Whether you're looking for a quiet trip to the country or a vacation packed with outdoor activities, one of our idyllic Wilmington vacation rentals is a great choice. Enjoy afternoons of shopping, whooshing down ski slopes, and hiking on beautiful wooded trails!
This historic town in Windham County of Southern Vermont sits right at the edge of the Green Mountain National Forest. A mere 11 miles from the Massachusets border, it is nestled snugly in the heart of a snowbelt, making it a fabulous destination for winter sports.
Just eight miles north, you'll find world-class skiing at Mount Snow, host of the Winter X Games and other events. A bit past Mount Snow, just 14 miles north of Wilmington, is the exciting town of Stratton, which is full of shopping, dining, and a wonderful day spa for skiing aches.
This charming village is a mecca for shoppers. Not only is there a wide variety of quality goods to peruse, but most of the shops are found in historic and architecturally interesting houses. Browse the works at the Art of Humor Gallery or visit the Jim McGrath Gallery and Studio to find pieces by local artists and hear about their work.
If you're in town for a family reunion or wedding, book Wilmington’s Historic Memorial Hall for a truly special venue. No ordinary town hall, it is considered to be one of the most significant buildings in the state. For any avid golfers, Haystack Golf Club is nearby if you're looking for a green.
Whatever your preference - cross-country skiing, tubing, snowshoeing, or snowmobiling - there are plenty of places to go. Mount Snow is the most famous, where you'll enjoy amenities in the neighboring town of Dover, but it is by no means the only option. You'll find plenty of backcountry trails in the nearby wilderness. If you don't want to leave your cozy Wilmington vacation home, just head to the backyard and build a snow fort!
Harriman Reservoir is a gorgeous setting in any season, but summer in particular is excellent for hikes, picnics, and photo shoots. Rent a boat and get out on the tranquil water, or spend hours swimming and fishing in the summer. If you're around in the autumn, enjoy the stunning colors as leaves turn russet and gold.
Rent some bikes and take long rides as a family - it's the best way to get around town and see the most nature you can while you're here! Visit the sugarhouses, where sweet-smelling steam billows out and sap becomes delectable maple syrup.
