Why Bonnie Hertberg chose Chester

Wayfarer Farm is a magical place for our family. It is truly our kick-your-shoes-off and forget-about- the-real-world and enjoy-each-other haven. This home contains so many wonderful memories... of teaching our children to ski, sledding on the hill out back, watching our girls run around barefoot with the dog, sharing weekends and holidays with friends and family, countless hours of corn hole, evenings by the fire pit, gourmet dinners eaten out on the lawn... It is our desire to share this special place with others. We hope that you, too, will experience the magic of Wayfarer Farm. We are pretty sure you will.
