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.

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
The cabin has a rustic feel to it , yet has all the basics that you need .
Quiet peaceful location overlooking the lake .
Leaving the Texas heat for the month of August we headed for the cool of Vermont. We found the small living area and roomy screened porch on this little cabin a perfect retreat. There was such quiet that the lapping of wavelets just below the bedroom window often lulled us to sleep. If you are looking for quiet, peaceful seclusion, this is your spot. There are other cabins fairly close but because of the woods you can sip your morning coffee on the porch in you robe, with relative privacy. We also found the location ideal. You are just a hop, skip and a jump from groceries in Vergennes and an easy drive to Burlington for nicer restaurants and entertainment. We hit everything from the oxen pull at the state fair to a ferry ride to NewYork for lunch. On the more practical side, this is your basic lake cabin. There are no frills, no closets and the kitchen is a little limited and set up for only basic cooking needs. Since we were there a month and enjoy cooking we had to get creative, but for weekend camp type cooking, it would be fine. There is community BBQ equipment along with a nice assortment of water toys …. kayaks etc. available . Our biggest problem was Jim has mobility issues and parking is at the top of a little hill or if you park at the cabin you have to juggle a bit to get in and may have to move the car if someone wants by … which only happened once. For those with mobility issues, the ground is uneven, with fairly steep steps into the cabin … for most visitors it would not be a problem. There is a herd of cattle close by so that lends to the aromatic ambience from time to time. All and all, we had a lovely time with wonderful weather, a pretty view of the lake …it is a great place to work on your computer (they have wifi but no TV, just Netflix), write or just enjoy a good book.
We so love this place and can't recommend it enough.
The location is fantastic...we loved being right on the lake.
We left yesterday and we miss it already. Calming, peaceful, and the wonderful sound of the lake when you fall asleep at night right out your window. It brings you back to the family cottages of times gone by. Suzanne could not have been a nicer host.
