Overview

About the property

Our 4-season log cabin (yr. built 2002) is located on a cul de sac in a quiet section away from the main roads in the Chimney Hill Resort Community. It is fully furnished 3 bedroom 2 bath and can sleep 9+ people (master (up) bunk room, queen size lower and loft sleeping area). It is a perfect getaway for a family or to entertain groups of friends. The décor is rustic and cozy, with a wraparound deck and the use of a soapstone wood stove during the winter months. There is a partially completed basement with a large screen TV and table tennis. Other amenities for your convenience include an outdoor grill, full-range stove, microwave, high speed internet, washer dryer and refrigerator. The cabin was built on two lots and backs up to the Green Mountains.

The Clubhouse & amenities include indoor and outdoor (seasonal) heated pools, hot tub, tennis, bocce, basketball courts, horse shoe pit, shuffle board, pool table, ping pong table, and game room for the kids and young at heart. There's also a reading and lounge area with WI-FI. BYOB bar and kitchen overlooking the indoor pool and hot tub. Open use grills and decks with outdoor tables. Of course, there's a large flat screen TV room (Friday night movies for the kids) and a kids play room. During the winter months, there is a groomed ice skating pond and warming hut (fully packed with second-hand skates. The V.A.S.T. snow mobile trails can also be accessed right from our location! Up the hill (about a 5-minute drive), you will find the Haystack hiking trail entrance and a fully stocked trout pond.

Enjoy a quiet stroll through downtown historic Wilmington Village with its charming restaurants and shops only a mile away. Come join the fun and convenience our community offers. We are 7 miles from Mount Snow Ski Resort offering ski/snowboarding, ski school/day care programs, tubing, scenic lift rides, and downhill mountain biking. Mount Snow also presents the “Tough Mudder” and various seasonal festivals.

If golfing is your choice, we are 1.5 miles to Hermitage Golf Club at Haystack and 5 miles to Mt Snow's Golf Course and school. Great location for spring, summer and fall golfing

You are also within close distance to antiquing and outdoor flea markets; wine tasting; hiking in The Green Mountain National Forest; Twin Brooks Snowmobile Tours; boating/freshwater fishing at Lake Raponda and Lake Whitingham; horseback riding; and sleigh rides at Adams Farm.

Let’s not forget the apples or maple syrup.

Why Marty Hodge chose Wilmington

This property was purchased as a present to my new Yankee wife. She wanted a place that she could come back to reflect on her New England upbringing. It was a perfect gift since we moved to Atlanta and then Texas. We did not rent the place out much since it was "her house" but later thought other people would enjoy it also. She put her own decorating touch on it and we continue to visit once a year, hoping that upon retirement we will stay forever. So enjoy it while you can because soon it will become home again.

The most wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the entire 2017/2018 ski season in this beautiful, perfectly situated, and comfortable log cabin. We felt right at home! It was perfect for our family of four, with plenty of space to accommodate friends and family who stayed with us during various weekends and holidays. The home is impeccable--clean, bright, and airy. The home really works very well for an active family. We loved the open concept of the living space and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our own meals--well kept appliances, tons of dishes, glasses, utensils, mugs, cookware, etc. The washer/dryer on the main level made doing laundry very easy. We also really enjoyed having the basement--complete with ping pong table, dart board, and huge flat screen TV which was a treat for our boys. The owners were wonderful and very easy to work with from the very beginning. We would absolutely recommend this home to anyone looking for a rental in the area.

Owner's Response: Lynette: Thanks for the great review and I want to thank you and your family for being great guests. Since you received over 120 inches of snow, it was nice of you to shovel the snow away from the entrance as well as the deck. I look forward to future visits if your family decides. Have a great summer. Marty & Deb

Beautiful home is Immaculate and well appointed

  • 5 of 5

Nothing really to improve on. Our master bedroom TV didn't appear to turn on and because of it's high mounting location was tough to diagnose. Everything was ready for us (and that's a rarity in Wilmington in terms of sheets and towels). Might need some trees cut back to see the home number/address. If we don't end up buying soon, we plan on doing return trips.

Great, private, relaxing home!

  • 4 of 5

This house was so spacious and well set up. We enjoyed the foliage without even going outside! Loved the convenience of being so close to shopping and restaurants. We experienced the local flea market and ate at Dot's Restaurant. We would recommend this house/location to anyone for any season!

To better understand each renters "enjoyment factor" I would like to know what your concerns were to recieve the 4 star rating. All past renters gave me 5 stars so I would like to understand where I fell short so I can fix it for future renters. Thanks Marty
