About Ray Gaines 203-650-6167

Our home has been used exclusively by my wife, myself and our 3 sons. We have had many good years of year round, short and long vacations. We have been snowmobilers, skiers, kayakers, fisherman (summer & winter), ice skaters, golfers, horse back riders, river gold miners, hikers and many more, to numerous to mention. It has been a home away from home to do as much or as little as we wanted to do. As time has passed we don't have as much opportunity to utilize the home as we once did, but still enjoy the time we do spend there. We hope you will enjoy and care for the home as we have for so long.

Ray Gaines 203-650-6167 purchased this house in 1987

Why Ray Gaines 203-650-6167 chose Mount Snow Area

This home has been totally updated with quality improvements that are rare in many rentals. It is convenient to all local fun stuff and restaurants and yet very private in a small community setting on a dead end road overlooking beautiful, Lake Raponda.

What makes this house unique

I love to sleep on the screen porch in the summer and enjoy the sunrise across the lake each morning. Even on a rainy day, the screen porch provides a tranquil place to read and relax.

Swimming in the lake is great because being somewhat shallow, the water temp can get to 80degrees at times.

The master bedroom with a queen size bed is on the first floor.

A handicapped ramp is located on the left side.

Great House in a Beautiful Area

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented this property for Presidents day weekend and it could not have gone any better. The property is beautiful and the views overlooking the lake are great, I would definitely visit this place in the summer. Even better for us, we were a short 15 minute ride from Mt. Snow which made our daily ski commutes easier. This is definitely a place I would rent again.

Perfect House for Ski Trip

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for a nice winter getaway. With a great location to get to some great mountains we were able to enjoy not just the house but Stratton Mountain which was about a 30-40 minute drive. There were 3 levels to the home which provided a great amount of space for us, and the kitchen and family room were perfect to hang around and enjoy each others company. There was a great patio and an amazing fireplace that made it all even better. The house was perfect for us being able to get a way and enjoy the outdoors. We would definitely come back and stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Joe, thank you for the kind words. I am glad your group had a great time and enjoyed my home. I am sure the new snow was a real bonus for your skiing. I invite you to come back anytime. The summer on the lake is equally great and the fall colors and crisp air are wonderful. Best regards, Ray

Great House

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here, group of eight guys who have a once a year getaway for a fantasy football draft. Nice fire pit, beautiful deck, and kayak is available to use as well. Very spacious and well laid out.

Beautiful house on a lake!

My family loved this beautiful house with lake access and kayak. It was perfect for our family reunion with three levels so each bedroom has privacy. Beautiful deck and screened porch.

A beutiful home for all seasons

  • 5 of 5

This house is fantastic! Beautiful views of Lake Raponda, and short (as in less than 5 minutes) walk to the docks where you can make use of the owners canoe and kayak if you are visiting in the summer time. The house is also only about 15 minutes from Mt. Snow, so, although it wasn't when we stayed, it would also be a great spot in the winter months.

The home itself is spacious with plenty of room for the 8 guests (all adults) that we had there during our stay. The home is also updated with a modern kitchen and bathrooms, and two porches (one screened, one not) both overlooking the lake.

The property's owner was a pleasure to work with and was helpful in answering everyone one of our questions.

If you are considering a stay in Wilmington, VT, you would be hard pressed to find a better location.
