Glover House Rental Photos and Description
Dreaming of a Getaway filled with peace and tranquility?
How can one choose between the sunrise, the beautiful canoe and row boat rides during the day or the unbelievable 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!
Have you ever stayed at a mountain top lake? Daniels Pond is a little slice of Vermont heaven - a perfect location 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 cedar walls, exposed wood beams and views of the water and mountains at every turn. This fully appointed lakefront home comfortably sleeps 6 people (including children).
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 the 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 for couples and families to walk, play, ride bikes 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.
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?

Kristi & Ed Bride, Owners
The owners, Kristi & Ed are from VT. We have been married for more than 25 years and love our 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 little girl. You might run into us at Currier's Store or Pete's Greens Farm Stand. Maybe you would pass us on the Mt. Pisgah trail, bid against us at an Albany auction or catch us floating the afternoon away on the pond. We have fun chasing a golf ball down the Westmore golf course, standing in line for an ice cream at the Pick & Shovel and eating a Strawberry Shortcake at the Irasburg Church Fair. One of our favorite places in July is Fitch Bay (Quebec-so bring your passport) where wineries and Bleu Lavande (Lavender Fields) are located. We enjoy exploring the towns of the Northeast Kingdom (and Eastern Townships of Quebec) and all they have to offer.
The Central Location! 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 in the summer 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!
Daniels Pond is so beautiful and this cottage was hand built in the 1980's by Kristi's Dad with cedar trees he cut down. 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?
