Why Owner chose Greensboro
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.
What makes this Cottage unique
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.

A perfect trip down memory lane for my family and I
I grew up visiting my Grandparent's cottage on Caspian Lake every year. I decided to re-create one of those long ago summers for my own family and rented this cottage. It was absolutely perfect! The cottage is charming and timeless and the location offers both a great sandy beach and a short walk to Willey's General Store and the rest of tiny Greensboro. The cottage is an authentic 1930s lake "camp" so it's rustic and definitely not fancy. However, it was clean and well stocked with everything we could need, the beds were comfortable and the decor adorable. The owners were easy to communicate with and very accommodating. I will absolutely visit again!
Classic and comfortable on Caspian
Wonderful summer camp with a lot of history but also the amenities you would want and a lovely beach
Thanks for another charming escape to Greensboro, Caspian Lake and Vermont's Northeast Kingdom!
As usual, our grown family enjoyed a memorable Greensboro reprieve — a vacation spot that time forgot. The main house is a classic Adirondack-style summer cottage with a massive fireplace and lovely porch overlooking Caspian Lake. Its private beach leads to majestic mountains defining the horizon. Nights are cool and restful, filled with ink-black skies, brilliant stars, and soothing sounds of water lapping against boats and shoreline.
The cottage's interior appointments are ample and comfortable, while nostalgic and spare. We love the sense of slipping back into a simpler time that this vacation spot evokes, along with its momentos from earlier generations and important leaders who summered in this place.
The location feels isolated yet convenient — walkable to town for an ice cream cone or additional provisions. Nearby Mountain View Country Club offers a friendly, relaxed 9-hole golf course and 7 tennis courts, served by a beautiful new clubhouse with rambling porches and wicker rocking chairs.
Complimentary wireless internet is available throughout the clubhouse. Cell service around Greensboro is spotty at best — conducive to unplugging for vacation. The land line in the cottage kitchen works just fine when a call is needed.
All in all, it is a delightful place and touchstone to a bygone era, reminding us of what really matters.
Thank you, Kent and Denise, and we are glad you enjoyed your time in our home in Greensboro.
We loved the Vermont charm of the natural surroundings, the cottage, and the lake with walk out beach. We immediately slowed our pace with this historic cabin, the beautiful fireplace, the quiet of living at the lake, nearby local adventures, and the country gardens. We enjoyed each meal on the covered lake front porch, incredible sunsets, and the fun of ping pong, canoeing, scrabble, and all without any outside interruption. Every room had its own charm and individual character taking you back to a simpler time.
Thank you for letting us know how much you enjoyed Caspian Lake last summer. Great reminders of activities even we have forgotten to do sometimes!
