Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: We grew up on the New Jersey shore and settled there. We love Vermont and we enjoyed all the ski areas in southern Vermont. We finally built a true log cabin in southern Vermont.

Why the Owner Chose Chester:
We built a log cabin in 1995. The location is outstanding. It is secluded but close to the town of Chester and near the major town of Springfield. Is on a historic dirt road that has been in place for over 200 years. Green Mountain Tpk. The road has a historic covered bridge that goes over the Williams river. Outstanding hiking, biking and river activities. Chester is centrally located to it all! The Weston Playhouse, Vermont's oldest professional theater company in Vermont hosts live performances, plays and musicals and is only minutes away! The nearby town of Bellows Falls hosts many of Southern Vermont's summer events . Love sports? There is boating, canoeing, kayaking and swimming on the Connecticut River. Enjoy hiking, mountain climbing, mountain biking, and golfing all available in the Okemo Valley area! Unique summer sports and activities include horseback riding in Woodstock, Orvis fly fishing in Manchester and hot air ballooning in Quechee. During winter months you'll find downhill and cross country skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The cabin sits facing south on a bluff overlooking the Williams river with rapids directly below the house. A lower deck sits on top of the rapids with a view of the mountains and sunsets. The river is excellent for fishing for brook trout and has a five foot swimming hole at the end of the property. The lower,upper decks and new sunroom are excellent places to watch the sunset with a beverage and listen to the sounds of the rapids. Love to explore? The historic towns of Woodstock, Grafton, Walpole, Weston, Brattleboro and Manchester are just a few of the most beautiful and scenic places that are just a short drive away. Love to shop? The famous Vermont Country Store is just 4 miles away! The town of Manchester with all of its incredible outlets such as the Gap, Bose, Anichini, Crabtree & Evelyn, J. Crew and Polo just to name a few is 30 minutes away. Love to Antique? The Stone House Antique Center with over 80 dealers is great for fun antiquing is just down the street! There are all kinds of auctions, antique shows and fun eclectic flea markets to be found almost every weekend in Southern Vermont. The Brimfield Antique Show, put on three times a year, is one of the largest antique shows in the U.S
