The kitchen is well implemented for making simple or gourmet dinners and country breakfasts.. A claw foot tub in the bathroom, a perfect place to soak away stress. Fine 100% cotton towels and bed linens are provided.

It is a paradise for a romantic get-away, artists looking for the right light and enough space to capture it and even solo restorative retreats.

Unique Artist/Writer Retreat

When Summer is here, there is nothing like a country retreat when the gardens and farms are in high production and nothing to be concerned about except the choice between the hammock and an Adirondack chair and just which book to read first and maybe a little al fresco dining on the deck.

About Katherine Henry

We are artists and have our studios here on the property. Our home is also on the property, so we are around to help with questions about the area and if you need us for anything. We operate a small gallery in Chester, which for us, is a great way to meet new people and share ideas and art. We have lived all over the states, in all kinds of climates and atmospheres ( social and physical) and living here is like coming home, stepping into the perfect pair of fuzzy slippers... ahhhhhh yes, this is right.

Why Katherine Henry chose Chester

We chose this property simply because the moment we stepped out of the realtor's car, we knew, this was home. It is magical, pinch me, I can't believe I live here! Chester is a great little town, loads of character and characters! Shopping and groceries, a hub for the rest of the county and Southern Vermont. Really a great place to live and to visit.

What makes this barn unique

This place has a charm that brings people back

from as near as Ascutney and as far away as Okinawa.

We have had other returning guests from New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston, Philadelphia, Miami, Hartford, Buffalo, Colorado Springs, and Chattanooga.

It is all about the barn! We fell in love with this property over the MANY we viewed, mainly because of the barn, it's vaulted ceiling, it's solid presence and sense of space. In summer of 2013 she received a facelift and is now as beautiful outside as she has always be inside!

Artists..... Painters, Poets, Potters, Photographers, Writers, Musicians, Composers, Sculptors, Actors and Directors... and those wanting to explore all the possibilities ... There is plenty of studio space for you. Let us know ahead of time and we can work out the details. We do it all here!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at The Popple Dungeon apartment was fantastic to say the least! The apartment boasts solitude and a calming atmosphere. It is also complemented with nice scenery. Everything we needed was provided and the hosts made it a top priority to make sure we were comfortable. Definitely a great deal. I highly recommend this place for anyone who wants to kick back, unwind, and immerse themselves in the mountains of Vermont.

Atelier Annex

  • 5 of 5
We were lucky to spend three nights at the Atelier Annex this month and wish we could return on an annual basis! The barn apartment was perfect, and together with the surrounding forests and country roads, we decided to just explore the immediate area and not venture to other Vermont locations. Daily walks and cooking "at home" rather than going out to eat were especially pleasant after the first part of our trip, which included too much driving and changing accommodations each night. Although we had planned to go to the Vermont Country Store, we never made it there--but in retrospect our walk with our host and his dog Rothko in the nearby forest proved to be a much more meaningful experience! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we will be visiting Vermont and Popple Dungeon Road again in the not-too-distant future. This is truly a special place.

Charming and Cozy

  • 5 of 5
We often take extended weekend trips to get away from the busy grind of our daily lives and our weekend at the Atelier Annex was one of the most rejuvenating, well-spent weekends we have experienced in quite some time. Arriving late after a reasonably direct drive from Manhattan, we were greeted by a cozy apartment with comforting music and prepared beds. Set on a formerly prosperous dairy farm of local significance, the original barn-converted-apartment rental provided an excellent setting to enjoy some real down time. The spacious living area, highlighted by a gas-heated stove and large art studio, was a great place for simply lounging and relaxing. The large sun-lit windows allowed us to take in the views of the surrounding hillside which hosted some fantastic wild birds, including bohemian waxwings, common redpolls, blue jays, woodpeckers and various raptors and wintering sparrows.

The owner's, Katherine and Harry, made our stay very enjoyable. Both artists, their work, mostly inspired by the surrounding property, was charmingly displayed throughout the apartment. They provided us with farm fresh eggs from their own chickens and delicious maple syrup made from a local proprietor. While the apartment proved to be a great place for relaxing, it was also an excellent home-base for a exploring the beauty of Vermont's surrounding forests, towns, and ski slopes. We can't wait to return in the Summer!! -- Samantha, Jim, Kate and Chase

Excellent all round

  • 5 of 5
We are just getting ready to leave after 9 nights staying at the apartment on Popple Dungeon Road. What a great place. A previous review hit the nail on the head - cozy yet elegant. The apartment is meant for two people but we had friends come and visit and they also enjoyed two nights with us on very comfortable bedding with an extra heated bathroom in the barn which was great for them. Our bed was extremely comfortable and cosy. The gas burning storve was wonderful, and additional heaters in the bathroom and bedroom ensured the entire apartment was toasty warm throughout. The apartment is surrounded by fields and very quiet our entire stay, no road noise, no noisy neighbors, just wonderful, not to mention a few nice walks for the dogs. Our hosts couldn't do enough to please, including a beautiful Christmas tree when we arrived, and an invitation for cheese and wine on our last night. What more could you ask for. Thank you Katherine and Harry for a wonderful home away from home. We will come back again.
