Wilmington Chalet Rental Photos and Description

- 3 bedrooms plus loft, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 12, 2200 sq ft

This new lakefront log cabin is available the rental season! Minutes away from Mount Snow and Stratton, winter activities include: skiing, ice skating and ice fishing. Also 2 miles from the center of Wilmington.

The property has 160 ft of water frontage on Spruce Lake. Fish for brook trout in this privately stocked lake. Take our 2 canoes out on the lake for a fishing or site-seeing trip. Swim from our private beach or canoe to a shared beach at the end of the lake. Fall asleep to the sound of the brook running just outside the cabin!

This is the perfect family vacation. The lake does not allow motor boats and the lake frontage has a shallow entry.

Wildlife abound!: The lake, brook and surrounding woods provide a perfect wildlife habitat.

This year we've seen: moose, black bear, deer, heron, beaver, otter, geese, ducks. The family of ducks ask to be fed at least twice a day. Moose tracks have been seen on our beach. And a pair of black bear are well known to the area (keep the trash cans lids latched!).

The brook has brook trout, frogs, turtles and crayfish. And of course the lake is loaded with perch, brook trout, rock bass, and mud puppies.

In the surrounding woods the kids will also enjoy catching salamanders, newts, and garter snakes.

Waterfront Fire Pit ! We have a burn pit on our private beach. We provide the firewood; you provide the marshmallows!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear new family,



Hi! We are the kids of the previous family. You will notice there is a baby duck swimming around by herself. Her mother and four siblings (you will see these swimming around too) abandoned her. Well, her name is Petunla and she likes company. If you sit in the water she will swim around you. If you have any food, she would love to take it, but feed her sparingly. She needs to learn to find food by herself.





Thank you,



previos family

We are a family of 4 who love water and winter activities. So what could be better than a waterfront chalet 10 miles from Mount Snow!

Tim Ryan purchased this chalet in 2006

We built this cedar log home as a 4 season retreat. The lake provides: fishing, swimming, canoeing, and ice skating.

And great skiing and golf is within 10 miles of the house.

The smell of cedar greets you at the door.

The house has geothermal heat and CENTRAL AIR CONDITIONING! No hot muggy summer nights here.

The lake has been privately stocked with brook trout and rainbow trout for over 20 years

WONDERFUL ANY SEASON!!!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a fantastic visit over the winter that we had to come back in the summer. The ice skating was so much fun with my children. They spent the entire time outside sledding, skating, roasting marshmellows and building snow caves. When we went back in the summer, it was like a whole new vacation, between, the swimming, canoeing, and expolring in the woods. We took our bikes out for a ride into town as well. I love the house!! It feels like a luxury to be in a space that is so clean and comfortable. Having the movies and games for kids was great. Thank you for a wonderful vacation. We are going to be back for sure.

GREAT FAMILY VACATION ON THE LAKE!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Lake House. The house was beautiful, clean, and organized. The lake was quiet, serene, and perfect for swimming and canoeing. We ranged in age from 2 years old to 70 years old and everyone was happy with their stay. We enjoyed the fire pit several nights and we had some great ping pong tournaments in the basement. My 2 year old enjoyed the toys that were hanging out in the loft. We cooked most meals at the house and found the kitchen and grill easy to use. We are already planning our next stay! Thank you so much!

VERY PEACEFUL AREA AND A BEAUTIFUL VIEW

  • 5 of 5
This was our 6th time here and we love it. We visit once in the fall and winter. The owner is easy and quick to communicate with and always very welcoming of us. The house itself is beautiful on the inside and you can't beat the view of the lake from sitting inside or on the back deck. It is minutes from a little coffee shop, town where you can walk around to restaurants and shops, and not too far from mini golfing and Mt. Snow for those who enjoy winter activities. It is very nice and quiet and there is a private road so you don't hear any cars or loud noise as in the city. The house comes equipped with everything-and there is a Shaw's market right up the road to get your groceries. We've always gone with friends however this is a great place for families too. We always feel right at home from the moment we arrive until we leave. We love it and it makes for a great long weekend stay! Always a fun experience, and always sad to go home!

