Unique Artist/Writer Retreat
When Summer is here, there is nothing like a country retreat when the gardens and farms are in high production and nothing to be concerned about except the choice between the hammock and an Adirondack chair and just which book to read first and maybe a little al fresco dining on the deck.

About Katherine Henry
We are artists and have our studios here on the property. Our home is also on the property, so we are around to help with questions about the area and if you need us for anything. We operate a small gallery in Chester, which for us, is a great way to meet new people and share ideas and art. We have lived all over the states, in all kinds of climates and atmospheres ( social and physical) and living here is like coming home, stepping into the perfect pair of fuzzy slippers... ahhhhhh yes, this is right.
Why Katherine Henry chose Chester
We chose this property simply because the moment we stepped out of the realtor's car, we knew, this was home. It is magical, pinch me, I can't believe I live here! Chester is a great little town, loads of character and characters! Shopping and groceries, a hub for the rest of the county and Southern Vermont. Really a great place to live and to visit.
What makes this barn unique
This place has a charm that brings people back
from as near as Ascutney and as far away as Okinawa.
We have had other returning guests from New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston, Philadelphia, Miami, Hartford, Buffalo, Colorado Springs, and Chattanooga.
It is all about the barn! We fell in love with this property over the MANY we viewed, mainly because of the barn, it's vaulted ceiling, it's solid presence and sense of space. In summer of 2013 she received a facelift and is now as beautiful outside as she has always be inside!
Artists..... Painters, Poets, Potters, Photographers, Writers, Musicians, Composers, Sculptors, Actors and Directors... and those wanting to explore all the possibilities ... There is plenty of studio space for you. Let us know ahead of time and we can work out the details. We do it all here!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Our stay at The Popple Dungeon apartment was fantastic to say the least! The apartment boasts solitude and a calming atmosphere. It is also complemented with nice scenery. Everything we needed was provided and the hosts made it a top priority to make sure we were comfortable. Definitely a great deal. I highly recommend this place for anyone who wants to kick back, unwind, and immerse themselves in the mountains of Vermont.
