About Phyllis Beveridge

Our family vacation home for many years. But now our adult children and their families are scattered across the USA and unable to come often. We enjoy sharing our house with others.

Phyllis Beveridge purchased this house in 1984

Why Phyllis Beveridge chose Wilmington

A great place to just hang out, walk to lake, use of canoe. Nice local walking and access to bike-able trails. Or use as a base for hiking, skiing, golfing and visiting the valley as well as day trips to nearby small towns, museums and the outlet stores in Manchester. Or for driving to enjoy the beauty of the area, typical architecture and covered bridges.

What makes this house unique

The charm of an A-frame, great kitchen. Walk to lake. Be sure to buy some of the locally made maple syrup from the Wheeler farm roadside stand - the best maple syrup in the world!

Charming winter experience

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this very charming home. The character of the house added to our winter ski weekend! It was spacious, clean and had a fully equipped kitchen. We enjoyed a fun game of scrabble by the awesome fireplace after a long day of skiing!!!

Cozy woodland retreat!

  • 4 of 5

I will save you from reading further if you have mobility issues. Exterior deck stairs and interior very narrow spiral staircases.That said, we LOVED this home. Spacious main floor with eclectic and comfortable seating for a lot of people! Lovely front and back deck with lots of outdoor furniture.3 bedrooms on ground floor with full bath and play area. 2 bedrooms on 3rd floor with lovely views.Plenty of room to spread out in small groups and a beautiful dining table that seats 10! The center fireplace is fantastic and heats evenly and easily. Sitting in the open space with the fire was sublime. The lake is a short walk and absolutely beautiful (canoes and kayaks ). Lots of great hiking nearby.Phyllis (owner) could not have been more informative, helpful and nice.

Charming Green Mountains Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Perfect get away in the Green Mountains of Vermont.

The house is what you'd expect, it's not super modern, but it's comfortable, charming and has the basics of what you need from a rental. Amazing lofted A frame ceiling, fire pit was a real treat, and kitchen was well equipped. I'd say the house was more geared towards a winter ski lodge than a summer get away. Saying that we had a great time with our two young boys over a week around Labor Day—they loved adventuring around the woodland property and canoeing on the lake.

Because of it's elevation, note that it's definitely a lot cooler than the surrounding area. It struggled to get above 70 during the week we were there in August/September, but then that was a pleasant relief from the mugginess of the city.

Owner's Response: Thanks. The week of your stay was cooler than average for late August - early September. More typically September into early October days are mid 70"s or warmer, with cool nights .... light sweater or jacket, but bring extra layer in case it dips into 50's at night. Our favorite time of year. Leaves are beginning to change colors and the sky is an intense blue.

Old but Charming

  • 4 of 5

Property is as advertised and the owner was a pleasure to work with. The A-Frame home was perfect for our weekend. Beds were comfortable and in good shape. Kitchen has been updated and was a good size to cook for a dozen people. Lots of great deck space. Only negative, and its a minor one, is that some of the furnishings (especially outdoors) were old and need maintenance or replacing.

Owner's Response: We appreciate Tim’s comments. We were there the weekend after his stay to check things out. A very rainy spring and June this year --- which delayed our usual spring cleaning of the decks and outside teak furniture. This has been done. The outside furniture in need of repair or broken - a wicker set and a wooden rocker - were extra pieces that were stored in shed pending our taking them to town dump. Our handyman has a new assistant who did not know this. To be be sure this doesn’t happen again, we will label any thing in storage shed that is not for use. Inside, we have started a refinshing project to spruce up our older pieces. Thanks Tim. Phyllis

Great ski getaway!!!

Wonderful, spacious home with an incredible owner/host. We had a great time skiing at Mount Snow and were made to feel so at home that it truly was a vacation like no other. We hope to ski even more next season :)

Thanks, Phyllis for sharing your incredible ski home!
