Guesthouse setting:

The driveway can easily accommodate 3-4 cars, more with some creative parking! The house is located within the village of Chester. You can park your car and walk to everything.

The house is set on a small knoll in town within walking distance of shops, restaurants, grocery, bakery, hiking trails & Black River fishing and swimming holes, yoga studio, and a recreation area with a public pool, tennis courts, playground and skate park. Our region is becoming increasingly known for its organic farms, farm raised beef, farm to table restaurants, craft beer, artisan bread and cheese, and even local winemakers.

Within a short drive you can easily visit working farms and many small historic villages. The nearby towns of Ludlow, Grafton, Weston, Springfield and Bellows Falls are all within 15 minutes’ drive from Amare Guesthouse, each with their own personality. Brattleboro, Woodstock and Manchester are within a 45 min drive and offer rich history, more restaurants and entertainment.  Please visit our “Things to do in Chester” page for links and suggestions. The house is on a main road so traffic can be heard.

We live in Chester and have a shop in town, we are usually in the area and can be reached easily by phone or text. I would be happy to answer any questions or suggest some fun activities for you and your family to do during your visit.
