Reviews: Chester in the NEws


“The word is out: Tiny Chester is worth a visit”

The Boston Globe, April 17, 2019

The April 17, 2019 edition of The Boston Globe included a lovely write-up and guide to visiting Chester:

“It’s almost a crime to write about Chester, Vt. It’s like revealing a secret swimming hole.

“Oh no!” one resident said to us when we were in town researching this article. “Please, don’t tell Globe readers about us! We like our town just the way it is.”

We like this under-the-radar town, too: its slow-pace, step-back-in-time beauty, its cluster of historic homes and buildings; its green space and access to outdoor activities.

Today, the tiny village tucked in the shadows of the Green Mountains in southeast Vermont has two historic districts: Stone Village, named for the predominance of its unique granite houses, and Chester Village, with a collection of New England Federal and Colonial homes. Both are listed in the National Register of Historic Places. There are also charming country inns, restaurants, shops, museums, and outdoor adventure.
