Bedrooms 3
Space 3,100 sq ft
Property type chalet
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

- 3 bedrooms plus loft, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 13, 3100 sq ft

This new lakefront cedar log cabin is available the rental season! Minutes away from Mount Snow and Stratton, winter activities include: skiing, ice skating and ice fishing. Also 2 miles from the center of Wilmington.

The property has 160 ft of water frontage on Spruce Lake. Fish for brook trout in this privately stocked lake. Take our 2 canoes, 2 kayaks and paddle board out on the lake for a fishing or site-seeing trip. Swim from our private beach or canoe to a shared beach at the end of the lake. Fall asleep to the sound of the brook running just outside the cabin!

This is the perfect family vacation. The lake does not allow motor boats and the lake frontage has a shallow sandy entry.

Wildlife abound!: The lake, brook and surrounding woods provide a perfect wildlife habitat.

This year we've seen: moose, black bear, deer, heron, beaver, otter, geese, ducks. The family of ducks ask to be fed at least twice a day. Moose tracks have been seen on our beach. And a pair of black bear are well known to the area (keep the trash cans lids latched!).

The brook has brook trout, frogs, turtles and crayfish. And of course the lake is loaded with perch, brook trout, rock bass, and mud puppies.

In the surrounding woods the kids will also enjoy catching salamanders, newts, and garter snakes.

Waterfront Fire Pit ! We have a burn pit on our private beach. We provide the firewood; you provide the marshmallows!

About Tim Ryan

We love water and winter activities. So what could be better than a waterfront chalet 10 miles from Mount Snow!

Tim Ryan purchased this chalet in 2006

Why Tim Ryan chose Wilmington

We built this cedar log home as a 4 season retreat. The lake provides: fishing, swimming, canoeing, and ice skating.

And great skiing and golf is within 10 miles of the house.

What makes this chalet unique

The smell of cedar greets you at the door.

The house has geothermal heat and CENTRAL AIR CONDITIONING! No hot muggy summer nights here.

The lake has been privately stocked with brook trout and rainbow trout for over 20 years

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear new family,

Hi! We are the kids of the previous family. You will notice there is a baby duck swimming around by herself. Her mother and four siblings (you will see these swimming around too) abandoned her. Well, her name is Petunla and she likes company. If you sit in the water she will swim around you. If you have any food, she would love to take it, but feed her sparingly. She needs to learn to find food by herself.

Thank you,

previos family

Wonderful any season!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a fantastic visit over the winter that we had to come back in the summer. The ice skating was so much fun with my children. They spent the entire time outside sledding, skating, roasting marshmellows and building snow caves. When we went back in the summer, it was like a whole new vacation, between, the swimming, canoeing, and expolring in the woods. We took our bikes out for a ride into town as well. I love the house!! It feels like a luxury to be in a space that is so clean and comfortable. Having the movies and games for kids was great. Thank you for a wonderful vacation. We are going to be back for sure.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Really incredible house and location on a small private lake. Close to town but far away enough to enjoy what Vermont is all about. The huge deck overlooking the lake and waterside fire pit where features that made a great house perfect. Would recommend to anyone and will be staying again. Go ahead and book it, you’ll thank me.

Great cabin and even better property

  • 5 of 5

Spent a weekend at this cabin with a group of friends. The home was very clean and inviting. Great layout and room for all. We all enjoyed the lake and access to the canoes and kayaks. Would recommend for a relaxing weekend. Tim - the owner - was very responsive and helpful throughout.

Perfect for a family with young children

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, with herons, birds and bullfrogs. Easy canoeing and fishing. Perfect for small children. You could swim right at the property or at the beach down the road. Clean and safe home with child gate at the top of the stairs. 3 baths. Wonderful quality time with our children and grandchildren. Lots of good restaurants nearby.
