Vermont Village Bed & Breakfast for Sale
On the Village Green
Looking for a Vermont village bed & breakfast for sale in one of the prettiest ‘painted villages’ in America? This is it!
In southern Vermont lies a quiet, friendly town, Chester. The town is known for many things, it boasts of two historical districts and three villages as well as zero stoplights! Chester is a town where owners of historic commercial buildings and homes take real pride in their upkeep. This is an important part of why Chester is such a popular New England destination town. Plenty of green space and easy access to outdoor activities, year round. Its location is idyllic, nestled on the eastern slopes of the Green Mountains in the heart of Okemo Valley, the well-known ski and year round resort for all. In the summer months there are 3 world class golf courses and canoe and kayaking in nearby rivers and lakes.
Inn Victoria, Vermont village bed & breakfast for sale is a classic Victorian ‘painted lady’, historic and pretty! Inside and out. Located on the village Green in the heart of the town. Walk to restaurants, galleries and shops. A very popular restaurant, The Free Range, is a huge draw. Talented Chef/owner Jason Tostrup serves locally-inspired dishes with Vermont authenticity. All of this translates to a relaxed, less hurried getaway with wonderful places to experience what a Vermont small village is all about. What a recent article on Chester in the Boston Globe calls, “…slow pace, step-back-in-time beauty.”
