Lakefront Summer Cottage

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,000 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

3+ Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Separate Study, Sleeps 6 to 8

One of the nicest summer cottages on Caspian Lake in Greensboro, VT. Black's Point is an ideal location within Greensboro, as it's on the lake and close to town but well away from the main road, thus very quiet and safe for children. The cottage is surrounded by trees on three sides but its direct southern exposure keeps it sunny and warm. (See video at end of photo reel.) Its living room, dining room, kitchen and large deck overlook the lake. The deck is equipped with a large electric-powered retractable awning. The master bedroom has a king bed and an en suite full bath with shower. The 2nd bedroom has a queen bed and shares a full bath (with shower) with the small 3rd bedroom, which has two twin beds that can be joined together to form a double bed. The property also has a separate, small, rustic, one-room lakefront cabin with an exterior porch, which cabin has two single beds but has no bath or running water. Large dock, canoe, two kayaks, a swim-float and a swim raft. Very private setting. Renters may also use the Black's Point clay tennis court (shared access).

About Day L. Patterson

My wife and I are retired professionals who have lived and worked in New York City for many years. We now live in Naples, FL. We have a second home in Greensboro, where we spend most of every summer.

Day L. Patterson purchased this cottage in 1980

Why Day L. Patterson chose Vermont

We don't know of a nicer 3 BR lakefront rental cottage in Greensboro! This home was rented every summer for 10 consecutive years by a family of five, and became available again only in the summer of 2014 when that family purchased a lakefront summer home in Greensboro.

What makes this cottage unique

A comfortable, casual and very private summer cottage on Caspian Lake, with a large south-facing deck (and an electric-power retractable awning) overlooking the lake and surrounded by trees on each of its other three sides.

Perfect Lake Vacation Spot!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time in this special 3 bedroom lake-front cottage. We went kayaking and canoeing from their private dock and we barbecued every night (a real treat for city-folk). The cottage was so cozy that sometimes we just relaxed and read on the sunny deck. The grounds are lush, beautiful and private. The kitchen is completely up-to-date. The owners are very welcoming. With its fireplace (and stored firewood) this cottage would make a great getaway for the fall. Recommend this highly. Can't wait to go back!!

Excellent place to vacation

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely wonderful. The owner was incredibly responsive and accommodating. It was the perfect location for us, since it was about equal driving distance to the mountain biking meccas of Stowe and East Burke. The cottage was cozy and we had plenty of firewood for the chilly nights of early June. It rained for most of our stay but we got two beautiful days where we were able to enjoy the sunshine on the private dock. I highly recommend this place for your Vermont vacation.

Picture perfect

  • 5 of 5

My family (my wife, two children and I) reside in the Seattle, WA area and we rented this 3-bedroom cottage in Greensboro, VT for a week last summer, loved it, and are returning to it for three weeks this coming summer. What more can I say! It’s just about perfect. Very comfortable, sunny, private, close to the lake, great deck, beautiful view – and the owners are very responsive and very nice. Five stars!

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We lucked out! Sunny southern exposure just the right distance from the lake. The kayaks and canoe were an added bonus, as was the fireplace for the chilly evenings. The beds were comfy and made for a good night's sleep away from home.

Blacks Point Caspian Lake Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our family loves vacationing in Greensboro and we’ve rented this cottage for

the past decade! It’s a wonderful cottage in a delightful location

and was perfect for us. The cottage is bright, sunny, private, quiet, and right on

the lake, with a large newly-renovated kitchen, a very nice living room and

separate dining room, a well-furnished large deck, and a good dock for

swimming and boating. The master and first guest bedrooms are very

comfortable. The 3rd bedroom is on the small side, but was fine for our two

young boys, and when they were older, they slept in the small lakeside

cabin. The owners (no relation to us) reside in Greensboro in the summer,

are very nice and were always incredibly responsive and helpful. We've truly enjoyed

returning to this cottage for the past seven summers, so much so that we

recently bought our own summer home in Greensboro.
