Greensboro Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Cottage, 5 Bedrooms, 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 8)
If you are interested in a classic New England lakeshore vacation in the beautiful Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, then consider the beautiful shore of Caspian Lake in Greensboro. This spacious five bedroom summer cottage has been in a single family since the 1930s and has a lot of traditional beauty and character. Caspian Lake is one of the cleanest and most beautiful Vermont lakes, and our cottage is located on the sandiest side of the lake - the south shore. Great for children who want to play in the sand and wade in the water - and for adults, too!
The cottage is in a fantastic location, only a 10 minute walk to the Willey's Store, the local general store begun over 100 years ago. Mountain View Country Club, Vermont's first golf club, is also a ten minute walk from the cottage and has a beautiful golf course and seven clay tennis courts. Greensboro is also a wonderful summer community and is great for families - and it is also the home of the famous Circus Smirkus!! There are numerous great spots for picnics, including Barr Hill, and great day hikes, mountain biking and wonderful scenic drives are all very nearby. A walking path circles most of Caspian Lake for great lakeshore walks. During July and August, there are Sunday evening concerts of recorded classical music open to the public - right next door!

We include a canoe and a dingy with the rental. Two large lakefront bedrooms have commanding views of Caspian Lake, and there are three additional bedrooms - one with a built-in bunk bed. The living room with a large, attractive fireplace and dining room are great relaxing and entertaining space, and there is a small private den off the dining room.
So if you want to 'get off the grid' and unwind with your family for a truly restful vacation with plenty to do both at the Cottage and in Greensboro and the surrounding area, please contact us about our cottage. (For those of you who still want to get your emails, free public wireless is available both at the local town Library and at the Mountain View Country Club) NEW in 2014! We are adding WiFi to the cottage, and three of the four upstairs bedrooms have brand new mattresses.

Our grandparents first owned this cottage in the early 1930s; now three of their four grandchildren have owned it for the last ten years.
Our great grandparents began coming to Greensboro in the late 1890s with other college professors and ministers. We have been enjoying Greensboro our entire lives, and it truly remains our favorite spot, drawing us all back from all across the United States.
We enjoy slowing down from busy lives while we are in Greensboro, frequently enjoying swimming and boating the lake, reading on the beach, the porch overlooking the lake or in the living room, and many other great but relaxing outdoor activities every summer. The public lake path allows for easy daily walks past some great, classic cottages.
