There is an open concept in the downstairs living space. The kitchen has all the equipment that you need to prepare meals. A gas grill is located outside for your convenience as well as a picnic table. The downstairs bedroom has it's own private bathroom with tub/shower combination. The two bedrooms each have queen size beds and full closets as well as dressers for your stay. The bathroom has a large shower stall with grip bars and the laundry room is down the hall across from the bedroom. There is a safety gate for little ones at the top of the stairs. Our favorite room is the front porch that is totally screened in. You can have drinks or share a meal on the porch or just swing on the porch swing. The house has many gardens and guest are invited to cut flowers for their enjoyment.

Guest have use of all the property, dock, boats, hammock and fishing poles. There is parking space for two cars.

If you need help or have questions we are across the road from the cottage. We will happily help with any questions or needs that you have and still give you all the privacy that you desire.

The cottage is located on a small dirt road off the main road and is very private. There are 20 plus cottages around the pond. One section of the pond is not used for homes and there you can see a beaver hut, blue herons fishing, the loons and sometimes if you are lucky even our resident bald eagle. We have seen deer drinking from the pond at the edge of the woods and even had a couple of moose swim across the pond. Nature abounds.

We are just minutes away for Parker Pie which is noted for it's amazing pizza. Newport is 26 miles away and offers many good restaurants some of which are located right on Lake Memorphmagog. Newport is right on the Canadian border so bring your passports along if you plan to venture into Canada. Newport has all the amenities of a small city with hospitals, stores, shops, garages, ect. We are also close to Jay Peak and Burke Mountain. Both places have biking trails, gondola rides, golf and Jay has a world class indoor water park. Stowe Village is 45 minutes away and is a historic ski town with shops, restaurants, art galleries and miles of walking and or biking path that weaves around and through the town. There are numerous and varied micro breweries and wine operations with tastings available in the area. We have loads of travel brochures to help with your activity planning on site and are happy to help you with suggestions.

Internet is available but cell service is sketchy. We have a land line that guest can use at no cost. We will give out the number when you book incase you have family or friends that would like to reach you.

This is a beautiful home in a lovely little community. The pond is excellent for swimming and kayaking, and Nickie and Francis are on hand to help out with anything you may need. I just wish we were able to spend more time here!

Staying at "Memory Maker" is like stepping into a storybook experience. Nickie and Francis are lovely hosts - gracious, generous, and so easy to work with. We really feel like we've made true friends in them. The house is absolutely stunning and, frankly, it would be impossible to capture its true beauty and the peacefulness of the setting in just a few photos. The "pond" that the house is on is actually a beautiful lake by our standards and we and our kids made the most of it. There were kayaks, paddle boards (really repurposed windsurfers), and a wonderful float with a big slide that kept us all busy day after day. A lakeside fire pit was an enormous hit with the entire family and Nickie and Francis were kind enough to leave us wood and the fixings for s'mores when we first arrived. This was just a small example of the effort they put in to make our stay both relaxing and complete. The kitchen is ready for the inspired cook and the bedding experience is 5 star. The level of care in the home is as if your best friend invited you their lakefront home and turned over the keys. The home is decorated with Nickie's inspired paintings and the fact that this home is handmade by the owners is the reason that visitors feel at home. Overall, we can't be effusive enough with our praise and we can't wait to go back. This is airbnb at its dream best!

Lisa and Grant we feel the same way. We missed you and the kids so much the next day, felt like you took the sun with you. Anytime you are ready to come back we would be so happy to see your smiling faces again. Thank you for the wonderful review and the glowing report it is much appreciated. We will be tweaking the description and fine tuning the site thanks to your input. Good luck with your move and keep in touch. Always Nickie and Francis P.S. Thank you for doing all the sheets and towels and all your cleaning, really you spoiled us for anyone else who comes.

This stay at Nicole's and Francis place was fantastic. Our family weren't initially planning to hang out at the house as we were on vacation visiting old friends, but after being there and experiencing the tranquility of Daniels pond and having access to all the amenities (row boat, kayaks, firepit, pond, flippers etc) we decided to spend more time at home. It was a perfect getaway and Nicole and Francis were amazing hosts. They tried to accommodate us at every turn (offering fishing equipment, firewood, food supplies and any assistance we might need). These wonderful folks really made our stay an outstanding memory. I believe that their listing doesn't do the place justice, as it was more laid back, far nicer, cleaner, friendlier, and more fun than you get from the listing. Just do yourself a favor and book this place. ..you won't regret it. I am happy to say Nicole and Francis were once our rental hosts...now after only 3 days they are are friends. Thank you.

Bob and family we couldn't have had better guest! We are both so happy that you would feel so at home and that you just wanted to stay and enjoy the benefits of pond life. One can never have too many friends especially ones like yourselves. Come back anytime, we'd love to see you all again. NIckie and Francis

Memory Maker is the perfect Vermont getaway for both the indoor and outdoor family. Its lovely waterfront location and beautifully decorated house create the perfect setting for your vacation. For the water lover, there are kayaks, a rowboat, and a dock, as well as a rock ringed campfire site ready for s’mores and ghost stories. Some of us curled up on the screened in porch with a good book and looked out at the lake, sipping our morning coffee. Others took pictures of all the birds, bunnies, minks, and chipmunks. We ventured out onto the lake in kayaks. We ordered pizza from Parker Pie and enjoyed the wine, cheese, and crackers left by our host and hostess. Once you’ve stocked up at the local market, you can prepare anything in the kitchen. Nikki and Francis were happy to help with anything we needed. They are directly across the street, so we knew we were in good hands.
