This newly constructed (2002) Vermont Cape is located on 50 very private acres of rolling open grasslands and pristine woodlands with breathtaking views of Mount Mansfield and Vermont's Green Mountains. You'll pass several dairy farms as you find your way to this one of a kind escape location. Situated on a ridge spanning the townships of Greensboro, Craftsbury and Hardwick, this home affords all the comforts of a luxury resort while allowing for all the solitude and peace of mind of an alpine camping trip. The home features beautiful exposed beams, hardwood floors throughout, custom built cabinets, plus a large fireplace. Activities for all seasons abound outside your front door. In summer, there is swimming, biking and hiking; in winter, cross country skiing, sledding and snowmobiling. For lake lovers in the summer, Caspian Lake in Greensboro is only 5 minutes away. For downhill lovers in winter, Stowe and Jay Peak are less than an hour away.
This home sleeps 14 comfortably with six bedrooms and 4 1/2 baths. Included are: downstairs master bedroom with full bath, fireplace, king size bed, and walk in closet; downstairs guest bedroom with full bath and queen size bed; two upstairs bedrooms with queen beds; one upstairs bedroom with two twin beds; upstairs dormitory with four beds. The upstairs also includes two full baths, and a family game and exercise room with television.
The downstairs layout is open. There is an expansive kitchen complete with all modern amenities (two ovens), which leads to a dining area, which leads to a living room with a large brick fireplace. Also included downstairs is a pantry room with washer and dryer and second refrigerator, a separate library and television room with satellite reception, a 1/2 bath for guests, and a warm storage area for coats, boots and winter gear.
For the spring through fall months, there is a large screened in porch with separate dining and sitting areas.
There's more. For the warmer months there is an in-ground pool, complete with patio and pool house that includes a changing room, and outdoor shower. Also, there is an outdoor basketball court. A two car garage is attached to the main house, separated by a cold mud room.
Greensboro is in the center of Vermont's Northeast Kingdom, rich with cultural activities and Vermont charm. Within miles, in every direction, there are countless hiking, biking, skiing and snowmobiling trails. There are numerous lakes to fish and swim, and nearby Barr Hill preserve offers spectacular views of both the Green Mountains of Vermont and the White Mountains of New Hampshire and welcomes picnickers. Antique stores can be found in every town.
Burlington is 1 1/4 hrs away; Montpelier is only a 40 minute drive. Downhill skiing at Stowe or Jay Peak is 1 hour away. The hub of Vermont's local food movement is here, with several organic farmers and cheese makers offering their produce at local food markets and outdoor stands. And, of course, all can be found and had at Willey's General Store in Greensboro. The cafe at the Highland Arts Center in Greensboro and the Positive Pie restaurant in Hardwick offer some of Vermont's finest dining. Summer months offer a Sunday night concert series on Caspian Lake, and family fun at Circus Smirkus. There is also golf and tennis, open to guests, at the Green Mountain Country Club in Greensboro.

Great family stay
Took our family of 11 to a long weekend get away to VT. Had such a great stay at this beautiful house. The views of the mountains were amazing. Made lots of family memories.

Beautiful house and property with a breathtaking view!
The house and amenities were all excellent. We arrived to a clean house with clean linens. I loved it in the winter and I can’t imagine how beautiful it is in the other seasons!
Great spot and lovely home
This was a wonderful house in a great Vermont location. Beautiful views, quiet and comfortable. The owner was terrific to deal with and the home is very comfortable. We would definitely stay there again when we are in the area.
House and grounds very clean and well kept.
Great time. Enjoyed a lot of family time at the pool. Nice day trip to Stowe. Loved Positive Pie in downtown Hardwick
Awesome Vermont Summer Home
My friends and family had a great time at the Greensboro Home. Tom was a very responsive owner who answered calls and emails very promptly. The house was fantastic, even for a weekend stay. Was able to accommodate all 8 comfortably with room to spare. The pool and grounds were beautiful and spacious, allowing for lots of room for outdoor activities. There was no wifi at the house and cell phone reception was spotty, but neither was needed for much for our weekend stay. Nothing could beat the night sky and sunset views from the deck, absolutely amazing! Thanks again
Fabulous Labor Day Vacation
We are on the way home from a long weekend at this property, and I'm already wondering when we can come back! This home is beautiful, spacious, clean and very well appointed! The beds are comfy, the pool is amazing, and the out door shower is ridiculous!! We were 6 adults and six kids and had plenty of room to spread out, or get back together for a meal in the giant kitchen or outdoor porch.
The only things that would make this trip better would be wi-fi (kids were a little wound up that they could not connect), and more hand towels/wash cloths. Otherwise the place was decked out-from a Bose system, to a Kitchen Aid mixer, to cupcake tins and an electric griddle!
The views were gorgeous, and the quiet time was heavenly. Tom-Thanks so much for opening your home and allowing us a weekend full of fun, laughs, and memories! We home to come back again soon!!
