About Kris Francis
Originally purchased by Bart and Marge Simpson (really!), Simpson's High Meadow is now run by the second generation and their families.
Kris Francis purchased this House in 1964
Why Kris Francis chose Jericho
This retreat is designed for families to relax together. In the warmer months parents can gather around the outdoor fireplace hang-out by the fire or on the dock while the kids play in the pond or the field, all within view. In the winter, the pond can be flooded for skating and there are steep hills nearby for the construction of 'toboggan runs,' while the younger kids stay warm by the outdoor fireplace near the cabin.

Our Stay was Very Comfortable.
We enjoyed our stay very much. It's always nice to get outa work and be able to relax and cook your own food while living on the road. This property was Perfect. We also enjoyed being able to have a fire outside. (Sorry we Burned So much wood).
I would definitely consider staying Here with my family for a getaway...
Thank you for the experience....
We had a great stay, enjoying spending time with family while we were here. Plenty of room to spread out, play games on the grass, hide and sneak for the kids. The leaches around the swimming pond made us a little squeamish but kids still all jumped in the lake from the dock and enjoyed playing on the paddleboard, and no one ended up with a leach on them. They also had fun using the nets to catch the frogs and other things around the pond edge. The kitchen was well stocked and there were lots of board games, books and puzzles to enjoy around the property. It did take a little while to drive to the property because of its private location but it was beautiful once you got there.
A magical place!
I cannot say enough about this amazing spot. From the pond, to the view of the mountains, to the outdoor kitchen, to the beautiful interior of the main house, this place has everything you could want in a vacation stay and much much more. We had a wonderful time with our family and friends barbecuing, enjoying the incredible setting, swimming in the pond and just relaxing in the splendor of beautiful Vermont. The house has everything needed for a great stay, lots of space, comfortable beds, a well equipped kitchen, and tons of charming character. It was also really clean and well cared for.
The property manager Kris was incredibly helpful and responsive, answering all our questions and making sure we had everything we needed. Thank you Kris!!!
I really can’t say enough about how wonderful this place is. We feel really grateful and privileged to have had the opportunity to stay here. And we hope to do so again!
This was a great place for our family reunion. Plenty of space. A great outdoor area. The kids loved the pond and running around.
It was everything the descriptions said it was. Scott was a great
My wife said, "I could do this every year... for a month!" The kids(7 + 2 spouses) thought I "nailed it" with this pick. That pretty much tells the story.
Scott was an awesome host! Our large group enjoyed his home and the amenities he had to offer. The house was large enough to accommodate our group comfortably. We loved how quiet and peaceful it was at his house. The one thing we enjoyed the most was hanging out by the fire and the pond. The location of his house was a short distance to Burlington. We will definitely stay at Scott's home beautiful home again.
