Woods & water
Clive's guest house is the perfect Vermont getaway - nestled up in the forest, with a private dock just a short drive away. The cottage is rustic, charming and comfortable, and we loved being able to walk over to Barr Hill to watch the sunset. Swimming and canoeing in beautiful Lake Caspian was the icing on the cake! Thank you, Clive, for sharing your family getaway with us.
Blissful hills and lake!
Lovely, cozy cottage tucked in the hills of the North East Kingdom. We spent a week swimming in the sublime waters of Caspian Lake, hiking the trails to Barr Hill and watching weather in the valley below.
The house is fantastic--super usable, clean, and the family loved hanging out at night, reading by the fire and playing cards.
Loved being outside the village, but accessible to the amenities like Willey's and Hill Farmstead.
Check out Bread and Puppet and the Museum of Everyday Life just up the road in Glover for some local culture!
A fabulous retreat
We had a fabulous stay here. We could not ask for better hosts than Clive and Nancy. In addition to offering us a clean, well-appointed cabin situated above Caspian Lake and abutting Nature Conservancy land, we were warmly welcomed, invited to join them for a July 4th even, and offered all the information we needed about local events and spots to check out. Conversations with Clive gave us a great sense of the right history of his family's connections to the lake, Barr Hill, and Greensboro in general.
We wanted for nothing and would go back in a heartbeat.
The beauty of the night sky, the scent of sweetgrass on the hike up the hill, and the blessed quiet day and night are treasures.
Our week long stay in this cottage was nothing short of wonderful. The cottage is equipped with all the kitchen items one needs to cook and enjoy full meals. The cottage is clean, has an inspirational view, and allows the guest to unwind after a day of hiking, swimming, canoeing or traveling. The bed was comfortable and we loved sleeping with the windows open and breathing in the fresh mountain air.
The town of Greensboro is a classic New England town. We shopped for all of our food at Willeys (right in town). Willeys was fully stocked with Vermont foods, and we enjoyed local pies, cheese, breads, meats, fruits and veggies each day.
We recommend going to Perennial pleasures and enjoying their deluxe tea (those scones and cucumber Sammie’s are AMAZING) and perusing the grounds, the Greensboro Historic Barn was enchanting and had some really beautiful gifts for purchase, definitely head to the Highland lodge for cocktails and delicious dinners, and the Arts center for a light alfresca lunch.
Favorite activities: Our daily hike to Barr Hill each day for our morning excercise, swimming in the crystal clear lake, listening to the loons, canoeing on the lake, watching the sunrise from our cottage, eating local foods, and enjoying the quiet and natural beauty of the area.
We cannot wait to return!
We are delighted that you found your stay in Greensboro so enjoyable!
Gem of a Cabin
This cabin is in an amazing location for views and peacefulness. We hiked and canoed right there, and, being on the top of the hill, the views every morning were breathtaking. Loved the fireplace and the Barr Natural Reserve walking distance from the front door. Looking forward to going back soon.
