Lovely Vacation Retreat

Bedrooms 4
Space 3,360 sq ft
Property type chalet
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

Chalet, 4 Bedrooms + Rec/Guest room (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This house gives you an amazing feeling of being on top of the world. We've tried to keep the house simple yet aesthetically pleasing.

You can find lots to do in the area, or just stay and enjoy the view. In the winter there's a great sledding hill and--if it's good and cold--a pond to slide on. If you like to cook, the kitchen is completely equipped. The house is set up so that there are private areas and public areas. You can get away, or congregate. It's the kind of house where you'll have a wonderful vacation whether you ski or just relax and enjoy the beauty of our place.

Each bedroom is private. There's one with a king-size bed, and 2 bedrooms have queens. The children's room has two twin beds, toys, books. There's a futon in the rec room, which is on a separate floor and has it's own bathroom and TV.

We've owned and loved this house since the sixties, and we hope you will find this house an idyllic place to rent and enjoy.

About Lyn Bertles

We are a family of musicians and writers, and we think the house shows it. There's a good electric piano, there are music stands, games (I'm a Scrabble fan) and plenty of privacy for quiet reading. This is the perfect house for those who like to stay at home while others are skiing, as the house is such a pleasure. Food shopping and a big drugstore are ten minutes away, yet the privacy is perfection.

Lyn Bertles purchased this chalet in 1965

Why Lyn Bertles chose Wilmington

We first built this house in 1965, and enlarged and modernized it in '95. We chose to come here because we love Vermont, and Wilmington is within reach of both Boston and New York, as it's just over the Mass. border. There's plenty to do here, but it's not all frantic traffic and street density as it is on Cape Cod or in the Hampton's.

What makes this chalet unique

There's something about standing on our deck and looking at the view that is totally relaxing. Then there's that walk to the pond and the pleasure of watching children take sleds from our woodshed and slide down our hill. When the shopping urge gets you there are all the big outlets in Manchester, VT, one hour away. Of course for skiers there's Mount Snow or Stratton--or you can just snow shoe in our woods.

Beautiful Get Away Retreat!!!! **Highly Recommend**

  • 5 of 5

Nice secluded spot yet close enough to downtown Wilmington. Large yard, extra room in the basement next to the futon room. The perfect amount of rustic and modern style. Large deck for socializing while enjoying a view. My friends and I had a great time and would recommend this VT get away.

Amazing Winter Escape!

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed this house for the past 3 winter seasons. My family as well as our close friends (4 adults, 6 kids) cannot say enough about this property. With nice large bedrooms and amazing views it has it all! We sled down the large back hill, ice skate on the pond, hike through the woods and enjoy the peace and quiet of the many acres it includes. Our kids look forward to this vacation every year and this home couldn't be more perfect for a large group. The owners are so accommodating and go out of their way to make your stay wonderful. The kitchen is very well stocked and the fireplace makes it so warm and inviting. We do go skiing at Stratton which is about a 40 minute drive and snow tubing at Mount Snow which is only 20 minutes away. Simply put-this home a little peace of heaven in the mountains=)

Christmas in Vermont

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful Christmas vacation we spent at this house! Having been to Vermont on numerous occasions but never in December (and a few days in January), we were a little apprehensive spending two weeks at this location. It turned out to one of our best vacations ever! The owner was great to work with, giving us not only Christmas week, but allowing us to spend New Year's Eve and a few days after. The home is spacious, well heated, and as promised...the hill behind the house (which was covered with snow) gave our 10 yr. old twin grandsons and their friend several days of exciting sledding and fort building. There is a caretaker to the property only a phone call away to answer questions. We were 7 people for the 2 weeks and an additional 3 people for 5 of the days and there was plenty of room. Just a great time in the city of Wilmington which we've come to love almost as much as our home in Texas!
