Over ten years of work went into creating a work of art using more than 80% recycled building materials known locally as "The Recycle House". The perfect place to stay while you explore all the shops and galleries in downtown Chester just a few steps away. When you are done shopping, come back and relax in the zen like garden overlooking a waterfall or curl up inside and read a book by the gas fire place. If you are looking for a place to get away from it all, this is the place. The property advertised is the entire house split into 2 suites with separate entry ways on lower and main levels.

Unique craftsmanship and charming spaces! Gorgeous waterfall and lovely town. We will be back!

Awesome get away
A very beautiful home on an equally beautiful property. Very short walk to a picturesque town with excellent restaurants. This is a perfect get away any time of year.
The owner was very helpful and ever available.
My bride and I have been to about 15 of these rentals, we highly recommend this place.
Spectacular, Quirky House in charming Chester CT
This house is a well-appointed, spectacular, quirky combination of recycled beams, windows, floorboards, antiques and even an old piano that together create the feeling of a refurbished barn. There is a minimum of stuff, everything necessary is in its place, an engineering feat that I love. AC that works really well and gas stoves that I assume will work as well too. All of this in an amazing setting in a charming village. The waterfall is beautiful, creating a lovely background noise you can hear from all rooms. Great beds, really comfy and the great bathrooms. I will definitely be back and will recommend it to my friends.
Quaint and relaxing, a wonderful escape!
We really enjoyed this unique home and it's perfect location. The waterfall and views are beautiful, and being so close to the lovely main street of Chester was extremely convenient. We went with another couple so the separate living quarters worked well as we each had our own space, and we gathered mostly on the deck. We did a lot of cooking and the kitchen is a little tight for more than one adult at a time, but we made it work. If you plan on cooking, keep in mind that there is no oven, just two electric burners in each suite. We also brought our own portable grill (with the owner's approval) which made meals easier. The trip to Gillette Castle State Park is quick and scenic, and the park/castle itself is well worth the visit! The Chester farmer's market on Sunday was also a pleasant surprise and was just steps from the house.
Wonderful house in a cute town
I visited with my parents and our two dogs. We very much enjoyed the house and waterfall. Since everything in the house is recycled, you will find many interesting pieces in the house. I particularly enjoyed the various antique sinks and light fixtures. The deck is also arranged to maximize view of the waterfall.
We also enjoyed the town of Chester. The house is about 100 yards from downtown. Food was great and there was a farmer's market on Sunday with live music. We also visited the beach at Cedar Lake, which is a short car ride away.
Thanks for staying with us. Happy to hear that you found the different pieces in the house interesting. There are a lot of interesting stories to go along with them. Come back and stay with us again and we can try to get the creator to stop by and tell you the back story.
Such a unique and charming house
Very relaxing peaceful stay here at the Recycle House!! Rustic, cozy atmosphere with the constant back drop sound of the waterfall. It rained the majority of our stay, but that only made it more relaxing! I recommend the upper suite! Downtown Chester, which was a few steps away, were filled with all different kinds of unique stores. Otto pizza was hands down the best pizza I've ever had. We also toured the Gillette Castle state park, which is a short drive from the house!
Thank you very much for our stay!
Glad you enjoyed your stay. I love the sound of the waterfall as well, perfect white noise to help fall asleep.
