It was fantastic. Better that the usual B & B. It is an original old Inn. Breakfast was really nice and the rooms were very authentic - but the beds were comfortable. Will stay there again a real find.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Staff was not friendly nor helpful."
I stayed overnight with my daughter who is 10 and I was not happy with the hotel management. The front desk clerk or manager was very curt and not friendly or helpful at all. There was a full kitchen on site, however breakfast was very mediocre. Room was very small, shower tiny. Was overpriced for what it offered. I'm sure there is much better to choose […] from nearby.

"Charming and comfortable, but overpriced"
It is a charming, comfortable and cozy inn, however it is over priced for what it offers. Great lobby with a fireplace and a very warm friendly atmosphere. The room was small, and the bathroom, although en suite, was tiny. The beds were moderately comfortable. The restaurant and bar are good. The location is convenient and there are lots of stores, […] restaurants and pubs in walking distance. It is about a 15/20 minute drive to Okemo Mountain where we were skiing. I paid roughly $140 for one night. I think that was too much for a small room with two twin (single) size beds. The bathroom has a sink so small it is difficult to wash your face without getting water on the floor. The floor of the bathroom was peeling back at the edges (cheap vinyl flooring), and the bathroom window was painted/jammed shut (kind of smells a bit if you are sharing the room with someone and use the toilet). The shower drain clogged a bit (about two inches of water by the end of my shower)- but drained eventually. If the place cost $70 a night, or even $80 it would have been reason.

"Quick Ski Trip"
With all the B&Bs and "Inns" in the area its hard to separate the truly "cozy" and the rundown. This property is very clean and comfortable. Although dated, the look is cozy and feels clean and managed well. The old victorian house feel is pleasant, but everything works and is pretty new within the rooms. Great rate, good staff, standard amenities. […] Fresh towels, linens as with any hotel stay and 15mins from the mountain, with a couple of decent places to eat. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Quaint Bed and Breakfast"
I loved the whole atmosphere and charm of the Inn. The beds were extremely comfortable and the owners were very welcoming. Looking forward to staying there again next time I am in the area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A good find"
Great old Inn with restaurant and Bar. A food place to stay when skiing.Genuine Expedia guest review
Owners very warm and welcoming. Room small but cozy and kept the window open for fresh air. Restaurants both serve the same food which was delicious and affordable. The breakfast buffet is generous. Would return. Well situated to travel to other points of interest. Many darling shops nearby.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Quaint Vermont Inn"
We went for our 12th anniversary and to enjoy peek foliage. The Inn was lovely in a picturesque small town. It's not far from other nice areas in VT, Weston, Woodstock and the room was neat, well kept and with an attached twin bedroom, very spacious. A nice 'continental' breakfast included was generous and filled with homemade baked treats. I would […] recommend this Inn for a cozy stay with comfort food. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice quaint Inn."
It was a nice quaint old Inn. No TV . We had a delicious lunch on the front porch. Nice breakfast in a bright cheerful room looking out on the back deck. Bright cheerful bedroom. Clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
Innkeeper was accommodating at the last minute. Great food in the tavern. Spotlessly clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"don't get a double room!!!"
we originally booked a double room. I WAS VERY VERY VERY SMALL. Barely enough room to walk around in and the bathroom was no bigger than a small closet. We were lucky enough to be able to upgrade to a queen suit which was better. Wifi wasn't great. No TV. NO ice or refrigerator. Owner looked like he just rolled out of bed and when I asked to take my […] meal from the tavern. I was asked to be careful and got a strange look. Like I was a kid and would spill everything and make a mess. The restaurant we did not eat in as there was nothing there that looked good and was way to expensive. Would not go back as I would have rather stayed in a hotel and had a bigger room with more in it and paid less. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"I will stay here any time I am in Vermont :)"
I will stay here any time I am in Vermont :) This is a very old New England building, but is extremely clean, well maintained and decorated. If you like the chain hotels this probably isnt for you, but I prefer to stay in a more relaxed atmosphere so this was ideal for me. Proprietors were extremely friendly and helpful, I was instantly comfortable […] when I arrived - MUCH more of a home-away-from-home than chain hotels! Breakfast was superb, this was an order of magnitude better than the "continental breakfast" that was advertised and much more than I expected. (Note: breakfast included everything I might want except meat & eggs.) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Cozy, charming, comfortable."
The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The on site bar menu is a bit pricey, but for the convenience of not having to go anywhere, and still be able to watch a sports game in the bar is very nice. Excellent beer menu. The lobby is very comfortable - feel like you are at a special place. We had an early morning, and the staff made sure to put […] out breakfast for us - it was about an hour before they would have otherwise. Fantastic! I would stay again in a heartbeat.

