Lake Rescue Chalet-6-BR Lake & Ski House w/Hot Tub
2500 Sqft Vacation Home hosted by Lisa
16 Guests . 6 Bedrooms . 2 Bathrooms


Lake Rescue Chalet is a large, cozy vacation rental home steps from Lake Rescue in southern Vermont, and just minutes from Okemo and Killington ski resorts. The house is 4 hours from NYC or 3 hours from Boston.

This comfortable six-bedroom chalet has three boats on a private dock, 2 huge outdoor decks, 2 satellite large-screen TVs, indoor and outdoor games, and an outdoor hot tub. With six bedrooms, two kitchens and two living/dining areas, there’s plenty of room for groups of up to 16.

Bring the family or a group of friends! The two large decks will accommodate everyone with room to spare. The private dock on Lake Rescue, a 2-minute walk down a dirt road, has two kayaks and a canoe available for your use. In the yard, you can enjoy volleyball, horseshoes, corn hole, a hammock, even a fire pit!

The house is just 3 miles from Okemo’s Jackson Gore area and 12 miles from Killington’s Skyeship. Other nearby ski mountains include Pico, Magic Mountain and Stratton.

Lake Rescue Chalet sleeps 16 people on two levels that each feature full open-floor-plan living areas – including a kitchen/living/dining room – and three bedrooms apiece! Upstairs and down are connected by a custom crafted wood-and-wrought-iron spiral staircase (with a child-safety gate at the top), and each level has its own bathroom, fireplace and large-screen smart TV. It's a terrific home for families and friends who want to spend time together but also cherish their privacy. They relax in the hot tub, barbecue on the huge front deck, watch the great blue herons that live just over the ridge, play volleyball in the yard, roast marshmallows over the fire pit or just nap in a hammock in the woods.

The only thing that beats taking a canoe out on a misty summer morning is screaming down a ski slope after a fresh snowfall.

Four-Season Fun

WINTER: The snow is thick and the winters are cold in winter in Vermont-- perfect for skiing, snowboarding, sledding, ice skating, snowmobiling or just building a snowman. There are nine ski areas within 40 miles.

SPRING: Flowers burst into a jumble of audacious color in May, and its reputation as Mud Season because of the snowmelt means you can escape to Vermont for bargain prices.

SUMMER: Enjoy the Black River and 200-acre Lake Rescue, where we have a private dock with three boats – a canoe and two kayaks – a two-minute walk from the front door. There is boating, fishing, swimming and lounging on the dock in colorful Adirondack chairs. Several golf courses are nearby, as well as hiking trails, bike riding, historic sites, scenic New England towns to explore, shopping and more.

FALL: Fall foliage season in Vermont means spectacular hiking, shopping, and breathtaking leaf peeping drives on scenic Vermont 100.
