We live and work in the Philadelphia suburbs. We are a blended family of seven grown children, several of their spouses, and four grandchildren.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

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....

Perfect peace and quiet

We loved staying in this beautiful home. Within easy reach of the charming village of Greensboro, the home sits high up and set back from the road, surveying a truly expansive front lawn. The photos don't do full justice to this lovely home, which is decorated comfortably and tastefully.

For our family of five the house felt spacious, with plenty of room for three teenagers to have their own space and also to gather in front of the fireplace for fun evenings together. The kitchen had everything we needed (and more) and was a pleasure to cook in. The house was clean and very well-maintained.

We appreciated the two kayaks, canoe and three bikes in the garage, as well as the charcoal grill. The trails behind the house were fun to explore with our dogs.

Nicole was incredibly helpful, giving us recommendations for things to do in the area and generally being hospitable and welcoming.

We had fun exploring the area, including trips to Bread and Puppet, Hardwick (Positive Pie), East Glover, Hill Farmstead Brewery, Montpelier, Barr Hill, Craftsbury Outdoor Center and more. Lots of fun to be had, too, at the public beach in Greensboro and out on the lake in kayaks. Willies general store was extremely well stocked with produce, meats, cheeses (some from local cheese maker Jasper Hill) and a good selection of wine and beer.

All in all we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thanks Nicole!

Great house all year round

I have had the pleasure of renting the house in the winter, fall as well as summer. The location is ideal, close to lake, beautiful quite road to walk and take the dog for a hike. The house has great trails as well.

The amenities were terrific with everything you need in the kitchen and elsewhere. Having internet, a washer dryer and access to long distance phone is awesome. The open layout of the house makes it ideal for relaxing inside and the beautiful property and porches makes it ideal for relaxing outside. The winter time is magical, with a great fireplace and the house was warm and comfortable.

As someone that has vacationed in Greensboro for 14 years, this house was the perfect find.

We love the lake, the library, Willey's Country Store, Hazendale Farm for fresh vegetables, rides to Hardwick to shop at Buffalo Mountain Food Co-op and Connie's Kitchen for the best pies and lunch. And if you like gold or tennis there's Mountainview Country Club. If you don't feel like cooking some nights there is always great dinners at Highland Lodge as well as a great restaurant in Hardwick called Claire's. Never a problem finding activities, concerts, and stuff for kids.

I highly recommend it as a vacation spot for any season.

Owner's Response: Hmmm... There might well be gold at the Mountainview CC, but ...maybe golf would be a safer bet:

A Fabulous Get-Away

This house puts you in the middle of nature while providing easy comfort. The house has a wonderful flow, with many rooms to gather in. It's a very pretty place, with lovely touches to delight the eye. The surroundings are fabulous, with small hiking areas on the property and other bigger hikes possible nearby. You'll feel isolated and connected at the same time. A great place for extended families or reunions or parties, or even the lucky individual or couple who wants beauty and pleasure.
We're going back!

Almost Heaven

What a surprise! Coming round the bend on a wide, well-maintained gravel road, you spot a large, modern home on a hillside, perfectly framed by a tall, dense mixed forest on three sides and a broad apron of cut grass out front. The interior shows off the design talents of the owners, a true artist's palette of good taste. Plenty of room, plenty of light, plenty of charm. You won't want to leave!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Jacques! ... Guess we won't let our lawn grow into a meadow just yet...
Next time you should plan a longer stay!