"Lovely Vermont Location"
Room #2 is small, but adequate, with comfortable double bed. Bathroom is tiny, but clean. Could have used a chair to sit in and relax - bed is the only place to sit, besides a straight-back wooden chair. Owners friendly and helpful. Enjoyed sitting on front porch and watching the world go by. Also enjoyed relaxing outside in back of Inn - nice grounds, […] Adirodack chairs. Town commons a pleasant stroll, a few interesting shops. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Charming historical building"
Overall it was a pleasant stay. Room decoration was simple and nice. Bed, sheets, and coverts very clean, cozy...I had a good night sleep. The bathroom was tooooo small, but what can you expect in an old house? Very good location, Main street of Chester.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Too pricey for what's actually offered."
Too expensive for such small space. The breakfast was just okay in co Parison to other places around town.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A trip back in time"
The Fullerton Inn was truly a step back in time to a place we didn't know existed any longer. The location is in a beautiful little village filled with friendly, hard-working people. The inn itself was very well-kept and clean as was our room. There were a few places nearby in which to eat but there was no need as the dining at the inn itself was excellent. […] Overall, my wife and I enjoyed our stay at the Fullerton and will stay there again should our travels put us nearby. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great history and great restaurant attached."
No need to travel after you check in. Go for a walk and then dine in their restaurant with wonderful food.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff was polite and the hotel was beautiful. The bed was a bit stiff and the front handle didn't work. So when we unlocked the door to the hotel we still couldn't get in and had to break out the credit card.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My girlfriend and I stayed here for a night over Memorial Day weekend because we were site seeing in the area and were up for something a little more quaint and warm than another chain motel. Maybe we just came at the wrong time of year but the place had a dead and vacant feel. Hotels.com indicated only "1 room left" yet the place was desolate. We arrived […] to find a "Restaurant Closed" sign on the porch, a pile of broken furniture and junk in front with a "Free" sign on it, and a pack of loitering teenagers directy in front of the inn discussing who knew someone that could buy alcohol for them. We walked in and there was no one around anywhere, and no indication of how to summon someone. We hung out for about 10 minutes before one of the owners came down. Overall the stay was adequate. The room was clean and pleasant, the back garden has potential (perhaps still too early in the year) and the continental breakfast was excellent (including delicious blueberry and rasberry/white chocolate scones!). I refer to the stay as "unremarkable" because we didn't find any of the warmth, charm, or hospitality that was our original reason for staying at a Vermont inn. In the end it was just a clean and comfortable place to flop. We had a warmer reception at the Keene HI Express the night before. Perhaps in busier times when there are more guests and the restaurant is open there is greater hospitality? Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"best hotel in area"
The hotel was the best one in the area as far as I could tell. They have a small bar area, seats 4 plus numerious bar tables,the bartendar was really friendly, a nice fireplace also in bar area. Alot of local folks were hanging out drinking and eating. The hotel has a good menu, also a large rest. room in the back of hotel. Cute,cozy entrance way with […] large couches, puzzle on table that anyone can help do, checker table out, very inviting atmosphire. Breakfast was ready at 8. Made our own waffles, bagels, fresh fruit,granola, yogurt. Ate in a smaller room looking out into the large backyard. The owner was a real friendly man. The rooms were very clean, had our own bathroom. Keep in mind that the house is 1922. The decor complaments the age. No tv in room. Not that kind of place. Loved the hotel.

"Clean and inviting"
We did not plan at staying at the Fullerton Inn but found that the motel we booked was unacceptable. So we stayed there only 1 night and then moved to the Fullerton Inn which was great. Clean, inviting, friendly and so much character/charm. If we were to stay again I would request a larger room but all in all, quite nice and would definintely go there […] again.

"Rent a Doc"
I found the hotel by searching for accommodations near Grafton, VT. Grafton Inn was full. I am very glad that Grafton Inn was full because I prefer staying at the Fullerton Inn for several reasons: First, Chester has much more to do than Grafton; Second, the diversity of the stores and businesses in Chester is much greater than Grafton. The Fullerton […] Inn itself is very comfortable and relaxed. I could get away from the stresses of my business much better at the Fullerton. The Grafton Inn is very comfortable and beautiful but it is also stuffy and expensive. The Fullerton is a much better value and that always gives me more relaxation because I am not worrying about the bill. Dollar for dollar I prefer the Fullerton, it is just a nicer feel for me. I am sure you will be very pleased with your experience. I was amazed by the 10 out of 10 rating given by the one reviewer on the Kayak site. the Fullerton is not a 10 for me but it is a very solid 8 out of 10. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Thumbs Up - Fullerton Inn"
07/14/14 Anna N Tewksbury, Massachusetts
Just stayed at the Fullerton Inn, Chester, VT. (July 2014) Loved the comfortable, cozy atmosphere and relaxing music played throughout the day/evening at the inn. The room was exceptionally clean and I rate that the highest experienced. The Innkeepers were most accommodating. The entire staff were most pleasant and helpful. I liked the convenience of having meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) available there too. There were so many places to sit and relax. The outside spaces were great for dining and just enjoying a peaceful day or evening. I did not miss having a television or phone in the room at all. The pace was perfect for slowing down a hurried pace and just getting back to what is important in life. Great place for reflection, writing, and easy conversation. I have always found Vermont so refreshing. The scenery is always wonderful. Nice main street to walk and continue for a long stretch if so desired. I definitely recommend the Fullerton. (Note: Meals could use a little improvement. Several entrees were cooked a bit too long making the fish/meat dry and/or tough. Mention desired result when ordering.)

