In Chester, two delightful Adirondack hamlets welcome visitors to a unique landscape bounded by the Schroon River on the east and the Hudson to the west. Chestertown and Pottersville offer small town, friendly hospitality blending renovated historic buildings with modern amenities. Overnight visitors choose from campsites or quaint B & B’s and luxurious inns. After a round of golf, horseback riding or skiing, enjoy surprisingly diverse dining options, from pizza and ice cream to gourmet meals with an award winning wine. Outdoor activities range from easy gazing at natural wonders to lively paddling on either the Hudson or Schroon rivers which are ideal for canoeing, kayaking and rafting. Natural Stone Bridge and Caves, one of North America’s oldest rock formations, has attracted visitors since revolutionary days. Three beautiful lakes and many quiet streams appeal to boaters and anglers alike. A tradition of celebrating the arts began years ago when New York stage stars came north to play and perform at resort hotels. It continues today as Chester honors its literary legacy with gatherings that celebrate the work of Yeats, father and son, and of native daughter Jeanne Robert Foster whose poems about her rural neighbors have been set to music by Adirondack folk singers. Chester - experience our haven and let it refresh your spirit!
