We were introduced to Greensboro in 1967 by Tim's fraternity house mother at U.V.M. We spent many wonderful weekends during our college years swimming in the lake, hiking, and exploring the area. When it came time to 'settle down', Greensboro presented an opportunity. We moved to the area in 1971, started the Greensboro Garage in the village, and in 1972 bought our first home where we still live three miles up the road.

Living in a small rural town, raising our two children, provided multiple opportunities to give back to the community . Tim has been the town moderator for over 30 years and on numerous community boards and committees. He is an active EMT volunteer on the local rescue squad. Bobbie, a registered nurse, has volunteered as a member of many local boards, created the Senior Trotter Program to provide cultural and fun activities for seniors in our area. We both enjoy gardening, sailing, and touring on our Harley Davidson motorcycles during the summer. During the winter, we can be found skiing the cross country trails in town, when not hunkered down by the wood stove. The creative process of restoring and landscaping our current home has been a labor of love we have really enjoyed for over 40 years.

Tim or Bobbie Nisbet purchased this farmhouse in 2011

The Baker Hill House is a house we have passed on our way home for over 40 years. When it became vacant and we could see it falling into disrepair, we took a look and fell in love with it. It was a diamond in the rough and truly needed loving care to bring it into the 21st century while keeping it's simple charm. Here was a way we could share our wonderful town, it's incredible beauty, and it's offerings with others. Baker Hill House has evolved from a full working farm house early in the 19th century to a summer residence in the 1960's, to a family residence in the 80's & 90's. It is now on a path to welcoming travelers and providing them a place to rest, restore, and drink in the beauty of the area.

Cozy and Quaint Farmhouse

  • 4 of 5
Our stay was the perfect Vermont winter vacation. The farmhouse is clean well stocked from the kitchen to the extra comforters. Despite the cold temperatures (below zero) we remained toasty due to the fine heating system. Because we were a bit snowbound, we did a lot of food preparation and found everything you would need for a big New Year's celebration dinner. Bobbie was delightful and willing to assist with any of our needs. The town of Hardwick is a cute little village and we enjoyed several meals at Claire's and Positive Pie. Good beer at both places, try the Hill Farmstead brew. We entertained ourselves by playing cards (bring your own), reading and watching DVD's. Very relaxing and good family time together. Unfortunately, it was too cold to hike. Thanks for a really nice time.

Owner's Response: Teri,
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in our vacation home. So glad to know you had the items you needed in the kitchen. I am always open to suggestions to improve the experience. There are playing cards in the house as well as puzzles and games. I am sorry I did not bring your attention to these items. They are located on the shelf and lower cupboard of the green shelf unit in the living room. You were very brave to be here in such cold weather. I hope you you will visit again when the weather is warmer.
Bobbie

Labor Day Retreat

  • 5 of 5
My husband and our two sons (ages 2 and 4) stayed in this adorable yellow farmhouse for a long weekend at the end of the summer. It is an old farmhouse with an interesting history, and has been wonderfully restored. We had fun imagining it in its previous incarnation, and enjoyed the wide pine floors, wooden staircase and built in cupboards and bookshelves. The house is located in a beautiful wooded area just a few minutes from the town of Greensboro, close to Caspian Lake, Hill Farmstead, and miles of beautiful Vermont scenery. We enjoyed walking the dirt roads, visiting neighboring cows, and listening to the noises of the forest at night. The house is immaculately clean, very spacious, and equipped with everything one would need for an extended stay, including washer and dryer, dishwasher, and excellent wireless internet (cell phones don't work in most of Greensboro, so there is a land line at the house). The owners were aware that we had small children, and provided a baby gate for the stairs as well as had some board games and books for kids. My only complaint was that the master bedroom has a full mattress and my 6'2" husband and I had a really tight fit (but this was an oversight on my part and was exactly as advertised). All in all, we had a terrific stay and would certainly return!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed Baker Hill House.I am presently working on a scrap book of the renovations. I have gathered some history of the house and hope to include this information in the scrap book. We are reviewing your concerns about having a larger bed. Old farm houses certainly provide challenges around queen and king beds and ours is no exception. We have some ideas and will try them out this fall. We hope to see you back soon. Bobbie & Tim

Greensboro is centrally located to many major towns. Our village offers a well stocked library which hosts a children's story time in the winter and many activities in the summer. Our small town boasts summer theater, concerts, a lecture series, and the wonderful 'Funky Fourth' of July parade and festival. A local brewery is a mile up the road from the Baker Hill House. Caspian Lake beach is a little over a mile down the road offing a boat launch, swimming and picnicking, Willeys Store, a well known century-old country store located near the beach, has anything you may need. A fine local artisan craft store is open during the summer across from the store. Many local craftspeople in the area open their studios to the public. Check out the Greensboro Historical Society's exhibits next to Willeys.
