About Mike and Doreen Rogers

Our family of 3 has enjoyed all 4 seasons in Chester Vermont for years. We purchased this beautiful Pre-Civil War stone house on December 30, 2014. On the chance our home is not rented, we gladly spend our free time there. At our 1843 Stone House, we hope you find all of the comforts of home and so much more!

Mike and Doreen Rogers purchased this house in 2015

Why Mike and Doreen Rogers chose Chester

We traveled to the Chester area for years to go skiing at neighboring mountains and to attend fall festivals and winter carnivals. We loved the charm and the historical age of the house. We also loved the proximity of the house to the Chester Village and all that that offers. We enjoy walking to MacLaomains Pub or to the Bradford Pub to enjoy the local craft beer. Our son enjoys the soccer fields at the local school and having the sidewalks makes for safe travel. This house was built in 1843 and is loaded with charm and history. There is a retired Maple Sugar Shack on the property. We fell in love with this house as soon as we saw it!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just spent a long weekend at Doreen's beautiful and cozy home in Chester and skied at nearby Okemo (20 minute drive). Our hosts thought of everything to make our experience as welcoming, trouble free, and comfortable as possible. The house is really charming and had everything we needed. The welcome gifts of snacks and treats were much appreciated and such a kind gesture. Doreen and her husband are very attentive hosts and responded quickly to any inquiries. Chester is a nice little town- we had a great breakfast at Moondog cafe on our last day. Our family hopes to rent the house again soon- it was a truly relaxing and wonderful stay.

Very homey and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five people enjoyed your home while attending a family reunion. It provided us some personal space, but also allowed us to entertain a group comfortably.

Your welcome gifts were very thoughtful, and the house was impeccably clean. It was within walking distance to restaurants and shops, and we loved the people and products at Lisai's Market.

We highly recommend your home to anyone who has reason to be in the Chester area.

Exceptional Home. Gracious Hosts. Don't miss out on this one!

  • 5 of 5

This review is long over due. It's truly a pleasure to recommend this lovely home. We had the fortune of spending time here over the long holiday weekend in September. The interior is spotless, comfortable, well appointed, and lacking for nothing. You will be greeted with a lovely basket of Vermont goodies-how thoughtful and very appreciated. The kitchen has all you will need to cook a wonderful meal, the living area is comfortable, warm, and inviting. The linens and bedding is top notch. The high end toiletries are a nice touch-and wow the downstairs shower was amazing. We appreciated the selection of board games that would appeal to young and old alike. The town of Chester itself is quaint -with several shops, restaurants, and such within walking distance. Cook a great meal, enjoy family and friends, relax around the bonfire, and renew yourself in this gem of a house. We will be back for sure.

Beautifully Kept Home

  • 5 of 5

Four girlfriends stayed in this wonderful home at the end of a two week road trip. We were looking forward to a relaxing stay in this old stone home. What a surprise to see how updated it was inside, and we appreciated the welcome gifts Doreen left for us. Our original plan was to overnight in the home, and drive to Stowe and other areas each day. We quickly changed our plans after discovering what a charming town Chester is. We never went further than 30 minutes away as we discovered covered bridges and lush drives. The town is very walkable, with wonderful small shops and restaurants. Doreen’s tips were spot on. We recommend the Scottish Pub, the handmade jewelry at Sage Jewelry, Sharon’s handmade scarves, wonderful antique shops, and the Artisan Market. The home is remarkably well done, and very comfy. We spent two evenings drinking wine and listening to music in cozy living room. And….good air conditioning for those warm evenings.

Well-appointed and Lovely

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this place. The owners were wonderful and responsive. They answered all my questions promptly. The house is lovely and has so much character. The owners have taken great care to give the place a special and welcoming feel. You can tell they cherish this place, and it is not just a rental property. Not only is the house very clean, it is also well equipped. My group did a lot of cooking, and we were able to find everything we needed (appliance and kitchen tools) to make our meals. The owner's also provided a nice selection of Vermont goodies to enjoy. The beds are comfortable. The bedding, towels, furniture, and appliances are high quality. My group included four adults and two young children and we all enjoyed the space.

Chester itself is a gem. It is a quintessential Vermont town that is worth the stop. The community is very friendly. The house's location was great because you can walk to many of the local restaurants and shops.

Charming old home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a women's weekend and had a great time. We absolutely loved the house and the way it's been decorated. All the bed were very comfortable, too! It was an easy walk to town to look in the shops there. We would definitely stay here again.

A Warm and Beautiful Vermont House Filled with Wine and Laughter

  • 5 of 5

Mike & Doreen,

We had a really great time in your lovely Stone House in Chester. Lunch at The Country Girl, breakfast at Moon Dog, and lots of cooking in your wonderful kitchen.

I surveyed the group for any criticisms or suggestions for improvement, and they were all gushing about how comfortable and warm and perfect everything was. Bonnie thought that a headboard on the queen bed in the upstairs room would make for easier pillow propping for bedtime stories. I thought that the coffee maker needed the right type of cone filters to prevent overflows and clogging. That's it. We loved the gas fire in the sitting room.

The snow was perfect, by the way. Changes the way the whole town looks. We visited the Bookworm and picked up a nice portfolio edition of "Jane Eyre" and we took a cold walk through the town forest the day before the snow. Bonnie visited her namesake doll house in Chester, and she loved the quilt shop. The kids spent a few hours in the Scottish pub. Mostly, we stayed snug in the house, reading, playing games, watching "Wizard of Oz" (Bonnie's favorite) and "Wolf Hall" (a great series about Thomas Cromwell and Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII). We drank a few glasses of wine...

Thanks again for all your advice and preparation. We may do it again next year!

Best regards,

Tom & Bonnie

Owner's Response: Fantastic! Thank you for the wonderful review! It sounds like your family reunion was perfect with snow and all! Thank you for sharing suggestions for other visitors to enjoy - Moon Dog, Country Girl, etc. I'm so sorry that the coffee pot didn't work well; we replaced the filters and it works perfectly. Please visit again~
