Historic downtown Wilmington enjoys a beautiful natural setting and a close-knit community, nestled in the southern end of the Green Mountains. Wilmington's compact village center is full of independently owned shops, Inns and restaurants. We are surrounded by lakes, mountains, and forest, with miles of hiking trails (some accessible right from downtown). Skiing is close, and many residents enjoy a year-round active lifestyle. Our location in Southern Vermont makes both surrounding attractions in Vermont and the Berkshires accessible, but we are also a short drive from major metropolitan regions, with New York just 3.5 hours and Boston 2.5 hours away. Wilmington celebrates farm-to-table culture, with many local restaurants offering the best of the bounty of the land. Local boutiques round out a selection of gifts, homewares and clothing including specialty stores such as Quaigh Designs, The Vermont Bowl Company and the Norton Quilt House. Bartleby’s bookshelves are stacked with the latest for a rainy-day read – and feature a great selection of children’s books.
Make Wilmington your home base to explore the natural wonder of Southern Vermont—it's just a tank away.
