Why Suzanne Hinsdale chose Ferrisburgh
Simply put, Bayview Farm is one of the most beautiful places on the planet. The Bay itself is quiet and relatively shallow, making it a bit warmer than other parts of the lake, and making for remarkable fishing, boating, and all forms of water sports.
What makes this Cabin unique
Bayview Farm Is A Unique Property. It Was Originally One Of The Governors Lots In The Hampshire Grants (before Vermont Was Vermont) And Has Remained The Same Farm Ever Since (with One Very Minor Boundary Adjustment To Repair Crooked Lines). It Has Only Been Owned By Two Families Ever, And It Has Been Serving Guests Since 1890, When The Roof Was Raised In The Main House 'to Take In Borders'. The First Cabin Was Also Built Around That Time. What This Translates To Now Is That The Place Has A Timeless Quality, A Place To Vacation Much Like People Have Been Doing For 100 Years. It Also Has A Stunning Natural Beauty That Caused It To Be Chosen So Long Ago As The Spot That The Governor Wanted To Keep For Himself. As Soon As You Arrive Here, You Are Immediately Struck With The Reasons Travelers And Locals Have Been Staying At Bayview Farm For Over A Century.

Cozy cabin and friendly proprietor
The view from the deck nourishes the soul! Cabin itself is adequate, you can prepare meals and relax comfortably. For longer stays, beware there is no on-site laundry and no cable / satellite TV (if you are interested in staying current with news / shows), and no keys to lock up the place when you are gone (might not be needed here anyway). Aside from that, the proprietor was super friendly and eager to provide anything you might need. The fireplace makes for wonderful atmosphere, and if you are looking to get away this is a great place to do it!
We travelled from there to several destinations both north east, and south. It is a good home base for taking in lots of different sights.
This cabin is in a great spot, is super clean, has comfy furniture for relaxing, and good tables for eating, and playing games. The beach is good for boating, and swimmming once you’re out a bit.
This location provides great access to hikes, swimming holes, and omg the food! We hope to come back.
We loved everything about this cabin.
For water sports of all kinds, for cycling, for enjoying nature, for peace and quiet, this cabin on Town Farm Bay is fantastic. We loved the rustic nature of the place too.
Quaint,rustic cabin anyone would enjoy who appreciates history and the ability to relax .
Excellent host. It was a great stay. Clean and comfortable. For a person wanting to get away from it all, read, relax and not listen to the noise of traffic it is great. It was a little difficult for fisherman with boats due to the parking situation but the host managed the situation well. No docks for boats so going to a launch every morning was a bit cumbersome. It was my own fault for not asking the right questions before booking. The fishing from the ledges and rocks on shore was good and you could not find a more scenic spot both looking towards land or out at the lake.
Had a great time. The hosts have created a beautiful environment for enjoying the lake.
quiet beautiful location

Quiet peaceful location overlooking the lake .
