The space

Our guesthouse is on the Connecticut River in the treasured small town of Chester, half-way between New York and Boston – a little over two hours from each city and 45 minutes from New Haven and Hartford.
The cottage features a wide porch, private front yard overlooking the river; a living room with a couch that pulls out to sleeps two comfortably, a dining area and kitchen at one end with a dishwasher. There's a bedroom with a queen-sized bed and a good-sized bathroom with tub and shower.
The house, on our four-acre property, is private and quiet and about two miles from the center of the village which is well-appointed with wonderful restaurants, a professional theater, galleries and one-of-a-kind shops. There is endless hiking and kayaking possibilities with a boat launch ramp adjacent to the property. Theater, music and a variety of activities and things to do are all close by.
The cottage is $130 a night; $700 a week or $2000 a month. During January and February, March 2019, the price is $110 a night; $660 a week and $1700 a month.
We’d love to have you stay.

This place has a nice view of the Connecticut River. It is quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed sitting outside on the porch.
