Breakfast & Meals

Since the second half of “Bed & Breakfast” is “breakfast,” we feel it is only right that we dedicate a page of our web site to our delicious and nutritious gourmet morning meals.

Many of our guests lead very busy lives and often, in their daily routine, skimp on their first — and most significant — meal of the day.

But while staying here at the Inn, they can slow down, relax and enjoy the kind of superb breakfast they don’t often have.

“Breakfast is important to everyone’s overall health and performance. It is an early-morning refueling stop for your body. After 8 to 12 hours without a meal or a snack, your body needs to replenish its blood sugar, the main energy source for the brain…. Studies show breakfast eaters tend to have more strength and endurance, and better concentration and problem-solving abilities.” — American Dietetic Association

We understand the importance of a good breakfast and so we take the time and care to prepare a tasty and nutritious morning meal for all our guests.

What to expect

  • Guests at the Chester House are pampered each morning with a scrumptious, full breakfast.
  • Variety is a spice we use a lot of, and so the breakfast menu at the Chester House changes daily. That way and each morning our guests enjoy a different treat.
  • Our Dining Room, where you will enjoy a full breakfast at a private table.
  • Breakfast is served between 8:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. at your own private table in our charming new Dining Room. Earlier Continental Breakfast availible during Ski Season at 7:30 a.m.

With prior notice, we try our very best to accommodate guests who have medical dietary restrictions.

The Chester House is proud to have again received the rarely-awarded score of a perfect 100% on the annual inspection of our kitchen, our food service areas, our dining room and all our guest rooms by the Vermont Department of Health:

“Clean and well-kept. No violations noted. Good job!” — Inspector’s Report, Vermont Dept. of Health

Our guests are more comfortable knowing that their breakfasts are prepared and served according to the highest standards of the State of Vermont, and that their rooms are clean and sanitary (as well as charming and beautiful).

Lunch & Dinner

Lunch and dinner can certainly be important parts of every travel experience.

As you head to Vermont, be assured that there are many fine and varied restaurants in the area of the Chester House: some just across the street, the others within a short 5 to 15-minute drive.

Here at the Chester House we have the menus for all nearby restaurants, so you can preview them before you go out, and can select the restaurant that best suits your taste buds and your price range.

When discussing restaurant selection with our guests, we always recommend those restaurants that best match the guests’ dining expectations. We have four fine restaurants that we recommend to our guests for an exquisite dining experience.

If necessary or if you desire, we will gladly make dining reservations for you. Reservations are recommended during holiday and peak travel times.

Mangia!
(Eat and enjoy!)

All your recommendations — from restaurants to ski rental to maple syrup — were so helpful… Finally, we were deeply touched by how welcome you made or 10-year-old son, Evan, feel. You made him feel special, smart and grown-up. This was an unexpected gift you so generously gave us. We wish you nothing but great success and hope to see you back on our next trip north to ski.

I want to thank you or a wonderful weekend.  We had a very enjoyable, relaxing time the Chester House.  You made us feel like we never left home. You were fantastic hosts. We were a little sad to leave. Vermont is beautiful and we hope to see it in the winter time.  I will definitely spread the word about the Chester House to everyone I know.  The work and dedication you both put in to making everyone “feel at home” shows.  So we thank you again for a very enjoyable weekend.

The Chester House has been a delightful home during my stay. Especially memorable are your culinary presentations and care shown to every guest.

You have both obviously devoted years on the decor, ambiance and historical presentations. Thank you for your T.L.C.

Sometimes when my mind is wandering I will find myself back at the inn.  I immediately get a warm and comforting feeling mainly because you both made two complete strangers feel so welcomed by your wonderful hospitality. 

Our best wishes.

Thank you for being a big part in making our first visit to Vermont a memorable and beautiful one for us. Your Bed & Breakfast is so charming and your love for detail is obvious.  We felt very comfortable in Room #1 and I loved hearing about the history of various pieces of furniture throughout the inn. And your delicious breakfasts were a perfect start for a day of exploring.  Thank you! Your warm and welcoming personalities make us want to come back soon.

We see that you finally received the much needed snowfall and we hope the skiers are all packing up their cars and heading your way. We wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay in your beautiful, comfy Inn. The room (#7) was perfect for our 3-person family, and the morning breakfast sent us to the slopes every morning smiling, happy and quite full. We looked forward to coming back every night and sitting in front of the fire in the Keeping Room while we got our evening fix of Olympics.

Kathy and I just wanted to say thank you for your hospitality.  We loved our stay and had a great time checking out the area.  We even had fun finding the Hamilton Falls.   🙂  We look forward to staying at your B&B next year for our 31st Anniversary and really look forward to dining at Bella Luna again.

This is an open recommendation to all first time visitors:

These innkeepers take your visit personally.  They talk with you, not to you and really want to make your stay special.  If our room is indicative of the others, it shouldn’t matter which one you select.  Warm, tastefully adorned and most comfortable.  The gathering room is inviting with a gently stoked, meticulously maintained fire.  Breakfasts are a hand-crafted, culinary delight.  This B&B is a value, period.
