Elderberry Cottage is ideally located in our four season recreational, rural, and agricultural area. This is the perfect place to enjoy a quiet refuge to relax and renew or spend time outdoors skiing, hiking, walking,biking, swimming, or fishing.
The studio apartment is attached to our historic barn where Zorro the horse lives. Large windows offer lots of light and look south over fields surrounded by sugar maples and beyond to the peaceful hills of the Northeast Kingdom. You can also sit on the porch and read, relax, and take in natural beauty of the gardens and lawn sloping down to the pond. In the winter you can cross country ski on groomed trails at the Craftsbury Outdoor Center or 3 miles away on the Highland Lodge trails maintained by the COC. You can also ski through our woods and fields as we keep a track open all winter. Downhill skiing is also close by.
You will have full access to our private studio apartment which includes a kitchen equipped with the essentials, a sitting area to enjoy the vista, a queen size bed, a pullout sofa, and a private bathroom. Feel free to walk around our 100 acre farm, visit the animals, or swim in the pond.
We welcome interaction with our guests and we are happy to share our knowledge of the area. We can recommend hikes, neighboring attractions and local dining and other activities.
This is a wonderful location in which to enjoy all 4 seasons in Vermont.
We do not allow smoking in the studio or on the property. We value the environment so we ask that you recycle in the receptacles we provide.
I moved to Greensboro in my twenties to live close to the land. I started out dairy farming and maple sugaring and then went on to raise 2 kids and many horses, pigs, and chickens. I enjoy hiking, biking, cross country skiing, and kayaking on nearby Caspain Lake. I also love to garden, cook, and read. I work at Caledonia Spirits, an artisanal distillery in nearby Hardwick, the hub for local 'agropreneurs' of which there are many in our area like Caledonia Spirits, and my neighbors in Greensboro, the Cellars at Jasper Hill.
