Like a home away from home! A review of Chester House Inn
My husband and I stumbled across an on-line listing for the Chester House Inn several years ago when we were searching for a getaway to a VT B&B. After comparing the Chester House Inn's amenities, location and charm to those of several other inns in the area, we booked ourselves in for three nights. We so thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on our first visit that we have returned for a winter escape every year since!
We have stayed in three of the inn's seven rooms, and have found each to be comfortably appointed. Some of our rooms have had gas fireplaces, others have had jacuzzi tubs, and still others have had sitting areas in addition to the sleeping area. Thoughtful touches such as extra pillows & blankets, bottled water, a variety of current magazines, and a binder filled with information about attractions in the Chester area abound.
The inn's common area is cozy and complete with a fireplace, shelves full of books, racks of brochures about area attractions, an assortment of games, and a TV. We have meet some wonderful new friends while lounging in front of the fire after long days of skiing. The innkeepers, Bill and Paul, have often joined in our conversations and have delighted us with their stories, their knowledge of the inn's history, and their suggestions for just the right place to shop for antiques, get a yummy treat to indulge my sweet tooth, or get a late lunch on the day of our arrival to the inn.
Breakfast is such a treat at the Chester House Inn! We always wake up with anticipation of the culinary delights sure to await our arrival in the newly renovated diningroom. We have been treated to omelettes, blueberry pancakes, stuffed french toast, yogurt parfaits, maple baked pears, and chocolate chip muffins--yum! Coffee, tea and orange juice are offered in abundance as well. We have also taken advantage of the opportunity to purchase soda, beer and wine from the innkeepers in the late afternoon and early evening...you can't beat the convenience or the extremely affordable prices!
The Chester House Inn has become a home away from home for us. We look forward to our visit each winter, knowing we'll be treated like family.
