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 Depot
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!

Very charming home!
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!
Stone Ski Getaway
The Stone House was the perfect place for a weekend getaway to Stratton. The home was clean, comfy, cozy and convenient. The location of the home is within walking distance to shops and restaurants. We will definitely come back!

We loved the Stone House in Chester! It was beautiful and the owners provided us with some welcoming goodies that were such a nice touch. The space was perfect for my husband and I, plus the four teenagers we had. Our only complaint was the very loud traffic. Because it is on the main street, it was very difficult to sleep through the night in the bedroom downstairs. We tried the sound machine and ear plugs, but it was still loud.
We had a great vacation, and the teenagers upstairs were able to sleep no problem!! I would still highly recommend renting this home from the very lovely owners :))
I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay at the house! It was a pleasure hosting you and your family! With all the wonderful snow Chester got, I imagine the snow plows were out in full force - day and night - I'm sorry they kept you up at night. But on a typical night things usually quiet down between 10pm and 6am. Each season brings new things to do in and around Chester - I hope you all come back again!
Six of us stayed and skied at Okemo. The house was so inviting and relaxing. The owners truly paid attention to every detail of making our stay AMAZING!!!
Lovely, comfy and well-appointed historic home away from home
Four sisters shared this house for the second time this Fall — the first time was in summer — and both visits were fabulous! Mike and Doreen are gracious hosts, and we will definitely be back again.
Beautiful house, comfy and not pretentious. Great walk into town, for shopping and food.
Five of us stayed at this home for a fall weekend. It is in a great location if you want to walk in town for dinner, breakfast, shopping, etc. The beds are comfy, the house warm and not the least bit drafty- impressive for an antique house. Close to Long Trail for hiking, skiing, etc. I would definitely stay again.