FALL COMFORT

  • 5 of 5
Fall at Spruce Lake is so exciting... there's a ton of things to do and plenty of time to relax on top of this... as if days were made longer by the fresh and crisp air perfumed with leaves, pine and firewood!

The cabin is very comfortable and welcoming with its open areas and all-wood construction. More than everything you need is included.

Owners are quick to answer any questions and want to make sure we have a pleasant stay.

The only downside of our stay... was that we had to leave! :)

NOT A SECLUDED CABIN

  • 3 of 5
Since most reviews seem overwhelmingly positive, this focuses on some things that appear to have been left out. The reason there are so many pictures of the cabin from the lake is that they are not taken from the lake but from the road. The picture from the deck shows only the view to the right. To the left are several houses with a road running directly in front of them. It is a well traveled road and you can clearly see (and hear) the cars and trucks as they pass by. You can watch their reflection in the water. Needless to say, this detracts from the tranquility. There is also a very large house next door. Nothing separates you from your view of each other. Despite the proximity, (a stone's throw away) the neighbors will not wave hello or even acknowledge your presence. They will, however, watch you through binoculars from inside the house. No kidding! We took to keeping the blinds down on that side of the house.
You may have read an earlier review about feeding the ducks. Well, there is a consequence to all that feeding. The entire front of the property is completely covered in duck and goose droppings. We could not walk outside without shoes on. But I guess this would only be a problem if you were visiting in the summer. Inside, the cabin is pretty much as pictured. It is clean and well kept although I have never been to a rental where you had to make your own beds upon arrival. Kind of a drag after a long day of traveling. Although there is a basement, it is completely unusable. The cement floor was covered with dirt and the walls were covered with insulation. Construction materials were piled up in half of the space. The furniture that was there was for some reason upside down on top of each other. The access to outside was nailed shut with planks. We only had 5 in our group so not so much of a problem for us, but could be if you were with a larger group wanting to spread out. Also, the televisions are both small box sets so larger groups should not plan to watch the big game or a movie all together. The dining room table fits 6 comfortably, but the chairs at the island are not good for eating as the island hits a grown adult at chest level when seated. Again, not a deal breaker, just some things I wish I had known before renting.
Wilmington is a charming, quintessential Vermont town and Molly Stark State Park (five minutes away) is worth a visit.

Owner's Response: Not much of this is within the control of the owner. But I will add information where it might help.

• The website map clearly shows a road on the opposite side of the lake. Most people have found our home to be tranquil and relaxing, we certainly do.
• This is the only house that is available to rent, with lake access on Spruce Lake. We do not deem it appropriate to include pictures of neighboring homes on the website. Upon speaking to the neighbors, they deny the allegations made – not sure where to go with this one. I will add that half of the summer bookings are multi-year, repeat clients.
• While I have no control over the Vermont wildlife, I can - and do – provide rakes and shovels. You just need to decide if you want to use them. That said, the geese have been a problem this year, and we are currently working on a solution with the other owners.
• Not making the beds is standard for the area. Making the beds for 12 when 5 are staying at the house would be a waste of resources (i.e. excessive laundry). Also, we cannot be left to guess which beds will be used.
• The basement is not included as usable space quoted on the website. It holds the laundry area, ping-pong table and electronic dart board. The rest of the space is storage/overflow. There is access thru a side door.
• In addition to the kitchen table (seating 6), the porch table seats 6, a “kids” table next to the kitchen table has room enough for 4, and the island seats 4.
• The 2 TVs are 21 inch and include built-in DVD and VCR players. Basic cable and assorted DVDs and VCRs are also provided (but are by no means the focal point of this experience).

Obviously we cannot please everyone all of the time. This is our family’s vacation home - not a resort.
