Our house on Lake Raponda has been in my family since 1963. My parent's owned the house then , and now I own it with my husband. Our children spent every summer here at the lake, reading, swimming, kayaking and being together with their cousins and grandparents. Our house is a family home. We take very good care of it and it has the feeling a a home that is loved and well cared for.
Annette Lieber purchased this house in 1963
Our property is quiet and serene and a great place for a family vacation or a time to get away and enjoy being surrounded by the beauty of Vermont.
We had a wonderful week in August here with our sons (8 and 12). The house was comfortable and spacious, the kitchen worked well and the collection of board games was perfect for a family vacation! Outdoors was also well equipped -- our kids loved the the dock and kayaks, and the tethered dock to swim out to, and we loved lounging in the chairs in the sunshine and playing badminton.
In town we ate at the outdoor burger place, visited Bartleby's books often, and went to the mini-golf and bowling place one evening. We also loved the ability to pay for day use of the Hotel's pool/hot tub and game room in Wilmington -- great rainy day activity!
My only suggestion/clarification for future visitors would be to make sure you find out early in the week which days the dump is open, as it is not often, and trash disposal at the end is your responsibility.
