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!

Cozy Vermont get a way
We really enjoyed this cozy home and the main floor layout. Stairs were interesting especially with a small child and at times difficult to get up and down. Beds were all a little hard but overall room setups were perfect for what we needed. Kitchen had everything we needed and fireplace was so enjoyable to have going while hanging out playing games. Location was good and we had lots of laughs and new memories made.
Great place for a family vacation
Three generations enjoyed a president’s week vacation. The youngest enjoyed playing with toys on the open ground level playroom.The main level and central fireplace provided a comfortable place for all to gather for meals and post slope relaxation.
Great for a ski weekend getaway!
The house was perfect for 8 of us to stay on a long ski weekend. Phyllis was very helpful and accomodating with our schedule for arriving and leaving. Would gladly stay again!
Good stay overall, just a very long list of instructions to open and close house.
Happy house worked for your group.
For those considering renting house - we shut off water when house is not occupied. ARRVAL: renter needs to open two valves for water and turn the switches for water pump and heater to ON. DEPARTURE: no close up needed if someone arriving that day, other than carrying out trash and recycles, shutting windows and locking up (check out is 10:30 AM). If no one is arriving, renters can stay as long as they like and cleaner comes the next day. And renter needs to shut water valves and switch water pump and heater to OFF, be extra sure windows shut, doors locked, lights off, etc. In winter, a few more things to prevent freeze up of pipes should power/heat go off: open faucets a bit to drain pipes, shut damper on fireplace and reset heat to 55 degrees. We do provide a check list so renters know what needs to be done. FYI: in cold weather our handyman/plower turns heat up so house will be warm on arrival. Any questions, please contact us. Phyllis
A-frame with open fireplace
Really enjoyed our stay in Wilmington at this cozy house. The fireplace is the centerpiece of the room and provides a great environment. 20min from mt snow. Would recommend for family’s and groups of friends alike.
Great New Year's Weekend!
We had a great New Year's Ski Weekend in this lovely home. It has great Vermont style and the house was super clean! The fireplace situated in the center is so unique and enjoyable with plenty of space for two families to spread out and play games and socialize. The beds were very comfortable and the bedrooms a good size. The sled tracks the kids found outside the house kept them busy for hours in very cold temperatures! They had so much fun and us mom's even gave them a spin! We hope to come back in the summer so we can use the outside space and visit the lake nearby. Less then a 1/2 hour to Mount Snow and 10 minutes to the lovely town of Wilmington. The owner was great and provided tons of information. Highly recommend this place!
