Greensboro Travel Tips

Greensboro Vacation Rentals Are in the Heart of Vermont's Northeast Kingdom

Set on the beautiful Caspian Lake, the northern Vermont town of Greensboro appeals to many tourists searching for quiet relaxation amidst stunning natural beauty. Greensboro was chartered in 1781 and offers historic rural charm with several local breweries and inns which have excellent restaurants. The stunning sunsets and fall foliage are two of its most colorful attractions, making it a photographer's paradise.

Greensboro Vacation Rentals Provide Great Bases for Those on a Budget

Greensboro vacation houses are ideal for families and groups of friends to get together for a fun-filled vacation. With ample space to accommodate larger groups and fully equipped kitchens, they make good financial sense, especially out of the peak summer season. Campfires by the lakeside, grilling on the deck, picnics in the nearby nature preserve and games around the cozy fireplace are cheap ways to have fun in a vacation rental home. They make a great base for other free activities such as swimming, hiking, biking and fishing, and are ideal for visitors of all ages.

Vermont Vacation Rentals Offer Wide Choices of Things to Do for Families

Greensboro offers a host of things to do starting right in the town center. There are plenty of shops to browse, a library, and a golf and country club where golf and tennis can be played. There are lakeside concerts on Sunday evenings and the Circus Smirkus, the famous youth circus, is always a popular family attraction. No visit is complete without a visit to Willy's General Store, famous throughout the state as one of the best.

The nearby Caspian Lake is well known for its fishing. In fact, the largest lake trout ever caught in Vermont was hooked right here. Fishermen can also enjoy angling for landlocked salmon, rainbow and brook trout, and ice houses make ice fishing a popular winter attraction.

The 800-acre lake has public beaches and boat launches and is one of the few lakes which allows waterskiing. Sailing, windsurfing, pontooning, canoeing, kayaking and tubing are also popular activities on the lake. The shallower waters are perfect for snorkeling while divers enjoy the deep waters. The Barr Hill Nature Preserve has hiking and biking trails and is ideal for horseback riding and nature-spotting. In the winter, the area is perfect for downhill and cross country skiing, snowmobiling, sledding and snowshoeing.

Best Ways to Get to Greensboro Vacation Houses

Most visitors to Greensboro choose to drive, bringing their own boats, Jet Skis, canoes or skis with them. For those from further afield, the nearest airport is the Pierre Elliott Trudeau (YUL) International Airport in Montreal, Canada, 94 miles away, or Portland (PWM) International Jetport in Maine, 117 miles away. Greensboro is within easy reach from the Interstate 91, I-87 from New York and the I-89 from Boston.

Neighborhoods to Explore from Your Greensboro Lodging Choice

The area around Greensboro has many old farms which offer fresh produce and artisan cheeses from their farm shops.

The larger cities of Rutland, Burlington, Essex and Plattsburgh are all within a 75-mile drive of the Caspian Lake.
