The Stone Hearth Inn and Tavern.....

Our friends and VT neighbors frequent a great eatery in Chester, and are always telling us how fantastic it is and we should try it sometime.  We recently had the opportunity to give it a try....and I agree with them...it is a great place!  The Stone Hearth Inn and Tavern, 698 Rte 11, Chester VT is a wonderful stop along your route or even a stay over.  They have eight guest rooms and a very large dining area with the "stone hearth" fire place and couches to sit and enjoy it.  There's a very relaxing feel to this place which makes you feel as if you were part of the family.
 There are two family members of the canine kind who are very friendly and welcoming as they greet you when you enter.  We arrived a bit before the lunch hour, but our server Mary-Anne made us right at home taking our drink order and giving us our choice of seating. 
Our drink choice was the Trapp Lager from the chalk board brew menu.  It was a very good choice if I do say so myself.




After Mary-Anne told us of the daily specials and took our order, we sat back and eyed all the stickers and beer taps that adorn every nook in the place!  I was amazed at the number of taps hanging along the ceilings edge...many of which have been served there in the tavern.
 The hundreds of stickers prove that people from all over the world have visited this gem and left their "calling card" to prove it.  I am sure it is exciting to come back for the second visit to see your calling card hanging up.  You tell two friends, and they tell two friends and so on and so on....I only wish I had a sticker or two with me.....next time I will.
Lunch was so scrumptious that I forgot to even take a snap shot of it!  I had the Chevre Salad which is a warm goat cheese spread onto a crispy crostini and on the side the signature Stone Hearth Salad with homemade balsamic vinaigrette.  My hubby had the Pork Burger with apple slices and brie cheese piled onto a sweet roll....oh heavenly!  Yes, I was offered a bite and took it.  Now, our next visit I won't have to look at anything else on the menu because that is what I am having.  Incredible flavor combo.



So, please take my word for it....if you are looking for a great eatery or a comfortable place to rest for the night....try the Stone Hearth Inn and Tavern.  I think you'll be delighted.
