Chester offers travelers a quieter alternative to Richmond that is just minutes from I-95. Located near the Pocahontas State Park and Forest, guests to our Chester hotels can swim, canoe and hike in this well-maintained state park and still be close to the city.
Fisherman visiting our Chester hotels can test their skills at Redwater Lake, a reservoir known to local fisherman for its largemouth, smallmouth, spotted, white and striped bass, as well as catfish, crappie, walleye and lake trout. Birdwatchers should definitely visit the Presquile National Wildlife Refuge where waterfowl and other migratory birds are protected.
If the weather calls for staying indoors, Chester hotel guests can let off a little steam at the batting cages at the Ironbridge Sports Park. This indoor sports complex also offers a one-of-a-kind. 18-hole miniature golf course and driving range as well as go-karts and an arcade.
If you have a whole day to explore, head over to Chincoteague Island for a boat tour of the Assateague Refuge. Here you can see wild ponies roaming free in an unspoiled natural paradise.
In Chester, hotel guests enjoy convenient proximity to Richmond combined with all the natural beauty and small town flavor that only Virginia can offer.
