Early Winter 2017 | 13 Stone Hearth Inn & Tavern, Chester The Stone Hearth Inn & Tavern is located off one of the best kept secrets in Windsor county: our secondary trails. When riding in Southern Vermont, be sure to put this on your list of places to ride to. The easiest way to get to the Stone Hearth by snowmobile is from S-32 off Corridor 12, not far from the Chester Lovers Lane parking lot. At the Stone Hearth, you can enjoy a casual lunch or dinner with many other sledheads. In search of a place to stay overnight? Park your trailer and jump right onto the trail early the next day. Need gas for your sled? Ask the owner. Though it is not an official gas station, he keeps gas on hand to help those riders in need.
