About Sandra and Michael Fisher

A big hello to our guests from Michael and Sandra. Here is a little info about the proud owners of Paradise on Daniels Pond, aka Terrapin Station. We both were born and raised in the beautiful country suburbs of Phila, Pa, Michael in Chester Springs and Sandra in Yardley, and we are both grads of Penn State. Go State! Although we did not know each other until 2003, when the wonderful internet then brought us together, yes it does work! While building Terrapin Station, we would stay at the enchanted Inn on the Common in the picturesque town of Craftsburry Common, VT. Here we became engaged and then off to the chapel on the Common to marry in 2006. We now reside in our Pa dream home, a restored farmhouse circa 1812, in the quaint town of Birchrunville, with our 2 goats Templeton and Archie, our 3 cats Curious, A.J. and Chi, and of course the kids-young adults, Alexander, Connor and Taylor. And yes Michael is a long time fan of the Grateful Dead and Sandra, the Rolling Stones.

Sandra and Michael Fisher purchased this house in 2006

Why Sandra and Michael Fisher chose Northeast Kingdom

Ahh, Vermont. The beauty of all that nature has to offer at its best! We both were fortunate to experience the wonders of Vermont in our earlier years. Michael's first entre to the Kingdom was in 1978, with one of several visits to the renown Bread and Puppet Theater in Glover. Wanting more of this beautiful state, Michael moved to Waitsfield from 1982 - 1985, working at Sugarbush, loving every moment. Sandra's first of many visits was in 1980 with her childhood friend who grew up spending summer and winter vacations at their lake house near Rutland. Skiing Killington, Okemo, Magic, bushwacking, water skiing, skating, hiking and loving it!. On to the year 2005 when we were ready to find our second dream home. We had Vermont in our hearts and knew that our desire to have serenity, beauty, privacy, the wonders of nature, and year round outdoor activities were all in this beautiful state. So we went for it and began the search and found our piece of paradise on the internet, and in Glover, where it all began! Yes, the internet has been good to us. At the time the property was a rough clearing with a foundation on 55 wooded acres, with an unbelieveable view of the water and mountains, and 1800 feet of shoreline, just absolutely beautiful. Feb of 2006 our dream home was ready. The first knock on our door were our pond neighbors Linda and Arthur, who welcomed us and offered their hospitality and to stop by anytime. This is what the people of the Kingdom are all about. In 2010 we were ready to offer our home to others to be able to enjoy this magical place. The Kingdom is One of the Most Beautiful Places in America. We are very thankful!

Guestbook comments from the owner

To put it in the words of my sister, "This is heaven on earth". We booked the house so that we could have some down time with my sister who was visiting from overseas. To begin with the entire booking process was simple and easy. spoke with Sandra on the phone & worked everything out. We received an information package from her that was invaluable with excellent suggestions. The home was very comfortable for the 8 of us. The views were priceless. Waking up in the morning with the sun caressing you through the big windows & having a cup of coffee on the veranda watching the mist over the water was wonderful. All of us from the young to the old had something to do. Our son & I fished the entire time. he even went out to fish in the rain! The Fishers generously provided many games to keep us entertained when it rained outside. We took the suggestions & tried a lot of the local restaurants. Parsons soon became our favoite. Chef Dave even gave me a recipe for making perch which came out excellent! The house was immaculate and decorated to make you feel welcomed and comfortable. Again in the words of my sister "What a memorable house & vacation!" Thank you for allowing us the use of your beautiful home and we look forward to being back soon.

One of Our Best Vacations!

  • 5 of 5

My family plus another (4 adults and 4 kids total) just spent a wonderful week at Terrapin Station. It was unanimous - we all loved the house and NE Vermont. The house was clean and furnished very nicely and very comfortable. it was "move in" ready when we arrived. All beds are made. Lots of towles provided. Little amenities like laundry and kitchen detergent, paper products, fire wood and games, etc. are all provided too.

The property itself is beautiful and well maintained. We canoed many times each day and fell in love with the pond life - a beaver, a pair of loons, geese family and even a big brown hare jumped through the yard a few times. We explored all the little towns - shopped at Willy's in Greensboro for food and cheeses. We checked out Hill Farmstead Brewery (of course brought goodies home from there). The bike riding was great - day tripped it to Kingdom Trails in E. Burk. For all serious Mt. bikers, this is a MUST! Also hiked the Willoughby Lake Gorge and White Mts. in New Hampshire (about an hour drive).

The owners were gracious and attentive. Thanks to them for sharing this lovely home. I would defintely recommend this house to other families and plan to return sometime hopefully soon.

Owner's Response: We know we say this frequently, but we are so thankful for you to have experienced the magic of Terrapin Station and the "Kingdom"! As you said "it was unanimous, we all loved the house and NE Vermont". That is what it is all about and what we strive for, to make Terrapin Station your home and for there to be all that you need to enjoy, for the very special young ones to the wonderful grand parents. How awesome that you also experienced so much of the Kingdom's beauty and attractions. This is why the NEK is so deserving of being on the list in "1000 Places To See Before You Die"! Thank you so much for sharing ""One of Our Best Vacations", with us and for the gracious compliments. Have a wonderful summer and we look forward to having you back! Warmly, Sandra and Michael

Peaceful retreat in a beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just got back from a week's vacation up in Glover VT at Terrapin Station. We had a fantastic time and the house was absolutely beautiful! Our hosts Sandra and Michael are extremely considerate and the house had every amenity and need easily met. The property it sits on is breathtaking beautiful and quite peaceful. I would easily recommend this house for anyone looking to get away and experience Vermont.

So gorgeous and serene!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time up at Terrapin - despite a week of dreary weather, we loved our stay, both the house and the property. The lawn and pond are truly spectacular! Sandra should give lessons on managing a rental property because there's nothing she hasn't planned for and provided. We felt right at home and, simultaneously, like we were staying in a hotel. Life doesn't get any better.

Beautiful Place to Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house and property were beautiful and had everything we needed for a lovely vacation! Sandra was great to work with - she sent an information packet ahead of time with all the details we needed to know about the location of the house (things to do/places to see) and what was in the house (phone, appliances, canoe, games, etc). We had a wonderful and realizing vacation on the pond - en enjoyed playing board games, sitting on the porch, visiting a couple local restaurants and breweries, and swimming!
