Love the old pictures of this inn!! The Chester Riverside Inn was built in 1800. It is located on one acre in Chester, Massachusetts. An apartment within the inn has been completed. One could live in the apartment while restoring the rest of the inn. The demolition work has already been done and it is a blank slate. The apartment has original hardwood floors and trim. Love the double porches! Five bedrooms, one bathroom, and 4,908 square feet. $195,000 New price: $139,000
