We live and work in the Philadelphia suburbs. We are a blended family of seven grown children, several of their spouses, and four grandchildren.
I fell in love with Caspian Lake and Greensboro as a child. After years of looking for as special a place closer to home, we rented houses for family vacations in Greensboro for seven years, and have always loved the area. We bought the house to eventually retire to. Meanwhile, we all love having our own special place in a very special part of Vermont.
We love walking in the woods, swimming and kayaking in the lake, biking and hiking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. We love the peace and quiet of the Northeast Kingdom, the wonderful local foods available, the friendly down-to-earth people, the smell....
The house is a mile and a half from The Hazendale organic farm and market, where we buy delicious fresh produce and local meat and cheeses.
