LAKEFRONT LOG CABIN, PERFECT ALL SEASON VACATION HOME

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.

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

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.

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.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the cottage for just over a month. It felt very homey and comfortable; the community is kind and inviting. Great access to town for shopping and dining; very close for winter fun including cross country skiing and hiking (a lot that we did right in the neighborhood). Also less than 20 min to My Snow. Other ski areas not too far either. Plenty of room for family and friends; great open layout with lots of bedrooms. Owner/ manager easy to work with and responds quickly to any questions or concerns. All around a great stay--- hated to leave.

Perfect Getaway From NYC

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I wanted to take a trip up to New England and found this perfect cabin to stay in! It's less than 4 hours away from NYC and yet you feel like you're in another world. We built a fire right next to the lake and enjoyed the scenic views all afternoon. If you want true New England vacation, I'd recommend this cabin to anyone! Can't wait to go back this winter, spring, and summer!

Quiet and quaint

  • 5 of 5
This cabin was nothing but wonderful and I highly recommend staying here for a long, nature filled weekend! The cabin was clean and accommodating... provided everything week needed. It was very authentic, had a lovely view of the lake, fire pit, large back porch and plenty of room for a large family. It was within a few minutes of a great grocery store. I had no complaints about our weekend!

Travel back to a peaceful time

  • 5 of 5
We first stayed at the cabin in the summer of 2010 and returned in 2011! The 1924 cabin is very charming, neat and tidy, and homey. It feels like you are traveling back in time. We practically lived on the front porch with shade and breezes from the lake below. Being at the end of the lake was peaceful and private. We enjoyed using the canoe and taking a swim from the dock. We walked the roads in the area and found old homesteads and great views. The location was perfect for getting to a farm stand and into Wilmington, Brattleboro and beyond. We call it Lake RaypondAhhhhhhh.

Excellent Vermont summer vacation time

  • 5 of 5
The first time renting this cabin but not the first time on lake Raponda. We love the area and come back every year. The cabin easily accommodate 4 adults and 3 children. We loved the canoe and deck. Great fishing, hiking. There is a little beach area in walking distance from the cabin.

House on Lake Raponda

  • 3 of 5
The house was perfect for the 7 of us. The main problem was the "waterfront." We're swimmers and getting into and out of the lake was a problem (lots of large rocks to stumble over and 8" of muck on the bottom). A better site for boating. Owner was very accomodating.

Owner's Response: This is a mountain lake and does have a mud floor. We have added sand to help swimmers walk into the lake! :)
