Northeast Kingdom Chamber of Commerce Business Directory
Baker Hill House
This wonderful home, constructed in the traditional plank wall style of the early 1800s, was built from timbers harvested on the land. It operated as a farm for more than 100 years. The house has now been restored without losing its simple charm. Warm and cozy, quiet and secluded, yet quite accessible.
The home features 1,800-square-feet of well appointed living space, sprinkled with bright decor and antique touches that make the property feel spacious and warm. Nestled away from the busy city, you'll have ample outdoor space to enjoy and a quiet place to return to.
Get a taste of Greensboro when you drive four minutes up the road to the world renowned Hill Farmstead Brewery. The brewery has produced several of the top-rated beers and ales in the world over the past several years. Folks travel from all over to visit Hill Farmstead and stock up with its fine products. Bring your purchases back to the house and enjoy them on the deck on a warm summer day.
Another world-renowned business in town is The Cellars at Jasper Hill. Their cheese, which receives international awards, is available at Willey's Store, in the center of the village across from Caspian Lake beach. Willey's is an amazing general store that you will tell all your friends about and revisit often. Check out the hardware, clothing, grocery, and vast wine selections, with many local products rounding out the unique selections.
Circus Smirkus, our own hometown youth circus, is located at the entrance to Greensboro. Enjoy a performance under the big top in July, before the group goes on tour, or in August, when the group returns.
On hot summer days, visit Caspian Lake, just a mile and a half from the house in the village. This 800-acre lake is one of the few spots where visitors can boat, water-ski, kayak and swim on the shores. Bring your bathing suit and spend the day relaxing in the pristine inland waters. In the winter, it is know for its ice fishing.
A mile from the house to the west is Barr Hill, a nature preserve with gorgeous vistas. This is a popular hiking destination in town, as is Long Pond, a one-mile hike from its trailhead two miles up the road from the house.
Just on the outskirts of the village is the new Highland Center for the Arts, a magnificent theater complex featuring concerts, plays, an art gallery and a cafe with a bar.
The charming town of Craftsbury is just 17 minutes away, located in the heart of the Northeast Kingdom. Venture over on a Sunday for weekly summer concerts on the common.
In the winter, the Craftsbury Outdoor Center offers a vast network of cross-country ski trails. These trails are accessible in Greensboro, 10 minutes from the house. Ski rentals are available at the center.
