About the property

Dreaming of a Romantic Get Away filled with peace, tranquility & nature?

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 so you can enjoy the natural and unspoiled beauty of the Northeast Kingdom during 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 water", 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)

About Kristi & Ed Bride, Owners

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!

Kristi & Ed Bride, Owners purchased this house in 2012

Why Kristi & Ed Bride, Owners chose Northeast Kingdom

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!

What makes this house unique

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?

The best in the NOrth East Kingdom

  • 5 of 5

We just spent over 100 days at the Getaway Cottage enjoying the best of NEK in VT. We could not ask for a more comfortable cottage to serve as our home enjoying the snow and cold outside and for the wife to experience snowshoeing, ice fishing, sleigh ride, snowmobiling and attending a small town church in Glover and West Glover. It was the perfect place to finish writing my memoirs and the wife to complete 30 quilt tops. I encourage families to spend at least 30 days in VT for either the fall colors or winter snow and this cottage is the best place to be. It was warm, cozy, great beds, fantastic views from the big windows and close to the VT attractions. Ed and Kristie will ensure you have a pleasant place to stay and respond to your needs. We will be back and bring the great grand kids to play it the snow. Thanks Ed and Kristie.

Owner's Response: Dear Al & Barbara, The best compliment we can get is a guest returning to stay with us again....and for 100 more days, wow! You seemed so happy at the cottage - Barbara quilting and you writing in the loft overlooking the pond, all comfy, cozy and warm inside, just watching the snow fall (and fall and fall). And Barbara was worried it might not snow :) Glad you got to check off several things on your bucket list like special family time in VT, snowshoeing and horse drawn sleigh ride. Thank you for being such amazing guests and loving the cottage like we do! Cheers, Kristi & Ed

The best place to be in Glover, VT

  • 5 of 5

The fall colors were outstanding, the mornings on the Daniels Pond brought peace to the inner soul. None of this could have been possible without the great hosts, Ed and Krisiti Bride. We were made welcome the minute we arrived to include the time we left some 46 days later. The cottage felt like home to us from day one. The beds slept great, the kitchen well equiped with all needed pots and pans. The view of the pond from the porch and boat trips around the pond, using their boats, and visiting the beaver trails and beaver house was memories that will last forever. Watching the two grown loons and the young one feed during the day was a joy. We loved it (the cottage and Hosts) so much that we will return in Nov, from Texas, to spend the winter in VT (four months) at this cottage. We were a short drive from Canada, local stores, restaurants, church, and any activity that we might be interested in seeing or doing. Ed and Krisiti cared about us as humans, not just a renter.

Owner's Response: Dear Al & Barbara, What a special couple you are! We loved having you during the entire fall season at the pond - getting to know you, enjoying a meal together and hearing the story of how you met. We are so glad we got to share the cottage with you and the amazing fall colors! (especially since it was Barbara's FIRST autumn in Vermont) Can't wait to have you back for the whole winter - see you in a few weeks! Cheers, Kristi & Ed

Perfect Lake Cottage for Relaxing and Water Play

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week at Kristi and Ed's cottage. Great place to unwind and relax. The cottage, clean with very comfortable beds is located on a beautiful pond that is perfect for quiet water boating and wild life viewing. We were fortunate to see loons, an otter and a bald eagle. The cottage is well stocked with basic necessities such as coffee and spices and basic meal prep ingredients. The owners were very welcoming and excited to share their knowledge about the area with us. They also provided wonderful special touches such as fresh flowers and a welcome basket of goodies upon arrival that included local maple syrup. The cottage itself is all we could have hoped for, and more! We would highly recommend it!

Owner's Response: Dear Chris, Rachel and family, All the wildlife came out for you guys - eagles, loons and otters. There is nothing better than sitting by the water, enjoying nature. Simplicity and relaxation in large doses - glad you and your family enjoyed it so much. We love exceeding our guests expectations! See you soon, Cheers, Kristi & Ed

Quiet family getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful week at The Getaway Cottage. Kristi and Ed were attentive hosts and ensured we had everything we needed and a few extras as well. The cottage is well stocked, clean and extremely comfortable. The lakefront had a gentle slope into the water, good for easing yourself into or for guiding in the boat or canoe. We brought a paddle board with us which was another great way to explore the lake. The fact that power boats are not permitted allows for a more relaxing stay. The cottage is equipped with a modern television with Direct TV and extremely good WiFi service. There is also a land line with free calls in the US. This proved vital for us as there is no cell service in the area. The cottage also contains a binder with incredibly useful information about the area and places to explore. It is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the breathtaking Vermont scenery. I can’t compliment Kristi and Ed enough for their commitment and generosity, and for creating such a pleasant experience for us.

Most Peaceful Place In New England

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely lake house in northern Vermont. Our family of four comfortably stayed in this well equipped house for a week of blissful relaxation. The owners, Kristi and Ed, have thought of every thing you may need from canoes, lifejackets, floats, face clothes, beach towels and potholders!

The senery is breathtaking, the pond is pristine and the memories will last a lifetime!

Clean, beautiful, tranquil - perfect for a restful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent five restful days here with our family of five. The beauty of this property is that you can spend most of your time outside if the weather permits which is such a luxury --- reading in the hammock with the gentle waves lapping right beneath you, boating, swimming and playing croquet. If you are aching for a simple get away on a beautiful, clean pond with a sweet house this is a great spot. The water was lovely and I swam every morning. Kristi was a very accommodating hostess, the house had all the amenities you needed and the beds were incredibly comfortable. This is the kind of place you daydream about in the midst of a hectic work day!

Thank you so much for a lovely family vacation! We look forward to returning next year.

Owner's Response: Dear Diane and Family, You guys got the best weather to enjoy relaxing in the hammock and chilling on the dock! I'm so glad you found our quiet private cottage to "unplug", do some yoga on the waterfront and just unwind for some old fashioned family time. We'd love to have you back! Cheers, Kristi & Ed
