If anywhere oozes literal charm, it's Wilmington

Nestled in Deerfield Valley on the edge of the Green Mountains, Wilmington features both a picturesque village, a stunning, rural countryside, and easy access to some of the region's best ski resorts. Whether you're looking to shop for locally made goods, experience the dining scene downtown, or simply take in the stunning natural beauty, it's unlikely you'll ever tire of the area's welcoming vibe and charming hospitality. With a Wilmington vacation rental to call your own, you might start planning your next visit before you've even left.

Luxuriously putting the ski into apres-ski

Wilmington is a charming village full of shopping, galleries, and bars -- perfect for apres-ski. Purists know you can't apres-ski without actual skiing, but luckily, there's plenty of that, too. Visitors post-ski season can still enjoy the natural scenery, thanks to endless hiking and biking trails, plus campgrounds. If you tire of the outdoors, never fear. A Wilmington vacation rental awaits... or better yet, a selection of local spas. Annual events include the Deerfield Valley Blueberry Festival, the Vermont Wine and Harvest Festival, and an annual Turnip Festival, proving the old adage true. There's something for everyone, even turnip lovers.

From the 3S's (skiing, shopping, spa-ing) to the 3R's

Situated on the edge of the Green Mountain and Finger Lakes National Forests, the top reason travelers flock to the area is pretty obvious: the great outdoors! From skiing to kayaking to hiking, the surrounding mountains and lakes offer hours of activities. But the town of Wilmington isn't short on cultural offerings, including art galleries, artisinal boutiques, and The Art of Humor gallery, dedicated to the cartoonist Skip Morrow. Families will also love the nearby petting zoo at Adams Farm, while the adults of the group can slip away to enjoy the local wineries.

It's every sleepy New England dream town, rolled into one

Winter is the obvious time to head north to Wilmington, but you really can't go wrong any time of year. Expect some snow from October through April or even May, but the warm breezes of spring and summer will quickly welcome in calmer days. Swimming, kayaking, and boating are all popular actitives when the temps finally climb, but, like much of New England, you'll find the locals most proud of the regional beauty in fall. Pack your best flannels for your Wilmington vacation rental, but please note: pumpkin spice (probably) not included.

Lovers of the great outdoors, we've found your true home

Thanks to its close proximity to the Green Mountain and Finger Lakes National Forests, as well as the Harriman Reservoir, Wilmington is surrounded on all sides by expansive natural beauty. It's easy to see what makes New England so popular among lovers of the great outdoors when some of the country's best skiing is just a short drive away. While there are plenty of organized activities available, true moments of zen can be found watching the sunrise or sunset from town, birdwatching on one of the hiking trails, or spotting wild deer slipping through the forest.