I have eaten at the Fullerton Inn many times over the past 2 years, mostly in the summer and fall months. The food is always excellent and exciting. Where else can you get jambalaya, arctic char, or black bean pesto in Vermont ? Dining on the porch , watching time go by in Chester is very relaxing. The wait staff, especially Ashley, are attentive and quite helpful. There is a full menu for people travelling with children, too. What a great place to spend a nice evening, eating great food !!

My wife and I and another couple visited this inn several years ago and haven't had the opportunity to return. It is a piece of Americana in rural Vermont that will not disappoint you if you're looking for a nice room, great food (serving breakfast and dinner) and great staff. It has an attached small bar and a great wood burning fire place for the cool autumn or cold winter nights.
"Well located and good value"
04/13/14 Mark L Island of Malta, Malta
We chose the Fullerton for its central location to many of the best sights in central and southern Vermont. The Inn is attractive from the outside and has a welcoming lobby and lounge with a large fireplace. Breakfast and dinner at the restaurant were very good and there's also a tavern serving some good local beers. The bedroom was on the the small side, and pretty basic, but we slept reasonably well. Our only complaint was the discovery of an empty bottle, cups and dust under the beds. Clearly this area hadn't been cleaned for quite a long time.

excellent on every level. great continental bfast...waffles, fruit, baked goods, yogurt, juices. just what you would want except hot eggs and bacon. So what? it was excellent. the room was well decorated and comfortable. the lobby was warm and inviting. the restaurant was reasonably priced with excellent food and service.
03/11/14 Cathy G Guilderland, New York
What a great find--quiet, clean, relaxing, nice room, friendly staff--breakfast included and very adequate--no rush-- We stayed the weekend of the time change and the inn staff posted reminders to change the time. Chester was easy to walk around and close enough to other tourist places nearby. The peace and quiet at the inn was relaxing, the fireplace inviting, the food was very good and reasonably priced--we ate in the tavern or the main restaurant the 2 nights we were there.

Charming country inn bed and breakfast, friendly staff, great location in Chester, wonderful breakfast! We arrived fairly late and were still checked in with a smile. Breakfast included fresh made giant waffle, bagels, cereals, oatmeal, fresh fruit salad, donuts, juice, hot coffee, tea, etc.
01/13/14 Deirdre D Clearwater, Florida
Great place to stay- beautiful old house, nicely decorated in general but xmas decorations were even more splendid. Breakfast was A+. Innkeepers were very nice, helpful, and accommodating. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Shower head was a bit aggressive in spraying in one stream but no other negative points that I could even find other than that. The location is perfect! If you stay here, make sure to check out the shop called DeVallia Art & Accents next door- that is a must see for anyone, even if you are not a shopper you will appreciate that store!

Stayed 1 Night, Pros, Very attractive Inn, Very clean rooms, comfortable beds. Clean common areas. Very good food from Restaurant. Cons: Restaurant and Tavern SEVERELY UNDERSTAFFED. Arrived early, had a couple of beers on porch, server was great. Checked in at 3 relaxed as we had a 3 plus hour Motorcycle ride to get there. We were very hungry so at 5:05pm we ventured to Tavern as owner said we could eat there. We were greeted by what I thought was a bartender, but turned out to be a waitress manning the bar, the main dining room and the porch, there was only one other waitress. ( This is only place to eat within a mile and 4 plus INNS. )Started off good our waitress made us drinks and checked with us, then less and less as she got busy, the owner would jump behind the bar and possibly make you a drink or take your empty glass without asking if you wanted another, we asked our waitress for menus and another drink, as our menu was were by owner. She never returned. Finally the owner made us another drink, we flagged down our waitress and were able to order. Food brought to us by the owner, we ate then all service vanished. Asked for tab and left. Wait staff works hard but are totally overworked, No busboy, no bartender to make there drinks. The TAVERN should not be open without a Bartender ( we asked if we could eat at Bar, never would have had we known there was not Bartender) or at least a dedicated Waiter/Waitress for the Tavern itself. Owners should stick to the INN and have someone else run the Food/ Tavern section of The INN. We will not return.
"Antiquey Vermont B&B"
07/20/13 Juja80301 Boulder, CO
If you would love a big old "house" full of antiques and quilts complete with quirky, creaky floors and a decent dining experience on-site, you'd probably really like the Fullerton Inn. It delivers on the expected old Vermont inn experience. My husband used to come here for dinner with his family 35 years ago when it was known as the Chester Inn, so we stayed for "old times' sake." We tend to be more the modern-amenities type, so can't say we loved it, but it was pretty much what we expected. Lost a possible 'very good' rating from me because I found a used bar of soap and open shampoo in the shower upon check-in. Seemed otherwise clean.
