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 charming home!

  • 5 of 5

The 1843 Stone House was a perfect meeting point for my sister, mother and I to have a girls get away weekend. We loved the charm and learning the history of the home and the area. We watched movies, played a ton of games, laughed, ate and slept really well. The area has the most wonderful restaurants. We loved the Free Range for brunch although we could of just ate there only. So good! The Mac Laomainns Scottish pub was great too! The steak pie..yummo! Doreen and Mike answered all our questions promptly before during and after our stay. The home was clean and the bedding so comfortable. Looking forward to maybe booking in the fall for hiking and fall foliage. Thanks again for a wonderful weekend stay!

Absolutely charming + excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

A group of a three of us stayed in the house for a girls/birthday weekend. Everything was as pictured - actually even better than the pictures can capture. The house was comfy and spacious - plenty of space for us. The owners were extremely helpful and responsive during the booking process and continued to be helpful with suggestions on things to do in the area. They go above & beyond to be sure you know the ins & outs of not only the house but the local area as well. They left a welcome basket - - such a sweet touch! The location is within walking distance to several shops and restaurants and is within a short drive to ski areas & local attractions. If you're looking for a very clean & convenient place to just relax or to take in the sights of VT, look no further! I hope to be lucky enough to return to this gem.

Charming village home, lovely and close to shops and restaurants.

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home. Cozy, just big enough (sleeps eight comfortably but there were only three of us), beautifully decorated. Stocked with all the essentials for cooking and eating in if you choose to do that. We had a great time and wish to thank our gracious hosts.

Classic Vermont! Best place ever!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, charmingly decorated, super clean and practical for families... can't say enough about this great house. Owners are very responsive and helpful, even offered an early check in when we asked to use the sleds earlier than the usual check in time. Would definitely rent this house again for our next ski trip!

All that and MORE!

  • 5 of 5

A great time was had by all! The Stonehouse was perfect for our Sisters Weekend. Having had grown up in Chester back in the 70s it was truly just like coming home. You will not be disappointed about anything to do with this place. Everything they describe and state is true! It's tastefully decorated, warm and instantly inviting, you'll never feel that you are borrowing someone else's place. The location is crazy good, we walked everywhere. So simple, so easy. My car never left the driveway. One direction takes you by historic buildings cemetaries and buildings, shops, restaurants, into town. The other direction to hikes up into wooded trails and/or down along quiet dirt roads. I promise you, you'll love everything and you'll hate leaving. Smiling writing this as I think back on our wonderful time.

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.
