Area - 563 acres

Temperatures: Surface - 70F; 85 feet 45 F

Principal fishery: Salmon, Lake Trout, Small Mouth Bass, Chain Pickerel

Wilson Lake is located west of Wilton village. Its main inlet and outlet, Wilson Stream, enters the northwest side of the lake and exits the eastern tip meandering east into the Sandy River. Water quality in Wilson Lake is suitable for cold-water game fish. Salmonid spawning and nursery habitat is available in the inlet. A small native salmon population utilizes this habitat to provide a limited number of wild fish, which are supplemented with periodic stockings to maintain a fishery. Lake trout naturally reproduce using the rocky shoals to spawn and maintain a productive fishery. Salmonid growth is good despite competition from warm water fish species. The lake is occasionally stocked with brook trout to supplement a small native population. Wilson lake is accessible via a public launch site located just south of downtown Wilton. The lake is open to fishing under general law in both the summer and the winter season. Fishes: Landlocked salmon, Minnows, Lake Trout (togue) Golden shiner, Brook trout Fallfish (chub), Rainbow smelt, White sucker, Smallmouth bass, Hornpout (bullhead), White perch, Redbreast sunfish, Yellow perch, Pumpkinseed sunfish, Chain Pickerel, American eel, Landlocked alewife. Wildlife is abundant in and around the lake and it's watershed. Loons return each year to raise their young.

Well behaved pets are welcome. Pets cannot be left alone in the Guest Cottage. Please pick up after your pets. Pet fees $100.00 per pet, maximum of 2 pets.

Why Jane & Peter Franchetti chose Wilton

As a former Bed & Breakfast, from about the 1940's-1970's, Stonecroft was well regarded by everyone who stayed here. For years before purchasing Stonecroft my family would kayak by the property and remark about its beauty and unique qualities. It was only a dream then, but now we are the fortunate owners of this remarkable piece of paradise and we feel grateful to extend a warm welcome to others so that they can come and enjoy Stonecroft just as much as we all have.

What makes this cottage unique

Stonecroft is a nice private property yet it is with in walking distance to Main Street. Wilton is a very quaint and friendly town which features a library, post office, grocery store, and other small local businesses. Farmington is less than 10 miles away and has a two larger grocery stores Hannaford and Walmart. It also has a nice small downtown with shopping, restaurants, movie theatre, and walking trails. Our beautiful Franklin county has many wonderful hiking trails. Please visit We recommend: Bald Mt., Tumbledown, and Mt. Blue State Park, Center Hill Nature trail is our favorite short scenic trail.

Fantastic family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This cottage had all the amenities of home in a quiet and secluded location but only a mile from town. The town of Wilton is small but has everything you would need to just get away from the hustle and bustle of life. If you don't have what you want in Wilton there is another larger town about 15 minutes way. The property is gorgeous with many things to do. The lake is quiet and beautiful. If you are into hiking, this cottage is within a 30 min drive of a state park with great hiking and views. Jane and Peter were fantastic hosts throughout our stay giving us free use of the entire property. Within 24 hours of arrival at Stonecroft all 5 people in our party stated they would return to this cottage, this includes the teenagers who can be tough to please. We will definitely be back!
