Owner info

Year Purchased: 1969

About the owner: This is a family home that we have enjoyed since 1968. We have loved spending winters skiing here and summers swimming in the lake. It is often used for family reunions with members coming from as far away as California. We have just begun sharing the wonderful peace of our home with renters. I am a retired school teacher who lives nearby and manages the property for my family.

Why the Owner Chose Wilmington:
The proximity to the metropolitan areas in the northeast make for easy access to this property. The local community of Wilmington, Vermont is friendly and has a wide variety of activities and amenities. Lake Raponda is a charming and peaceful spot. A place to enjoy nature, a truly Vermont experience. Ducks, Otters, Beavers, Kingfishers, Loons and Great Blue Herons are among the wildlife viewed from the lakeside porch. There is a variety of outdoor activities right outside the door, including swimming, hiking and ice skating in winter.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The living room of the cabin offers an antique Estey organ and an upright piano that you can enjoy playing and singing along to. Our cabin on the lake, is the place we come to in order to unplug from all the stresses of life. We have had family reunions here for 40 years, and a three weddings too! Our favorite pastime is just sitting on the porch and watching all the activity on the lake after a nice brisk hike along the nearby trails. In the evening we enjoy being together as a family playing a variety of board games and puzzles, which are available at the cabin.
