Very comfortable & historic B&B run by Suzi the owner. We had a lovely shabby-chic suite that fit our needs perfectly. Oh so comfortable bed - did not want to get up! Great breakfast. Picturesque little town that simple words cannot describe. Citizens of this enclave are extremely friendly & accomodating. Do visit!

I was coming to Chester for a small solo bike tour and stayed at this B&B. The service was great! Beds were comfy and rooms are cute. Breakfast in the morning was excellent! Suzi, the owner, was laid-back and knowledgeable about the area and helpful to folks that were staying longer. She accommodated my bike while I was there. The... More

We enjoyed the hospitality and ambience of the Mecklenburgh Inn 14 years ago. It was lovely, so we decided to repeat the experience 14 years later and are glad we did. Very comfortable, clean rooms, a relaxed host and a delightful breakfast. Suzi is celebrating 25 years in the B & B business; she must know something about it! Chester... More

A recent two-night stay reconfirmed the charming Mecklenburgh Inn as our favorite accommodation in the Chester area. The delightful owner, Suzi, offers a first class breakfast and abundant local knowledge. The Inn retains its historical authenticity, while the rooms are bright and airy, with exquisite bedding and many other thoughtful extras. Suzi's extensive travels are reflected in the interesting and... More

After almost 10 years of annual stays, staying at "the Meck" is like staying at a friend's place, but that exceptional level of service is offered to everyone, not just regulars. If you are travelling anywhere on the South shore, press on to Chester and stay with Suzi and Jet. Highly recommended.

This was our second stay at the Mecklenburgh. We love the inn and Suzi, the owner is wonderful. Her breakfasts are to die for. The inn is situated in the center of Chester, which is a lovely seaside village on the south shore of Nova Scotia. Definitely worth the trip.

Anyone going to the South Shore of Nova Scotia, specifically Chester, should stay at the Mecklenburgh Inn, Suzi is a great hostess, I was shocked at the amazing breakfast she prepared plus the rooms were amazing. I would definitely return to the Mecklenburgh Inn!!!

D, Next time you're in town I hope you can stay longer. A round of golf on our 18 hole course or tennis at the public courts...or maybe a boat tour of the Bay. It all awaits you here in Chester. Hope to see you again. Suzi More

After two and a half weeks of traveling throughout New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, I was exhausted. I am so glad that this "let down" happened in Chester at the Mecklenburgh Inn.

Recently spent a relaxing night in Chester at the Mecklenburgh and as usual everything was ship shape. Suzi, the owner, makes everybody feel comfortable and she turns out a superior breakfast in the morning at the main table. No formal process here when checking in.
