About the property

COZY & SUNLIT! CENTRAL TO 5 MOUNTAINS IN CHESTER, VT

A LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN IN CHESTER, VT!

From the fully enclosed entry mud room, to the attached carriage house, this Vermont country cape built in 1857 has a lot of charm!

Nestled in the middle of 5 mountains (Magic-8 mins, Bromley & Stratton-20 mins, Okemo-25 mins & Killington-50 mins) you have everything you need for your Vermont getaway.

Our home is also wonderful during foliage and in Summer! As a matter of fact, the mountain behind our house is one photographed often by leaf peepers!

Right next door is Gordon's Christmas Tree farm where you can choose & cut your own tree for a nominal cost, and, if you rent our home before Christmas, one tree is on us! Our kitchen is fully stocked with all you need to cook your own meals, and some nice restaurants are just minutes away if you are too tired to cook!

Enjoy the wood fireplace while watching one of our many DVD's or playing games in our game room! Bring your own sheets and towels!

About Gina

My husband and my hard labor enabled us to make a perfect investment in a little piece of Heaven in Chester, Vt....'The Vermont You've Been Looking For'!

Gina purchased this house in 2005

Why Gina chose Ludlow / Okemo Mountain Area

Central to 5 ski mountains and close proximety to Rt 91. Exit 6 in Vermont...travel west and you're in the driveway in less than 20 mins!! This house is also FABULOUS for a romantic getaway!

What makes this house unique

Charming farmhouse built in 1857....a great fireplace and a huge country kitchen! The river in the back is great for fishing, and the babbling brook across the street will sing it's lullaby to you and you will sleep! Play area for kids and bar area for adults! We also house Buck, our Karaoke singing deer head! He's sure to be the life of any party!

Guestbook comments from the owner

HI Gina,

We had a GREAT time at your house! The leaves were so pretty during our stay and our trek about all the mountains! We are looking forward to making another trip in winter for a peek at how it looks in the snow! We thought the location was fabulous, the house was truly "charming' and having the games and all the movies for the kids was a help for the day of rain. We look forward to staying again this winter!!

Great Time at Gina's House

  • 5 of 5

We had fantastic time in Vermont Skiing. Gina's house although over 100 years old, still has great character and charm. Its a little quirky, but if you treat this classic house nice, it is a rewarding stay. The singing deer in the bar area had the kids entertained but after a couple of days...had the adults hiding the batteries..(they are in the drawer in the living room)! Gina was absolutely great to work with, had great communication throughout our stay and even let us checkout a little later so we could get some runs in before driving home.. The Wheel of Fortune game was a nightly event...Thanks Gina for the use of your home..

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The location of this property was perfect for what we were looking for. The price was better than renting a hotel room and it gave us room to entertain. The old has has lots of elegance and charm from yesteryear and the furnace really does keep the house toasty warm. We spent most of our time in the huge eat in kitchen.

We had asked about the firewood situation when we reserved and was told there would be some there but when we got there there was none. I mentioned it to Gina and her SO is having medical issues and said we could get some :(. Luckily someone brought us some incase the lights went out (they had gone out our first night due to a fire in Chester Depot).

A few draw backs were having to bring in our own sheets and towels. When we got there, the cupboards were full of towels with a note saying if you use their persons items you don't get your cleaning deposit back.....that was okay since we were prepared. However a leak in the upstairs sink did manage yo get them wet. Also, one of the full beds has been changed to a queen.

We did not have cellphone service at the house although some of the locals that came to visit did. This is not Ginas fault. It is just a drawback and should be noted. I think the service there was Verizon.

All in all it was a very good trip and I think Gina is a terrific person! I think her caretaker should have been taking care of these issues for her, especially given the circumstances.

I would recommend this place to anyone that wanted to be in the heart of snow country and didn't mind the quirks of staying in an old house!!

Wonderful family time!

  • 5 of 5

The house was cozy, had everything we needed and plenty of space for 3 young families! The kids were in love with the singing moose head in the bar area and the available firewood that the owner so thoughtfully had available, made the evenings perfect for the long lasting memories we created!

Thank you Gina, for being so accommodating and thank you very very much for allowing us to enjoy you little piece of heaven!

Very quaint and Charming house

  • 4 of 5

We went on a spur of the moment to VT. The owner was very helpful on the phone. The house is fine - rustic and quaint, with charm. It was a pleasant experience. The only downside is that you must bring linen and towels.
