Being very fussy as to where we stay, Gray Gables and the owners far exceeded our expectations and standards. Super clean, comfortable, large rooms, exceptional view, close to beaches, trails, shopping and dining. We are recommending this B&B to all and will return whenever visiting the East coast. I am now hooked on the B & B idea but only... More

We stayed at the Gray Gables for a one night stay day week. Our room was huge, with plenty of closet space and room for luggage. We had a king bed with a fireplace and separate sitting area...with great views of the water. The owners are very interesting hosts with excellent recommendations of the surrounding area. The only shortcoming is... More

Our curling team had the pleasure of occupying all rooms at Gray Gables in Feb 2014. The rooms were spotless and beautifully decorated. While we weren't there in the summer the beauty of the location shone through the snow and cold - it would be spectacular in summer. Jacqui and Dave were very accommodating and wonderful hosts. We even had... More

We wanted to find a spot not too far from Halifax, but near the sea and we were delighted to spend 4 nights at Gray Gables in Chester. We enjoyed a downstairs room with large bathroom and walk-in closet and large window overlooking Mahone Bay. Hosts Jacqui and Dave are delightful hardworking people who strive to make their guests feel... More

We stayed at Gray Gables at the end of a wonderful two week visit to Nova Scotia - would recommend autumn as a great time to visit the Maritimes. This B & B was chosen based on the excellent reviews on the Trip Advisor website and it certainly did not disappoint. Our room was beautifully appointed - love the big... More

Gray Gables is the ultimate in a B&B. Jacqui and Dave (the owners) are fabulous. Jacquie is the most amazing person and prepares an outstanding breakfast. If you want to eat healthy, you get a fruit, yogart, and granalo parfait with whole grain muffins, (delicious). For the hardier appetite, you get a breakfast prepared by a cordon bleu chef, can...

Our three night stay in the Mermaid room was great!! (It's on the main floor so only two steps to get there). The B&B is beautifully appointed and the covered porch is lovely to sit on, rain or shine. Dave did an incredible job on breakfast!! Great walk to Graves Island Provincial Park right from the house. We will return!

We have stayed at Gray Gables on several occasions either as a family of 4 or individually. It is always a wonderful stay when we are there. During the several times we have had the opportunity to stay in all of the three rooms in the house. All are lovely, very comfortable, with great views of Scotch Cove, the islands... More
