Greensboro cottage description

If you are interested in a classic New England lakeshore vacation in the beautiful Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, then consider the beautiful shore of Caspian Lake in Greensboro. This spacious five bedroom summer cottage has been in a single family since the 1930s and has a lot of traditional beauty and character. Caspian Lake is one of the cleanest and most beautiful Vermont lakes, and our cottage is located on the sandiest side of the lake - the south shore. Great for children who want to play in the sand and wade in the water - and for adults, too!

The cottage is in a fantastic location, only a 10 minute walk to the Willey's Store, the local general store begun over 100 years ago. Mountain View Country Club, Vermont's first golf club, is also a ten minute walk from the cottage and has a beautiful golf course and seven clay tennis courts. Greensboro is also a wonderful summer community and is great for families - and it is also the home of the famous Circus Smirkus!! There are numerous great spots for picnics, including Barr Hill, and great day hikes, mountain biking and wonderful scenic drives are all very nearby. A walking path circles most of Caspian Lake for great lakeshore walks. During July and August, there are Sunday evening concerts of recorded classical music open to the public - right next door! Learn more about Greensboro by clicking on the Greensboro Association link further down in this profile.

We include a canoe and a dingy with the rental. Two large lakefront bedrooms have commanding views of Caspian Lake, and there are three additional bedrooms - one with a built-in bunk bed. The living room with a large, attractive fireplace and dining room are great relaxing and entertaining space, and there is a small private den off the dining room.

So if you want to 'get off the grid' and unwind with your family for a truly restful vacation with plenty to do both at the Cottage and in Greensboro and the surrounding area, please contact us about our cottage. (For those of you who still want to get your emails, free public wireless is available both at the local town Library and at the Mountain View Country Club) NEW in 2014! We are adding WiFi to the cottage, and three of the four upstairs bedrooms have brand new mattresses.

                    Vermont Charm!

                    We loved the Vermont charm of the natural surroundings, the cottage, and the lake with walk out beach. We immediately slowed our pace with this historic cabin, the beautiful fireplace, the quiet of living at the lake, nearby local adventures, and the country gardens. We enjoyed each meal on the covered lake front porch, incredible sunsets, and the fun of ping pong, canoeing, scrabble, and all without any outside interruption. Every room had its own charm and individual character taking you back to a simpler time.

                    Recommended for: Sightseeing, romantic getaway, families with young children, girls getaway, tourists without a car, adventure seekers.

                    Owner response: Thank you for letting us know how much you enjoyed Caspian Lake last summer. Great reminders of activities even we have forgotten to do sometimes!

                    As usual, our grown family enjoyed a memorable Greensboro reprieve — a vacation spot that time forgot. The main house is a classic Adirondack-style summer cottage with a massive fireplace and lovely porch overlooking Caspian Lake. Its private beach leads to majestic mountains defining the horizon. Nights are cool and restful, filled with ink-black skies, brilliant stars, and soothing sounds of water lapping against boats and shoreline. The cottage's interior appointments are ample and comfortable, while nostalgic and spare. We love the sense of slipping back into a simpler time that this vacation spot evokes, along with its momentos from earlier generations and important leaders who summered in this place. The location feels isolated yet convenient — walkable to town for an ice cream cone or additional provisions. Nearby Mountain View Country Club offers a friendly, relaxed 9-hole golf course and 7 tennis courts, served by a beautiful new clubhouse with rambling porches and wicker rocking chairs. Complimentary wireless internet is available throughout the clubhouse. Cell service around Greensboro is spotty at best — conducive to unplugging for vacation. The land line in the cottage kitchen works just fine when a call is needed. All in all, it is a delightful place and touchstone to a bygone era, reminding us of what really matters.

                    Recommended for: Families with teenagers, sightseeing, romantic getaway, age 55+, families with young children, girls getaway, tourists without a car, adventure seekers.

                    Owner response: Thank you, Kent and Denise, and we are glad you enjoyed your time in our home in Greensboro.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1933

                  About the owner: Our grandparents first owned this cottage in the early 1930s; now three of their four grandchildren have owned it for the last ten years.

                  Why the Owner Chose Greensboro:
                  Our great grandparents began coming to Greensboro in the late 1890s with other college professors and ministers. We have been enjoying Greensboro our entire lives, and it truly remains our favorite spot, drawing us all back from all across the United States.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  We enjoy slowing down from busy lives while we are in Greensboro, frequently enjoying swimming and boating the lake, reading on the beach, the porch overlooking the lake or in the living room, and many other great but relaxing outdoor activities every summer. The public lake path allows for easy daily walks past some great, classic cottages.
