Wilmington Cabin Rental Photos and Description
Cabin, 4 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
Lakefront log home, a perfect spot to enjoy the fall foliage. Nestled in the woods this charming cabin was built in 1924 but is modernized to make it an all season retreat. Peace and quiet abound in this pristine environment, a few minutes to Wilmington, and the Mount Snow resort area. The Wine and Harvest Festival, and local Brewfest are all popular attractions. This is the perfect spot to take in the gorgeous fall foliage of Vermont. The view from the deck overlooking the lake is spectacular, take a short walk, hike (along the miles of town trails) or drive along the back road foliage tours. A Canoe is available for enjoying the lake. Lake Raponda is four miles from downtown Wilmington, a quaint New England village with a wide variety of restaurants, shops, galleries and lively nightlife. There is a nearby flea market every weekend through mid October. Or just relax and watch the wildlife on the lake from the porch, the lakeside campfire or sit by the fire in the stone fireplace. This home is suitable for couples, families and weekenders. Get away in time and space.
Don't miss the fall foliage that has made Vermont famous.
This house is also available for seasonal winter rentals.

About Chris Simpson
This is a family home that we have enjoyed since 1968. We have loved spending winters skiing here and summers swimming in the lake. It is often used for family reunions with members coming from as far away as California.
We have just begun sharing the wonderful peace of our home with renters. I am a retired school teacher who lives nearby and manages the property for my family.
Chris Simpson purchased this cabin in 1969
Why Chris Simpson chose Wilmington
The proximity to the metropolitan areas in the northeast make for easy access to this property.
The local community of Wilmington, Vermont is friendly and has a wide variety of activities and amenities. Lake Raponda is a charming and peaceful spot. A place to enjoy nature, a truly Vermont experience. Ducks, Otters, Beavers, Kingfishers, Loons and Great Blue Herons are among the wildlife viewed from the lakeside porch. There is a variety of outdoor activities right outside the door, including swimming, hiking and ice skating in winter.
What makes this cabin unique
The living room of the cabin offers an antique Estey organ and an upright piano that you can enjoy playing and singing along to. Our cabin on the lake, is the place we come to in order to unplug from all the stresses of life. We have had family reunions here for 40 years, and a three weddings too!
Our favorite pastime is just sitting on the porch and watching all the activity on the lake after a nice brisk hike along the nearby trails.
In the evening we enjoy being together as a family playing a variety of board games and puzzles, which are available at the cabin.
