The Victorian Charm of Chester's Village

Welcome, you've found us! Chester's boasts of being the "Vermont you were hoping to find". During the 20th century, as the farms mechanized and trains gave way to trucks, Chester retained its elegance and charm of a Victorian village and rural countryside that attracts visitors from around the world. Many of whom, intoxicated by its beauty stay and make it their home or their home away from home.

Perfectly situated between Okemo Mountain Resort, Bromley & Magic Mountain's, it is a skier's paradise. Only a short scenic drive to the Weston Playhouse, the world famous Vermont Country Store in both Weston and Rockingham, and only 30 miles from both Manchester Village and the famed Woodstock.

Chester has upwards of 15 Inns, B&B;'s, motels and hotels. The "Village Green", which is the center of town has over two dozen boutiques, specialty shops, restaurants, markets, deli's, galleries, lodging complete with an information center, a beautiful old graveyard, library and playground to burn off a little steam. As well as stores, galleries and restaurants tucked away in the mountainside or along its widing backroads.

The other side of town has the historic Chester depot which runs the Green Mountain Rail Tours to Bellows Falls, the Yosemite Firehouse Museum and the historic Stone Village, more markets, galleries and shops.

Best of all the village of Chester has kept its sense of community that weaves the town together through well managed town services, quality businesses, excellent schools, both elementary and upper grades, along with many active churches, clubs and organizations. There is a sense of pride amongst it residents to keep Chester a quaint Vermont village tucked neatly between the hustle and bustle of Manchester Village and the growing up and coming art communities of Saxton's River and Bellows Falls.
