I just got back from a great overnight get-away with my sweetheart and the Henry Farm Inn is a perfect choice for such an event. Upon arrival Paul and his wife Pat warmly welcomed us. The Inn is a cozy, rustic farmhouse with beautiful pumpkin pine floors and quaint country touches. We ventured into the small town of Chester (only a couple minutes away) and started by getting a bite to eat at the Moon Dog Cafe. The owners are very friendly and had just moved into a larger location. They have a great menu of organic foods and it served as a perfect mid afternoon meal. We continued our walk and stopped into the Reed Art gallery. There we met Elaine and Bob Reed who were exceptionally friendly and treated us like friends rather than customers. The gallery has great works of local art and jewelry. Bob even offered us to go into his shop and craft our own jewelry! It was starting to get late so we didn’t take him up on his offer but we are definitely coming back sometime soon to do so. Bob also recommended eating at the Old Farm Inn for Japanese cuisine. He even called over and made reservations for us! The meal at the Old Farm Inn was FANTASTIC! Honestly the best Japanese food I’ve ever had and perhaps the best meal I’ve ever had! After dinner we stopped by the Fullerton Inn for some live entertainment and a couple of drinks. The music was good and the crowd was friendly but it was a bit crowded so we didn’t stay long. In the morning we awoke to a top-notch wholsome breakfast and continued hospitality. The whole experience was wonderful and affordable…a perfect VT getaway!
