Very close to Harvey Lake. There is a public beach with parking and lake access just 1/2 mile to the east. A very scenic location very popular with leaf-peepers in the Fall, hikers and bike riders from Spring to Fall, kayaking in the Summer, and general sight seeing and photography all year long. Located in the heart of The North East Kingdom of Vermont. Suggested Local Attractions: The nearby town of St. Johnsbury is noted for The Athenium library, Fairbanks Museum, and Dog Mountain. Just to the north is Burke Mountain with renowned winter skiing and warmer weather mountain biking. Just five miles to the New Hampshire border.

We are inquisitive and active, there is always something new to learn and experience. Details: We are both retired and enjoy our corner of this quiet small northern Vermont town and sometimes travel far away. Home Town: Barnet only has 1706 people. All of Vermont only has 860,000 people, so as you can imagine most is pretty rural. There is a lake nearby that draws visitors from away in the summer, but it is much less populated in the winter. Although Burke Mountain just 40 minutes north is a popular skiing destination for New Englanders and Canadians in winter its also popular for mountain bikers for three seasons. This part of Vermont is mostly hilly forest and farmland. We are just 5.5 miles west of I-91 Exit 18, a major north-south thoroughfare between Massachusetts and Canada. Nearest towns of any substance (St. Johnsbury, Wells River, Woodsville, Lyndon, Burke) are 15-40 minutes away. Skills or Expertise to Share: We have experience and skills in communication, mechanical things (think MacGyver), and problem solving of all kinds and enjoy interacting with people..

Quiet and dark night on top of the hill at Yardsailors place. Nice and friendly host - would have laid an extra long extension cord for me - but I didn’t need it! Good conversation between two Vespa fans!
