Beyond the lower meadow are woods with an old worn grassy road to an intimate upper meadow which contains a small pond - not suitable for swimming but a great destination for hiking. Smokeshire Road is a county-maintained dirt road that meanders along the river and is excellent for hiking and walking through the bucolic woods. In the warmer weather, one can sit on the large rocks or swim in the cool pools of the Williams River. In the winter, a toboggan path cuts through our woods and is perfect for sledding, tubing or practicing a snowboard run. The meadow is perfect for cross country skiing!

Weddings and Reunions: The Vermont 1828 Reunion House is the perfect place for reunions and weddings, as the large pasture can accommodate tents and parking.

About: The Vermont 1828 Reunion House is "Where Memories are Made." Built in 1828 the historic farmhouse is the perfect place for large family gatherings with dinners in the dining room and intimate conversations in front of the roaring fire in the lodge. There is plenty of space for privacy as well as ten acres of woodland and pasture for exploration. The woods, meadow, and hills also include a small pond. And the beauty of the Williams River located next to the house is a beautiful spot in any season. Over the years, the warmth and character of the home have welcomed many a visitor. Whether snow-loving-folks are visiting the covered mountains in winter, rugged hikers in the spring, or leaf peepers admiring the red sugar maples, each visitor has been wrapped in the nostalgic warmth of this quintessential farmhouse. Eight bedrooms, each unique in traditional decor, and four bathrooms allow for ample space for guests. With two kitchens connected with an old fashioned pass thru window, meal preparation becomes a family affair. Did I mention the commercial grade Wolf Stove? This home is ideally suited for family and friend reunions. Clubs, associations, artists, musicians, snowmobilers, antique hunters, the list, goes on and on. All who have stayed have found a home away from home at the 1828 House. The adjacent barn is a living relic, and one can marvel at the rustic construction from another time. Currently, it is another hang-out-area with a ping pong table, foosball table, and even a punching bag to provide an outdoor game area. With plenty of parking, dirt roads for walking and clear star filled skies at night, your cares will ease, and your focus will shift to the love of being with family and friends, enjoying the simple pleasures of life.

Why Chester, VT, USA:
This home is a unique and wonderful place that really inspires good times. Close to Okemo, the mountains, the streams, the swimming holes, the antiques and maple sugar, the golf courses, the colleges, Montreal, Canada. So much to do, This is a magical place! Come visit and make some Vermont memories with your family.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Okemo Mountain Resort, the Green Mountains and the towns of Weston, Grafton, Ludlow, and Chester are close to the house. Skiing, snowboarding, hiking, antiquing, leaf peeping, reunions and college visits, have all brought folks to the 1828 House. The property has much to offer with woods, meadows, the Williams River for swimming and Smokeshire Road for hiking. The VAST Vermont Snowmobile trail is right across the road from the 1828 House!
