Greensboro is a preeminently rural community in Orleans County, one of three that make up Vermont's fabled Northeast Kingdom. The village has several dairy farms as well as fields and forests conserved by The Nature Conservancy, the Vermont Land Trust and the Greensboro Land Trust. Greensboro has a richly stocked general store (Willeys), and a country club with tennis and golf that nonmembers can access for daily fees (mvcc). A gourmet restaurant is available nearby (Claire's). The village and hinterland offer picturesque drives over back-country roads beside rivers, lakes and hills.

Gem of a Cabin

  • 5 of 5
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.

We loved the Eyrie Cottage

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, together with two kids, two dogs, and a cat spent 8 blissful weeks in this cottage in each of the summers of 2012 and 2011, as well as shorter stays during the two previous summers. The cottage is simple, clean and comfortable, and its location is spectacular: at the end of a private road, high on a hill with a beautiful view of mountains out the windows of the main room, yet an easy drive to the village of Greensboro. You walk out of the cottage directly onto a private trail that takes you through gorgeous woods and back fields, eventually arriving at the Barr Hill Nature Preserve and further trails. Caspian Lake is at the bottom of the drive, and the shared private dock is a great place to swim. The Greys are wonderful and generous hosts, always available if needed.

Things we did while we were there: hiked parts of the Long Trail; went to Bread and Puppet; visited Ben & Jerry's factory; visited St. Johnsbury, Montpelier, and Stowe; frequented the lovely Greensboro Public Library; shopped for delicious local produce at Pete's Greens and the Buffalo Mountain Coop; and of course swam in Caspian Lake and explored the woods and trails around the cottage.

We loved staying in the cottage so much that last summer we decided to buy our own place; otherwise we would return every year in the future.

Great getaway from civilization

  • 5 of 5
This was a nice little cabin that is both up in the mountains and near a lake. The cabin is up a steep gravel road that is secluded and quiet. There are a few nice hiking trails right on the property. The lake is across the street with a private dock and canoe. The cabin was clean and well maintained. Big windows to enjoy the beautiful view over the mountain. There is no TV and I didnt see a ping pong table, unless it was in the attic, but there is wireless internet so bring a laptop for entertainment at night. There is also plenty of books (adult and kid) and some kid toys. There is a nice fireplace in the livingroom with wood outside so make sure you bring supplies to make smores.
There is the "Willies" store right down the road with plenty of food items so no worries if you forgot something at home.
There is plenty to do within reasonable driving distance. Cabot creamery is about 20min away. Ben & Jerrys and Green Mountain Coffee are about an hour away. Vermont Teddy Bear and Lake Champlain Chocolates is about 2 hours. There are also several farmer markets on Thursday and Friday in the surrounding towns. Plenty of fresh organic food.
Overall really great place to visit. Spend your days visiting the factories and farms and spend your nights by the fire roasting smores.
