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!

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.

Lovely, comfy and well-appointed historic home away from home

  • 5 of 5

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.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Wonderful Stay at the 1843 Stone House!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in this beautifully appointed historical house. Everything was perfect when we walked in the door and even included a bottle of wine and dinner to celebrate our anniversary!

Doreen was a delight and very helpful telling us so much about the history of the area and guiding me to all of the best places in this quaint little town.

Thanks for a wonderful dinner, wine, and the great stay in your lovely home!

My family and I enjoyed our stay at the 1843 stone house. It was well maintained and very clean. The house was in a perfect location. The strong air conditioners came in handy for a couple warm days. The beds were extremely comfortable. The outside grounds were beautiful with plenty of outdoor seating. We felt at home in Mike and Doreen's beautiful Chester house. Thanks again!

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!
