Create a new tradition ... An invigorating springtime in the hills of Vermont.... Your own kitchen for a fabulous meal,shopping on Friday in local arts and crafts galleries, walks in the woods or cozy up to the fire......
Relax and restore in a peaceful barn apartment in the historic Popple Dungeon district of Chester, Vermont. Hidden within a rustic early 20th century hay and dairy barn find a comfortable retreat that features wide pine floors, 1 large private bedroom with a restful queen sized bed, french doors open onto your private deck, antique clawfoot tub. Additional sleeping area in the living room.
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.
Spring, with all the subtle beauty and joy of renewal. Winter brings cozy evenings in front of the glass fronted heating stove. Summer, alfresco dining on the deck. Fall is all about the color. Wander the property, enjoy the gardens and abundant bird life. Close to Chester and Grafton, skiing, golfing, antiquing, farmer's markets open Memorial Day through Columbus Day, shopping, hiking, kayaking and much more. Easy access to I-91.
Vermont is not only for skiers. It is a paradise for a romantic get-away, artists looking for the right light and enough space to capture it, family adventures, and solo restorative retreats.
When Summer is here, there is nothing like a country retreat when the gardens and farms are in high production and there is nothing to be concerned about except the choice between the hammock and an Adirondack chair and just which book to read first.
Fall - incomparable .... enough said.
Winter Wonderland... Close to several downhill and Nordic ski centers as well as skating, VAST trails, snowshoeing and hiking. Our beautifully appointed, warm and cozy apartment is a wonderful place to come home to after a day of enjoying the crisp Vermont air.
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 run a small gallery in Chester that features our work and the work of several local and regional artists.
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.
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.
