Property description

How can one choose between the sunrise, the beautiful canoe and row boat rides during the day or the unbelievable summer sunsets? Luckily, you don't have to, they are all right in front of you when you stay in our Getaway Cottage on Daniels Pond! Available for year round rentals to enjoy the natural and unspoiled beauty of the Northeast Kingdom - Winter, Spring, Summer & Fall.

Have you ever stayed at a mountain top lake? Daniels Pond is a little slice of Vermont heaven - a perfect place to enjoy some peace and tranquility. It is a nature lovers delight!

The cottage is waterfront, with the shoreline only steps from the door. It has an open floor plan with natural cedar walls, exposed wood beams and views of the water and mountains at every turn. This fully appointed lakefront home, ideally for couples, small group of friends or small family with children over 8 yrs. It has easy one level living with a bedroom on the main floor, perfect for older couples.

It is located in an area known as the Northeast Kingdom, named by the National Geographic Center for Sustainable Destinations as one of the most desirable places to visit in the United States. Daniels Pond is a 66 acre pond of quiet, pristine water, well known for the spectacular, romantic sunsets. It's quiet, in part because Vermont does not allow powerboats or jet skis here.

Enjoy snowshoeing, skiing, fishing, swimming, use of our canoe, row boat and 2 pool floats. Feel free to bring your own kayaks as it takes about an hour to paddle around the pond. Right outside your door is the level yard, picnic table, private dock and shoreline. The cottage is located on a very quiet dead end road. A great place to walk, play, ride bikes, explore the back roads and enjoy the water. This is a majestic place that gives you a wonderful sense of getting back to nature and enjoying the simple pleasures of life. Gorgeous Fall Foliage colors intensify and change every day, right in front of your eyes!

Why not just sit back and relax, watch the clouds go by and gaze up at the stars each night....when was the last time you did that? Don't you deserve A Getaway?

(The property is not suitable for children under 8 yrs old)

Also just a 30 min drive to Burke Mountain for Skiing/Riding & world class mountain biking. And, Stowe Mountain Resort is less than one hour.

In the summer bring your mountain bikes to ride Glover's dirt back roads and hills around the cottage or head over to Kingdom Trails in East Burke (fee) for IMBA 'Epic' rated trails & lift serviced downhill runs at Burke Mountain. If a road bike is your passion, try the (25/50 or) century rides along Route 16 passing the gorgeous hills and valleys of the Northeast Kingdom.

Those that would like to explore Quebec, remember to BRING YOUR PASSPORTS! The Canadian border is only 35 minutes away, where you can experience the Eastern Townships in the Province of Quebec, We love to explore the small Wineries, shops and brasserie's in and around the towns of Magog, Fitch Bay & Stanstead. In July, our favorite is the Lavender Farm, "Bleu Lavande" for amazing relaxation, massages, music and local lavender products. Also, venture to Montreal for the casino, Jazz Festival, F1 Canadian Grad Prix, Just For Laughs comedy festival and more, it's just a 2 hour drive away!

Take a day trip to Stowe/Waterbury and visit Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream, stop by Cold Hollow Cider Mill, Cabot Cheese Annex, Green Mountain Coffee and Lake Champlain Chocolates to round out your must have VT Food & Drink day! Plan ahead to pick up your Heady Topper from The Alchemist on its delivery day to a local store.

Shop at Currier's Quality Market, a real VT General Store & Post Office - (6mi) or a small town C&C Supermarket (8mi) for your grocery needs. Visit the Hill Farmstead Brewery (Greensboro) for top rated microbrew and Caledonia Spirits famous Barr Hill Gin and Vodka (Hardwick). You must have the pizza at The Parker Pie Co (W. Glover) and then you'll know why Food Network Magazine called it one of 'America's 50 Best Pizzas'.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: The owners, Kristi & Ed are from VT. We have been married for more than 30 years and love this calm retreat that is our 'secret' on Daniels Pond. We grew up an hour away from Glover, near Montpelier, the capital city. Kristi has been visiting the pond with family since she was a very little girl. We like to shop at at Currier's Store, Pete's Greens Farm Stand and Burtt's Apple Orchard. You might pass us on the Mt. Pisgah hiking trail, bid against us at an Albany auction or catch us floating the sunny afternoon away on the pond. We have fun by chasing a golf ball down the Westmore golf course, standing in line for an ice cream at Pick & Shovel and eating a Strawberry Shortcake at the Irasburg Church Fair. One of our summer favorites (July) is a day trip to Fitch Bay (Quebec-so bring your passport) where wineries and Bleu Lavande (Lavender Farm Fields) are located. We love exploring the towns of the Northeast Kingdom (and Eastern Townships of Quebec) and all they have to offer. We love winter too, Skiing at Jay Peak and Burke Mountain and show shoeing around the pond on snowy day followed by a glass of wine in front of the fire!

Why the Owner Chose Glover, VT, USA:
We love the beautiful and unspoiled location, the quiet sounds of the Pond and close proximity to mountains and small towns. From May to October we like to shop for vegetables, eggs and more at farm stands on the side of the road and the many local Farmers Markets. Visit local country stores, small family owned shops, county fairs, festivals & church suppers. Make time to check out the Bread & Puppet Theater Museum, Circus Smirkus, Craftsbury Chamber Players as well as the many artists that reside in the area. This is where you get outside to enjoy hiking, biking, fishing and boating on some of the most beautiful land & water anywhere. In the fall, the leaves change color and the foliage is legendary - you have to see it to believe it! From December through April, skiing/riding Jay Peak, Burke Mountain or Stowe, and snowshoeing, ice skating and snowmobiling are available throughout the area. Jay Peak also has a huge, amazing indoor water park that is open year round! Each spring brings the 'Maple Sugar Season' where the famous VT Maple Syrup 'Liquid Gold' is bottled for all to enjoy on pancakes, ice cream & more!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Daniels Pond is so beautiful and this cottage was hand built in the 1980's by Kristi's Dad. He cut down the cedar trees on the lot and used them to build the cottage-all the wood you see inside, he put up by hand! As you can see it is waterfront and has a small sandy beachfront on the edge of the pond, perfect for wading in the water slowly or sitting on the dock and kicking your feet. In the winter, it's perfect for Snowshoeing, Ice Fishing and Cross Country Skiing on the pond. This is a magical place to relax, reconnect with nature (and each other) and get away from it all. Don't you deserve A Getaway on Daniels Pond?
