in excellent condition for future guests.
The house has three levels; main, upper and lower.
The main level has a magnificent “Great Room” with cathedral ceiling, many exposed beams, a fireplace, and large windows overlooking the lake. The kitchen has beautiful cherry cabinets, a large gorgeous granite counter, new stainless appliances, and breakfast counter which seats five. The dining room has a large cherry table.. The Great Room opens onto a beautiful deck overlooking the lake, which has stairs down to a patio and the lake.
On the upper level the master bedroom overlooks the lake. The master bath has two sinks, is decorated with travertine tile and has a walk-in shower and a large "soaking tub". The shower has both a rain shower head and wall-mounted shower head with many different spray options. All of the 3-1/2 bathrooms have granite countertops and travertine tile.
The loft overlooks the Great Room and has wonderful views of the lake. The loft has a sofa and TV and is a great place to escape to read or watch TV. Also the upper level has a large (24’ x 24’) bedroom with built in twin beds, a cathedral ceiling, full bath (with tub). Children love this room and it is a nice place for them to gather towatch TV or play games. a
We have full laundry facilities on both the upper and lower levels.
The lower level ( above grade) has two bedrooms (with queen beds), a bathroom with a walk-in shower, a spacious "TV / family room" overlooking the lake with gas freplace, a sliding door for easy access to the patio and lake, a second washer and dryer, and a second referigerator
One of the bedrooms looks out directly onto the lake. The other bedroom has a lake view.
The “TV / family room”, with a gas firreplace and large windows looks directly onto the lake. A sliding door opens onto a spectacular patio which also overlooks the lake. The room has a French entry door, gas fireplace, a sofa, and LCD TV.
The lower level also has a second laundry room with a full size washer-dryer, as well as a second refrigerator. (This laundry room is in addition to the washer-dryer we have on the upper level.)
Ludlow and surrounding area
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 also the beautiful Weston Priory. Manchester, Vermont is well known for its many designer factory outlets and Woodstock, Vermont for picture post-card beauty and typical New England charm.
In summer, the fishing, swimming, and boating are excellent and it is a perfect place to spend a family vacation. There are multiple decks where you can relax in the sun any time of day. Wide stairs provide easy access to the lake where there is a generally sandy bottom for children to wade. The dock is a perfect place to tie up your boat, jump into the water, or fish (the lake is stocked with fish - perch, bass, and trout abound). A canoe and multiple kayaks are available for you to explore all the nooks and crannies of Lake Rescue.
The beautiful and 18-hole Okemo Valley/Fox Run Golf course is nearby. An outdoor grill and picnic table are available for you to enjoy a wonderful cookout with spectacular views of the lake. Other nearby activities include driving and hiking Okemo Mountain (www.Okemo.com) and their moutain activities
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. And autumn is the perfect time to enjoy the foliage while canoeing around Lake Rescue.
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. Lake Rescue is approximately one and one-half miles long and offers numerous activities in addition to nearby downhill skiing.
Lake Rescue usually has excellent conditions for cross-country skiing and the scenery is always beautiful. A full loop of the lake is approximately four miles. If you tire of exploring Lake Rescue, Echo Lake and Amherst Lake are easy to reach via interconnecting trails. Nearby Okimo Valley/Fox Run Cross Country Ski Center has extensive groomed trails for classical or skating skiers.
Ice fisherman love the lakes, and when the conditions are right, the ice skating is also good. Flood lights directed onto the lake allow you to enjoy lake activities after dark. Snowmobilers can utilize the lakes and the nearby access to all the interconnecting ski trails that Vermont offers (one-fourth mile from Lake Rescue). Once on the trails, you can even ride into Canada.
